10th: Basement – The Key Club, Leeds
After supporting Bring Me The Horizon last November, the Basement boys are back with a teeny tiny UK tour. Having already played shows in Southampton, London, Manchester and Glasgow, their Leeds shows are the only dates left on the tour. Bearing in mind I believe tickets are all sold out, but if you can manage to worm your way into the gig then go for it because Basement are an insane live band. Album title track Promise Everything is everything that you’d expect from a emo band and more.
16th: The Amazons – The Boileroom, Guildford
BBC’s Sound of 2017 nominees The Amazons are out on a UK tour at the moment and the dates are mostly sold out; rightfully so. The 16th sees them stop at Guildford’s iconic Boileroom for what is set to be another quality live show from the Reading band. Tracks such as In My Mind and Black Magic will sound too big for the venues they’ll be in so get down and check out this band before tickets start selling out well in advance.
22nd: Hawk – The Hope & Ruin, Brighton
Sad Lamp and Veta Records are coming together to put on Hawk; hailing from Berlin. Hawk have been compared to ‘Warpaint and The Cranberries with hints of Slow Dive and Radiohead,’ so you don’t wanna miss out.
Joining them on the night are Brighton based The Hundredth Anniversary who have played shows alongside Wolf Alice and Fear of Men. For only £5 you’re getting to see three bands in an intimate venue, what more could you want?
28th: Blaenavon – The Bullingdon, Oxford
After announcing their debut album, these Hampshire boys are going out on tour with support from The Night Cafe (24th March – 1st April) and Anteros (2nd – 7th April). These will be the smallest venues you’ll have the chance to see Blaenavon in for a long time and it’s worth heading down to catch a band ready to take on the world.
30th: Seats + Glass Peaks – Prince Albert, Brighton
Our pals over at Fan Club Promotions are hosting Seats and Glass Peaks at the Prince Albert. Brighton based Seats are onto great things having played a number of noteworthy gigs and festivals as well as being featured on Radio X and BBC Introducing. Catching Glass Peaks on their UK tour is a must for music fans, they’ll be bringing their self-proclaimed ‘melancholic alt-pop’ tunes to win you over. Don’t miss them at the Prince Albert as it may be the last time you catch both bands at such an intimate venue.
31st: Circa Waves – O2 Kentish Town Forum
Celebrating the release of their incredibly exciting second album (10/03) Circa Waves set out on their UK tour, kicking it off with a date at Sheffield’s O2 Academy. Having not toured the UK for a while, but only playing a small selection of intimate gigs, Circa Waves are geared up and ready to cause carnage. On hearing tracks Wake Up, Fire That Burns and Stuck their next album is going to be like nothing we’ve ever heard from the Scouse quartet. If the songs are anything to go by, you wouldn’t want to miss out on their live shows.
