SOEUR Are a new dual-fronted three-piece making pop songs drenched in grunge-heavy noise, with a smidge of math-rock seeping through the seams. Worcester raised, Bristol based, this outfit have a great pedigree of previous bands, and with a recent sold out December show in Worcester & successful Winter Tour, be sure not to miss out this time.
VAULT OF EAGLES
We’re delighted to welcome the awesome VAULT OF EAGLES to this show, having gained widespread critical acclaim throughout the UK, and a strong local following since their formation in 2010.
Visceral, angular and exposed, VAULT OF EAGLES twist their influences beyond recognition, from their psychedelic, dirty riffs to the unbridled swagger and sway of the rhythm section. Their music traverses a vast sonic spectrum of blues, psychedelia, grunge, alternative and rock, all compounded into one. Lead vocalist and guitarist, Mari, said, “This is the music we grew up with, and it’s woven into the fabric of our creativity. We want to take these influences further, and make them our own.”
“A dirge that conjures the image of P J Harvey fronting The Bad Seeds! You are in the bowels of the beast…” Slap! Magazine
“A fantastic slab of Neolithic yet contemporary alternative Rock, heavy enough to knock down buildings but delivered with a surprising twist of ethereal beauty.” (Green Man Music)

THE CORRECT ARC
The Correct Arc is Sam Knight (Theo, Esteban), Mike Neaves (of Nitkowski, One Man Team Dance) + Ambrose Neville (Action and Action, Trials of Early Man).
They are based in London and Hamsphire, respectively.
They are a potent blend of Math, Punk and Post Hardcore, blending intricacy and subtlety with a raw and incendiary dynamic reminiscent of Post HC Dischord luminaries such as Hoover, Regulator Watts and Faraquet. Essential listening and a captivating live act.
THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE
A rare live appearance from these local favourites after a long hiatus and a triumphant set at Worcester Music Festival 2015. Featuring members of Das Sexy Clap, The Broken Oak Duet, and Esteban, amongst others, The Cape Of Good Hope produce incredibly well crafted Art Rock with an off kilter Post Hardcore angle and a definite skewed pop sensibility.
“ The Cape Of Good Hope have managed to pull off the trick all bands with a penchant for spazzy American influenced post-hardcore should in order to rise above an otherwise arty mire of noise; they infuse their eclectic and expansive music with melody at every turn. With jarring guitars, complex rhythms, fucked up time signatures, and the employment of a mirage of different musical styles, they’re dangerous as hell. Welcome them into your heart.” Rocksound.
