In support of the release of Hello, Phantom, alternative supergroup Gold Key have announced a free release show at The House Of Vans. Uniting members of Gallows, SikTh and Nervus/Blackhole, Gold Key have spawned something totally unexpected and incomparable with similarities being cited in the sounds of bands such as Queens Of The Stone Age and Radiohead.
Tickets are amazingly still available and can be reserved on the venue’s website. Support on the night comes from “cosmic punks” and fellow Venn Records labelmates Waco.
On the new record, the House of Vans show and support band WACO, guitarist Laurent Barnard says:
The response to Hello, Phantom has blown our minds. We’ve had amazing reviews and I feel people are really starting to connect with the record. It’s only been out a week but hopefully it will just build and build.
We love House of Vans and our headline show will be an opportunity to showcase a wider range of our material. Expect a powerful set that combines atmospheric guitars with some visceral musical pieces.
It’s amazing to be working with Vans again. They’ve helped out all our other bands in the past and it’s great that they continue to create opportunities for new artists.
Waco are friends of ours and also on my label Venn Records. Even though they sound very different to Gold Key they write huge catchy punk songs and I can’t think of a better band to warm up the crowd!
The band are billed to play three shows on the run-up to the House of Vans show in the next few days. Check out the dates below.
- 5th – Hope & Ruin, Brighton (w Grave Pleasures)
