THERAPY? + Special Guests – 15th Nov

We’re pleased to welcome back the legendary THERAPY? to The Sugarmill on 15thNov.

Therapy? came to attention in the early 1990s rise of alternative rock, but have endured for two decades since; critic Johnny Loftus writes: “after a ten-plus year career that has seen them outlast competitors and outwit industry attempts at categorization… Therapy are still head bangers with their thinking caps screwed on tight.”

Their 15th studio album ‘Cleave’ will be available to buy or stream from all major platforms in the autumn.

Tickets available from 9am Friday 15th June via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania or Gigantic.

With their debut album ‘Columbia’ dropping on September 21st, The Blinders have announced they will follow the release with an extensive UK headline tour, stopping at The Sugarmill on 22ndOct.

‘Columbia’ is bracingly thrilling debut which firmly places The Blinders at the vanguard of a new generation of politically engaged British guitar bands. Loosely based around the concept of Columbia as “an alternate world informed by reality”, on the album The Blinders display a ferocious intelligence, as influenced by history, literature and art as they are by Britain’s current political and economic woes. As well as ‘L’Etat C’Est Moi’ – “a delirious indie stomper with a heart of gold” CLASH– the album contains previous single ‘Gotta Get Though’, which spent five weeks at No.1 at Amazing Radio.

BLOXX + Vistas + Special Guests – 9th Nov

“Inevitably onto big things” DIY

“Bloxx are brilliant” DORK

“Crisp, infectious, totally contagious indie pop songs” Clash

“Bloxx might be your new favourite band” The Line Of Best Fit

2017 was a terrific year for the red-hot Uxbridge based Bloxx –  who arrived ferociously at the tail-end of the summer, with boundless energy and a fresh new charge of grunge-pop that the world was very ready for. Debut offerings ‘Your Boyfriend’ and the Radio 1 playlisted ‘You’ were swiftly followed up with an Annie Mac championed second double A-Side ‘Coke’ / ‘Curtains’ whilst the band toured relentlessly – supporting Sundara Karma, The Wombats, INHEAVEN up and down the country.  They last appeared at The Sugarmill supporting Pale Waves back in March this year.

They’re armed with more music, more touring and even more determination to conquer the world. Bloxx are so alarmingly infectious; and with the boundless energy to match, there is no stopping them as they continue to ascend.

DYLAN CARTLIDGE + Release + Special Guests – 20th July

We’re very pleased to welcome DYLAN CARTLIDGE back to The Sugarmill for his first headline show at the venue.

22-year-old Dylan is a multi-talented singer, rapper and instrumentalist independently writing music that sounds more like it was created on the east side of Atlanta rather than in a small town near Middlesbrough.
Dylan grew up in Stoke but at fourteen, he moved to Redcar – a small, predominantly white working class town known only for its mothballed Steel Works and race course. With nothing going on there, Dylan sought solace in making music. Dylan is already being championed by Annie Mac & Huw Stevens on Radio 1 and Matt Wilkinson and Julie Adenuga at Beats 1 and was described by the NME as “Like Miguel meets the Black Keys”

Support from RELEASE + Special Guests

Tickets on sale via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania or Gigantic.

GAZ COOMBES (Solo) + Piney Gir – 22nd June

The legendary GAZ COOMBES returns to The Sugarmill on 22ndJune.
For nearly two decades with Supergrass, Coombes came to embody the oddball end of British indie and Britpop. But it is through his solo work that he has found himself. With his 2015 album Matador, he presented a new musical identity: wide-screen, emotional, cinematic and full of artistic surprises. It earned him a Mercury Prize nomination.“With MatadorI almostgot it right…” he says.

With his upcoming album World’s Strongest Man, Coombes brings that solo self into dazzling definition. This is an album more outgoing than its predecessor – with a greater variety of moods than we’ve heard from him before.

Writing and recording World’s Strongest Man, Coombes has finally felt a bit of that musical euphoria he first sensed at fourteen, listening to Abbey Roador Pet Soundsin his bedroom. It comes from music that is “Full of love. Experimental. Uncertain but confident. It believed in itself, but it wasn’t scared of being vulnerable.”

World’s Strongest Man is released on 4thMay 2018.

Tickets go on sale Weds 25th April at 9am via  The Sugarmill  Music Mania or Gigantic.
