Artist Biography: Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate have been developing a cult reputation through their award winning albums, endorsements from rock legends (including former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett) and passionate live performances, however they came to wider attention when they stepped in at the last minute to replace an injured band on the main stage at Hard Rock Hell’s Prog Festival in Wales on November 2017, one of the world’s leading indoor progressive rock events. They performed to over 1000 people, opening for Magnum, Focus and Carl Palmer. They were described by Hard Rock Hell magazine as ‘unlikely stars who stole the show’, by eFestivals as the ‘highlight of the festival’, and now have a busy festival schedule for 2019. They have been broadcast on over 100 radio stations/shows/podcasts/TV channels.

Song Lyrics: “Stand Up”
You tell me this never happened
I was there I heard the voices
We’re supposed to pretend to forget, but refuse to disappear
A repeated lie becomes history, search your mind to find a true memory
Memory solves the prisoners dilemma
Forgiveness tames the world
Liars accuse, fake news, fake camouflage, throw enough till it sticks
Though it stinks, it’s all a game for someone like you
Smear and shame, play the blame game
Fan the flames, higher and higher
This is their kind of fire, and it will burn us all down
When we forget about history, when we hide behind lies
When resistance is necessary, stand up stand up, stand up
When we airbrush our memories, when we staple our smiles
When forgiveness is necessary, stand up.
When they painted us as traitors, I almost let myself down
Surrender tempting, simple end, outsource morality
Losing track of what I’m meant to forget, post-truth,
Poster boys deployed with their cheat-sheets,
Hotshot faces, scripted gravity
When no-one stands, till someone else stands
We’re all complicit, one day stand fast, stand first
Set the precedent
There’s a future still unwritten, no destiny only choice
The world is ours for the making, breaking open the shell, and unlock the voice
