We’re very pleased to be presenting a special double-headliner from FREELANCE WHALES and BROKEN RECORDS

FREELANCE WHALES the band take their name from lead singer Judah Dadone’s upbringing in Jerusalem and a near-drowning experience in the Sea of Galilee, which is also the influence for many songs. Sporting an array of instruments, including banjo, harmonium, synthesisers and glockenspiel, the band create neatly constructed melodies with a sound heavily influenced by The Postal Service and the indie-folk of Sufjan Stevens, crafting songs with interlocking rhythmic patterns, lush textural layering, and an engaged group-vocal energy. Their crackling harmonies, occasional computer beats and baroque-pop arrangements should also prove irresistible to people with soft spots for the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Lambchop.

Critically acclaimed Scottish outfit BROKEN RECORDS have been described by The Guardian as “…the UK’s answer to Arcade Fire”, and having recently supported The National, they’ve built up a fervent live fan-base who can often be found mouthing the words to every song.

The newly announced tour heralds a change in line-up for Broken Records as Craig Ross joins the band on bass guitar, replacing Gill who, along with Arne, who has now left. Poetic frontman Jamie Sutherland embraced the new addition saying, “having Craig on board signals a new chapter for Broken Records. We can’t wait to get back on the road!”.

Broken Records release their second studio album Let Me Come Home on October 25th. This will precede both the UK tour and the release of the first single to come from the new album, A Darkness Rises Up, on October 18th.

“One of the country’s most exciting new bands” – NME “How Nirvana might sound had they formed in Belarus instead of Seattle” – Q

“Another cracking album.” The Fly

“they simply astound, offering convincing evidence that they could be the UK’s answer to Arcade Fire – purveyors of an epic, swirling, joyfully mysterious music…with a warmth and heart the Canadian band somehow lack” – The Guardian

“Utterly unique” – Clash

Marcus Foster is a British singer/songwriter and with his bluesy, unplugged vocal style is often compared to artists like Damien Rice. His style is unique and when live, he often silences audiences with his powerful voice which at times can be raw and rocky but when needed, he softens it which is seen to be one of his most promising features as a solo singer. Foster has a classically elegant poetic way of writing meaning his lyrics are able to connect with the audience on a deep intimate level. Along with his lyrics his front guitar tapping provides every song with a catchy bass rhythm that helps connect the melody and the soulfulness of his lyrics perfectly.
