Check out the amazing mix that the duo have just dropped over at the fantastic Wonderland at this link
Brighton based duo Sea Bed are not your typical electronic act. With an instrument in one hand and an array of tech reserved for the other, Lizzie Massey and Jim Corbin are more than ready to deliver their unique blend of Indie inspired House music. Their debut EP Rosso has all the infectious rhythms and cyclical phrases to inspire a true sense of excitement and euphoria in the most cynical of listeners.Massey (vocals/ bass) and Corbin (guitar/ programming) owe their humble beginnings to a vibrant indie-pop scene in Brighton and found their feet when sharing the stage together as part of home-grown four piece Tiny Dragons. Deciding to take an all-together more electronic route for their musicaloutput, the two artists branched out and formed what is now Sea Bed in 2014.

Despite clinging to their organic influences and using the instruments they grew up playing, Sea Bed steadily introduced a dietary supplement of Berghain influenced Techno, UK Bass and House to aid their craft.

With a penchant for the deeper, distorted and more melodic, Sea Bed blend sampling, song writing and a broad sonic palette to create their vision of a dark dance floor led utopia. As a band, a duo, and as serious musicians, Sea Bed never stays comfortable for long. Their intent is to meld elements of their past and present into music of the future.

Take track 2 ‘Caves’, for instance. The track is built around a nagging electronic earworm of a riff that is reinforced by the jumping and skipping pop-funk bass of Massey. A strong-4-to-the-floor beat adds to the track’s defining features and a stripped back section following the verses precedes the catchy phrase taking centre stage to incur its full infectious effect. This could quite easily be a Disclosure track that the fellow UK duo would be proud of. On penultimate track ‘Haunted’, Corbin’s artistry sets the back drop as Massey’s hypnotically harmonised vocals soar and reverberate over a swirling bass and typically trebly high-hat and snare cracks sound. Hints of electronic producer Baths creeps into the mix.

For hybrid indie-house act Sea Bed the power is very much in their hands. With the continued emergence of duos – namely The XX, Disclosure etc. – their blend of typical band instruments and laptops, drum pads and cabling, finds them with many avenues of opportunity to take their contagious style of music wherever they see fit.

Are you ready for a laugh!

After all it’s Mid-Summer, so not a time to be too serious and Beverley Folk Festival certainly knows how to enjoy itself.

This year to kick off the fun, Patrick Monahan makes a welcome return to Beverley with his brand new, energetically witty and charming family show! Expect plenty of playful audience interaction from this loveable Irish/Iranian Teessider!

Early in 2014 he took part in the hit family entertainment series ‘Splash!’ and appeared on the brand new series of ‘Celebrity Squares’ . He was also seen on ‘Fake Reaction’ and on ‘Man Up’ and was a regular 2014 guest on ‘Not The One Show’

His 2013 TV appearances include ‘Comedy Annual’, ‘Daybreak’, ‘Loose Women’, ‘The Wright Stuff’, host of ‘Jongleurs Live!’ and ‘12 Again’.  In 2012 he took part in Let’s Dance for Sports Relief on BBC, won Best Newcomer at the Loaded LAFTA Awards and Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award for his hit show ‘Hug Me I Feel Good’ and in 2011, he was the winner of the ITV1 series ‘Show Me The Funny’ which led to the release of his debut DVD ‘Patrick Monahan Live’

‘A definite must see’  Edinburgh Festival’s Magazine;   ‘Monahan is a supremely engaging performer, adored by his audiences and capable of some terrific comedy’. The Scotsman

To carry on with the fun on the Saturday, the long time favourites of festivals and clubs around the country, and overseas, the New Rope String Band, return to the festival for the last time before they retire in the Autumn.

Once seen, never forgotten. Combining superb musicianship with side-splitting comic genius, the New Rope String Band are truly unique entertainers. Elements of circus, clowning, vaudeville, slapstick and sheer inspired silliness are spliced with beautiful acoustic music from various world traditions, in precision-honed yet uproarious performances that have delighted audiences from Borneo’s Sarawak rainforest to the Shetland Folk Festival. They mix up long-time favourite routines with ever-evolving new material. From musical tennis to deconstructed nursery rhymes, Python-esque absurdism to pyrotechnics and live interactive film, expect the hilariously unexpected. “They made me laugh until I cried, and played some great music. If the Queen could knight them or something, it would be a good idea.”   Tim O’Brien. “I couldn’t believe what they were doing most of the time. It defied belief, it was really great!” Bob Gibbon,Director, Orkney Folk Festival.

To join the New Rope String Band in the madness on the Saturday night will be Lucy Ward, an award winning 24 year old acoustic artist from Derby who plays guitar, ukulele and concertina as well as having a great voice. Her career has gone from strength to strength establishing herself as one of the hottest performers on the UK Folk scene, pulling a capacity audience on her Cambridge Folk Festival debut and gracing the mighty Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury 2013 and the Left Field stage at Glastonbury 2014.  She was named by MOJO as ‘Britfolk’s most vibrant and forthright new young talent’ and attracted four star reviews from The Guardian and Maverick Magazine among others.

“Lucy, is a breath taking presence on stage. Her unpretentious outlook and warmth melts the hearts of audiences. Her disarming personality, pitch perfect delivery and the maturity of her songs can reduce an audience to tears, but a Lucy Ward set will always send you away feeling uplifted.” Shrewsbury Folk Festival.

So, cheer up, there’s lots to smile about at the Beverley Folk Festival this Summer. See you there…..

As always a full programme of events and workshops for younger artists and members of the audience will ensure that all ages are fully catered for over the weekend.

Tickets available for the Weekend, Single days or Individual events – June 19th – 21st.

Social Distortion will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of their “self-titled” album, by performing the album in its entirety during the upcomingEuropean Tour in April and May this year.

Released in March 1990, Social Distortion was the iconic band’s 3rd album and the first for Epic Records.  It became their best-selling album worldwide, and the first one to enter the Billboard 200 album chart. Singles “Story Of My Life,” “Ball and Chain,” “Ring of Fire” and “Let It Be Me” all reached Top 25 Billboard single chart positions. The album is set to be re-released on limited edition color vinyl for Record Store Day in the US. More news to follow.

In regard to the forthcoming tour supporting the 25th Anniversary of the seminal album, frontman Mike Ness states: “We’re all looking forward to Europe. It’s a different time frame for us; we’re playing Groezrock for the first time, so it’s exciting to be doing something new. As I’ve said before, we’ve made Europe a priority and I feel we’ve been consistent over the last ten years on touring there more regularly than ever before. This tour is going to be extra special for us and everyone attending the shows. 2015 is the 25th Anniversary of our self-titled record, so we’re going to be playing the album in its entirety. And with Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas and my man Jonny Two Bags warming things up, it’s going to be a great run.”

Social Distortion Track listing:

“So Far Away”
“Let It Be Me”
“Story of My Life”
“Sick Boys”
“Ring of Fire”
“Ball and Chain”
“It Coulda Been Me”
“She’s a Knockout”
“A Place in My Heart”
“Drug Train”

Listen to Social Distortion on Spotify

In the 25 years since the release of Social Distortion, the band have gone on to release four more critically acclaimed and fan favorite studio albums; “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell” (1992), “White Light, White Heat, White Trash (1996)”, “Sex, Love and Rock ‘n’ Roll” (2004) and “Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes” (2011).  Social Distortion’s latest release Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes was the first album with their current label Epitaph Records and the band’s highest charting album in their career. Produced for the first time by Ness himself, the album debuted at #3 on German Album Charts and #4 in the US Billboard Chart.

Social Distortion’s upcoming European Tour will take place in April and May this year. The three-week tour will start on April 17th in Hamburg (Germany), and include both headlining shows as well as the appearances at key music festivals, like Groezrock in Belgium and Loudfest in Switzerland.

‘Playing Catch With .22′  Video + Single Out Today

WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UesQmoU4nYw

Currently on tour with Enter Shikari in the US

San Francisco’s I the Mighty is pleased to release the first taste of new music from their forthcoming full-length album, Connector, which will hit streets June 1, 2015 via Equal Vision Records. The band is kicking everything off with a catchy yet powerful new song along with an accompanying video for ‘Playing Catch With .22,’  which is available instantly via MerchNOW when the album is pre-ordered. Starting today, fans can pre-order the album by going here: http://ithemighty.merchnow.com

The video for ‘Playing Catch with .22,’ uses modern drone technology to capture unique aerial images of the band, making for a surreal and colorful video. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UesQmoU4nYw

Frontman Brent Walsh notes, “‘For ‘Playing Catch With .22,’  our Director Raul Gonzo came up with the concept of using only ‘God’s View’ for the entirety of the video. That meant the we were able to film the performance shots lying down, and we got to hire a drone guy. Who doesn’t want a drone guy?! The end result is a unique feel that we felt vibed with the song quite well.”

The forthcoming full-length will include 12 new songs of I the Mighty’s best work to date. Without a particular goal in mind, and effortlessly achieving a sound that combines pop, rock and heavy music into a flawless musical amalgamation, the four piece have brought an incredible new album that highlights their formidable skills as musicians and songwriters. Connector features soaring vocals with meaningful lyrics, and intricate guitar parts that are eloquently written and recorded with precision.

Walsh elaborates on the band’s process, “We never sat down and had the talk about, ‘What type of record do we want to make? What direction do we want to take this band?’ To be honest, we never have. We simply wrote a bunch of songs, picked our favorites and made the record we wanted to make.”

I the Mighty released their debut album Satori in 2013, and has grown immensely as a musical unit since then, creating new material that will undoubtedly propel them to the next level. Connector was produced by Mike Green (Paramore, Pierce The Veil, All Time Low) in Los Angeles,  where the band split studio time between Green’s studio and the Madden Brothers Studio. The band also brought Max Bemis of Say Anything into the studio to record guest vocals on their song, “Friends.”

Walsh continues, “It’s a different record from Satori in that it’s not a break up record. I took a ‘story-telling’ approach to song writing, which is where I originally found my lyrical voice. That’s not to say there isn’t some typical ITM angst or politically charged venting. I hope fans of our band see this record the way we see it…as a progression and maturing of our band, as well as a bit of a call back to the sound we started with.”

I the Mighty, who have toured with Say Anything, Eisley, Coheed & Cambria, letlive., Balance & Composure and Architects UK, has joined Enter Shikari, Stray From The Path, Hundredth, and  A Lot Like Birds this week for a two month US tour that will hit both coasts.
