As the week draws to an end, we’d like to sum up the news regarding a few artists we have written about, as well as on some artists we haven’t written about yet, but will in the near future…
The March Violets are back in the U.K. and on July the 16th they will play live in Glasgow at The Classic Grand supported by Luxury Stranger. The ticket will also get you a badge, a Violets t-shirt (in a size of your choosing), plus admittance to an After Show Party.
Tickets are on sale from: http://www.musicnonstop.co.uk/themarchviolets.htm
Following an amazing support tour in Germany with Aussie Goth Rockers Ikon and an appearance at WGT2011, UK band The Hiram Key announced that they have signed with Echozone & Sony and will be joining Ikon and Vendemian on a great label.
Echozone will be re-releasing The Hiram Key’s well-received debut album with an eight-page booklet and three extra tracks. If you were one of the 650 or so people who bought the previous pressing directly from the band, then you will be able to purchase the new pressing at a discount. Also, members who join The Hiram Key’s website can download an entire live-performance album for free.
The Hiram Key will soon be touring the USA opening for US Coldwavers, Strap On Halo. Currently, Strap On Halo has begun their Memento Mori US Tour. You can catch them tonight at The Batcave @ Medusa Lounge, 3211 Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. Admittance is limited to 21 and over, with a show-time of 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM. If you’re in the area, be sure to catch their show!
Tribe4mian will soon be publishing an interview we had with this amazing American band that hails from Omaha, Nebraska, so keep an eye out for lots of insider details.
Speaking of which, Strap On Halo is preparing for the release of their full-length album, “The Dead Don’t Lie”. Raymond John Ross of the South-African band, ANKST, and Mick Shearman of the English band NightPorter, worked on the mix-down of this album.
Since we made mention of Mick Shearman, NightPorter gave an interesting interview for the Summer 2011 issue of Carpe Nocturne magazine. You can read the full interview, HERE
NightPorter is about to release their album, “Alarming but Charming” during July and will be on the road for their “Alarming but Charming” mini tour in London, Bristol and Norwich. Tribe4mian will soon hold an interview with them.
