Kreator + Arch Enemy tour supports announced…

September 9, 2014


Shining and Marty Friedman will be returning to the UK in December, performing a special set together as part of the Kreator Official and Arch Enemy tour!

The artists worked together on ‘Meat Hook’ from Marty’s new album ‘Inferno’, out now on Prosthetic Records. Expect Shining to play key tracks from their Indie Recordings albums ‘BlackJazz’ and ‘One One One’ and they will also collaborate as Marty’s band for his own songs, as well as a couple of collaborative treats…



After the sad news of Daevid Allen’s illness, the band will perform two shows in Manchester & London… Tickets on sale now from TicketWeb UK, Ticketline and other outlets…


Gong 2014 are….

Dave Sturt bass/vox, Ian East winds, Fabio Golfetti guitar/vox, Kavus Torabi guits/vox and a ‘mystery drummer’

Come and join the party to celebrate the Oneness of Gongness! and generate some healing energies for our dearest Dingo Virgin!

And a message to YOU from the divided alien…..

GONG has never stopped shape shifting in it’s 46 years of touring – from its origins in the Parisian revolutions of ’68, through the Virgin years to it’s newest incarnation. Unorthodox and unpredictable it continues to defy show-biz gravity, most forms of logic, every fad and fashion, and pretty much anything else you care to conjure up.

Weeeellll, it is GONG!

Now another twist in the story emerges – I am recouping from surgery which is going to render me off planet for the rest of this year….

HOWEVER – the GONG collective CONTINUES!

This most shiny and new incarnation has been developing for 5 years. It began to take shape with master bassist Dave Sturt and the virtuosic hornsman Ian East. Added to that, Brazillian guitarist Fabio Golfetti, who has been in many forms of Gong for 15 years and the whirlwind that is Kavus Torabi (ex Cardiacs) on guitar/vocals and a new mystery drummer and you have a GONG that will blow your sox off!

Promoting the new album – I SEE YOU – as well as some classic material from the last 45 years – this line up, in my ‘umble opinion, is quite simply, one of the best there has been.

Come and celebrate the oneness of Gongness!

Dynamic, unexpected, whimsical, brilliant chops and huge fun. Your company is most respectfully requested – it just won’t be the same without you.

Of course by supporting the Gong band in my absence you will also be giving energy to my swift recovery.

My hugest thanks to all of you who have already swamped me with loving vibes and positive energies.

See you on the other side of my little setback!

With all my full hearted love,

God Seed Alt-Fest UK Exclusive

July 11, 2014


The debut, ‘I Begin’, from King and Gaahl’s new project God Seed was released by Indie Recordings in 2012, and they have since played a number of standout festival performances – perhaps most notably, their packed Temple Stage headline set at Hellfest 2013.

Currently in the process of writing and recording the follow up to ‘I Begin’, God Seed have turned down a number of festival offers in favour of a summer of creation over performance – however, the lure of the UK audience has proved too tempting, and they will play an exclusive show at Alt-Fest 2014.

Maybeshewill ‘Fair Youth’ Tour

June 30, 2014


UK-based instrumental rockers Maybeshewill are set to release their brand new fourth studio album ‘Fair Youth’ on the 25th August 2014, and the stunning artwork for the release can be viewed above. They are also pleased to reveal even more tour dates for later in the year, this time for Europe. Full dates for the ‘Fair Youth’ tour can be viewed below, and you can also view a brand new teaser for the album here:


The band will embark on Summer festival dates before the arrival of the new album, and a full list of Summer dates can be found below:

11th/12th July – 2000 Trees Festival, Gloucestershire
18th July – Truck Festival, Oxfordshire
19th July – New Noise Festival, Karlsruhe
20th July – Welcome to the Village Festival, Netherlands
26th July – Tramlines Festival, Sheffield
16th August – Pukkelpop, Belgium
29th August – ArcTanGent Festival, Bristol (2nd Stage headline)

Over the past couple of years since the release of their last album ‘I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone’, Maybeshewill have been making a name for themselves as one of the most exciting and hard-working bands around. The band finished off 2013 by going out on their most extensive European tour yet with The Dillinger Escape Plan & Three Trapped Tigers, and since then have been hard at work on their fourth album.
