RAMPAGING THROUGH THE AUTUMN IN A CITY NEAR YOU

 

-          UK Headline Tour
w/ support from Freeze The Atlantic & Speaking In Italics (5th – 14th Oct 14)
- UK Tour supporting The Subways (25th – 31st Oct 14)
- Just added to Nightmare Festival in Camden (1st Nov)

 

Burton-On-Trent punk rock n’ roll four-piece Max Raptor crack the long tail of adoration for their 2013 debut album Mother’s Ruin (out now on Naim Edge Records) and their storming set at Sonisphere 2014 this summer, with a live schedule to get the pit circling.

 

Making a name for themselves as one of the most underrated young British rock groups around, Max Raptor’s live performance was given 10/10 reviews across the board at this year’s Sonisphere, also being given the “Craziest Moshpit of Sonisphere 2014 Award” by rock blog Sinister Resistance.

 

Heralded by Kerrang! as making “songs you can fight, f*ck or dance to” and supported by BBC Radio 1 Zane Lowe & rock guru Daniel P Carter, Max Raptor’s anthemic candour and riotous live performance have established them as a cornerstone of the underground Midlands alternative rock scene.

 

Max Raptor are stoked to be embarking on a headline tour with support from fellow British alt-rock group, Alcopop! Records own Freeze The Atlantic, described by NME as “an impressive demonstration of grit and grace 7/10”.

 

The Raptor boys have also been invited by spritely garage rock band The Subways to accompany them on five nights across the UK, whilst promoting their new single My Heart Is Pumping To A Brand New Beat.

 

Thereafter, Raptor return to London for the Camden High St’s Nightmare Festival, brought to you by the makers of ever-successful Camden Rocks, in full Halloween fancy dress! Visit them here on Facebook for more details: www.facebook.com/NightmareCamden

Matt Andersen

September-October 2014 UK & Ireland Tour

 

www.stubbyfingers.ca  

 

A powerhouse performer with a giant soul-filled voice and commanding stage presence, Canadian guitarist and singer-songwriter Matt Andersen has built a formidable following the old fashioned way – touring worldwide and letting the converted audiences and Andersen devotees spread his reputation through word of mouth. With widespread acclaim for his new album Weightless, a 2013 European Blues Award, and winning Best Solo Performer at the Memphis Blues Challenge, the entire world is now discovering Matt Andersen.

 

On Weightless, the New Brunswick native shifts his formidable talents as a blues performer to his song-craft, where Andersen comes out of the gate swinging with ‘I Lost My Way’, one of two co-writes with Joel Plaskett. Then he channels Van Morrison on ‘My Last Day’, before delivering ‘So Easy’, a gorgeous country ballad co-written with David Myles., while ‘Alberta Gold’., so-written with Dave Gunning, Andersen tells the all-too-common tale of Maritimers heading west to work on the oil sands. Tom Wilson (Blackie and the Rodeo Kings) helps craft a rockabilly ode to a battered rust-belt town, ‘City of Dreams’, while Andersen’s Wolfville, N.S. neighbour Ryan Hupman lends a hand on three songs, including the title track, ‘Between the Lines’ and the spiritual ‘What Will You Leave’.

 

With 150 shows already this year, including a sold out solo performance at Toronto’s prestigious Massey Hall, after hearing the instant classic material on Weightless, it’s hard to imagine any fan of Matt Andersen – old or new – leaving unsatisfied.

Praise for Weightless

 

“a rich mixture of blues and Americana supplemented by excellent songwriting.” The Blues Magazine (9/10)

 

“If you haven’t yet heard Matt Andersen, you really must, and you should start here. Not only weightless, the Canadian’s latest feels effortless too, that shoulder-rub of a voice putting the icing on some staggeringly good modern Americana.” Classic Rock (8/10)

 

“With his distinctive smoky soulful voice and mastery of the guitar Andersen is made for the blues… However with this album Andersen is making a compelling case for the quality of his offering in a much wider range of musical styles.” Maverick (4/5)

 

Weightless is a great album from a great musician.” Blues In Britain  “soulful … a powerful, commanding vocalist …” R2 (4/5)

BABYMETAL BRING THEIR WORLD TOUR 2014
TO THE UK

BABYMETAL will return to the UK in November for their only remaining European show of 2014. The London stop of their World Tour 2014 – Who’s Ready For Round 2? – will be highly anticipated, after fans were treated to their first UK performance at Sonisphere Festival last month, with a select few also managing to get tickets to their sold out headline show at London’s Kentish Town Forum two days later.

 

A truly unique phenomenon, BABYMETAL broke out of their native Japan earlier this year as their video for single ‘Gimme Chocolate!!’ went viral worldwide, their inimitable blend of heavy metal and catchy pop demanding the attention of music fans everywhere.

 

The announcement comes off the back of a huge summer, which as well as seeing major festival appearances around Europe, also saw the band support pop superstar Lady Gaga on her recent US tour.

BABYMETAL – WORLD TOUR 2014 – WHO’S READY FOR ROUND 2
November 8th 2014 London Brixton O2 Academy
Tickets go on sale 10am Wednesday 20th August.

VIP tickets also available www.kililive.com
