The Vintage Caravan confirm UK dates

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on 10th December 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Iceland’s answer to the likes of Black Sabbath and Led Zeplin, The Vintage Caravan, are finally making their way across the oceans to introduce the UK to their own brand of riffs. And bunny-licking. The three Icelandic youngsters, who are aged 19, 19 and 20, will be touring as support to Grand Magus, in March next year. Their debut album Voyage will be released via Nuclear Blast in January 2014. Bassist Alex comments:

We are so incredibly excited to finally be touring the UK with a great band like Grand Magus, meeting British people, drinking British ales. This is going to be one hell of a trip!

There has been a huge resurgence of ‘retro rock’ over the last few years, but these boys have explored a path that no one else has found yet. Youth is on their side, they have drawn musical influences from the greats of our generation and added to them their acid laced, trippy lyrics, relatable to the silly side that’s hopefully still in all of us. If not, these guys will certainly help you find it!

Tour dates are as follow:

March 12th – Manchester, Sound Control www.seetickets.com
March 13th – Dublin, Voodoo Lounge www.ticketmaster.ie
March 15th – Wolverhampton, Slade Rooms – www.tickets.com
March 16th – London, The Underworld – www.seetickets.com

Mourning Beloveth unveil their first ever music video

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 27th November 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Ahead of their upcoming show in Dublin this weekend on Saturday (30th November), Mourning Beloveth have released their first ever music video to accompany their track Theories of Old Bones. The video can be viewed below.

The video – which lasts fifteen minutes – is a black and white cinematic opus, directed and filmed by Lukasz Jaszak in Poland. Vocalist Darren Moore, talks through the video concepts:

It wasn’t going to be an easy task to shoot a video for one of our songs, in the main due to their length. The story was already there in the lyrics of the song it was a matter of putting visuals to it. The lyrics ask questions on our existence, are we just here to pass time or to use it, is it a mere heavy existence we go through each day counting the days to our death or is there a purpose to all this…or do we have a choice? I read somewhere about Christians in the old days who carried a pouch made of newborn lambskin around their necks to carry the nails for their coffin upon their death and it struck a chord of how fatalistic some people are.

The video itself is perhaps a journey through a half dream, a moment in the pit of existence where life has drifted away to some far off point inside leaving the body to automatic ruin. It is about time slowly gnawing at the entrails and the shadow of a silent death forever lurking through the ether.

The track, Theories of Old Bones, is taken from Mourning Beloveth’s latest piece of musicianship Formless. The album – which clocks in at one hour and twenty five minutes – was recorded in October 2012 at Foel Studio, Wales and was released in February 2013, via Grau Records, to high critical acclaim. The album is available to purchase, along with other Mourning Beloveth merchandise here.

This coming Saturday, 30th November, Mourning Beloveth will play their last gig of the year, in Dublin. Support bands for the show are Dread Sovereign and Nomadic Rituals. Bassist Brendan Roche comments:

Having spent the 10 months since the release of Formless dragging its heart and soul, blood and guts around the stages of Europe, we are delighted that we shall put 2013 to rest with the first Dublin show we have played in nearly 2 years. It’s a headline show, so expect 90+ minutes of the least worst of MB, something from every era, but with a heavy Formless influence. Just like us…
