D.I.D. tour dates
25 second assaults alternate with 10 minute sick and twisted trilogies, self destruction, carnage, power, and energy. Over the top of it a girl howls and screams her throat to blood and shreds over moving and powerful, yet meaningless lyrics. It's like a shark attack experience, where you'll find your self mentally swimming in the calm melody before you're hurled through a short, sharp blast of speed and aggression, suddenly you can catch your breath in some sort of oxygen pocket until you're finally ripped up again by the bands variety, unpredictability and ingenious self expression.
Rolo Tomassi tour dates
Tall Ships are an instrument swapping, loop pedal abusing machine who wield so many moves you won't know where to look! The trio fuse the energy and stylings of Battles and Foals with influences as wide ranging as Why?, Prince and Explosions In The Sky to form a dynamic musical marvel, full of excitement and intricacies. Signed to Big Scary Monsters, they won a lot of new fans on their recent tour with Tubelord.
Tall Ships tour dates
Named one of NME's "Bands To Watch For 2012", Wet Nuns are Rob (Guitars) & Alexis (Drums) who have carved a niche for themselves citing women, death, beards, skulls and whiskey amongst their influences. Stomach-churning guitars and ugly drumming produce the trademark lo-fi blues-stoner-punk sound has made the Sheffield/Leeds duo begin to make a name for themselves as one of the loudest two-piece bands ever.
Wet Nuns tour dates
London-based three-piece, formed in 2009. The band are influenced by the likes of Fall of Troy, Foals, Refused, At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta, with a sound that is ambitious and pop, heavy and epic, comfortingly familiar and something completely unique all at the same time.
Arcane Roots tour dates
Female-fronted pop punk from Buffalo, USA, consisting of band members Alex Kerns, Sheena Ozzella, and Max Gregor.
Lemuria tour dates
A five-piece from Oxford that plays indie-pop and math rock. Their early songs are full of distorted chords and interlinking guitar melodies, although their style has evolved towards more asymmetrical time signatures with complex accenting between guitar and drums, fewer guitar effects, and more complex melodies.
TTNG tour dates
Castrovalva dispense brutality and quirkiness in double measures as they twist and shred their way through a thrash-prog wonderland. Think Prince fronting DFA 1979. Oh! And don't forget your sense of humour on your way out the front door.
