We’re injecting some essential spark into the springtime this year, with three rising rock bands set to deliver the goods on May 26th!
Eat Your Own Head, Sleemo and Rats Nest are charged and ready.
“Music that will put hair on your chest, even if you don’t want it” – BBC 6 Music, Tom Robinson
Eat Your Own Head – Drawn together by a collective yearning to play extremely loud music, Eat Your Own Head present an enticing blend of rich, heavy alt-rock that sidesteps some of the genres more obvious pitfalls and replaces them instead with muscular vocals, hooks, and a technical and unpredictable musicality that evokes comparisons to early Marmozets, Blacklisters, Blakfish, and &U&I. Taking inspiration from everything from Nirvana to Black Midi, the band formed in 2019 and were straight out of the blocks with the Hank EP in 2020, quickly landing themselves notable accolades from 6 Music, Louder Than War, Amazing radio and many more.
Sleemo – A 3 piece independent alternative band from Norwich, Norfolk. Formed mid 2019, Sleemo quickly garnered a reputation for their deafeningly loud and fiercely energetic live performances, steadily evolving from psychedelic tinged punk into heavier and darker alternative music, showcasing a unique and dynamic songwriting style that transcends the boundaries to create something unique and refreshing that is authentic to them.
RATS NEST – Music for the under looked rodents. RATS NEST are a three piece melodic Street Punk band hailing from South East England. Having only been a band for a couple of years, they have rapidly made a name for themselves across the UK and further afield, making quick work to assert themselves as an upcoming powerhouse within the scene. Their message is ‘Self Worth, Self Respect and to Stay True’ (which is a message that is strongly needed in this day and age). They pride themselves on spreading that philosophy in their music and lyrics.
“Technicality, huge riffs, and vocal delicacies contrasted against vein-bursting screams, showcasing the Eat Your Own Head’s capacity to combine hooks into a rock song that’s anything but predictable” – Louder Than War
“It’s a lot of noise combined with massive energy. Sleemo’s music is a wild trip. You won’t sit still, that’s a promise!” – Dead Good Music
