It's an exciting time for rising four-piece YONAKA. July saw the release of their 'Seize The Power' mixtape, featuring collaborations with Jason Butler of FEVER 333 and Barns Courtney, which they celebrated with a special show at London's Signature Brew. Now, the band are gearing up for an appearance at Reading & Leeds Festival before they hit the road with Nothing But Thieves and Airways in October. We caught up with YONAKA ahead of their upcoming shows, to find out their top touring tips and stories from the road.
Following on from a successful tour across Europe, Peterborough quartet Airways are currently out on tour across the UK. Kicking off the run of shows at Southampton Joiners last week with support from Wargasm, we headed down to see whether we would be in store for a night of great live music or be 'Out Of Luck' on this occasion.
Boardmasters 2019 kicks off tomorrow at Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach in Cornwall. With such a varied line-up we've chosen our must-see acts from the UK's biggest international surf and music festival.
2018 has already been shaping up as a very exciting year for Scottish trio The Xcerts: touring Europe with Nothing But Thieves, getting their first top 40 album with Hold On To Your Heart and completing their own run of headline shows. As Hold On To Your Heart is one of our most-played releases of the year so far we went to the final date of the tour to celebrate alongside them.
2016 has seen Nothing But Thieves tour almost solidly in support of their self-titled debut album, which was released in November last year. To round off a crazy twelve months the quintet played three of their biggest headline shows to date - all of which sold out in advance - ending with a performance at Brixton’s O2 Academy. These guys are riding a huge wave of success and after tonight 's performance this is thoroughly deserved.
