✪ THE HOWLERS
* * * * * * * * * * *
Formed in May 2018, London’s Desert Rockers The Howlers have gone on to receive critical acclaim from BBC Introducing, Clash Magazine and others for their ferocious live performances and determination to uproot the current foundations of popular music. Within their first 6 months, the band received significant attention from 13 Artists, Rough Trade Records, Modern Sky UK & Xray Touring before signing with Sheffield based These Bloody Thieves, alongside False Heads, MOSES, Feral Family & The C33’s
The East London trio have undertaken 3 UK wide tours since their formation, including multiple Independent Venue Week performances, SOLD OUT UK wide support tours as well as performing across multiple UK & Netherlands Festivals, ultimately leading the band to approach 40 Live dates within their first year, and gaining the seal of approval from garage rock rivals The Blinders.
The bands first DIY release ‘Circus of Horror’s became a definitive first statement from the band, now near impossible to get hold of it propelled the band into the underground scene gaining noteworthy reviews from BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio, Gigslutz and many more, the band’s Debut Single ‘La Dolce Vita’ is already predicted to amplify the london trio’s rapid rise.
‘Ambition, brutal honesty and ferocity the word’s out, The Howlers are ones to watch!’
✪ THE FLAVELLS
* * * * * * * * * * *
The Flavells formed just over a year ago in the Clifton Council estate in Nottingham. Having started initially as an acoustic outfit they have grown in both their sound and their following, and their increasing reputation landed them their recent support slot for Jake Bugg on his latest tour. Following this appearance, they impressed enough to be offered the chance to record with Jake in the studio in the next few months.
Their sound has been compared to The Clash, Nirvana, and Oasis, and they have cited influences that range from the 60s and indie sounds of The Beatles, Kula Shaker, The Libertines, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, and the Verve to the emotional depth of country artists such as Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings. These influences lead to a diversity of their sound that is a breath of fresh air.
After their successful single and E.P. launches this year, along with radio play and numerous support slots for bands such as The Fronteers, and The Swiines, they are looking forward to building on that success and hope to soon be sharing their music with the wider audience that it deserves.

✪ SMALL TOWN BOYS
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *
