Reading alt rock band, ECHOIC will be headlining The Lamb in Devizes on Friday 24th July.
The 4 piece who have been described as “Absolutely amazing, such a unique sound” by Linda Serck, of BBC Introducing Berkshire, will be stripping back to an acoustic set up for the evening.
Since forming in late 2013, they have supported artists as varied as Pulled Apart By Horses, Mark Morriss (The Bluetones) and Fatherson (T in the Park) at venues such as O2 Academy Oxford and O2 Academy Islington. They have built a large following in their hometown since their formation, selling upwards of 180 tickets to shows hosted by the band over summer 2014. In December 2014 the band entered the studio to record their debut EP with Jason Wilson. (You Me At Six, Don Broco, We Are The Ocean).
Lead single, Last Train, which incidentally does not refer to the time Alex Fruen and I missed the last train back from Paddington to Chippenham after watching Nine Inch Nails, as a result of a tube delay. We hopped on the slooooooow train back to Reading, which stopped off at every bloody village and took like, 2 hours. ANYWAY, it can be heard here… or if you’re reading this via the blog, below.
Their wicked press pics make awesome posters, which will be up shortly – designed by the lovely Rob Escott at The Colour Of Vinyl.
Support comes from the equally as cool / exciting Swindon based band, WITH GHOSTS, who you will have seen supporting Gnarwolves, Decade and Moose Blood for us. No footballing type rivalry here (we all know Reading is better.) It will be cool to have a proper alt rock night in town. Obligatory Youtube video here. Or below if you’re on the blog…
Entry to the show, as with all our Lamb gigs will be FREE & come with an ace playlist. Head over to the Facebook page and show the bands some love. Doors 8pm.
All the beat.
