Alternative Rockers Mallory Knox Gear Up For Date In Sussex Ahead Of Release Of Self-Titled Album

Mallory Knox have announced a date at BlackMarket VIP, Hastings, as part of a tour to promote their forthcoming self-titled album.

"This tour will take us back to a lot of places we haven't visited in years & in some cases to places we've never played before," says vocalist and bassist Sam Douglas.

"It's gonna be great to get back out there & finally show everyone what we've been working on for so long."

This is the fourth album release for the English alternative rock band from Cambridge, who have just released new single White Lies.

"We've been waiting a long time to release new music that really represents what we are about now," says Sam of the band's new material. 


"The album was recorded over four different sessions & 'White Lies' was the last song we wrote for the record. 

"I feel like it's the song I've always wanted to write & collectively we're all very proud of it."

They say that you only get one self-titled album in your career, so you better make it count. 

Yet there was something about this collection of songs that the band, completed by guitarists Joe Savins and James Gillett and drummer Dave Rawling, just felt was absolutely perfect for such a moniker. 

Mallory Knox play BlackMarket VIP, Hastings, on 21st September 2019. For tickets CLICK HERE. Their self-titled album is released on 16 August 2019. For info CLICK HERE.

Creature Creature can, via the imminent release of their first collection of self-penned tracks, Two Finger Tantrum, be labelled the new flag bearers of rock. The Brighton-based five piece have furrowed a new burrow at the summit of an age old genre. With this debut album they will be looking over their shoulders at the also-rans for many years to come.

On Sunset, Paul Weller's fifteenth solo album, which drops this Friday, sees one of the UK's most successful songwriters barely affected by the present situation that has placed the music industry, as much as the wider economy, largely on pause: “I haven't really been bothered by the lockdown, other than having to queue for food or medicine.”

Of all the formative experiences Stonehaven musician Fair Mothers, AKA Kevin Allan, had while growing up, reading The Stranger, by Albert Camus, stands out.

Katie Elfer & ‘I Want to be Red'

Few people miss the daily commute, as many employees switch to home working to tackle Covid-19. Katie Elfer, a regular train passenger from Brighton, used the journey time to write her first children's book which has just been published.

Moy wrote and recorded second single No Talk's The Best Chat at the height of lockdown. Separated from his regular band, he discovered that collaborating on the track remotely was an unorthodox creative method given the live energy that's usually key to their work together.

As fierce as the changeable weather itself, the ethereal tones of Serbian-Canadian musician Dana Gavanski can stir a breeze and destroy like a storm

The ominous, fuzzed-out tone of a single guitar note. A foreboding piano line. Esther Swift's haunting, intricate harp. All of these combine to devastating effect on Harpy, a dark, swirling tale about facing up to what you've become with unflinching honesty, and the first single taken from Stonehaven musician Fair Mothers' new album. In Monochrome.

Every summer, towns and cities across the UK including Brighton are filled with LGBTQ+ people celebrating Pride, but this year that wasn't going to happen - until now.
