NEW SINGLE OUT NOW

UK & EU TOUR ANNOUNCED
APRIL 2019

Critically acclaimed London four-piece The King’s Parade have released their brand new single ‘Mad’. To mark the release the band have announced a headline tour across the UK and Europe in April. Tickets are available now via thekingsparade.com

‘Mad’ finds The King’s Parade delivering a deep song addressing human consciousness. The song flits between smooth and gritty vocals, driven by a captivating percussive sound that builds towards a huge anthemic chorus. It sees The King’s Parade blend alt-soul and blues influences with a pop sensibility that plays like a melding of Alabama Shakes, The Black Keys and Leon Bridges.

Regarding the single frontman Olly Corpe says, “‘Mad’ is about the energy felt between two people we tend to call chemistry. It can happen the second you see or meet someone, or it can happen over time, but it’s just a feeling you have within yourself. It can’t be quantified or justified; it’s just a state of being. Sometimes it feels so mysterious that you start to question whether it exists at all. ‘Mad’ is about that moment.”

‘Mad’ is the first taste of new music from The King’s Parade following the release of their Woman EP last year, which saw them receive strong tastemaker support from the likes of BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, The Independent, Wonderland, Clash, Mahogany and many more.

They’ve built up a fervent live fanbase and have completed a number of sold out headline tours across the UK and Europe. The King’s Parade are hitting the road again in April. They will play four countries in Europe before coming to the UK to play three dates across the country including London, Leeds and Brighton. Full tour dates can be found below:

ARCHIE FAULKS Releases New Single ‘Hung Up’

‘HUNG UP’
NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
LISTEN ON SPOTIFY / SOUNDCLOUD

UK HEADLINE TOUR ANNOUNCED
APRIL 2019

ARCHIE FAULKS has released his brand new single ‘Hung Up’. To mark the release Archie has announced a full UK headline tour in April. Tickets are available now www.archiefaulks.co.uk

‘Hung Up’ is a pensive look back on the past, yet delivers an upbeat glimmer of hope for the future.

The single premiered with Clash as their ‘Track Of The Day’ who said, “Archie Faulks is able to match the bitter to the sweet. Able to tackle some of the most complex emotional issues in his life, his work nonetheless has a sparkling melodic touch. Take new single ‘Hung Up’. A song about disappoint, and being able to move past an experience of failure, it confronts a darker moment in Archie’s life. Yet it’s delivered with a sunshine melodic flair, with a neat twist in the chorus that continually surges towards the optimistic.”

Regarding the single Archie says, “‘Hung Up’ is a song about not being able to get over the disappointments of the past. It’s easy to keep replaying these events, isolating different factors to blame for their failure while, conveniently, ignoring your own part in their demise. 

“You can’t hide from your own truth; the only way to improve is acceptance and then working out the best way of dealing with it. This song was my way of trying, still to be decided if successfully or not, with dealing with certain truths which I had been hiding from for many years of my life.”

‘Hung Up’ sees Archie deliver his brightest sound yet, channelling a pop sensibility into his enthralling songwriting. The new single follows the release of his debut single ‘It Rains’ and ‘Blackout’ in 2018. Both songs proved hits at radio with support coming from Radio 1 and Radio X, while they clocked up over a million streams across Apple Music & Spotify.

The songs are a taste of Archie’s forthcoming debut album, which fans have been treated to a sneak preview of during his touring last year. Archie played his first shows in the US, toured Europe with Isaac Gracie and Rue Royale, and sold out his headline shows at London’s St Pancras Old Church & Servant Jazz Quarters.

Archie is hitting the road again in April for his first ever headline tour. He will play seven dates across the country, starting at The Jacaranda, Liverpool on April 13th and finishing at London’s Camden Assembly on April 23rd. Archie has also been announced to play The Great Escape Festival on May 10th.

HAAS Releases Music Video For Debut Single “Behind Those Eyes”

IMG_7017

Virginia-based pop/rock project HAAS have released a music video for their debut single, “Behind Those Eyes,” out NOW. After an extensive about of self-discovery and reflection, lead vocalist Sam Haas brings the project to life through a reflective set of lyrics in “Behind Those Eyes.” HAAS approaches the broad pop/rock genre with ease; “Behind Those Eyes” showcases pulsing, rhythmic guitars and powerful lead vocals. The single paves the way for HAAS’ five-track debut EP, due out later this year. The music video, which serves as an open letter of sorts to Sam’s sister, kicks off with an emotional discussion between the pair, setting the tone for a moving, yet powerful, visual. About the track, lead vocalist Sam Haas states:

“Behind Those Eyes” is the debut single off HAAS’ upcoming EP. This song is about the dynamics of my relationship with my sister, at a particular point in time, and how an outside influence was changing my perception of her. The song shows the emotional roller coaster that was a year of my life. It shows how an outside influence can have so much influence over someone. This is a song about my efforts to “save” her, but at some point, you have to stop trying and move on. Though this song is immensely personal, I believe that it can be applied to any type of relationship

HAAS is a pop/rock band from Virginia. The name HAAS stems from lead vocalist Sam Haas who decided to pay tribute to not only her family name but her late grandfather who inspired her through his music. After years of playing around with names and ideas, HAAS became the official name in 2018. Through the use of catchy melodies, rhythmic guitars, and expressive lyrics, HAAS has been able to marry the pop/rock sound. The group uses music not only as an outlet for themselves, but want the music to be an outlet for others. They draw on personal hardships, such as loss, strained relationships, bullying, depression, and anxiety, but also hardships within the world today. HAAS strives to promote a place of safety and inclusivity, where it is okay to be who you are and forget about the real world for a minute. HAAS has discussed being bullied and scared of being who they are and by embracing themselves, they hope to inspire others to do the same; “love who you are and don’t be afraid to do the things you want.” HAAS plans to release their debut five-song EP in the Spring. Their new single “Behind Those Eyes” is available on all digital platforms NOW.
