FEED THEM TO THE FOREST Announce ‘Can’t Forget’ EP Out 7th April 2018 & Share New Single ‘Lie With The Dogs’ Out Now


York-based band Feed Them To The Forest are delighted to announce their debut EP ‘Can’t Forget’ will be released on 7th April 2018. To celebrate the news the band are streaming a brand-new single ‘Lie With The Dogs’ produced and mastered by a dream team combo of Dave Boothroyd at Reel Recording Studio (Deaf Havana / Blink 182) and Alan Douches at West West Side Music (The Wonder Years, Alkaline Trio, Every Time I Die).



Influenced by the emotionally charged sound of the late 90’s Long Island punk rock scene, the band bring the genre up to date with a drilled-in focus on hooks, harmonies and weaving dual vocal interplay. ‘Can’t Forget’ is the band’s first substantial release since singles ‘Black Canary’ and ‘Six Seasons and a Movie’ both released in 2016 and intends to be somewhat of a mission statement for the York band.


Commenting on the EP, Elliot explains: “We wanted to go for broke with this EP. It’s our first ‘proper’ release, so we decided to bring in the big guns with Dave and Alan, who had between them worked with so many of our favourite bands. It paid off and our jaws practically hit the floor when we had our first listen back. It was everything we hoped for and more”. 


Having already shared stages with the likes of Apologies, I Have None, Ducking Punches, Lacey, Amongst Thieves, Autumn Ruin and more, the York-based band continue their momentum with a string of live shows in the coming months, with details of a record release party also promised.


23/04 – York, Fulford Arms (with Apologies, I Have None & The Bennies)

29/04 – Huddersfield (with Ducking Punches)

11/05 – Salisbury, Winchester Gate


‘Lie With The Dogs’ is out now and available on all good streaming platforms. Feed Them To The Forest’s debut EP ‘Can’t Forget’ will be released on 7th April 2018 on CD/Digital. 



Frank Turner reveals the first single from his new album Be More Kind today. Blackout is available through Xtra Mile Recordings/Polydor Records and, says Turner, “is new territory for me, musically – a song you could even play in a club, it’s about how we might collectively respond to social dislocation and collapse…”  The accompanying video was directed by Michael Baldwin and shot on the George Lucas stage at the famous Elstree Studios, the same studio complex where key scenes from numerous legendary films including Star Wars and the Indiana Jones trilogies have been shot over its 90 year history.

Be More Kind represents a thematic and sonic line in the sand for the 36-year-old. “I wanted to try and get out of my comfort zone and do something different,” says Turner.
After the stripped-down, live-sounding previous album Positive Songs…, Turner wanted to try a new approach for the record. With this in mind he recruited producers Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block, formerly of psychedelic-rock Texans White Denim, and Florence And The Machine and Halsey collaborator Charlie Hugall and the idea of recording a more rock-led album with tints of electronic-pop took shape. Be More Kind was made over a period of seven months, giving Turner the opportunity to turn songs on their head, try different versions and shake up the dynamics within his band.

Be More Kind was inspired by a Clive James poem called Leçons Des Ténèbres: “I should have been more kind. It is my fate. To find this out, but find it out too late.” “It devastated me the first time I read it,” he says. “A lot of older, wiser people tend to say things like that, that the things that come out in the wash at the end of a human life are the way you treated the people around you. In the modern world, that’s a lesson that all of us, myself included could do to learn.”

Turner recently announced the Be More Kind World Tour which will begin in April, with its first leg playing to over 200,000 people across the UK, the USA, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, taking them through to Christmas. The first batch of announcements covers 120 dates.

LEAD PRESS SHOT low res.jpg

Faux have just revealed the brand new video for single, Body Heat. The video goes back to the 80’s, and sees the band perform live and try their hand at a dance routine in a club, in their hometown of Southampton.  The video can be seen here.


Led by frontman Lee Male’s soaring vocals accompanied by jangly guitars, it is an upbeat anthem and will no doubt go down a storm live. Body Heat has already received great radio support, receiving its first plays on BBC Music Introducing Solent and Kerrang! Radio. It also peaked at number 34 in the iTunes Rock Chart. Body Heat can be downloaded here, and streamed here.

The self-proclaimed dirty pop 4-piece wrapped a mini UK headline tour in January. They kicked things off at London’s Old Blue Last, working their way around Birmingham, their hometown Southampton and then finished things up at the Frog And Fiddle in Cheltenham. Faux were joined by Cheltenham three-piece, Polary as support.


2017 saw Faux cut their teeth on the live circuit. They supported punk-rockers Counterfeit. on the UK leg of their tour. They played several different venues up and down the UK, including a packed out show at London’s Underworld. Faux also played Teddy Rocks festival in Dorset, amongst bands such as Twin Atlantic and VANT, as well as releasing their self-titled EP into the world, via Speaking Tongues. It can be streamed here.

Sydney five piece, Endless Heights announce their sophomore album, Vicious Pleasure out February 16th 2018 via Cooking Vinyl Australia.

Pre-order Vicious Pleasure HERE


“To me this record is about a new chapter in my life. Where a lot of our music in the past was putting blame on others (rightly so), this record is about how I’ve taken a step back and taken a huge look in the mirror.” Explains vocalist, Joel Martorana. He adds, “I have used people, or stayed in relationships that I know have been damaging (but felt safe in), or situations where I could hold onto some kind of pleasure, convenience or control. The record delves into these themes across a whole range of different relationships; myself, with my father, with love, lust and my own spirituality. A lot of the album alludes to giving in to immediate satisfaction rather than long term peace or wisdom – i.e. survival via indulging in guilty pleasures.”
The Vicious Pleasure cover was painted by the watercolour artist Tina Maria Elena, who specialises in erotic art. The album was recorded at Jungle Studios in their hometown of Sydney, along with producer Lachlan Mitchell (The Jezabels, The Vines, Motor Ace) with Sam Bassall (Ocean Grove, Justice For The Damned) handling mixing and mastering. Vocalist Joel Martorana talks about the recording process, “We recorded Vicious Pleasure with Lachlan Mitchell and loved the experimentation behind the whole song-writing and recording process. The five of us agreed that we didn’t want to write or record a record the same way we had done before and it was Lachy’s discography which inspired us to work with him as a producer.  We worked with him in pre-production and tracked the record live over 12 days at Jungle Studios – a process we hadn’t been through before. We were completely out of our comfort zone and loved it.  The whole creative process felt strangely organic, and we loved the diversity he brought to our sphere, challenging us in a way we hadn’t previously experienced.”


Come A Little Closer is the brand new single following Pray I Fade, You Coward and Drain, which gained full rotation on triple j. “Come A Little Closer is a song about the power of love amongst a field of insecurities, disappointments and let downs.  How a romantic relationship can land somewhere so confusing. This song is a dance between the pure feelings and yearning you can have for someone, amidst the minefield of fears you may have about that person and/or yourself. It’s that ‘stuck’ feeling you can have in a relationship where you feel ‘this is so beautiful’, but ‘this is not going to last’. The scariest thing is that I don’t know where this song lands; are these feelings just a part of life, or do I actually regret some of my relationships? It amazes me how something so powerful can become so twisted, and can shift to be more of a coping mechanism rather than a relationship. Come A Little Closer humbles me in this way; whilst it both reminds me to enjoy the ‘moment’, it makes me want to become wiser in the future with who I fall in love with, and how I treat people.” Says Joel Martorana

PREP | Shares video for ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ & announces London headline

PREP Press Shot Low Res-00 (1).jpg

PREP have aired the new video for ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’, the first single to arrive from their forthcoming EP ‘Cold Fire’, due out in April 2018. Directed by Tuixen Benet (also behind the choreography for Tame Impala’s ‘The Less I Know The Better’ clip), ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ is the first new music from PREP since the hotly-tipped Londoners’ debut EP ‘Futures’, released in 2016 alongside 4 Hype Machine hits, an AlunaGeorge remix and radio plays across Radio, 1Xtra and Beats 1, with over 7 million streams online. PREP will support the release of ‘Cold Fire’ with a headline date at London’s Oslo on May 5, 2018 – tickets on sale here on March 16 at 10am.
Appositely shot in the perma-sun of Los Angeles’ Korea Town, Benet’s clip for ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ – intersecting with the Asian-inspired elements of PREP’s previous visuals – traces a young Korean dancer moving through the neighbourhood’s rooftops, parking lots and neon-lit streets. Informed in part by Spike Jonze’s classic video for Daft Punk’s Da Funk, the surreal, tender clip aligns the man’s gradual transformation into a Birdman with ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’s upbeat rumination on anxiety and ambition in a West Coast city.

The ‘Cold Fire’ EP captures PREP making good on the buzz surrounding ‘Futures’, with an impressive string of collaborators, including Kaytranada associates Pomo (who’s production work featured on Anderson .Paak’s ‘Malibu’) and fast-rising, Kitsuné-signed Portland singer Reva De Vito. The EP’s taut, immersive title track also features a co-vocal from Korean megastar DEAN, a driving force behind PREP’s own hothoused success in Asia, where gigs are more-often-than-not the scene of hundreds of people, phones aloft, singing every word of the ‘Futures’ EP.

PREP came about as a placeholder alias for 4 artists with an eye-watering list of credits under their belts. Co-writer and keyboard player Llywelyn Ap Myrddin – a classical & opera composer with a predilection for electronica – began working up instrumentals with House music producer / drummer Guillaume Jambel, who – under the GIOM moniker – has headlined Fabric, collaborated with Defected Records and is touring with George Fitzgerald. Llywelyn was completely thrown by the response to some of these tracks from Grammy nominee Dan Radclyffe, noted for his work on recordings by Drake and AlunaGeorge. “I played him this instrumental, and Dan said, ‘Well that’s quite Yacht Rock, isn’t it?’ And I was like ‘What on earth is Yacht Rock?’” Sensing nonetheless the foundations of a shared musical DNA, Myrddin, Jambel and Radclyffe began to dedicate serious moonlight hours to the new joint venture. PREP’s line-up was quickly solidified by frontman Tom Havelock (friendly with Radclyffe from co-writing for the likes of Riton, Sinead Hartnett and Ray BLK), who’s effortless falsetto was immediately apparent as the perfect foil to the band’s airtight grooves.

HAARM Reveal New Single ‘Box of Bones’ Released 30th March 2018 & Debut EP Announced For Late 2018


Following continued support from BBCR1, Radio X and Spotify throughout 2017, rising Liverpool alt-pop band HAARM are today streaming their first new material for 2018 in the form of latest single ‘Box of Bones’, which just picked up its first radio play from John Kennedy at Radio X.

Listen and share here:

The band are also pleased to announce that the single is the first track to be taken from their long-awaited forthcoming debut EP, with further details to be revealed.

The track will be released on 30th March via all good digital retailers, with a limited edition vinyl release through boutique record club HURD. Fans can sign up at to be in with a chance of securing a copy of the record, which will be the band’s first physical release.

Commenting on the single they said: “We wanted ‘Box of Bones’ to be a marriage between horror and pop music. We wrote the song shortly after watching a film called The Witch which came out a couple of years ago and scared the crap out of us, and we remember watching The Blair Witch Project for the first time and it genuinely scarring us for life too. We’re all obsessed with Abba, too, so we tried to squeeze as many catchy hooks in there as we could. It’s the first time we’ve deliberately attempted to write a song for the dance floor in the same vein as Justice vs Simian.”

Set for release later this year, the new EP will be a collection of brand new songs serving as the first substantial body of material that the group have released. Expanding on their thoughts about releasing their first proper collection of songs, the band said: “’Box of Bones’ is the first track that we finished from our new EP. We’ve only released a few stan-alone singles up until now, but we feel like it’s time to give people more – to present a clear idea of who we are and what we’re about as a band. We’re in this for the long haul and the new songs we’ve been writing are so rich in context and full of hooks…we’re very excited to get it out and get the live show on the road!”
