5 NSTA300519.png The Amazons / New Slang Thursday 30th May at New Slang, 9:00pm (18+) Just after the release of their new album, The Amazons play at New Slang. Following on from their incredible 2017 self-titled debut full length, the band are back with their second offering of huge rock 'n' roll tunes with plenty of riffs in the form of Future Dust. We're super excited to hear the new album and their return to New Slang. “We were searching for a heavier sound and we found it by delving back through the blues,” says singer Matthew Thomson. “From Led Zeppelin, we discovered Howlin’ Wolf and immersed ourselves in his back catalogue. I read Hellfire, the Jerry Lee Lewis biography, and fell in love with the Biblical language that was used to describe his ‘devil music’. “As much as the songs, it was the stories and characters that we loved. Playing boogie-woogie piano in murky clubs sounds pretty tame now, but back then, it was raw and dangerous. We wanted to capture that with a dirtier, grittier, sexier sound.” Times TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with The Amazons on at 10:30pm. After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear the likes of Wolf Alice, Circa Waves, Biffy Clyro, The Vaccines, Arctic Monkeys, Catfish & The Bottlemen and many more until 2AM. CD/ticket is £14 post-paid, and other formats and combos will be available. New Slang is an over 18s event, and is strict on ID. Please bring photo ID with you on the night, whatever age you are.

7 NSHC200619.png Hot Chip / New Slang Thursday 20th June at New Slang, 9:00pm To celebrate the release of their seventh full length album titled A Bath Full Of Ectasy, the acclaimed electronic-indie-poppers Hot Chip return to play at New Slang. A Bath Full of Ecstasy is a fresh, invigorating and essential new chapter in Hot Chip's career, taking in their huge breadth of influence and melody as only Hot Chip can. This is the first time the band have chosen to use outside producers from the offset, working with Philippe Zdar (Cat Power, Beastie Boys, Phoenix, Cassius) and Rodaidh McDonald (The XX, Sampha, David Byrne), and there is a marked dynamism in Zdar’s mixing that brings out the boldness of the songs collected here. The record is a celebration of joy but recognises the struggle it can take to get to that point of happiness. You can hear the pleasure Hot Chip had in creating this album and they want to pass on that feeling to the listener. It is time to get lost in A Bath Full of Ecstasy. Times TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with Hot Chip on at 10:30pm. After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear the likes of The 1975, CHVRCHES, Arctic Monkeys, White Lies, FOALS and many more until 2AM. CD/ticket is £17 post-paid, and other formats and combos will be available. New Slang is an over 18s event, and is strict on ID. Please bring photo ID with you on the night, whatever age you are.
