In May we've got the fantastic Angel Olsen at our place!! You can check out a wicked chat and live session on NPR's World Cafe over at: http://www.npr.org/sections/world-cafe/2017/01/03/508037549/angel-olsen-on-world-cafe

It's all about her 2016 album 'My Woman'  'which shatters any wrongful assumptions anyone may have made about the North Carolina musician's melancholy tendencies. It features knockout vocals, driving guitars and a killer sense of humor that makes no apologies. Olsen is a tough-as-nails auteur with a distinct vision and the chops to execute it — from writing, arranging and co-producing My Woman to directing three of its music videos. She visited World Café to tear it up with live performances and to talk about rewriting her reputation, owning her vision and why she'll always find it easy to "be sad and complain."'

Emmure - Cancelled!

Please note that our show with Emmure has been cancelled, here's a statement from the band:

To our European Supporters,

It is with our most sincere apologies that we will need to cancel the upcoming Torch The Earth tour. Upon the initial planning of this tour our goal was to return to Europe in 2017 pairing a new record with the tour. Unfortunately some unexpected delays have hindered our chances of releasing the record in this time frame.

We appreciate that our fans understand how important this release is to us, it is a record we have put so much effort into on every angle, and we feel we would be selling our fans and ourselves short if we compromised the overall release of it.

We promise to be back at a later time in 2017, and with a brand new record. Refunds will be available at point of purchase for all cancelled shows. 

Spring King - Postponed!

Please note our Spring King show tomorrow has been POSTPONED, with a new date to be announced asap. News from the band:

“’Hi folks - sorry to announce that we are postponing the following shows. Tarek has a nasty virus and needs time to recover’:

Tonight Fri 21 Oct - Swn Festival, Cardiff - Estrons & Sandinistas are stepping in
Sat 22 Oct - Nottingham Rescue Rooms
Sun 23 Oct - Oxford O2 Academy

We will be rescheduling these shows and will let you know on dates asap!”

 

Japanese House New Vid

The Japanese House aka Amber Bain will be here on November 1st for what we expect to be an excellent gig, and she's just released a brand new video for 'Face Like Thunder', which you can check out here:

NME had the scoop earlier, and said:

When we spoke to The Japanese House (aka Amber Bain) back in August, she stressed the importance of the androgyny and ambiguity in her vocals. “I like that my voice is androgynous. By taking away a person's identity, all that you have to focus on is the music and I quite like that idea.”

On ‘Face Like Thunder’, Bain’s voice is as human and as honest it's ever been, and showcases the limits she can push it to but still retain her forward thinking pop sound. There's still her stunning vocal gymnastics, but you get a sense that with each release we see more of who Amber is, all while staying wickedly mysterious and intriguing.

Today she shares the video for the single which you can watch below, in anticipation of her new EP 'Swim Against The Tide', due on November 11 via Dirty Hit.

Tix are available for her show here at http://bit.ly/2dxfHN1
