Our debut EP 'Life After Death'

About Us

Clay Soldiers Line-up
Clay Soldiers performing at New Music Fest 2023

Formed in London, 2020; we are a rock band, combining melodic guitars and heavy rocking grooves along with grunge and stoner-rock elements.

It is through dark chapters and the desperation of life's struggles that have shaped the balance of our music, with the aim of reaching out to others, in reflection of our own experiences and to help build communities through music.

Our most notable achievements to date are achieving the Pipebomb Radio NYC 'Artist of the Month' in April 2021, as well as reaching the top four of the 'Isaac Banks Top Ten Singles' on Banks Radio Australia with our debut single 'Ghost (Piano Edit)'. In addition, we ran a successful campaign and managed to sell out all available tickets for the EP Release show at the Fighting Cocks, Kingston on the 16th July, 2022.

Our debut EP 'Life After Death' has received over 11,000 streams in over 70 countries worldwide and it is available via all major streaming platforms as well as our Bandcamp page.

Furthermore, Team Clay Soldiers reached 6th place of the Radio Indie Alliance Top Ten and awarded 'Band Of The Day' by Maximum Volume Music magazine. We also reached the Quarter-finals of Metal To The Masses in London.

With the new acquisition of guitarist, James, the sound of Clay Soldiers continues to evolve and strengthen. James brings the classic blues, stoner-rock elements that was evident during the earlier Clay Soldiers period. 

Clay Soldiers are:

Leon: Vocals/guitar

James: Guitar

Stu: Bass

Pablo: Drums
