Every Time I Die

Buffalo’s own Every Time I Die return to Newcastle to lay waste to Riverside for round 2! Expect a high octane carnival of carnage led by Keith and the boys.

Their musical style is rooted in technical hardcore punk with strong Southern rock and mathcore elements, and is also characterised by their literary, bitingly sarcastic lyrics. They have also garnered critical and fan acclaim for their high energy, intense live shows.

Bringing hits such as Wanderlust and “Decayin With The Boys” and the new album Low Teens which is dropping on the 23rd September to our stage this December!

Starsailor are back! Round Two at Riverside Newcastle and we can’t wait for them to come back!

Starsailor burst onto the scene in 2001 when their single Fever earned them the title of “Britain’s best new band”.

The band was formed at Wigan and Leigh Music College by music students James Walsh (vocals/guitar), James Stelfox (bass), and Ben Byrne (drums). Later saw the arrival of keyboardist Barry Westhead, who cemented their sound.

In April 2000, after seeing their first London show (at the Heavenly Social) the NME wrote: “One live encounter was enough to convince many sceptics that here was a band who were genuinely special, blessed with a singer whose voice thrummed like an emotional telegraph wire, that swerved the pitfalls of indie melancholia and were clearly in love with rock ‘n’ roll and all its possibilities.”

Back at Riverside on December the 21st December

Loyle Carner

Delighted to welcome Loyle Carner to Riverside Newcastle to celebrate the release of his Debut Album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’

22-year-old, South Londoner Loyle Carner announces his highly anticipated debut album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ will be released 20th January through burgeoning label AMF Records. Lead single ‘The Isle Of Arran’ was premiered this week on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show and was hailed her Hottest Record In The World. Fans can receive ‘The Isle Of Arran’, ‘Ain’t Nothing Changed’, ‘Florence’, ‘Stars & Shards’ and ‘No CD’ when they preorder ‘Yesterday’s Gone’. 

Loyle’s insight, erudition and poetic intensity have earned him the respect of all the right people: die-hard hip-hop fans, industry insiders and most importantly, his peers. ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ is planted at an intersection between the boom-bap of East Coast hip-hop, jazz-inflected portraits of South London, and soulful laid back pop. There’s a bedrock of honest and raw sentimentality running through ‘Yesterday’s Gone’. 

Album opener ‘The Isle Of Arran’ sounds a little like early Kanye – with its pitched-up gospel sample, a chorus of rhythmic claps propelling the tune along and lyrics marked by relatability, honesty, self-depreciation, themes of responsibility and family, it hits the ground running and sets the tone for the whole album.

Bury Tomorrow

Delighted to welcome Bury Tomorrow to Riverside Newcastle;

At a time when modern metal is so slavishly led by the following of whatever fashion carousel is popular this week, rare are the bands who find success on their own, gimmick-free terms. A decade into their career, Southampton/ Portsmouth quintet Bury Tomorrow are, by whatever yardstick you want to measure it, one such band.

With an ethos which has never wavered from a threefold focus on unswerving passion, unrelenting hard work and remorselessly driving, slash ’n’ burn riffola, Bury Tomorrow have hauled themselves into a position as one of the UK’s premiere purveyors of mosh by the sheer force of their own will. 2014’s ‘Runes’ saw a veritable dam-break for the band, a UK rock chart number one and top 40 success in the mainstream, it was a record that enabled them to take their devastating live show to festival main stages across Europe and the UK, before finally culminating in a headline tour which saw the band playing to 1400 braying fans at a sold out London KOKO.

Now though, with Earthbound, they have stepped things up yet another gear.

“To me, Earthbound feels like the distillation of everything we’ve ever wanted this band to be about,” says frontman Dani Winter-Bates. “Our first three records are kind of part of their own trilogy but this is Bury Tomorrow’s record, we all see this as our chance to show people what we are capable of.”

Certainly Earthbound finds BT on more concise form that ever before: ten tracks that get in, batter you across the face, and get out again with precious little time for respite or caught breath. Hardcore mentality for a metalcore generation.

“A big thing for us this time around was to get down to the real nitty gritty of what our fans wanted from us and how to give them without wasting a single second,” continues Dani. “To me, there are ten singles on this album, whereas before we’ve maybe ebbed and flowed over the course of a record, with Earthbound we wanted pace, we wanted heaviness, and for me, personally, I wanted to write a record which was the sonic embodiment of a circle pit. I think we’ve done that.”

The Quireboys

The Quireboys Are Coming – Fully Plugged And Fully Loaded

Twisted Love Tour To Electrify Fans In 2017

Reborn rock and roll reprobates The Quireboys will be plugging in and partying hard after revealing plans to roll out the critically acclaimed Twisted Love tour beyond 2016.

To see The Quireboys new video / single, click here

A 10-date run of UK acoustic shows this December brings down the curtain on another landmark year for the supercharged six-piece.

But there’s no rest for the wicked where Spike and co. are concerned and the boys are back in town from March.

Lauded as their loudest and proudest album for 25 years, Twisted Love screams heartache, passion, tears and tension. And it’s time for the record’s most powerful themes to be unleashed.

“We made this record with a full-on rock and roll show in mind,” said guitarist Guy Griffin. “The songs are some of the strongest we’ve ever written and that comes across best when all six of us are on stage and the volume is turned up.”

Not since the band’s early 90s heyday have The Quireboys sounded so compelling and so relevant. The bittersweet title track, bullish Breaking Rocks and terrific Ghost Train reveal a band going back to the future and back to what they always did best.

And if The Quireboys have proved themselves masters of an intimate and intriguing unplugged experience, then rocking out remains their traditional calling card.

“We played a handful of fully plugged shows in the UK earlier this year and the response to the new songs was tremendous,” added Griffin. “Those gigs gave us the confidence to dig deep into Twisted Love on the next tour and we can’t wait.”

Twisted Love is The Quireboys’ 10th studio album and the sound of a band enjoying a creative rebirth and a rich vein of songwriting form. More than 30 years after bursting onto the UK’s rock and roll scene their incendiary live shows continue to set the standard for the next generation of homegrown heroes.
