There’s a big battle going on right now in my heart at least, over who is doing Devizes most proud right now.
We have the legendary, and original home town band THE HOAX, hitting up The Corn Exchange tomorrow night (Thursday 29th August) as part of their UK tour supporting the fan pledged release of their new album. Dig a little under the surface of this band, and there’s a lot to be inspired and impressed by – They have done some truly amazing stuff, worthy of that legendary status.
If The Hoax are the original, then you have to look at DECADE being the fresh face of the new. The band who only just got back from smashing Reading & Leeds festivals, have today announced they are playing Warped Tour UK on November 17th. Surely a feet we once only dreamed of, for a band from Devizes?
They inked their first contract with Universal Records imprint, Spinefarm only a few weeks ago and have since built up momentum and reputation as one of the finest new bands on the scene. Their début album drops in spring 2014.
Also on the Warped Tour bill on Nov 17th and completing this circle of pride, we have dedicated Sheer favourites, Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun, who have played Devizes a whole bunch of times in the past few years – including a great live session for Fantasy Radio – Which you can check out here > http://fantasyradio.co.uk/programmes/fantasy-introduces/sessions/
Massive congratulations to Hoax, Jim and the boys in Decade.
Continuing our impressive run of producing acts over the past 9 years of my involvement with local live music, we have parody rapper and Youtube sensation CHIP DADDY having just signed a management deal with Channel Flip Media and will be announcing his own UK tour dates around 7pm today, in all the usual places
Blog post covering Devizes lads, Bite The Buffalo and their show in Swindon this weekend, coming tomorrow!
To lead you out, here’s a terrible audio, but great visual fan video of Decade, showing Reading who’s boss.
