The UK-based heavy metal band Collibus is getting ready to make history, as they will be given a tremendous honor of becoming the first rock band ever to have a performance at the House of Commons on November 19, 2013.
The ‘Dead Inside’ musicians have managed to win the 2013 Discretionary Rock Award of Rock the House, which is Parliament’s biggest competition and the band is set to perform a number of their songs from the highly-anticipated record – titled ‘The False Awakening’ – in order to kick off the 2014 competition.
Gemma Fox, the lead singer of Collibus said, “We never imagined that entering Rock the House would lead to us winning the Rock award, getting a slot to play Download Festival, and now making history by playing a set in Parliament. It’s an honour to kick off the 2014 competition while launching our album in Parliament ‘ we urge all musicians to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity and enter.”
Mike Weatherley MP, the founder of Rock the House and Intellectual Property Advisor to David Cameron said that he was blown away by the band’s music and that he is excited to see them perform their set. He also stated that he is proud to provide a Parliamentary platform to a different demographic.
