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.”

Tune-Yards’ magnum opus will arrive on January 19 in the form of new album I can feel you creep into my private life. Thematically, the 12 new songs tackle race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on.

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.
