Former singer for hardcore outfit Million Dead turned folk troubador, Frank Turner has seen his fame flourish through, essentially, the old fashioned route - hard work, continuous gigging and word of mouth. His singer-songwriter solo career steadily grew from cult status to an arena filler, eventually playing London's O2 and Wembley Stadium.
It has been an eventful decade for the troubadour from Winchester who now resides in Holloway, North London. Turner released his debut album, “Sleep is For The Week”, in 2007 and has been on a stunning upward curve ever since. He is now one of the country’s most cherished songwriters, a man who plays the biggest venues in the land and whose records reach the higher echelons of the charts but who has never lost sight of his original MO: write, record, tour, repeat.
His blend of folk-punk-rock and powerful lyrics has seen him continue playing to an already devoted fanbase, but he picks up new fans with every festival appearance and tour.
Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls 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
London Indie four-piece named after a (now defunct) chain of Indian restaurants, Bombay Bicycle Club have spiced up the music scene since their arrival in 2005. Their profile and success has grown with every release, notching up three top 10 albums including 2014's no.1 'So Long, See You Tomorrow'. The boys were also chosen to play at the BT London Live concert in Hyde Park at the end of the 2012 London Olympics. They are full proof that Indie guitar bands are not over yet and are still very much hot (Bombay) potatoes.
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.
The seven piece Plymouth band are an accumulation of decades of influence and inspiration: rooted in hardcore/punk, ‘60s protest folk/country and classic rock’n’roll, combined with a grass-roots political overview that embraces anti-war, anti-fascist and pro-community activism.
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, the band have a unique sound, their line-up including slide guitar, a lot of fiddle and at times, banjo.
Kill It Kid tour dates
Former Metronomy bassist Gabriel Stebbing's new indie-guitar-pop band.
Your Twenties tour dates
An aggressive post-rocker trio from Northern Ireland who have had an amazing 2013 touring the world, including supporting Nine Inch Nails in their home town of Belfast.
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 Leeds 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
