‘Yes, It’s True’. The Polyphonic Spree return to the UK with a new album and tour dates this summer. The band who captured the imagination of thousands from their first notes at David Bowie’s Meltdown in 2002 and went on to take hearts and minds at Glastonbury and on a succession of UK tours have been away from our ears and eyes for some time but have remained a touchstone for all that is innovative, beautiful and downright different in the music scene.
Hot on the tail of their storming set on Download Festival’s Red Bull Stage last month, glam/sleaze metal-infused hard-rocking Wycombe 5 piece THE WILD LIES have released ‘Relive The Ride’ from the new EP ‘Jacks Out The Box’ free to their fans via their facebook page in celebration of the announcement of a host of new live summer tour dates.
Young Swindon quartet Colour The Atlas have released a new video, which has just premiered over on Vevo.
Bristol, UK: a city best known in the pop-culture lexicon for Banksy, Roni Size and Portishead, and therefore perhaps not the most obvious breeding ground for the musical offspring of Davey Havok’s impassioned catharsis. But, with their kinetic new album ‘With Tape And Needles’, Ashestoangels look set to put Brizzo on the musical map of the macabre, its gloom-soaked tones spiked and studded mini-anthems for the disenfranchised.
