NEW SHOW – THE HOSTS JOIN US IN MAY!

Delighted to welcome The Hosts to The Soundhouse on Friday 27th May as part of their UK tour!

THE HOSTS are from Sheffield, Yorkshireville. They consist of Thom Hogg (vocals, guitar), Jim Fraser (keyboards), Jamie Shipley (guitar). David Glover (bass) and new drummer Tom Reay-Bennett. Back in February 2014 they released their debut album called ‘Softly, Softly’ and now, precisely two years later, they have announced the release of the follow-up, entitled ‘Moon’ released on Fierce Panda.

‘Baby Move On’ is the first single to be launched off ‘Moon’, and sets the velveteen stage perfectly with its raucous wall-of-sound lushness and gigantically ace key changes which garnered playlist action from BBC 6Music, Single Of The Week on Absolute and stacks of plays from John Kennedy at Radio X and Janice Long over at Radio 2. Next up comes the second single. ‘Make My Heart Turn Blue’ (released on May 13th), which is an exuberantly odd take on classic rock’n’roll melodramatics, slightly like David Lynch rewriting the ‘Grease’ screenplay.

The Hosts have previously spooked the masses playing with the likes of Richard Hawley, The Walkmen, Paul Weller, Suede, Cold War Kids and Cherry Ghost.

“The Hosts’ output is redolent of Roy Orbison crooning mournfully yet manfully over mountain-high rhapsodies worthy of Spector.” – The Guardian

“Demand more magic from your music. If you want nothing less than brilliance, give The Hosts a chance and they may just be the band for you.” – www.godisinthetvzine.co.uk

NEW SHOW- THE EXCITING TRAMPOLENE JOIN US IN APRIL!

One of the most exciting bands in the country Trampolene join us on Friday 22nd April!

“If you’re going to love a band , they need to be more than a good haircut and a handful of brilliant tunes – they need to have something to say. Fortunately Trampolene are the perfect package. As well as being a raucous explosion of rock n’ roll done properly, they also have a fine poet in the form of frontman Jack Jones. With a John Cooper Clarke-esque delivery of his sideways glance into the uglier corners of modern society. Trampolene shows are punctuated by wistful and witty poems.” – Gigwise

Frontman and poet Jack recently opened for The Libertines on their Arena Tour of the UK in January, performing in-front of 20,000 at the O2 in London.

“Exceptional poetry, funny and depressing at the same time
and how often can you say that.” Dr John Cooper Clarke

“The sort of band that people tend to say they don’t make anymore, the sort that gets music fans of a certain genus and generation very misty-eyed indeed.” – The Guardian
