A'priori brings a guitar driven sound with a classic edge to their modern rock style. Despite an industry that has diluted rock music to the point where one can’t even be sure there’s such a thing as straight rock ‘n roll anymore, A'priori give the pure rock fans what they need and desire. With exhilarating guitar solos, raspy, powerful vocals and keyboards that reinforce the sound with such precision and depth, the lack of a bass guitar is unnoticeable and refreshing, A'priori will leave you begging for more!
A'priori began in 2007 by Tony Lang and brother Mouse in the green isles of Southern Ireland. With influences from the likes of TRex, Guns n Roses, Kiss, The Doors, David Bowie and a love of Classical music influenced their writing style in such a way that it created the unique sound that is A'priori. The addition of Mark Stuart on keyboard brings a completely modern edge to the sound, and gives a more extensive range to their upcoming material.
Early on they played with Eric Bell of Thin Lizzy at the Noel Reading Festival. They played the Clonakilty International Guitar Festival and they travelled the length and breadth of the UK playing gigs and spreading the A'priori sound. They went on to support Dave Evans of AC/DC at the Blackpool in 2012 Tour. They played at Hellfest 2013 and Lowther Live 2013. They played sold out gigs at Layton Institute in 2011 and 2012.
