Founding members Melyssa Shannon (Vocals) Jonny Woods (Guitar) Aaron Black (Guitar) and Matty Killen (Drums) found themselves auditioning bass players before their first headline tour and found him in the form of Carl Gilmore.
To mark WYNONA BLEACH’s beginnings the band released “Eyes Burning” - recorded and made available to the world by themselves. They are punk in spirit with big songs, and big guitars from listening to bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, MBV, Placebo, Catherine Wheel, Beck, Killing Joke, and Black sabbath.
WYNONA BLEACH are a force to be reckoned with live. They played BBC Introducing stages at Reading and Leeds festivals, supported Feeder, and performed on a televised celebration of the BBC Introducing music show (Across the Line) in Northern Ireland at a sold out show in the Ulster Hall in Belfast. They have played underground club shows in Berlin, London, promoting previous self recorded & released EP’s “Pillow Talk” and "NO CHILL" and in 2017 while promoting their track “Heavy Friends” returned from a successful 12 date headline tour of Russia.
