Power-pop rockers Last Great Dreamers have just unveiled the video for their new single. “Primitive Man” is the third single to be taken from the band’s widely acclaimed fourth album 13th Floor Renegades which was released this spring through Ray Records. You can check out the video below.

It’s been a busy year for the band, kicking off with their first ever Spanish tour, followed by numerous gigs and festivals throughout the Spring and Summer.

More recently they’ve come to the attention of legendary West Coast powerpop and rock maven Rodney Bingenheimer, enabling them to secure a US booking agent. The band are now planning their first ever US dates for 2019.

Buckcherry & Hoobastank

Buckcherry and Hoobastank will team up for a co-headline UK tour beginning 05 February through 17 February 2019. The show will feature full headline sets from both bands playing their famous hits.

Support on this tour will be provided by Adelitas Way on their first ever UK tour.

Buckcherry will commence the recording of a new album in September with Mike Plotnikoff, who produced their last platinum album, 15, which featured the hit songs “Crazy Bitch” and “Sorry”. The album is scheduled for spring, with a first single released in January prior to the tour. The tour will mark Buckcherry’s return to the UK following their appearance at the Stone Free Festival in June and shows in Newcastle and Glasgow.

Hoobastank is a multi-platinum selling American rock band, formed in 1994 in Agoura Hills, California. They have sold more than 10 million albums worldwide over the course of their accomplished career, being best known for their singles “Crawling in the Dark”, “Running Away”, and “The Reason”. Their sixth album, Push Pull, was released in May 2018 via Napalm Records. Hoobastank’s highly anticipated return to the UK comes right off the heels of their 15th Anniversary tour of The Reason in the United States.

With tracks like “Invincible” and “Sick”, Adelitas Way have established a loyal fanbase over the last ten years. UK fans will finally have a chance to see the band and will not be disappointed!

The Pearl Harts

The Pearl Harts have released new single “Different Kinda Girl” ahead of their upcoming UK headline tour – see it below.

“Different Kinda Girl”, the new cut from The Pearl Harts, is a sharp shot of garage rock adrenaline which nods to the riot grrrl movement and 90s girl power, lyrics that pay homage to Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ and that paraphrase suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst. Combining The Pearl Harts’ trademark sound of riffing guitars, pounding drums and snarling vocals the band say “’Different Kinda Girl’ is a fun and outspoken song about stepping out and not being afraid to be different, having the confidence to stay true to yourself and beliefs even if you are being squashed down, even if you have to fight,…. asserting your personality and being proud to stand up for who you are.”

Following the release of debut album Glitter and Spit, the band attracted large audiences whilst touring across UK with the London date selling out, and they also earned a support slot with The Kills.
