Skindred

Never ones to rest for long, Skindred are pleased to announce that they will be heading out on an extensive 25 date tour this Winter with tickets for the tour going on sale this coming Friday 31st August at 10am. Skindred drummer Arya Goggin said:

Whenever we announce a UK tour we get posts from fans saying why are you not playing here, so we thought in acknowledgement of this we would try and play everywhere. Hopefully we will be able to add some Irish shows to the calendar too just to complete the run. Playing the UK is special to us and  it’s not just about playing in the six or seven biggest Cities, it is about getting out there and playing some of the smaller towns which are often starved of shows and often these make for some of the best shows we have played.

Kings of Unity + Phosphenes + The Frontiers

Here’s a show taking bands from all corners of the west of Scotland: Lanarkshire-based alternative rockers Kings of Unity will be headlining Glasgow’s Classic Grand on the 17th of November 2018. Drawing on influences such as All Time Low, We The Kings, Bring Me The Horizon, Panic! At The Disco, support acts come in the form of Phosphenes and The Frontiers.

Phosphenes are an alternative/indie rock band from Glasgow with their debut single released earlier this year, entitled “Delusions”. With a couple of years under their belt, The Frontiers are an alternative rock band hailing from Ayrshire taking cues from bands such as Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks and The Verve and are constantly working on their own original material.

Seven albums into a career that spans four decades with album number eight already in the can, new wave of British heavy metal legends Diamond Head will be embarking on a European Tour this October – November 2018.  Support for a number of the UK dates comes from Killit and also sees Diamond Head opening for The Dead Daisies in Birmingham.
