GROEZROCK FESTIVAL ANNOUNCEMENT

 BELGIUMS MIGHTY GROEZROCK FESTIVAL HAS JUST ANNOUNCED MORE BANDS! SEE YOU THERE! ITS GONNA BE HUGE!

8 More new names for Groezrock.

Did you like that new 7” by GAMEFACE as much as we did? This Southern California-based band combines elements of punk, hardcore, emo and pop and has been doing so since 1990. To call them a staple in the post-hardcore scene is something of an understatement. Another post-hardcore band that has been causing waves – or even parting entire seas –is TOUCHE AMORE. If you haven’t heard their third album “Is Survived By” yet, you are missing out.

Whereas we will most likely spend the Sunday following Groezrock recovering, this next band is all about taking back that day. Yes, this is a very lame way of telling you that TAKING BACK SUNDAY will be playing at Groezrock this year. They have a new album coming out on Hopeless Records called “Happiness”. It will be out next month, just in time for you to memorize the lyrics.

When these Florida natives aren’t out saving the world disguised as the International Superheroes of Hardcore, they are simply known as NEW FOUND GLORY. Labelled by some as the godfathers of pop-punk, these guys have been a mainstay since the early nineties.

Google PUP and you’ll see a whole lot of cute pictures of little dogs. There is however nothing cute about this Canadian band who play riff-heavy, slap-you-in-the-face songs that drip with energy. Sounds nice, eh?

Equally un-cute and energetic is THE SETUP. They have been around for over a decade and show no signs of slowing down. They released “This Thing Of Ours” last year, an album that came with extra speed and melody. We are happy to have them but hope they won’t show that thing of theirs in the backstage area.

Finally, we would also like to announce two of the acts that will be playing on the Macbeth stage. CHUNK! NO, CAPTAIN CHUNK! is a French band who have been self-diagnosed as being bi-polar and who like to throw pop, punk and hardcore in the mix. Ooh la la! Oui oui! BLITZ KIDS come from the other side of the Channel and have just released their new album on Red Bull Records. They’re poppy, punky and rock-y  all at once and should have you bouncing along in no time.

That’s it for now… we still have a couple of surprises up our sleeves though so check back later!

Pup – Reservoir

Touché Amoré – Harbor

Taking Back Sunday – Flicker, Fade

Gameface – Come on Down

Blitz Kids – Sometimes

Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! – Haters Gonna Hate

New Found Glory – Connect The Dots

The Setup – Trapped under the weight

JOHNETTE NAPOLITANO ACOUSTIC TOUR


JOHNETTE NAPOLITANO of CONCRETE BLONDE
ANNOUNCES UK SHOWS
Concrete Blonde singer/ songwriter to embark on acoustic tour

Johnette Napolitano, the charismatic singer/songwriter/ founder of Concrete Blonde, will make her first visit to the UK in nearly a decade, performing a series of acoustic shows that will feature songs from her entire career and showcasing her incredible voice.

 Concrete Blonde came howling out the chute in 1986 and knocked out three classic albums by 1990: Concrete Blonde, Freeand Bloodletting. latter begat the hit single “Joey” – a sobbing love song to a dying alcoholic – perfect rock balladry. Napolitano was born in Hollywood – the belly of the beast – and her songs were (and remain) cinematic – feature films compressed into three-minute rock ‘n’ roll: “Still In Hollywood,” “God Is A Bullet,” “True.” Walking In London, Mexican Moon, and a collabo with Chicano punk-rockers Los Illegals followed. “Ghost Of A Texas Ladies Man” and “Heal It Up” – among others — hail from that period. She is also one of the great song interpreters of our time, as proven by the way she turned James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s World” , Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows” and Coldplay’s “The Scientist” into Johnette songs.
 The 21stCentury brought the gorgeous, solo album Scarred, various Concrete Blonde reunions and her book Rough Mix – a collection of short stories, lyrics and drawings. She’s now touring on her own – just an acoustic guitar and her songs, passages read from Rough Mixagainst projected backdrops of original and found art – and that voice.

JOHNETTE comments, “’m looking forward to finally get back to the UK and seeing a lot of old friends”.
  This will be a long awaited chance for UK fans to see a truly inspiring artist deliver heartfelt versions of some amazing songs in an intimate environment. Something not to be missed.

JOHNETTE NAPOLITANO tour dates
April 07- Norwich @ Waterfront Studio
April 08- Cardiff @ The Globe
April 09- London @ Jazz Café
April 10- Manchester @ Manchester Academy 3

VLR-PRESENTS THE COSMIC PSYCHOS-BLOKES YOU CAN TRUST PREMIERE!

 VIVE LE ROCK IS PROUD TO PRESENT-
The UK screening of "Cosmic Psychos: Blokes You Can Trust"
Saturday 15 March 11.30 pm, Rio Cinema, 107 Kingsland High St, London E8 2PB

COSMIC PSYCHOS : BLOKES YOU CAN TRUST (18)
(Australia 2013) dir. Matt Weston. 100m. Digital.

Ross Knight, Bill Walsh, Butch Vig, Eddie Vedder, Mark Arm.

For 30 years, the Cosmic Psychos have blazed a trail of empty beer
cans and busted ear drums around the globe with their quintessential
Australian drawl and pounding punk rock songs – a unique sound and
image that has resonated with punk rock fans worldwide. If you’ve
never heard of them, Matt Weston’s documentary is never less than
entertainingly enlightening as it follows the highs and lows of the
band’s colourful history, whilst for fans his portrait of enigmatic
founder member Ross Knight is a more than worthy tribute to one of
rock and roll’s great, if unlikely, originals.
