Evil Blizzard and Pigs x7 play Preston, Paper Kites visit Arts Club, Gaika drops new track


Evil Blizzard

Monks will play a headline show at Arts Club, and a new album from Palase as EVOL release two dates coming from down under, Getintothis’ Lewis Ridley with the news.

A huge show is set for Preston Guild Hall in April as Evil Blizzard come to town for their one and only 2019 show.

Following the release of their debut album in 2014, the band have gone from strength to strength and are taking on the challenge of headlining a massive night for alternative rock, punk and hardcore.

Newcastle’s Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are also on the bill, the band have just released their latest album, King of Cowards and are one of the hottest riff makers around, and own one of the most inquisitive band names there is.

The show is an insane six band lineup which is set to be the loudest and most ferocious yet, and the response from fans has led promoters to hope that such an event will be an annual one.

Also on the bill are Blackpool 80s heroes The Membranes, and the ferocious local outfit Strange Bones. They’ll be joined by Part Chimp and hometown band Fighting.

It’s a must see for anyone who enjoyed last years Rebellion, and there are less than 200 tickets left for the show on Saturday, April 13.

The Membranes

As part of their huge tour of UK, Ireland and Europe, Melbourne band The Paper Kites will play at the Arts Club Loft in December.
