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
North Wales indie-grunge three-piece, fronted by the enchanting Ritzy Bryan. Abandoning the traditional record industry route, they came to prominence upon releasing 2009 mini album 'A Balloon Called Moaning' as a free download.
Their Breeders and Yeah Yeah Yeahs brand of indie-rock, with their trademark sound of crashing guitars and tight hooks, has seen them gain continual support by BBC 6 Music and a loyal fan base.
The Joy Formidable tour dates
Air Traffic are an alternative rock band formed in Bournemouth, England in 2005 while at sixth-form college. The band is composed of Chris Wall (vocals, piano), Tom Pritchard (guitar), and James Maddock (bass guitar) as well as a live drummer.
Air Traffic tour dates
Formed at the start of 2014, October Drift may be a little known and mysterious project at the moment, but they wear their heart on their musical sleeves. They’ve been digesting a stock of Smashing Pumpkins, The National and My Bloody Valentine records, constantly rehearsing and playing under the radar shows – which have gained them a word of mouth popularity. Continuing to shun social media, appearing clandestine behind ambiguous placards with mysterious balaclava-clad characters appearing through the cities they play, the band continue to communicate with their fans purely one-on-one.
October Drift tour dates
The Duke Spirit's vocalist Liela Moss goes solo and releases her debut album 'My Name Is Safe in Your Mouth' through the Bella Union label.

Sam Forrest (Nine Black Alps) tour dates
Manchester based noise-pop and grunge DIY three-piece. Their fuzz-drenched approach to alternative rock carries echoes of underground ‘90s champions like Cave In, Hundred Reasons, Idlewild and Garbage. They were named Steve Lamacq's favourite new discovery of 2016.
False Advertising tour dates
'Civil Protection have an edgy, dissident vibration that is certain to resonate with people from all walks of life that may feel that their liberty has been eroded by an intrusive and overreaching government element, while others will be certain to enjoy the driving beat, tempo, and musicality of the compositions'.
The five piece rock band is from York / Huddersfield.
