Back in 2007, 12 Stone Toddler were indisputably one of the most exciting and original bands to have come out of an already vibrant and buzzing music scene in Brighton; music capital of the UK’s South Coast. They were quickly identified as a group highly likely to break through by all those who heard them.
Two superb albums – DOES IT SCARE YOU? (2007) and SCHEMING (2009) came out in quick succession. They consolidated the band’s cult following, achieved rapturous critical acclaim and amassed considerable support, but then, like something from one of their own songs, the band simply disappeared.
10 years on, 12 Stone Toddler made a comeback! After signing to Freshly Squeezed, 12 Stone Toddler released their third studio album ‘Idiolalia’ in Autumn 2018. This return was accompanied by a new in lineup. The four founder members were joined by songwriters Ben Jones and Chris Otero on keyboards, bass and vocals respectively.
