Having traversed the globe with their headline performances while racking up hundreds of festival appearances including Glastonbury, Eurosonic and Womad, Molotov Jukebox are a band of true universal appeal and released their second album, Tropical Gypsy in April, following on from the success of 2014’s debut Carnival Flower.

DRAPER + MAN WITHOUT COUNTRY + Macious + Lost Russle – 15th Sept

**Due to a change in recording schedule, this show has been re-scheduled to 15th Sept. Original tickets still valid**


Electronic music fans listen up, the incredible talents of DRAPER and MAN WITHOUT COUNTRY will be gracing The Sugarmill.

DRAPER is a French-born British producer.  He is best known for his remixes for many mainstream artists and his unique melodic electronic style. James’ desire to produce electronic music started at the age of 16 when he got some software to make music from his parents.

At the age of 18 James joined producer based website Indaba Music. Here he developed his name, winning several remix competitions for well-known artists. In late 2010, he released his first original music “The Introduction EP”. A month after its release front man of Bring Me The Horizon Oliver Sykes found Draper’s music through a Canadian music blog. Sykes then helped the young producer get heard and endorsed Draper’s second self-titled EP through his clothing label Drop Dead.

After the release of his second EP, Draper acquired many high-profile remixes, including Twin Atlantic, Passion Pit and Ellie Goulding. His remix for Goulding appeared on her Tesco exclusive edition of her album Halcyon. After graduating from Oxford Brookes University with a 1st class honours degree in Media Technology, Draper was invited to DJ for Rita Ora at the Capital Summertime Ball 2012. He was subsequently invited back to support Rita on her debut headline arena tour. Maintaining his own stream of commercial releases, Draper continues to release through Canadian electronic label Monstercat.

Originally formed in 2007 as a duo alongside co-founder Tomas Greenhalf, MAN WITHOUT COUNTRY released two studio albums via Cooperative Music. This allowed the band to tour all over Europe and the US, often supporting the likes of M83, Alt-J, Warpaint and many others.

James has also collaborated with platinum-selling Norwegian electronic music veterans Röyksopp. Their track ‘Sordid Affair’, featuring James’ hypnotic lead vocals was the first single taken from their 2014 studio album ‘The Inevitable End’, which debuted at number one in the iTunes electronic music chart.

Tickets go on-sale at 10am Mon 29th Jan via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania or Gigantic.

CONAN + MONOLORD + Rise To Thunder + Of Legions – 17th May

CONAN and MONOLORD are heading out for a co-headline tour, stopping off at The Sugarmill on 17th May.

Liverpool doom metal outfit CONAN are known for their heavily distorted and downtuned sound. It has been described as “caveman battle doom.”

Hailing from Sweden, MONOLORD are a band both encompassing and

transcending genre; a vortex of heavy rock density that consumes all others. Their thunderous, tuneful heft has built a rabid international fanbase in short order since their 2014 debut. But Rust, the band’s third full length, truly exemplifies why some refer to them as the Nirvana of doom.

Tickets go on-sale at 10am Weds 17th Jan via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania or Gigantic.


Let’s kick off the Easter Bank Holiday weekend with a good old fashioned ALL-NIGHTER!

11pm – 6am

EVIL SCARECROW + Ten Foot Wizard – 25th Oct

EVIL SCARECROW are coming to The Sugarmill on 25th October 2018.

Evil Scarecrow are the finest parody metal band from Nottingham to have written a song about a robot… probably.

They have gigged relentlessly around the UK for a number of years, captivating and sometimes rather surprising audiences from venues as small as the local pub, as legendary as Nottingham Rock City, as mammoth as the main stage at Bloodstock Festival and as exclusive as a boat sailing down the Thames on the way to the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. Everywhere they play they win new fans. Their passion and enthusiasm ensures they always connect with their audience, who in turn spread the word far and wide.

“If you havent seen Evil Scarecrow yet then it feels unfair to ruin the surprise. An affable blend of Pythonesque absurdity, artfully drawn from an evident love of metal, they have the crowd in the palm of their collective claw from Sixty-Six minutes past Six.”
Metal Hammer

“Praise be, then, for Evil Scarecrow…Novelty bands don’t last long on stage, everyone’s tired of the joke by the third song in. Evil Scarecrow break the mould by being damned competent musicians as well as piss funny.”
The Rock City Review

Tickets go on-sale at 10am Friday 15th Dec via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania or Gigantic.

FEROCIOUS DOG + Headsticks + Nick Parker – 5th April

FEROCIOUS DOG are coming to The Sugarmill on 5th April.

Ferocious Dog are a full-on six-piece band that encompass folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations. The combination of instruments creates a palette of sound that offers infinite variations: going in hard to get the audience up and moving, or slipping into melodic passages and dub-like fusions.

“Ferocious Dog are the new noise on the block – and are surprising everyone with their rapid ascent. There is no way they’re following any hipster templates – fronted by a big burly man with a mohican who sings impassioned political songs of broken Britain whilst his band seethes like a punky Levellers – they are the music business’s worst nightmare – a great band who are going to make it without anyone’s permission”. (John Robb, Louder Than War, Glastonbury, 5th July 2016).

Ferocious Dogs 3rd studio album, The Red Album, is released on November 10th 2017 and is already receiving rave reviews. The Enemy Within tour will feature tunes from this album as well as old favourites from previous releases.

Tickets go on sale 10am Friday 27th Oct via The Sugarmill  Music Mania or Gigantic.
