Alpha Male Tea Party

Explosively upbeat guitar-driven rock from these legends in the math rock scene. We’ve enjoyed them at ArcTanGent, Dunk!festival, StrangeForms Festival and Handmade Festival, and after a healthy dose of national and international tours, they continue to be a band that gets better and better.

Their new album ‘HEALTH’ is out this year!

“Tear-jerkingly beautiful… furious, and all in all, it’s pure, 18-carat fun. Fun is never a bad thing, right? – 8/10″ – Rock Sound

“Predominantly instrumental, utterly exhilarating heavy rock.’” – Total Guitar

“Awe-inspiring metallic proficiency to jagged post-punk gnarl; from brain-crushing heaviosity to wordless, jaw-to-the-floor anthems. – 4/5″ – The Skinny

Valerian Swing

Eclectic and experimental math rock from Italy. With a couple of stupendously good albums, European and American tours and an SXSW appearance under their belts, the trio have an insatiable appetite for playing live, and can’t see any better reason that the release of their latest album ‘Aurora’.

“Borderline insane, wildly syncopated, and above all- precise.” – Echoes And Dust

Asian Death Crustacean

Formed in the midlands in late 2013 from an unlikely fusion of various projects, this four-piece channels post-rock, extreme metal, jazz and ambient/electronic music into extended instrumental compositions.

Having spent three years refining their sound and playing shows in the midlands and London, culminating in headlining a UK tour in summer 2016, they’re now focused on recording our debut album.

Very impressive live and we can’t wait for them to get themselves on record.
