continue to spread War Eternal
announce new live dates for 2015

2014 was a busy year for Swedish extreme metal band ARCH ENEMY: New singer announced in early 2014, new album out in the summer, extensive press trip all over the world from LA to London to Berlin and Tokyo, followed by conquering the biggest summer festival stages. A US tour supported by Kreator in fall was the next step on their busy schedule, new guitar player Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore) came in and joined the massive winter tour supporting Kreator. But hard work pays off and 19 years after their formation, ARCH ENEMY are on a new level of their career – with no end in sight!

2015 started with a fun trip on the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise to Jamaica, followed by a Latin America tour. March sees them busy with shows in Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan and Thailand. European fans will see ARCH ENEMY again in late April. The band is coming back with support from US metal force UNEARTH who will present their new album “Watchers Of Rule”, and DRONE from Germany who released their self-titled fourth album in April 2014.
During the summer months, ARCH ENEMY will be headlining the Dynamo Metal Fest and play on further high profile festivals like Hellfest (France), Graspop (Belgium), With Full Force (Germany) and many more.

While other bands would finally go on holiday to take a break after more than a year on the road, ARCH ENEMY already announced the first shows for the second half of 2015. On December 19th they will join Nightwish to play the Wembley Arena in London. And there is even more news to come!

Stream brand new track ‘Young & Numb’
UK/EU tour dates announced for March and April | |
Brighton’s finest new purveyors of raucous off-kilter garage rock, Demob Happy, follow their triumphant 2014 debut single ‘Succubus’ with powerful new cut, ‘Young & Numb’. Due for release later this year via the bands own Milk Parlour Records.

Fusing their natural affinity to relentless chord-thrashing with a fondness for melodic undertone and bold dynamic shifts, ‘Young & Numb’ is less the nihilistic stoner manifesto that its namesake could allude to, and more a vicious rumination on the dazed efforts made to drag knowledge and meaning from the bedlam of youth. “It’s my frustration about the fact that no one is willing to step out of line at a time when we think our freedoms are greater than ever before, when actually our personal freedoms of expression aren’t. It’s about how no one wants to have an opinion anymore,” front-man Matt Marcantonio explains.

A headline tour through last October saw the four-piece leave the UK’s small venues broken and beaten. Upon their return, the Guardian’s Single Of The Week championed their debut single, ‘Succubus’ as “a joyride through rock’s sleazier back alleys”. Their live show is heralded as a whirlwind of energy and chaos, handsomely toeing the line between dexterity and disarray. Catch them on tour through March and April, which also marks their first venture into Europe.

Tickets are on sale here: ‘Young & Numb’ will be released later this year on the bands own label, Milk Parlour Records.

Dead Kennedys Announce June 2015 UK/EU Headline Tour

Tickets on sale Monday 16th February at 10am
from 0844 477 2000*

Legendary US punk band, Dead Kennedys, have announced a string of UK and EU headline tour dates for June 2015.

2014 saw the group play a handful of UK gigs, including a sold out night in the capital at KOKO, and a couple of festival appearances; now Dead Kennedys return to the UK and Europe in June, culminating with a show at London’s landmark venue, O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Formed in 1978, the Dead Kennedys were a pioneering force in America’s punk movement in the late 70s and early 80s. They were one of the defining hardcore punk bands of the time and have since become one of the most important. Their distinctive sound stood out and the influence of British punk could be heard in their music and their lyrics, which were often rooted in politics.

The group’s revolutionary spirit meant they were considered by some to be the most dangerous band in hardcore, even facing trial for explicit artwork in the mid-80s, but the Dead Kennedy’s legacy has become far more dangerous. They have influenced countless artists and musicians, even though they were largely ignored by the mainstream media during the height of the band’s career, releasing four studio albums until they disbanded in 1986.

Despite the absence of former frontman Jello Biafra, Dead Kennedys have triumphed since reforming in 2001. The line-up for the forthcoming live shows is; East Bay Ray (guitar), Klaus Flouride (bass), DH Peligro (drums) and Ron “Skip” Greer (vocals). 

Full tour dates are: 

Monday 15th June – Germany, Munich – Strom
Tuesday 16th June – Germany, Berlin – SO36
Wednesday 17th June – Germany, Hamburg – Knust
Friday 19th June – France, Clisson – Hellfest
Sunday 21st June – Manchester – The Ritz
Monday 22nd June – Bristol – O2 Academy
Tuesday 23rd June – Birmingham – O2 Academy2
Thursday 25th June – Glasgow – King Tuts
Friday 26th June – Liverpool – O2 Academy2
Saturday 27th June – London – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire

O2 customers can get tickets 48 hours in advance on PRIORITY
