He has graced stages around the world playing alongside musical icons such as Brian May but now Ed Graham is commencing a new musical adventure.

Formerly drummer of Lowestoft's most successful rock band, The Darkness, Ed Graham has toured the world and released platinum-selling albums.

But since departing The Darkness in 2014, Mr Graham has gone on to form a new musical project with singer-songwriter Angus Duprey, keyboard player Rebecca Waller, Lowestoft, and guitarists Pete Turrell and David Donley both heralding from Norwich.

Former East Point Academy student, Mr Graham said: 'After The Darkness, I took some time out of music enjoying summer festivals and Christmas 2014, before starting work with Angus early in 2015.

'I'm very excited about this new band, our songs and playing live again.

Taking their name from a song written by lead singer Angus Duprey, Puppets to the Supreme Commander have already begun recording sessions at Ashwood Studios in Norwich, for a debut album to be released later this year.
