    In the summer of 2013 in the city of Preston in the Northwest of England, a group of misfits got together for a new musical project with the aim of creating something completely unique. Each musician coming from a different musical background drawing in influences from the likes of Alice Cooper, Lordi, The Skints, Stolen Babies, Scar Symmetry, Diablo Swing Orchestra, Iron Maiden, Alter Bridge, Jason Becker and Avatarium.

    Since the release of their debut EP in January 2015 the band have gone from strength to strength, headlining shows in and around the North West with an ever-growing fan base. The highlights of Ward XVI's career so far include playing the main stage at O2 Academy Leeds in the final of the Soundwaves music competition, supporting William Control and The Men that will not be Blamed for Nothing. After a great response from the release of their self-titled EP the band have recently returned to the studio to record a 12 track concept album titled "The Art of Manipulation" which is due to be released 01/07/2017.

about

The Art of Manipulation"is a 12-Track concept album telling the introspective story of a female psychopath locked away in a high security asylum. Throughout the album she delves into her past life and tells the story of how she manipulated a man into killing for her using her feminine charm.

This 16 track concept album tells the sordid tale of deceit and manipulation represented with a genre defying mix of hard-hitting metal riffs, soaring guitar solos, off-beat ska rhythms, melancholic piano, accordion, catchy female vocals, a hint of electro.
