Following the release of their brand new single “The Batlle For Clear Sight” on 14th October 2013, Larry and His Flask are back on our shores to win over yet more hearts and minds of the good people in Europe and the UK throughout December (see tourdates here or on underneath poster).
The five-piece from Oregon, USA who supported Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls in the UK as well as playing their own headline shows earlier this year will further spread the gospel of their infectious and frenetic homespun bluegrass/anarchic rock.
Larry and His Flask are a high energy, five piece band that have incorporated many facets of Folk, Punk, Gypsy Jazz, Bluegrass, Soul and Brass band Music to create their very own unique brand of rock and roll. Some people call it folk-punk, some people call it down right wild. But no matter what you call it, their live show is one to be seen and heard!
It’s the end of the year, Winter is coming and with that the cosiness and fireplace stories. What fits in better than some sweet soul music? That’s what Jeff Hershey & The Heartbeats must have thought as well. He decided to release a Christmas 7″ single and come to Europe to warm our souls in these cold days.
Their tour kicks off tomorrow in Den Haag and will go through France, Spain, Italy and Germany. Find all tourdates underneath the poster.

The Canadian noisecoretrio METZ were one of the highlights of last month’s Hit The City in Eindhoven. This week they will end their month-long European tour and they will return to The Netherlands for two more shows: Vera, Groningen (Nov-29th) and Le Guess Who?, Utrecht (Nov-30th).
METZ play loud. With a no-nonsense mentality, they live up to the old saying “if it doesn’t fit in a van, it’s not worth bringing”. Okay, that might not actually be an old saying, but at least it holds up for METZ. It’s one of those bands that, without even trying, reminds you that being in a band is about playing music with the highest levels of energy and devotion possible, leaving nothing but a trail of dropped jaws in their wake. With just a guitar, bass and drum kit they have devoured basements, skate shops, clubs, and festivals with relentless force.
“The ten songs of their debut album still sound mercilessly hard and intense, with whipping breaks that are as effective as with the release a year ago. In fact: it’s clear that this album is full of rock-hard ‘hits’, performed better than ever. Meanwhile, the three totally go all the way in a packed, hot Rambler and the low ceiling gets hit by the guitar necks regularly. Spectacularly good! And now, get us that second album soon..” – Kicking The Habit

More news soon!
