VELVET HANDS OF DEATH!

Cornish garage types THE VELVET HANDS have just unveiled a video for the latest single off their debut album.

‘Everyone Is Dead’ is a raucous lament to those who left us during that fateful year of 2016 – Bowie, Prince, George Michael… but also a celebration of life itself. We only get one chance, so make the most of it. We think this storming track’s not a million miles from another legendary departed rocker, but imitation’s the sincerest form of flattery, right?

The band play dates this week as part of Red Stripe’s This Feeling tour. Catch them on the road at…

Oct 5th – The Engine Shed – Lincoln
Oct 6th – WaterRats – London
Oct 11th – The Venue – Derby
Oct 12th – The Electric Church – Blackburn
Oct 13th – Lending Room – Leeds

Their debut album Party’s Over is available now on CD and vinyl on Zen Ten Records through Easy Action and digitally through all the usual download stores.

BACK IN BUSINESS!

Oi legends THE BUSINESS are set to return, when they headline the final day of the Punk & Disorderly festival in Berlin next year, which they’ve announced with a video message to their many fans…

The long-serving and much-loved band formed in Lewisham, South-East London in 1979 but came to a halt with the tragic death of founding frontman Micky Fitz from cancer at the end of 2016.

For the festival, at Astra Kulturhaus, Berlin on 14 April, The Business will feature, for the first time on one stage together, early days members Steve Kent, Steve Whale and Mick Fairbairn. Of course the inimitable Fitz is irreplaceable, but for this show, the band will feature a trio of special guest singers – Al Barr from DROPKICK MURPHYS, Roi Pearce from THE LAST RESORT and COCKNEY REJECTS’ Jeff Turner.

The rest of the bill for the day features the Rejects, The Last Resort, DISCHARGE, BOOZE & GLORY, THE DETAINED, RUDE PRIDE, TANK SHOT and CUT MY SKIN.

Tickets are on sale here.
