Formed in 2009, The Standby Setting are an alternative-rock band based in Nottingham/Derbyshire.

We’ve played countless gigs, consumed our fair share of greasy chips and pints of cider, not to mention the amount of velvet jackets we’ve worn through.

Our fourth EP ‘Tough Skin’ is available for free download via BandCamp.

The new line up sees Adam Squires on drums, Richard Battson on electric guitar, Mark Wroe on bass and long serving front man Jake Hampson; The Standby Setting aim to make 2015 their busiest year to date.
