Golly! 2 MAJOR updates regarding our home grown talent!
First up, those who follow the band, won’t of failed to notice that 2/5’s Devizes based pop-punk band DECADE were picked up by on the UK’s leading booking agents, The Agency Group. And are now represented by Ross Warnock, who if you read who he represents, it’s a who’s who of UK and US pop punk.
Well done lads, few things have made me prouder of my local scene.
They instantly followed hat up with a UK tour opening for Don Broco and that there Pure Love (featuring that dude from Gallows!) not to mention the tour they haven’t started yet with Light You Up later this month. Bands who work this hard make it. Fact.
Now if that wasn’t all well and good, we only have *probably* the UK’s best bloody blues and roll duo, BITE THE BUFFALO, ripping’ it up again, touring in America and finishing that off with a clutch of shows at this years SXSW.
Stos and Dimitri are South African ex-pats, educated at Devizes School, who played their first shows for me at The Bell BY The Green, who I supported right the way through all their bands, cRimson, Third Idea, I Am Bodhi, before finally finding their feet and sound with BITE THE BUFFALO.
The band will once again head to the Viper Rooms in LA, this time head lining – almost a week after releasing their début album BLUE LIPS, in Bath.
If you don’t already know, SXSW is one, if not the worlds prominent new music and talent festival. It’s the sort of festival where you can casually watch R.E.M play to a 60 capacity bar, and it be considered normal. Google it, search it out. It’s in Austin, Texas. Oh they also happen to be playing the same days as Frank Turner… I wonder if he will go catch them 😉
HUGE CONGRATULATORY WELL DONE’S, SLAPS ON BACKS AND TEARS AND SHIT… THANKS FOR MAKING THIS ALL WORTH WHILE!
