Time for another roundup of a few of the bands heading your way over the coming weeks and months.
After announcing a show at Koko, London on November 12th (which may have to be postponed due to the venue closing its doors for emergency structural repairs), Powerwolf have announced a handful more UK dates in January of next year. We believe this could be the band’s first UK tour and we’re mega-excited especially as there is a Glasgow date! Of course, our EiC has finally had a chance to see them live having traipsed over to Sweden this summer where they played Sabaton Open Air, but they’ll be well worth catching a second time.
Support is from Amaranthe and Kissin’ Dynamite.

Bringing their “Sunset Strip” show to the UK and Ireland for the first time, Steel Panther have announced a teeny tiny handful of dates for February 2019. Here’s hoping this is just a test with a larger run to follow, where the band play a huge set of their own material along with a bunch of classic 80’s covers. Off-colour humour, sexist jokes, comments about the singer’s advancing age and the bassist enjoying bum sex almost certainly included.
To quote the band themselves “If you’re a person who’s depressed and always bummed out and prefer it to rain, go to a fuckin’ Morrissey show”.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, 28th September.
