Dissident Prophet was formed in 1994 by Andy Jennings and guitarist Tom Livemore. They signed to a mainstream label backed by Duran Duran’s management straight after their second gig. Their debut release, We’re Not Grasshoppers, got them accolades from Melody Maker, Metal Hammer and Kerrang! After three years of touring and recording the label folded, but the band continued. In 2004 they took a break to raise families, and Tom moved to Hollywood to work for Dave Stewart and Interscope Records. Tom returned in 2012, and the band relaunched with Weapons of Mass Deception. Over the last couple of years Dissident Prophet has enjoyed a wide and diverse range of interest from the likes of Andrew Marston’s BBC Introducing… in Hereford & Worcester to WeAre1Radio’s 'War Of The Bands' in Bogotá, Colombia.
