Following the split of his old band Purple Divide, Guitarist/Vocalist Dale Sutherland looked to challenge himself with a new project. After experimenting with his song writing, Dale set his sights on a sound heavier than Purple Divide. With a focus on big dynamic riffs and drawing influence from bands such as Arcane Roots, Biffy Clyro, Muse, Oceansize and Marmozets, the sound of Alkanes began to develop.
Forming in 2014, featuring the drummer from Aberdeen band Talking Sideways, Gary Wilson and now joined by Donald Barclay from Daydream Frenzy on Bass, Alkanes have hit the ground running and shared the stage with some of the finest up and coming acts in the Rock & Metal scene including Carnivores, Axis Of, Bear Arms and ACODA. The band are looking to continue their journey with a debut single release in the Summer of 2015.
