The William Blakes are fearless. The band's four members have known each other since they were teenagers. The William Blakes received outrageous reviews in their home country for their debut ‘Wayne Coyne’, released on Speed of Sound; an album that was heralded as ‘the best Danish release in years’. The four members are involved in other musical bands, but The William Blakes is the core project for these four friends. They have made music together for more than ten years. Their sound is both anthemic and catchy, both rough and righteous. They started to perform live only recently, adding their friends We Are Brothers on stage for intense and praised shows. This filmed performance was their first acoustic performance ever.
