The Strypes headline UK tour announced and new album ‘Spitting Image’

The Strypes headline UK tour announced and new album ‘Spitting Image’

The Strypes are pleased to announce their third album – ‘Spitting Image’ – due for release on June 16th on Virgin EMI. The news comes alongside the announcement of a UK headline tour in the summer.

Last week, The Strypes dropped a brand new track online, apparently out of nowhere and with no introduction. The new track, which is called ‘Oh Cruel World’, marked the first new music from the popular Irish 4 piece since their sophomore record ‘Little Victories’ was released back in 2015.

Now they announce their brand new third album – ‘Spitting Image’ – a fabulously diverse record that effortlessly transcends the bands roots in adrenalized R&B, which has been produced by Ethan Johns (Tom Jones, Paul McCartney, The Vaccines, Laura Marling) and son of the legendary Rolling Stone...

Vukovi share new music video and UK headline tour announced

Vukovi share new music video and UK headline tour announced

Following their breakthrough debut album, dubbed “one of the year’s best” by Kerrang! Magazine, and a packed-out headline tour across the UK, Vukovi have revealed a thought provoking new video for their single, ‘Weirdo’, and confirmed UK headline tour dates beginning in May, and festival appearances.

“This video is about raising awareness to the victimisation and cultural impact that bullying, and more specifically cyber bullying, has on young people in today’s digital age,” frontwoman Janine Shilstone explains.

“The idea came after chatting to numerous fans at our shows and learning about the hell they go through at school because they like “weird music” or dress differently...

Hannah Aldridge shares video for new single “No Heart Left Behind”

Hannah Aldridge shares video for new single "No Heart Left Behind"

In literature and in songwriting, the American South is where writers go to face their fears. Hannah Aldridge doesn’t just dip her pen into the well of the South, the Muscle Shoals native embodies it. With every song, she’s facing down demons of a life once lived from substance abuse to failed relationships and scars from the lashes of the bible belt.

“Gold Rush” is Hannah Aldridge’s second album, a follow up to her 2014 debut “Razor Wire.” While that album launched her career, drew the attention of music writers and sent her touring across the world, “Gold Rush” shows a more mature and introspective artist with more life experience – and music experience – under her belt.

The honesty Hannah Aldridge crafts into each track is off-set by her stubborn, maybe defiant, natur...

Trudy and the Romance announce their Spring shows for 2017

There’s a storm brewing over this year and in its eye is where you’ll find TRUDY & THE ROMANCE.

Concocting a veritable witch’s brew of lovelorn sea shanties and mutant rockabilly pop for all the doo-wop digging rockers who thought these isles would never be hip and happening again.

Their march into infamy has not been a long one. Throughout the past year each successive release has earned them new acolytes in the press and on the wireless. They were part of DIY’s class of 2017 as well as NME’s round up of acts to explode this year. Strong support has come from Radio 1, Radio X, Beats 1 and 6Music (where they were Steve Lamacq’s artist of the week) and fashion tastemakers i-D have also sung their praise...
