★ VANITY BOX
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Vanity Box are a rock band from Nottingham, England. Formed in 2009, they cut their teeth in pubs across Nottinghamshire. As pubs across home turf began to fill out with fans, offers of bigger venues and better slots started coming in. The band were hand picked by Sound Of Guns as support at Nottingham Rock City.
Influenced by Kings of Leon, Sound of Guns, Biffy Clyro and Smashing Pumpkins, Vanity Box’s sound is admirably heavy on guitars and pounding drums.
“Vanity Box offer a platter of anthemic power chords, jangly guitars and rough ‘n’ ready vocals song after song, forming a trifle-like layering of musical goodness.” – Exposed Magazine
‘Go see Vanity Box! You can expect loud guitar-laden rock with an attitude to match’ – Nusic.org.uk – 100% New, Notts Music

Spawned from the ashes of shit bands and a plethora of line-up changes, False Heads were cemented when old school friends Luke Griffiths (vocals/guitar), Jake Elliott (bass) and Barney Nash (drums) came back together in mid 2015.Describing their sound as crack rock punk, their insanely catchy lo-fi riffs alongside Griffiths biting lyrics soon reached the ears of Libertine Gary Powell who didn’t hesitate to sign them to his own label.
First single Steal and Cheat was released on 25 Hour Convenience Store in December of that year, to an audience ready to receive. Acclaim from the likes of NME, Drowned in Sound, Clash, The Independent and Q Magazine as well as radio support from the likes of The Independent, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Kerrang! and Radio X saw the music industry sit up and listen.
Backed with a series of energetic and unflinching live shows, the band caught the attention of punk rock cornerstone Danny Fields (The Ramones, Iggy Pop, The Stooges) who proclaimed he was ‘almost giving up, but now hope for the future of rock and roll is renewed – for me that’s a very big deal’.
Think Frank Black impersonating Ian Dury after stealing Elliott Smith’s notebook; Add in a backdrop of Kurt jamming with The Buzzcocks and you’re just starting to get the picture of what the newest pretenders to the post-millennial punk rock throne have in store.
“Cementing a reputation for epic live shows”
”You thought I’d forgotten about Rock’n’roll. Here’s the False Heads, Rock’n’roll and alternative guitar whacking and bashing music…. I liked it’ – Iggy Fucking Pop
‘Loving their punk rock, mixed with a bit of indie as well’ Kerrang!

Nottingham based trio Foule blend chilled psychedelic music with soulful vocals creating a deliciously new edge to alternative indie rock.
