PLEASE NOTE: The 15 November show has sold out – so we’ve added a second date the following Wednesday, which is also going to sell out!

We’re delighted to be working with The Burning Hell once again – for two shows at their favourite pub, the Eagle Inn!

The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road in one form or another since 2007, playing everywhere from the chaos of Glastonbury to the loneliness of the Arctic Circle, popping up in bars, festival tents, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France along the way. In its current formation, The Burning Hell has Mathias Kom joined by longtime collaborators Ariel Sharratt (bass clarinet, drums) and Darren Browne (bass guitar, bouzouki).

In the autumn of 2017, The Burning Hell will release their eighth full-length album, Revival Beach, and embark on a tour that will take them from the Rocky Mountains to the Mountains of Mourne, across the Tyrrhenian and the Norwegian Seas, and many other places in between. Always restless, The Burning Hell looks forward to a year of new sounds, new songs, and new people to share them with.

15 NOVEMBER: Support comes from Seazoo, an act that started out as nothing more than a bedroom-recording project in 2013. Surprising momentum built, however, as their Grandaddy/Yo La Tengo/SFA-inspired recordings began to gain support from the BBC. Huw Stephens, Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, Mark Radcliffe have all played previous tunes from the Ken, Car Deborah and JUMBO EPs. Rather excellently, Marc Riley invited them to perform a live session for his 6 Music show. They accepted, ferociously.

Seazoo have brightened up Green Man, Festival No. 6, Lost Map’s Howlin’ Fling on Eigg, Swn, Truck, Canadian Music Week, The Great Escape and even the legendary basketball court that is Maida Vale Studio 3. 2016 saw the band release their first 7″ on the beautiful Too Pure label, and the band will release their debut album in 2017!

This show is completely sold out! But tickets are still available for the second show a week later – see below.

22 NOVEMBER: Support comes from Granfalloon. Granfalloon is the musical project of Manchester-based artist Richard Lomax. Distilling elements of lo-fi, folk and psych into a mix of electronics and delicate acoustics, they released a series of singles throughout 2017 and their debut album, Down There For Dancing, was recently released through The Dogan.

Lomax has released two albums with surrealist collective Johnny5thWheel&thecowards through Sotones Records (Band of Skulls, Moulettes) as well as touring extensively as a solo artist through the UK, Europe and Australia supporting artists as diverse as Emma Pollock, Jamie T and Thomas Truax.
