'Guild Theory's ability to seamlessly navigate the transition from intricate prog-rock compositions to a more mainstream-friendly sound is commendable. It speaks to the band's musical maturity and their commitment to pushing boundaries while ensuring their music remains inviting to a diverse audience.'

We Write About Music -

Guild Theory is a British alternative rock band duo consisting of Matt Smith (vocals and lyrics, synths) and Rob Lewis (music, multi-instrumentation).

Formed in February 2022, Matt and Rob began recording music together remotely after the two met on a music forum.


The two musicians have been working together since, creating their unique blend of alternative and progressive rock. 


Guild Theory self-produced and published their debut album, 'Streaks Of Light Burn The Sky' in May 2023; it is a fusion of musical styles with influences as wide ranging as The Cooper Temple Clause, Porcupine Tree, A Perfect Circle, Oceansize, and Midlake.

The pair's second album 'The Mellified Man' is on track to be released in the first half of 2024.
