The Canadian alt-folk/alt-pop outfit The Franklin Electric will be back in London next month for a low-key show promoting their second album, the 2017 release ‘Blue Ceilings’. The London show follows a short run of dates across Germany and a trip to The Netherlands.
Prophets of Rage, the critically acclaimed union between members of Rage Against The Machine and Public Enemy legend Chuck D will release their eagerly awaited full length debut next month.
For those who can’t wait that long for new material, there’s some good news. A new video for ‘Radical Eyes’ has been posted online and can be seen in full below.
In June 2017, The Orwells played at the British Summer Time event at London’s Hyde Park, alongside Green Day, Rancid, Bash & Pop and more besides. This coming weekend they’ll be appearing at the Reading and Leeds Festivals (August 25-27, 2017).
Later in the year, they’ve secured support slots with both Weezer and the legendary Pixies. It’s certainly a busy time for the Chicago based band.
You can check out a full list of their post-Reading/Leeds tour dates below, as well as their new video – ‘Vacation’ – which mixes Strokes-obsessed sounds with some truly awful haircuts!

Up Down Go Machine are a hard working Americana themed band from the UK. In 2015, the supported the legendary Shawn Smith (Brad/Pigeonhed) on a handful of intimate dates. It resulted in a rare sighting of a “must-see” support act. [A few more thoughts about the London gig can be found here.]
Hardcore/alt-rock legends At The Drive In have issued a new video for ‘Call Broken Arrow’, a track taken from their 2017 release “in•ter a•li•a”. The band reformed in 2015 following the demise of The Mars Volta.
The full animated clip can be seen in the embedded box below. “in•ter a•li•a” is available now on Rise Records.
REAL GONE SAYS: It’s good to have At The Drive In back…though we’ve never really recovered from their live set at the Reading Festival back in 2000!
