FUTUREHEADS FRONTMAN BARRY HYDE HERE IN MAY!

Responsible for some of the biggest indie anthems of the past 10 years, Futureheads frontman Barry Hyde is at The Soundhouse Leicester on Friday 19th May in support of his first solo record, ‘Malody’.

“Those familiar with my work with The Futureheads may be expecting an album of new wave inspired, four-part harmony, guitar music. ‘Malody’ couldn’t be further away from that. The album is based around my first instrument, the piano, and also features violin, cello, double bass, tenor and baritone sax, pedal steel and trumpet.” -Barry Hyde

While in the midst of a severe mental breakdown in 2012, Barry was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a mania he’d battled for the past decade. Masked by the success of The Futureheads, the bliss of performing kept him stable, and following their hiatus, Barry focused on teaching music and training as a chef. Today, Hyde has found balance and stability, helped in part by the creation of his debut solo album, which documents his life with bipolar disorder. Predominantly piano led, Malody has an intense and vivid energy, it’s also strikingly elegant -a quality enhanced by the addition of a six-piece ensemble. A far cry from the The Futureheads’ trailblazing herky-jerky indie hits, the dramatic and moving record establishes Hyde as an idiosyncratic songwriter and pianist.

NEVER THE BRIDE HERE IN SEPTEMBER!

The amazing Never The Bride are here on Friday 8th September!

In the very heart of the notorious London rock and roll scene exists a whirlwind duo of female energy and ecstasy, please meet Never The Bride.

Their live performance is to be held in awe, purely in anticipation of the live operatic architecture they consistently unfurl upon their willing audiences. Having invaded venues ranging from The Royal Albert Hall (on multiple occasions), playing alongside Elton John, Appearing in The British Symphony Rock Symphony Australia & UK Tours alongside, Roger Daltrey, Paul Rogers, Wembley Arena supporting The Who, The Viper Room in LA and Euro-fests galore – to intimate spaces like The Green Note in Camden, Never The Bride have amazed and floored audiences and peer groups alike over their 25 years of service – these ladies are true rock and roll royalty.

Roger Daltrey broadcast “Nikki Lamborn has the best female rock voice since Janis Joplin and I know what I’m talking about, I knew Janis”. The legendary Dame Shirley Bassey called the girls “inspirational”, they have performed shows for Cher and Liza Minnelli and Bob Harris from BBC Radio 2 referred to them as “one of the best live bands in Britain”; the ladies’ roll-call list is simply mind blowing – as are the stories the ladies readily share.
Their raw, unfettered talent is undeniable and is enough to justify the impression the girls have left on audiences throughout Never The Bride’s 25 years of global domination.
