Info Edit

Influenced by the likes of Will Haven, Deftones and Quicksand, Earshot's fusion of Hardcore, Nu-Metal and Emo essentially spearheaded the explosion of similar young bands in the area, along with Folkestone outfit Breakneck, a band with which they played on a regular basis.

The band formed under the name Flipside, but changed name to Earshot around the beginning of 1999 after initial drummer Martyn left.
