We are delighted to welcome back tonight one of the premier indie Leicester bands in Over The House to headline what will be an amazing night for the music scene.
Expect massively catchy riff laden indie with a fresh rock twist and attitude. Think The Libertines or early Arctic Monkeys with a midlands accent.
Ash Mammal have been making quite a stir on the local scene recently, finishing as OBS finalists and packing out several of their own headline shows.
The band are a dynamic, theatrical and exciting band, churning out varied songs that take influence from a huge range of genres. A bright blend of aggressive rock noodled with catchy guitar riffs and a dirty groove.
2014 has seen Casino Empire come on leaps and bounds, supporting the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen and featuring at This Feeling - expect big things from these guys.
Fantastic fresh indie outfit, recently featuring at Handmade festival and supporting the likes of Wolf Alice, Jaws and Whales in Cubicles – get down early to catch these guys in action!
Doors open at 7.30pm, £6 on the door.

Strangling Vinyl Promotions is pleased to bring the fantastic The Longcut to The Soundhouse for a special show on Saturday 6th December, their first show in over a year in fact!
The band’s original sound and energetic live performances brought them to the attention of the record industry in 2004, eventually signing to Liverpool’s Deltasonic label, home to the likes of The Coral and The Zutons.
The Longcut released their debut EP Transition in November 2004, followed by A Quiet Life in June 2005. Both EPs sold out and were well received by the music press. The band continued to tour throughout 2005, including appearances at SXSW, Glastonbury Festival and Fuji Rock Festival. Work on their debut album, A Call and Response, began in the summer of 2005. Production duties were handled by Jonny Dollar (who had previously worked on Massive Attack’s Blue Lines) and was mixed by TV on the Radio’s David Andrew Sitek.
This was followed by recording of their second album. Produced by Nine Black Alps guitarist David Jones, the album Open Hearts was released as a download on the Melodic Records website in June 2009. After a few quiet years the band are now back to try out brand new material for a rare show at The Soundhouse!
Support from The Dirty G’s and Catbone.

The Soundhouse and Dead Beat Promotions are pleased to bring you The Altered Hours on Monday 6th October.
Fresh from opening for cult psychedelic-rock pioneers The Brian Jonestown Massacre in Dublin’s Academy in July – and with their debut album nearing completion -– The Altered Hours exist in a swirl of the psychedelic and hypnotic. Their live shows are known for their intensity and the band’s ability to envelope both themselves and the crowd in their sound.
Having recorded their first EP Downstream DIY, the band were invited to record their second EP, Sweet Jelly Roll, with Fabien Leseure in Berlin. It was subsequently released in May 2013 on Anton Newcombe’s A Recordings, home of psychedelic pioneers The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dirty Beaches and Magic Castles. The group released a 7” – Dig Early – on Cork label Art For Blind in April of this year and will put out their highly anticipated first album early 2015, which will be aired on their UK tour.

The Soundhouse is excited to bring you the phenomenal talent that is Cate Ferris on Saturday 27th September.
The David Rodigan (BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ) endorsed songstress is set to release her EP ‘Disappear’ in September 2014 on Akira Records.
Most people will know Cate from her collaboration with Dizraeli & The Small Gods – where her performances have gained her glowing reviews – “steals the show with the kind of vocal acrobatics that make your hair stand on its very end”. Recently, she has been working with electronic artist Alex Banks, co-wrote and performed the Radio 1 endorsed Nordic Giants song ‘Shine’ and wrote/performed for the unexpected ‘Roots Garden – Blaze Bright’ track which blew David Rodigan away! In a recent Independent Newspaper interview, the Radio 1 DJ cited her as being one of the emerging artists he has ‘high hopes’ for! ‘Disappear’ is the new EP which sees Cate Ferris emerge from this broad musical heritage whilst still retaining her own unique vision that is bristling with humanity and bold invention.
“Like a pre-electric White Stripes (but only with Joni Mitchell singing)” – Buckle Up
“What a beautiful thing” – Sean Keavney on “Shine” – BBC6 Music

The Soundhouse is delighted to bring to you THE TEA STREET BAND on Friday 3rd October, bring your dancing shoes!
Their single Lost For Words made the playlist at XFM and was chosen by Huw Stephens as BBC Intro Single of the week. These plaudits are richly deserved for this five piece from Liverpool. The lads will be opening the Dance stage at this years Reading and Leeds Festival, as well as getting the groove on at Strawberry Fields Festival as part of the This Feeling stage.
The band have toured with Inspiral Carpets and have played shows with The Charlatans with their infectious electro, house guitar pop going down a storm.
The Tea Street Band cross over genres and have the spirit of the dancefloor. Some of their songs are becoming anthems across Merseyside and perhaps it’s only a matter of time before the ears of the rest will be singing their songs
“Think of The Charlatans meeting The Chemical Brothers and lap up the finest cuppa that clubbers can come across”
John Earls, Daily Star
“A shared love of rave culture is present in their output – it’s soaring, distinctly Balearic and sounds as much European as it is rooted in English rock and roll”
Peter Guy, Liverpool Echo
