He was shortly joined by Lex (then a performing arts student), their influances were mutual and their connection was soon to become the foundations of Reign of Sirius . They then recruited a classical pianist and accordian player from manchester known as The brid who became the Keyboardist, they then started rehearsing with a drum machine and backing track programmed manually by mayo . The band was joined by nikki moores who did backing vocals for a while. But it wasn t until the 1st of December 2007 that they did their first gig. The gig was a local success and Reign of Sirius was officiallyFormed as they continued gigging with the drum machine set-up. Before the end of the year Nikki and R.O.S parted ways and the next member was hired. Charlie a nursery nurse from maccclesfield was hired to play Bass for R.O.S and this line-up continued until the end of 2009, touring in london under management company Rock of Ages Entertainment ( who spotted R.O.S at a Showcase at the Carling BH2 in london). The band even managed to produce a single along the way with their own recording equipment, spawning their hit Dragonheart . But then the band decided a reform was in order and started to audition drummers for the return in 2010, and split from Rock of ages entertainment . The return (marked as The Arrival) would see The Arrival E.P and Tour, along with an internet tv station ROS TV and a complete re-design of the bands promotions and websites produced by Lex.
