The Great Divide formed in 2011 in a converted garage in the outskirts of Rome, Italy. Finds its sound and defines its own language somewhere between the hard rock of Velvet RevolverBackyard BabiesFoo Fighters, and the grunge of Alice in Chains and Stone Temple Pilots, with crossover and alternative rock influences.

The band recorded their first Album (UNION – 2017) in a weekend, in the old fashioned way: live, “plug and play” into the amps, without editing in post production, looking for the same magic, energy and interplay heard on the albums of the seventies.

These words can well describe the band: Raw, Fast, Loud. Human, Chilled Out & Soothing. 

This is The Great Divide.

With their Atlantic Hangover Rock The Great Divide welcomes you with a mix of American/European Hard Rock in a race that is going to leave you gasping for air.

A fistful of stones right in your face, blended with melodic yet powerful vocals that will lead you through the entire set until the last act, when you’ll finally be set free into an higher state of consciousness.
