Million Dead singer turned folk troubador Frank Turner. His solo career began where Million Dead left off, and since then he has achieved cult status as a singer-songwriter.
Frank Turner tour dates
The Welwyn Garden City trio (Billy Lunn – guitar/vocals, Charlotte Cooper – bass/vocals and Josh Morgan – drums) started playing in their local area in 2003 and, after beating 5000 applicants, they were picked by Michael Eavis to play at Glastonbury. Hype surrounded them in the wake of that performance, and judging by the relentless urgent energy and polished songwriting they are able to conjure up, it seems justified.
The Subways tour dates
The brain-child of disillusioned drummer Joseph Mount, Metronomy are an alternative electronica group producing funk-infused beats, android-esque vocals and highly addictive bass-lines.
Metronomy tour dates
A group of schoolfriends - not even very long ago - formed Bombay Bicycle Club and, under-appreciated in school, took their music out on the London gig circuit, which led to them opening the V Festival in August 2006. They released their debut EP later that year and, still in their teenage years, have received national acclaim for their efforts.
Bombay Bicycle Club tour dates
Pitched somewhere between the dark twang of 16 Horsepower, the punk thrust of Fugazi and Hot Water Music, the crunchy pop of Ted Leo and the protest songs of Dick Gaughan, the band have developed a distinctly progressive and aggressive style, shot through with a healthy dose of grass-roots politics. They rely chiefly on folk/country open tunings and slide guitars to evoke moods that are at odds with the punk orthodoxy.
Crazy Arm tour dates
Instrumental post-rock band from Sheffield. Breaking fuzzy glitch-beats with their guitars and destroying stages with their live performances, this band is not one to miss.
65daysofstatic tour dates
Maybeshewill are an instrumental band based in Leicestershire, UK. Sticking to steadfastly DIY ethics, the band have self recorded all their material to date and aspire to be as self sufficient as possible.
Maybeshewill tour dates
Searing Scottish indie band making heavy soul-fuelled rock influenced by the likes of The Smiths and The Clash. With a punky, psychedelic feel to their music, The Xcerts sound is both truly original and consistently passionate. Fervent live shows and arena-sized tunes make this band ones to watch out for.
The Xcerts tour dates
Pre-war delta blues sounds from this Bath-based student band. A mixture of Tom Waits and Mark Lanegan.
Kill It Kid tour dates
Former Metronomy bassist Gabriel Stebbing's new indie-guitar-pop band.
Your Twenties tour dates
Aggressive post-rockers from Northern Ireland.
And So I Watch You From Afar tour dates
Three Trapped Tigers play a mesmeric mix of menace and snarling riffs, interspersed with calm, eerie and contemplative moments of reserve. Mind-bending masters, blurring the line between math-rock, electro-glitch, and prog.
Three Trapped Tigers tour dates
'Fuses fast, disjointed tunes with dark, Audenesque lyrics and plaintive vocals' -Steve Lamacq.
Flashguns tour dates
Hailing from Sheffield, the quintet bonded many years ago over a shared love of Minnie Riperton, Micheal Jackson, Slayer and martial arts (they met at karate lesson in their local Nether Edge). After their former incarnation (Fierce Panda-signed ThisGIRL) came to its natural demise, the then four-piece recruited keyboardist Matt Jones and Skeletons And The Empty Pockets was born. There's an underlying pop sensibility to these three-minute tracks and yet they are clearly inspired by the bluesy rock 'n' rollbands of yesteryear.
Skeletons & The Empty Pockets tour dates
Oxford's Little Fish is the work of singer songwriter JuJu Sophie. The sound is stripped back, direct and defiantly punky in spirit, but also melodic and true to the song. Her Patti Smith-esque vocals can range from aggressive to powerful.
Little Fish tour dates
A new start for the band formerly known as A Day Left, expect some brilliantly catchy and ferociously intelligent noises in the same vein as Aerogramme and Oceansize.
Vessels tour dates
A genuine freakshow are an artful blend of pop sensibility, icy soundscapes and blistering walls of noise.
Their sound, while impressively focused, covers a range of musical staples, with the group letting influences from Mew to Sigur Ros and The National surface throughout.
A Genuine Freakshow tour dates
