You may be no strangers to local act Fallen Mafia – they’ve been around a little while and have done many great shows with us over the years.
Well. They’ve debut album ‘Awaken’ due out. To celebrate, they’ve released a video clip for ‘Breathe’ which you can see below.
‘Breathe’ was filmed at the Stonedeaf festival. There they shared the stage with bands like Skid Row, Anvil, Wolfbane and The Quireboys. With literally just 9 bands, it was great to see them represented.
Yorkshire grunge punk pop 4-piece Hands Off Gretel unveil new storming single ‘Kiss Me Girl’ ahead of a September/October UK headline run, of shows swiftly followed with a support tour with the VirginMarys in November (all dates below). In songwriter and front-woman Lauren Tate, there’s a force of nature driving the band forwards, on and off stage (Lauren also does all the videos, merch and artwork) that won’t stop until Hands Off Gretel hit the top.
Lauren says, ‘We have been off the radar for a few months, but we have a lot of new songs under our belt now and we are just revving the engine ready to go full throttle. Kiss Me Girl is gives you a flavour of what’s to come! You are going to be hearing a lot more from us over the next few months!’
We are delighted to welcome Hands off Gretel to Newcastle as part of their October tour.Fronted by scream-queen Lauren Tate, the South Yorkshire four-piece bring their mix of garage rock, grunge and pop-rock to the Globe on October 26th. “Energy, chaos, nihilism and debauchery abound, a trip with Hands Off Gretel will leave you spent. A beautifully polished ballet of chaos, costume and drama presenting lyrics that echoes the angst and vulnerability of growing up in 21st century Britain.” – Northern Exposure Joining the band we have two local supports. PussyWillowFurryVenus – who bring their interesting alt-rock over from Sunderland. Fallen Mafia – hard rock up from Durham.
