Stevenage goth standard-bearers FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM join forces with Aussie psych legends THE CHURCH this autumn for three UK dates.
Having come to prominence during the 80s, at opposite ends of the same spectrum, this will be the first time the two bands have toured together.
Formed in 1984, the Nephilim, still featuring original members Carl McCoy and Tony Pettitt, broke an 11-year recording hiatus with a new single ‘Prophecy’ in 2016.
Billed as Special Guests, The Church came together in Sydney in 1980 and released their latest album Man Woman Life Death Infinity last autumn and have just completed a successful series of UK headline shows on the back of an appearance at Robert Smith’s Meltdown Festival.

The two bands play the following dates…
Monday 29th Oct – O2 Ritz Manchester
Wednesday 31st Oct – O2 Shepherds Bush Empire
Thursday 1st Nov – O2 Institute Birmingham
Tickets are on sale here.

Oz-punk sensations AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS are set to make their UK debut this month with a series of dates and their debut release for Damaged Goods.
The band formed in Melbourne in 2016, writing, recording and releasing their debut EP Giddy Up in a mind-numbing 12 hours. It was followed last year by a second EP, Big Attraction. Combined on a single album, the release has been flying out of the racks ever since. Big Attraction & Giddy Up is now getting a much-needed re-release by Damaged Goods on 18 May. It’s available to order here.
the band play two shows in Brighton as part of The Great Escape festival this weekend before heading to London for a string of shows, culminating in an already sold-out gig at The Lexington on Wednesday 23 May. Full dates are…
Fri 18th Prince Albert, Brighton (TGE Festival)
Sat 19th Australian BBQ – The Beach 12.50pm – 1.15pm, Brighton (TGE Festival)
