Praise for Forever Cult:

“Heavy, imposing songwriting reminiscent of The Jesus Lizard and the more intense moments of Mudhoney’s early career” – Clash Magazine (Track of the Day)

“Inhabiting the sludgier end of the grunge spectrum with frontman Kieran working
between a mellow slacker drawl up to Taz-esque levels of vocal turmoil.” – Drowned In Sound

”…a clattering, visceral affair that shares an urgency with Leeds-based peers Eagulls and perhaps even an appreciation of noise similar to Hookworms” – Artrocker

”…Intensely gritty attitude… no nonsense grunge” – Punktastic

“…a festering and ferocious trip – the Guardian
If Demob Happy invite you into a cottage for a “quiet” relaxed countryside weekend, you might as well be shaking hands with the grim reaper.” – DIY
“A filthy opening statement.” – NME 8/10
“‘Young & Numb’ is a kick in the spine and a certain breath of fresh air.” – Best Fit
“Tongue firmly in cheek, but the music is deadly serious!” – Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1
“The gutter, the gulley, THE GIRTH!” –  Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1
Stream second track Fizz from their forthcoming debut EP Young & Numb due Record Store Day 2015 via their own label Milk Parlour Records & SO Recordings

Headline tour dates remaining at Londons Lexington on April 23rd & Brightons The Haunt on April 24th | |

Keeping their tongues-in-cheek, Demob Happy follow their gruesome new music video with ‘Fizz’, the hard-hitting second track from their forthcoming debut EP Young & Numb, due for Record Store Day 2015, April 18th.

Flowing fast on a wired, discontented rampage, ‘Fizz’ outlines the narcotic ebb and flow of tensions between the sexes. “It’s about as fast as we could make it, frontman Matt Marcantonio recalls. “The whole thing’s an in-band joke about becoming a Tao sex magician, apart from its only 2 minutes long which is kind of ironic in its own way.

Stream ‘Fizz’ on SoundCloud:

Following a manic and inspired blur of several days and nights locked away in a makeshift studio out in the desolate Welsh countryside, the Young & Numb EP sees the quartet emerge from a haze of hypnotic jam sessions with four electric tracks laced with feedback, fuzz and bold dynamic shifts. Co-produced with long-time friend of the band Christoph Skirl, the Young & Numb EP was then taken to Pink Floyd’s engineer, Andy Jackson, for mastering duties.Currently blazing a trail across the UK on their second headline tour, they’ve left the UK’s small venues smouldering. With a live show always handsomely toeing the line between dexterity and disarray, the band will play London’s Lexington on April 23rdfollowed by a homecoming close at Brighton’s The Haunt on April 24th before they play The Great Escape festival weekend through May 14th-16th.

Remaining headline tour dates –

“Rumbling bass, snare-heavy drums and spectral echoes tone the verses, with Gardner playing a shaman extolling the sanctity he finds in the clouds. Whimsical and mind-expanding, Gardner’s brand of psych-pop has stepped out of the cabinet and into the light.” – DIY

“Find Yourself sees Gardner in a positively swooning, giddy air… vocals hazily wafting in the incensed breeze betwixt his baroque-tinged guitar leads.” – The Line of Best Fit

“It’s hard to hear Jacco Gardner and not think of the crossroads of rock and psychedelia, when the Beatles got a little more trippy, Syd was still with Pink Floyd, and pop nuggets were still the focus, not the 7-20+ minute epics that would proliferate as the decade wore on. His newest effort Hypnophobia returns to those early explorations, dropping expansive and far-out pop gems” – Noisey

“Dutch wunderkind creates creepily lovely paean to late-60s baroque pop.” – The Guardian

Dutch multi-instrumentalist Jacco Gardner is set to a cast a majestic and hypnotic psychedelic spell by sharing the title and driving track, Hypnophobia, from his brilliant second album, released 4th May on Full Time Hobby.

“I came up with the title “Hypnophobia” while falling asleep and part of my brain just didn’t turn off,” explains Gardner. “I often have trouble letting go of reality, even though I prefer the world in my dreams… Hypnophobia comes from a place where fears, darkness and creativity collide, like a slightly scary lucid dream. Fearing a loss of control definitely plays a big part of it.”

There’s an argument that Gardner is the hardest working man in rock.

Just back from a recent US tour which took in performances at SXSW, his five piece band will set on a full European jaunt through April and May, they will then return to America in June – barely drawing breath for three solid months. Along with the new single today, Gardner has also announced an Autumn UK tour including a performance at his spiritual home Liverpool to play the International Festival Of Psychedelia.

“Touring all over the world has completely changed me,” he says. “I’ve seen places I’d never seen before or didn’t even know existed. I think Hypnophobia has got some of its adventurous character from all those amazing experiences.”

Along with the new single today, Gardner has also announced an Autumn UK tour including performances at End Of The Road festival and Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia.

April 24 – London, UK @ 100 Club
Sep 4 – End of the Road Festival, UK
Sep 15 – Brighton, UK @ Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar
Sep 16 – Bristol, UK @ The Louisiana

LACEY stream ‘The Last Time’


Debut album ‘Under The Brightest Lights’ out 20th April


With the first single from their debut album, ‘Tonight’, already garnering some impressive TV and radio play, Notts rock band Lacey are now streaming album track ’The Last Time’ ahead of their full-length ‘Under The Brightest Lights’ being released on 20th April. Initially intended as the opener of the album, it’s a positive track full of ambition and driven hooks, setting out the band’s intentions with poise and an undeniable knack for melody. With influences including Taking Back Sunday, Kids In Glass Houses and Jimmy Eat World, Lacey are continuing a tradition of compelling songwriting you can’t help but sing along to.

Lacey formed in 2010 and have released several EPs in their time as a band, most recently ‘Outlaws’ in September 2013 which was particularly well received. They have toured with US-Pop Punks Patent Pending, Welsh wonders The Blackout and Jaret Reddick’s (Bowling for Soup) People on Vacation (with whom they’ll be appearing again in Feb/March), as well as playing Hit the Deck Festival for two years running. In 2013, they were also finalists in the Red Bull Studios Download Festival competition after being selected from over 100 bands.

30th May – Rescue Rooms, Nottingham (Album release show) – 



Graham Turner (Lead Vocals & Bass), Josh Lewin (Guitar & Vocals), Pete Maksymiw (Guitar), Dave Pearson (Drums & Vocals)

“It builds up from layers of chiming guitars and ruffled-feather percussion, evolving gradually into a Brit-pop splashed piece of shuffly dream-pop.” – The Line of Best Fit

“California hit-makers in waiting” – Clash

“They come from Los Angeles, produced by Raymond Richards, and sing a bit like James Mercer of The Shins” – Les Inrocks

“The breezy pop-tinged brilliance of their LA peers Local Natives, and the downplayed dramatics of US stalwarts The National” –Notion

“A near-perfect tune for those late night drives no matter where you are in the world.” – The 405

Los Angeles quartet Northern American have announced their debut album, Modern Phenomena, which will arrive May 18 on Heist Or Hit Records – pre-order here – and premiered the video for the single, “Elysian”, via Les Inrocks.  The follow up to the band’s 2013 EP Happiness Hungover, was recorded at Red Rockets Glare studio in Santa Monica with producer Raymond Richards (Local Natives) and mastered by Mark Chalecki (Local Natives/Avi Buffalo/Islands).   There is a natural energy that flows from Northern American, capturing the awe-inspiring beauty of the Los Angeles landscape through which all these lives intertwine.

Nate Paul (guitar/vocals) and Shane Alch (keys) met in high school, immediately finding a kinship in their common love of music.  The two moved to Los Angeles, joining forces with Augusto Vega (bass) and Bruno Calenda (drums), setting up a studio in Chinatown, writing and rehearsing nearly daily ever since.  Whilst most artists have their own roles to play within their band, Northern American is a fully collaborative project with all band members contributing lyrics, melody, and rhythm to the process.  The four began performing regularly and built a loyal local following in the City of Angels, with tastemaker blog, Buzzbands.LA stating, “There’s a new rock quartet in town whose sophisticated pop may include your breezy summer melody.”

Happiness Hungover caught the ears of Heist Or Hit Records in the UK, who released the single “Wander” in 2014, which garnered airplay on BBC6 Music and Amazing Radio, and led CLASH magazine to call the band, “California hit-makers in waiting.  Sun kissed songcraft designed to soundtrack a late night drive down the Sunset Strip.”

With Modern Phenomena, Northern American have found an organic, shimmering sound, that glows like the lights of Los Angeles, looking down upon the city from the San Bernardino Mountains.  The band will introduce their album to audiences at this year’s SXSW Music Conference, kicking off a Spring of soon to be announced Los Angeles dates, with North American and UK/European tour dates in the works for this summer.

Modern Phenomena track listing:

01.  Feel Like Whatever
02.  So Natural
03.  Modern Phenomena
04.  Somewhere Out There
05.  Blue
06.  Days Between
07.  You Remind Me
