THE CHRISTIANS – 17th Oct 2020

Renowned for an endless string of soulful yet socially aware hits …Forgotten Town, Ideal World, Born Again, Harvest for the World, Whats in a Word, Hooverville, Words, Father, The Bottle and many more The Christians enjoyed huge acclaim in the late 80s and early 90s both in the UK and Europe and often confused people with their band name (in fact just the brothers surname with absolutely no religious connotation!)

Still headed by enigmatic lead singer Garry Christian (who very much deserves the Daily Mirror’s description of him as having ‘one of the finest voices in pop) who has only gained in vocal stature (and wit) over the years!  the band are enjoying a revival currently touring successfully in the UK and Europe.

Currently embarking on a huge UK Tour playing their well known back catalogue and one or two favourites selected from newer albums.

Catch them on tour and find out why Chris Evans said ‘it was the best gig I’ve ever been to’

MEMPHIS MAY FIRE + Special Guests – 7th Dec

Memphis May Fire is a sonic confessional, confronting the brokenness so many feel, and challenging that darkness with an aggressive call toward a hard won victory.

Crossing genre-barriers and standing side-by-side with the elite of the rock world is nothing new for the unapologetically melodic and forcefully heavy band. They have steadily amassed a strong catalog while bringing a high level of audience participation and engagement to festivals, clubs, and theaters all around the globe.

Memphis May Fire are veterans of the modern Vans Warped Tour, a staple defining act in the subculture that’s been so meaningful for so many. They’ve headlined the charity-driven Take Action! Tour, following in the footsteps of a diverse group of groundbreaking groups like Jimmy Eat World, The Used, and All Time Low. They’ve co-headlined with platinum-certified screamo/pop-punk merchants Yellowcard. They’ve earned spots at major rock radio festivals like Rock on the Range and heavier leaning international events like Download, Slam Dunk and Heavy Montreal.

The unity of purpose is palpable at a Memphis May Fire show, as both the audience and band share their life experiences, their dreams and fears, through the power of transcendent music. As important as it is to see the light at the end of the tunnel, there is great strength to be gained from a sobering, stark look at what it feels like in the throes of adversity. Memphis May Fire crafts the sound of hope from struggle, delivered by a dedicated group of men who aspire to something more with their art.

Tickets on sale from 10am 2nd Oct via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania Skiddle or Gigantic.

LOW ISLAND + Special Guests – 4th Dec

Low Island are an Oxford-based electronic band featuring multi-instrumentalists/singers Carlos Posada and Jamie Jay, bassist/keyboardist Jacob Lively and drummer/percussionist Felix Higginbottom. All childhood friends, Low Island are a band literally a lifetime in the making, playing music together in various combinations since first meeting each other, before finally settling with the current lineup two years ago.

Their next single, Search Box, ‘inspired by the idea that Google has become the world’s therapist’, was released in June alongside a self-produced music video and ‘Search Bot’ on the
band’s website. The video featured a lone mouth (Posada’s) that buckled and contorted under the weight of the repeated questions in the song’s lyrics. Included in Spotify’s ‘The Indie List’, ‘Fresh Finds’ and ‘Hot New Bands’, 6music’s Tom Robinson described how the track ‘almost made me fall off my perch. We’ll have Low Island rocking the pyramid stage yet, mark my
words,’ while Radio 1’s Jack Saunders lauded its ‘post-punk lyrics’.

Support: TBA

Tickets will be on sale via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania Skiddle or Gigantic soon.

SOEUR + Special Guests – 2nd Dec

Breaking hard-rock down to its simplest, most fundamental form, SOEUR are a brutal, soulful assault on the senses. Bound together and battle-hardened by an experience & appreciation of the fringes of British rock music, Anya Pulver, Tina Maynard & James Collins have already found their incendiary live shows selling out in dive bars and clubs across their native South West. With vocal lines that tangle & intertwine, riffs so substantial they’ve got their own post code, and a beat – provided by former Maybeshewill drummer James Collins – that ties everything down with industrial power, this is a sound of colossal proportions.

Tickets on sale from 18th Sept at 10 am via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania Skiddle or Gigantic.
