Having kicked off their biggest European headline tour to date on Monday in Dublin, UK post-hardcore outfit Asking Alexandria have announced something special for their London show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton this Saturday 19th January, bringing a full pyro production to their show for the first time.

Guitarist Ben Bruce commented: “Headlining Brixton has been a dream of ours since before we even learned how to wank! It’s such a fucking honour and we couldn’t be more excited. We have the biggest and best stage show of our careers planned for this show and definitely want this occasion to be just as important and memorable to our fans as it is for us. We shall see you all very soon. From all of us in AA, we thank you and we fucking love you. The AA Family has once again proven their dedication and made us all so proud.”

With an incredible line up boasting support from While She Sleeps, Motionless In White and Betraying The Martyrs and less than 100 tickets left for what is set to be one of the band’s most historic shows to date, fans are advised to purchase quickly to avoid disappointment.
Asking Alexandria have also confirmed their appearance at this year’s Download Festival, which takes place at Donington Park June 14 – 16th.

Rival Sons announce UK tour

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 16th January 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

After a successful 2012, including being voted  Planet Rock’s New Band of the Year, scooping up Breakthrough Artist at last year’s Classic Rock awards, and releasing a top 20 album, Rival Sons return to the UK this April, including dates at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and Cardiff Solus. Tickets are on sale now priced at £12.50 (Cardiff) and £14 (London) (subject to booking fee) from this location or from TicketMaster.

Rival Sons are a raucous, maximum-blues-infused, rock ‘n’ roll band, who explode with the rhythm and thrill of some of the greatest rock acts of all time. From their 2011 album Pressure & Time to last year’s breakthrough Head Down the strength of their live performances has gained the band major attention everywhere. Recent accolades include, a stint opening up for Guns ‘n’ Roses last year, plus legends like Judas Priest, AC/DC and Alice Cooper, and playing the likes of Download, Rock Am Ring, Sonisphere, T in the Park, to name a few.

Rival Sons’ intense work agenda (with an aim to release an album a year), plus their gruelling live schedule, have won the band a reputation for hard-graft. In the studio, the band commits themselves to creating an experience that closely matches the attitude and excitement of their live performance. Right off a four week stint on the road, Rival Sons wrote, recorded, and mixed the album in just twenty days; ensuring a rawness for both the listener and the band.

In October 2012, Rival Sons finished up their UK leg of the sold out “Head Down” tour with a fantastic show at the Electric Ballroom, introduced on stage by legendary presenter Bob Harris, and with Jimmy Page in the audience.
