Paradise Lost UK tour with Lacuna Coil

Paradise Lost UK tour with Lacuna Coil

Just in case you missed it last week Paradise Lost announced they will tour the UK later this year to celebrate their 25th anniversary.  Support for the tour comes from Italian's Lacune Coil.

Nick had this to say about the forthcoming anniversary shows:

"25 years IS a long time, on the surface we may look ramshackled, but playing music for so many years has kept us young in our hearts and I truly believe that a youthful spirit is one of the greatest things you can’t buy in a pub.

WPC Summer Sizzler 2013 with Undersmile

WPC Summer Sizzler main stage

The line up and stage times are now confirmed for the When Planets Collide Summer Sizzler taking place at the Windmill in Brixton on 29th June. This year's edition will be headlined by Oxford's masters of sloth like riffs Undersmile.

Tickets are priced at just £6 (£8 on the door) and include BBQ food, so at my calculations that's 42 pence a band including food!  If you haven't yet been to one of these events then you need to make sure you get along this year.  

Sun (hopefully), awesome bands, great food, cheap...

Mammoth Mammoth November 2013 UK dates

Mammoth Mammoth European Tour

Australia's self proclaimed ‘most rock n roll, rock n roll band in the History of History’, Mammoth Mammoth have announced a European Tour for November 2013 which includes 3 UK dates.  The band who recently signed to Napalm Records and released "Volume III - Hell's Likely" will certainly appeal to fans of fuzzed out bands like Fu Manchu and Truckfighters with a mix of AC/DC and Motorhead.  It’s a sound MAMMOTH MAMMOTH call ‘Heavy-murder-fuzz.’ And its effect as ‘...the type of rock that some times kills unicorns’. Support on the tour comes from Sweden's The Quill.

Dates are as follows...
