The Son (Symptoms Of Now) are a high energy rock band from the south of England that formed in 2012 when Sav Avvakoumides Jnr met engineer-producer Joshua J Macrae (The Cross/Queen/Pulp/Foo Fighters). With Songs Sav had written he went to work finding the right musicians to form a band…. The players were found and as they say the rest is history. The Son is busy recording their third album which will be available in summer 2016

“here come The Son, Dirty rock ‘n rollers from Surrey and are the sort of band who ooze 70’s rock. Cut them they would bleed a blend of vinyl, alcohol and unsavory substances, Seriously terrific ballsy anthems that burst out of the speakers propelling the listener along with their heady exuberance. These guys can really write and exude huge potential! Here comes The Son and I say….. They’re all right 4/5” Gary Bushell  Street Sounds (August 2015)
