And So I Watch You From Afar Announce New Album ‘Heirs’ & UK/EU Tour with Mylets

New album ‘Heirs’ due out 4th May 2015 via Sargent House

And So I Watch You From Afar 31-date tour starting
28th April 2015 (dates below)

Previous praise for ASIWYFA:

“…an utterly immersive tour de force and a series of thrills as transient as the breeze” Rock Sound

“…monstrously heavy [and] full of tense, nervous energy” – Q

“You can almost see the sweat seep out of the speakers before their maelstrom of dexterity gives way to great waves of squalled sound” Drowned in Sound

“Whatever your definition of delirious happiness, All Hail Bright Futures is full of that same sense of rapturous joy in abundance” – The Line Of Best Fit

Today Northern Irish math rockers And So I Watch You From Afar (ASIWYFA) have announced their return with their new forthcoming album ‘Heirs’. This will be the eclectic quartet’s fourth full length album following on from their widely acclaimed album ‘All Hail Bright Futures’.

ASIWYFA have applied to their forthcoming new album ‘Heirs’ the same rigorous work ethic that has seen them touring nearly non-stop all over the world in recent years. ‘Heirs’ is both the band’s most painstakingly created album as well as its most personal and meaningful: a central theme about the inheritance of ideas, in that we’re all ‘Heirs’ to other peoples’ passion which in turn inspires ourselves. Many new lives, new imperatives and invigorated perspectives helped shape the 10-song album borne of over 30 tracks written in prolific isolation over 6 months in the band’s Belfast, Northern Ireland home. It’s a work of deep focus and adventurous abandon that reaches to the heart of artistic expression.

In support of their forthcoming album, ASIWYFA have also announced a 31-date tour (dates below) to start this spring with label partners Mylets, covering the UK, and much of Europe. ASIWYFA have a relentless thirst for touring and over the past 5-years they have tallied up almost 500 shows worldwide – including less common tour stops such as China, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. This tour will see the band play 4 UK shows in Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol and London before heading to Europe.

‘Heirs’ is due out on 4th May 2015 and will be released via Sargent House (home to the likes of Russian Circles, Boris, Chelsea Wolfe, and Tera Melos).

Comments frontman Harry George Johns, “This song is about trying to not make those calls, those mistakes we all make, often after alcohol, mostly after heartache – but I’ve made these mistakes and I’m telling you now, don’t not drink and dial, just don’t drink!”.

Brawlers will also be main support to Real Friends on their upcoming UK tour :

“Hands down the best new live band in Britain, Brawlers are making the kind of impact on the gig circuit Gallows had back in 2007- you come away from their shows elated and ready to punch someone in the face just to prove how alive you are. Fantastic pop tunes and a grimy punk edge.”   – Drowned in Sound

HORSE PARTY

 

“Atmospheric guitars and tumbling rhythms explode into magnificent, angry colours… somewhere between the post-rock soundscapes of Thought Forms and the harmonious melodies of Yuck.” God Is In The TV 

 “Like Stevie Nicks singing with PJ Harvey… Ellie Langley’s vocals drip with attitude and menace”  Gigslutz

 “One of the most exciting new bands around” – Songwriting Magazine

“A sweet/sour mix of prescient, razor wit and winning tunefulness… Highly recommended.”

The Digital Fix 

Horse Party are singing guitarists Ellie Langley and Seymour Quigley, and drummer Shannon Hope.  Having crossed paths at Seymour’s Washing Machine club nights in their hometown of Bury St Edmunds, the trio bonded over a shared desire to spend the rest of their lives making the kind of records they’d want to listen to.  A string of self-released singles caught the attention of UK indie Integrity Records, who released their debut LP ‘Cover Your Eyes’ in May 2014 to critical acclaim and airplay from 6music’s Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq, Shell Zenner at Absolute Radio and XFM’s John Kennedy.

In July 2014 they played Latitude Festival’s Lake Stage at the invitation of Radio One’s Huw Stephens and BBC Suffolk Introducing. Horse Party’s new single, ‘Out Of Sight/Receiver’, will be released Monday 23rd February 2015 on limited edition 7” black vinyl as a co-release by R*E*P*E*A*T Records and the band’s own Pure Deadly imprint.

SYMMETRY

Relentless!

It’s the word that best describes Symmetry, an alternative pop rock band based out of Los Angeles.

“Genre bending sound that is simultaneously fresh & powerful, yet absolutely radio-friendly” Jay Rawley – Louder Than War

This innovative band consists of Michael Campbell (vocals), Jared Hara (guitar), Will Weiner (bass) and Max D’Anda (drums). Symmetry formed in early 2013. Later that year, they released their debut full-length album, Frozen In Time, produced by James Paul Wisner (Dashboard Confessional, Paramore, Underoath).

Guitarisrt Jared lost his eyesight at 12 before ever picking up his first guitar, but now is living proof that tragedy can reveal hidden potential.

(“Sometimes in darkness, we find ourselves” says Jared).

Their debut album was widely supported in the US. A breathtaking debut was comleted when they were awarded the ‘Best rock Song’ award by Hollywood Music in Media.

Symmetry gained worldwide fans on tour with Room 94 in the U.K. on the Live Nation No Strings Attached Tour last year and will be heading back to the UK, Ireland and Poland as the main support act for Room 94 on the Live Nation promoted Dirty Dancing Tour. You can see them on the following dates –
