The Vaccines

Thursday April 12th 2018 ● O2 Academy Glasgow

The Vaccines are an English indie rock band, formed in West London in 2010 by Justin Hayward-Young (lead vocals, guitar), Freddie Cowan (lead guitar, vocals), Árni Árnason (bass, vocals) and Pete Robertson (drums, vocals). After Robertson's departure in 2016, keyboardist Tim Lanham and drummer Yoann Intonti were promoted from touring musicians to official band members. The band have released three studio albums. What Did You Expect from the Vaccines? (2011), Come of Age (2012) (which charted at #1 in the UK upon its release) and English Graffiti (2015) which charted at #2. They have sold over 1 million records worldwide. They have toured extensively, playing with and opening up for acts such as The Rolling Stones, Arcade Fire, The Stone Roses, Arctic Monkeys, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Muse amongst others. The band's debut album was the best-selling debut album of 2011 in the United Kingdom, drawing comparisons to The Ramones and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Ezra Furman

Monday May 28th 2018 ● O2 ABC Glasgow

Transangelic Exodus is a new landmark for the American singer-songwriter: “Not a concept record, but almost a novel, or a cluster of stories on a theme, a combination of fiction and a half-true memoir,” according to its author. “A personal companion for a paranoid road trip. A queer outlaw saga.” The music is as much of an intense, dramatic event, full of brilliant hooks, with an equally evolved approach to recorded sound to match Furman’s narrative vision. In honour of this shift, his backing band has been newly christened: The Boy-Friends are dead, long live The Visions. In other words, the man who embodies the title of his last album ‘Perpetual Motion People’ is still on the move… Or, in the vernacular of the new album, on the run. “The narrative thread,” Furman declares, “is I’m in love with an angel, and a government is after us, and we have to leave home because angels are illegal, as is harbouring angels. The term ‘transangelic’ refers to the fact people become angels because they grow wings. The have an operation, and they’re transformed. And it causes panic because some people think it’s contagious, or it should just be outlawed.” “The album still works without the back story, though,” he vouches. “What’s essential is the mood - paranoid, authoritarian, the way certain people are stigmatised. It’s a theme in American life right now, and other so-called democracies.”

Yo La Tengo

Sunday April 29th 2018 ● SWG3 Glasgow

Yo La Tengo is one of the most beloved and respected bands in America. For nearly thirty years, Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew have enjoyed success entirely on their own terms – playing the world’s best concert halls, museums, and dives, dominating critics’ lists, doing a Simpsons theme, playing the Velvet Underground in “I Shot Andy Warhol,” sharing stages with some of the most important musicians of our time, and even creating a holiday tradition onto themselves with their yearly series of Hanukkah shows at Hoboken, New Jersey’s legendary club Maxwells, from which they’ve donated hundreds of thousands to charity.

16Moulettes plus guests Sneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
In early 2015, lead singer and songwriter Hannah Miller read a New Scientist article that described how the discovery of a microscopic creature had redefined the perimeters of life as we know it.
The ‘Halicephalobus Mephisto’ Nematode Worm has none of the requirements of other known life forms - able to survive deep underground, without oxygen or sunlight.
The seed was sown for ‘Preternatural’ - an eclectic 11-track opus for the Natural World, and the strange and beautiful creatures in it.

“It made me contemplate how much we still don't know about the planet we live on, and to consider that
moving space between what we do know, and what we can never know; at the frontier of science and
discovery.” says Miller. “The animal kingdom holds such a wealth of beauty, creativity, humour, ingenuity
and artistry. I wanted to celebrate it, to underline its fragility, to hold up a mirror and compare our own
species to others.”

The band, like the creatures they describe, have always been an evolving phenomenon, and each
album has seen a significant leap into new unchartered territory, their unusual music vision
prompting comparisons as disparate as «…the Kronos quartet, Roxy Music, Frank Zappa, Kate
Bush...echoes of early Pink Floyd, Bowie and Radiohead.. Kraftwerk and Björk» (R2 Magazine/Reuters.)

“We identify with bands who present their own kind of eclecticism,” says Oliver Austin. “From Zappa, and Gentle Giant to current bands like Field Music, John Grant, Snarky Puppy, Laura Mvula, My Brightest Diamond, tUnE-yArDs and Tortoise; these were all references for the record.”

It is a beautifully orchestrated ecosystem, experimental in parts but still accessible, fusing rich vocal harmonies, persuasive melodies, big riffs, detailed arrangements and sharp songcraft to make a genre-defying album, which explores the moving space between electronic and acoustic; DIY and big production.

The arrival of newest member Raevennan Husbandes catalysed a rockier mood, her stark and fluid electric guitar playing complementing Miller’s virtuosic cello to forge a muscular, unique sound-blend. Husbandes’ & Miller’s luminous voices deliver characteristic multi-layered harmonies locked in with a towering, thunderous rhythm section (Mortimore / Austin), the band’s synergy and tightness is a testament to their relentless touring schedule; their musical range described by Prog Magazine as “huge, complex and compelling. One of the most thrillingly nimble musical ensembles the UK has produced in decades.»

Incurably ambitious, this is a band that has always put an adventurous approach to Art at the heart of their craft. The front cover best demonstrates Moulettes for what it is: an eclectic, progressive hybrid, a bizarre and bombastic monster.

December 2017 is the concluding chapter of the two-year ‘Preternatural’ tour, and the last chance to see the «breathtaking» live show that has taken the band across Europe from Poland to Malta, and across Canada from Nova Scotia to Victoria Island.

Book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets on sale Friday 10am.

3Highly SuspectThe Garage
The Garage, Glasgow
Grammy nominated US rockers, Highly Suspect have announced details of their first live plans for 2018. Having blown away the crowd supporting rock heavyweights Kings of Leon and Pixies at BST Hyde Park this July & following the success of their last UK tour which concluded with a raucous sold out show at Camden’s KOKO, the Brooklyn natives have revealed details of their biggest UK tour yet next January & February, including their largest London headline show to date at The Forum.

Highly Suspect recently revealed the video for ‘Little One’, which you can watch here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKcIedFBiVU). ‘Little One’ is the second single from the band’s critically acclaimed sophomore album, ‘The Boy Who Died Wolf’, which debuted at #1 on the Current Alternative Album and #2 Rock Album on the Billboard Charts in the US last November. The moving, euphoric LP showcases a stronger, livelier and more mature sound than their debut, displaying influences from the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Jack White and In Utero-era Nirvana. To date, the album has spent over 30 weeks on the Billboard charts.

‘Little One’ is the follow-up to the band’s breakout hit ‘My Name Is Human’ which spent 9 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Active Rock Chart, reached Top 15 at Alternative Radio and was nominated for a Grammy in the ‘Best Rock Song’ category among legends like David Bowie, Metallica and Radiohead - the band’s third Grammy nomination in 2 years following two nominations for their debut album ‘Mister Asylum’ in 2016.
