Freedom: Pussy Riot Punk Prayer Commemoration Concert: Midas Fall + Au Palais + Skinny Girl Diet + Cat Bear Tree + CHVRCHES + Karin Park + Neurotic Mass Movement + The Voyeurist + Sheen
SHATTERJAPAN.com and POPULAR present this special event to commemorate the one year anniversary of the Pussy Riot Punk Prayer and to celebrate freedom of expression.
Four live bands headlined by Midas Fall, five band DJs headlined by Chvrches, and three speakers – with artists from Canada, Sweden and all across the UK.
**Chvrches, Karin Park, Neurotic Mass Movement, The Voyeurist and Sheen will be performing DJ sets only.**
Led by the hauntingly melancholic vocals of Elizabeth Heaton, Edinburgh-born and Manchester-based Midas Fall have sculpted a distinctive sound, combining elements of electronica and post-rock to create taut, shimmering soundscapes.

Mining an ‘80’s electro vein, Au Palais is a brother-sister duo (David and Elise) from London, though they’re originally from Toronto. Au Palais’s music is brooding and melancholy, cinematic and bold. David and Elise compositions are mini-soundtracks for your most wistful of moments.
Au Palais tour dates
A three piece, London based female band who create brash, Gothic / grunge music.
Skinny Girl Diet tour dates
Deriving their name from a kick ass cat and a cowardly bear, Cat Bear Tree are a London-based trio whose indie, melodic, sometimes poppy, sometimes punky tunes nod to indie alt acts like Sleater-Kinney, Electrelane and Warpaint.
Cat Bear Tree tour dates
CHVRCHES are Iain Cook, Martin Doherty and Lauren Mayberry - three distinct individuals bearing three distinct personalities on a consummate whole. Combining indie sensibilities and aesthetics with barbed pop hooks and and an unhealthy obsession with Prince, CHVRCHES take elements of classic electronica, hip hop and post-punk, and yet sound like none of the above. Their blend of classic and modern analogue synthesisers, bruised beats and crude vocal sampling comes to the fore in their debut single The Mother We Share, as it did in Lies, their first track that seeped onto the internet in mid-2012.
CHVRCHES tour dates
Karin Park is a Swedish, singer-songwriter. Park has always been noted for her characteristic voice, but her music has developed from a light pop to a deep, alternative electro with darker lyrics.
Karin Park tour dates
Dark 'n' twisted electro clash kids. This seminal London band plays with clichés and transforms ordinary ideas into savage beasts, never afraid to make fun of themselves and their immediate environment.
Neurotic Mass Movement tour dates
Singer Sarah Nag and guitarist Richard "Rusty" Ruston make up this dark electro pop duo from London, who have supported the iconic likes of Peaches, Grimes and The Ting Tings.
