    Plus Special Guests

    ANTI-FLAG
    Anti-Flag have been spreading their message of unity to the masses for two decades, and celebrated their 20th anniversary last year.

    From humble beginnings in the Steel Town, Anti-Flag has worked hard to use music as a force for positive change. They are advocates for worker and human rights, environmentalism, animal rights, healthcare, conscientious objectors, prison reform and freedom for political prisoners, equality and peace. They have worked with countless organizations. Groups as diverse as PETA, the African Well Fund, and Amnesty International, (among many others) have always been welcome to make their voices heard through the power of Anti-Flag’s live shows.

    As much as Pittsburgh has defined them, the band take their music and message to the world at large. They’ve toured extensively in Europe, Russia, Scandinavia, UK, Australia, Southeast Asia, Mexico, and South America (in addition to the USA and Canada, of course).

    They were the only band to play two sets each day at the Leeds and Reading Festivals in England (rocking the main stage and the BBC Lock Up Radio Stage for a total of four sets in 35 hours). They’ve headlined Rhein Kultur, the biggest free festival in Germany, taking their message to a crowd of 50,000, and at Woodstock Poland a record-breaking crowd of 350,000+ people.

    As Chris #2 says, “This is an extension of what our vision of punk rock is, was, and will always be.”

    Anti-Flag return with a new album and it is sure to cement their place as the kings of political punk.

    INVISIBLE FOXX (Jeremy Jay)
    Jeremy Jay is an American singer songwriter who has five critically acclaimed albums out on K Records. His album Spash was considered Pavement meets Evol-era Sonic Youth played by Siouxsie Sioux.” Whilst Dream Diary was compared to Belle And Sebastien.

    Currently, Jeremy Jay has a new LP recorded with his new band Invisible Foxx. The album is set to be released via Domino Publishing and Myster Section (A new indie label based in Kennington)

    We’ve been fortunate to have a sneak preview and we believe his work, which nods to Echo and The Bunnymen, Sonic Youth, and Joy Division without aping any of them, is his best to date. We are very excited about the possibilities that could evolve from this album. The single launch is here at The Old Blue Last with Hot Vestry, a kick ass band from Macclesfield.

    HOT VESTRY
    Hot Vestry are a band from Macclesfield who play under the elusive genre spilling sound of Bleichpop. Having recently released their new EP ‘A Scene In Between’ on Tim Burgess’ label O Genesis, the release has been said to ‘Further cement the understated brilliance of the four piece’. (www.radsound.co.uk)

    They have been confirmed to play Liverpool Sound City, Kendal Calling, and Festival Number 6 so far in the summer of 2015, and will open for Django Django on 2 dates of their upcoming UK tour.

    Hot Vestry have previously toured with Mercury Prize winning act Young Fathers, and have opened for New Order, The Charlatans, Johnny Marr, Public Service Broadcasting, The Pop Group & more.

    SEAZOO
    Seazoo are a Welsh bedroom-pop group which formed in April 2013 and for a while consisted of two humans and a charity shop teddy bear. Think Gorky’s, SFA, Yo La Tengo and Pavement. All underpinned with the home-recording ethic of Granddaddy. After playing with Gulp, Crocodiles and bagging a slot at Cardiff’s Swn Festival; Seazoo now consist of five proper humans. The teddy often stays at home, jaded by his short experience in the industry. He was shit anyway.

    In March 2014 the band played a live session for Mark Radcliffe’s BBC 6 Music Show and announced their debut EP ‘CAR DEBORAH’ which will be released via Label Fandango on 1st June, supported by a free entry launch show at London’s Old Blue Last on Fri 12th June. Like a train. To the face.

    All The People
    Plus Special Guests

    ALL THE PEOPLE
    South London’s All The People are singer Curtis Dennie and brothers Simon and Ashley Arnold. Simon and Ash cut their teeth in punk bands before graduating to become drum & bass producers and artists The Burbs for Hospital Records and sometime DJ’s on the Radio 1/1xtra drum & bass show. A chance encounter brought them together with singer Curtis 2 years ago when writing and performing as a trio began in earnest.

    While debut single ‘The Hills’ is pared back to raw and compelling dancefloor territory, this is a song, a lament if you will , which resonates beyond the club. The sheer heart in Curtis’s understated soulful tones channels a certain vulnerability while keeping the grit and the groove firmly intact.

    It’s a sound that has soaked up their urban surroundings, dripping with everything from R’n’B and 2-step garage to 90′s soul and alternative electronic music. Curtis’s intuitive yet emotive vocal style fits this landscape perfectly and gives the sensitive lyric writing the delivery it deserves. All The People are the sound of a new quiet storm.

    Denzel Curry
    Plus Special Guests

    DENZEL CURRY
    Denzel Curry exists at the intersection of Internet culture and the real world that helped to birth “cloud rap,” Clams Casino, Raider Klan, and A$AP Mob. With the exception of A$AP Rocky, few of the denizens of this aesthetic universe have managed to transcend their status as “Internet music.”

    Denzel Curry—along with his Raider Klan cohort Yung Simmie—seems the most likely since Rocky to transcend the online stew of Memphis revivalists and Tumblr enthusiasts. His most recent project, Nostalgia 64, may have already done just that. While Raider Klan, in particular, gained a reputation for Memphis revivalism, Curry’s recent work shows both originality and an increasing focus on honing his talents. His best work has both an aggressive physicality and an increasingly dexterous narrative flair. And although his rise is in its nascent paces, it’s clear that he’s moving past the phase of reciting clichés that consumes his competition. —David Drake

    The Death Of Pop have created their own sub-genre called ‘janglegaze’. Lovers of old school indie cruisings can therefore expect a twanging soundscape which shuffles between Slowdive and St Christopher, while the phased folk vocals on ‘Tell Me My Name’ can only be described as being bloody hecking gorgeous.

    Wild Cat Strike will be releasing a new EP Produced by Mike Lord (Wytches, Tigercub, Nick Cave, The Cure, British Sea Power and Florence and the Machine) in 2015. The new EP ‘I Want to Be The White That Sleeps Inside Your Bones’ takes a different direction from their previous release, ‘Attentive Blood.’ ‘IWTBTWTSIYB’ consists of 3 epic pieces totalling 25 minutes. The songs build with grand introduction, before the weathered vocals of lead singer Danny Byrom, progress from whispered lament to howled declaration of his intimately consuming lyrics.

    Having last toured the UK in December alongside long­time PT favourites Gnarwolves, state­side alternative indie five­piece Prawn will be heading back to Europe alongside sad rockers Hindsights and emo outfit Brightr.

    Prawn released their latest offering ‘Kingfisher‘ last year to great critical acclaim. Hindsights unveiled their excellent debut LP earlier this year, with Brightr celebrating his self­titled EP.“Prawn have been quietly tossing pebbles into the pond that is the recent Emo Revival, creating subtle ripples here and there, but Kingfisher is no pebble. Rather, Kingfisher is the boulder shooting out waves in every direction” ­ Property Of Zack

    “Prawn have shaped themselves into a band who offer more than lyrics, but counseling. And Kingfisher is catharsis created not through grit, but melody.” ­ Absolute Punk

    “’Settled’ is an oddly beautiful piece of work ­ rhythmically complex yet melodically simple, Prawn continue to bewilder, perplex and entertain.” ­ clashmusic.com

    EVANS THE DEATH
    Evans the Death return with their anxiously-awaited second album Expect Delays. Recorded again with producer Rory Atwell, the album bristles with an underlying tension and veers from rip-roaring noise to quiet contemplation, underpinned by Katherine Whitaker’s extraordinary voice.
    Still barely out of their teens, there’s a tremendous sense across Expect Delays of a band coming into their own, honing a plethora of influences to make a sound that is uniquely them. Each song on the album has a different feel to it: some of them are melodic and pretty; some of them heavy and dissonant; and some of them are, to quote guitarist Dan Moss, “a bit strange”.
    While retaining the post-punk and 90s alt-rock inspired elements that peppered their debut, the music is more expressive, heavier and more experimental, and the lyrics more nuanced, the sense of despair leavened by sharp wordplay and humour.
    The unsettling undercurrent of melancholy and hopelessness that pervades the record has its roots in the last three years, spent eking out an existence on the poverty line in Cameron’s Britain, leaving them with a succession of minimum-wage jobs and unemployment benefits interviews. As guitarist Dan Moss relates, the album is about “being in London and feeling hopeless and a bit lost. Not having any money, relationships falling apart, things just not connecting or going anywhere and getting absolutely wasted all the time.”
    More ambitious and focused than their previous record, whilst sacrificing none of their spontaneity and vitality, Expect Delays is a supremely inventive and intelligently crafted album from a band who have suffered for their art, and used that experience to inform and nourish their work. Expect no more delays, Evans the Death have arrived.
