BAND OF SKULLS ON THE IVW JÄGERMEISTER SUMMER TOUR – MEET THE OPENING ACTS

Paul Stokes August 23, 2017 2017, Artist, Artists, Interview, News, Sponsors Comments Off on BAND OF SKULLS ON THE IVW JÄGERMEISTER SUMMER TOUR – MEET THE OPENING ACTS

Earlier this summer we gave musicians and fans a chance to nominate acts to open for Band Of Skulls on the intimate Jägermeister summer tour we’ve organised for next week (28 August to 1 September) using #JagerIVW on social media. After lots of entries, and plenty of brilliant music, a special panel picked four acts to open up on the four dates of the tour. Having announced those acts last week, he’s a chance to the opening acts – plus keep an eye  on our social media channels and the #JagerIVW hashtag as there will be more chances to win around the gigs…

Paisley The Bungalow, 28 August: Sky Valley Mistress

Who is in the band?
Sky Valley Mistress!

Where are you based?
Blackburn, Lancashire.

Please describe your sound.
We’re the best thing you’ve never heard.

What is your goal?
We’re going to be the greatest rock and roll band of the 21st century.

Hebden Bridge Trades Club, 29 August: Kilamojo

Who is in the band?
Alex Lillyman, Philip Warner, Dom Harris

Where are you based?
Northampton

Please describe your sound.
Fans of badly stuffed taxidermy, also a loud tripped out three-piece rock n’ roll band who are busy reinventing the wolf and enjoying going deep. Subterranean in fact. We are the bend in the spoon…

What is your goal?
To play live, loud and make a visceral rock record that leaves you wondering where you go to when you sleep. Anything else is a bonus.

Leicester, The Cookie, 31 August: MUX

Who is in the band?
It’s just the two of us, Tiz and Jonas. Nice and easy.

Where are you based?
We both live and rehearse in East London.

Please describe your sound.
We grew up listening to rock in all its variations, but as we grew up we started to properly explore the realms of electronic music, these days most of our songs include a 303 bass synth, it’s addictive once you start using it. To simplify our sound we basically use synthesisers, drum machines and samplers, along with more traditional rock instruments, to create a blend of electronica, stoner, Krautrock and punk.

What is your goal?
To keep creating and releasing music we enjoy and are proud of, calling on a varied list influences; and then to be able to share it, try and give people an alternative to the over produced music clichés of today.

Chelmsford, The Bassment, 1 September: Up Down Go Machine

Who is in the band?
Stephen Hallwood (Guitar/Vox) and Sam Martin (Drums).

Where are you based?
London.

Please describe your sound.
Up Down Go Machine hit you with soulful melodies around a husky whisky stained vocal. Gritty touches of Americana, guitar driven sounds which provide punchy yet delicate folk with dark undertones.

What is your goal?
We would absolutely love to tour America…
