DETOUR 180 captured the attention of thousands of New Zealand music fans when it performed before a crowd of 23,000 earlier this year at the Parachute Music Festival, which quickly propelled the group into the national media spotlight. Releasing in the U.S. on Cross Driven Records, DETOUR 180's self-titled project is a power-packed combination of acoustic-driven pop and energetic rock, reminiscent of bands like the Foo Fighters, Goo Goo Dolls, Creed, and Lifehouse, among others. DETOUR 180 features a collection of cleverly-crafted songs written entirely by Chapman and Cooper, and produced by Scarlet, the band's unofficial leader. Detour 180 certainly isn't the first band to write cryptic lyrics that mean what you want them to mean. But they're one of the few bands to swing to such extremes. The latter two-thirds of their album indulges in obvious declarations of worship. The best comparison I can make here is to Delirious, a worship band that ranges from praise to poetry and everything in between. Detour 180 begins with the poetry and then completely shifts to praise. With their heartfelt explosive sound, detour makes a fresh contribution to nz music on a standing of its own. ready or not world, here they come - detour is amping to rock.
