Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar.


We are currently looking for a bass player and potentially a keyboard player from around the Barnsley/Sheffield area to join us, with the hope of rehearsing towards gigs and recording new original songs up in our studio. Where easy going and like a laugh but we believe in what where doing and know we can do great things with the right people, so give listen to some of the tunes as they range from acoustic to indie to alternative and if you like what you hear give us a shout.


Status Unknown is a charismatic band with a fondness for punk rock and alternative music. Hailing from Barnsley, England, the group set out to create music by combining powerful melodies with infectious energy.

The band’s recent release is a brand new EP titled “Population 1” - a great taste of Status Unknown’s sonic vision and perspective. The Ep marks a really positive step forward for this band, whose sound is becoming increasingly more personal and defined.

The EP’s tone makes me think of bands such as R.E.M, Dinosaur Jr., Superchunk or early Foo Fighters: there is a great balance between catchy songwriting and gritty edges, adding palatability to the music while retaining a personable and authentic tone.

“Traffic Lights” is probably one of the band’s catchiest songs, with jangly guitar chops and catchy grooves pulsating through the beat.
On songs such as “Ain’t Life Sweet”, the band also hints at some 60s influences, tipping the hat to bands such as The Kinks or The Beatles with some awesome vocal harmonies.
