Switches were an indie rock band which formed in Guildford, England in 2005. They consist of Matt Bishop (vocals, guitar), Ollie Thomas (guitar), Thom Kirkpatrick (bass) and Steve Godfrey (drums). The band's debut album "Heart Tuned to D.E.A.D." was released on April 23, 2007 in the UK and on March 18, 2008 in the US (under the title "Lay Down the Law"). Singer/Guitarist Matt Bishop grew up on the Essex coast where the edgy glitz of Southend seafront did nothing more than inspire Madison Square Garden fantasies.
