1 RISE467-1.png Pup This Place Sucks Ass Banquet exclusive 12" is on 'A-side | B-side - black / cyan / red' coloured vinyl. /300. Indies exclusive 12" is on 'orange w/ mint, magenta + black splatter' coloured vinyl. Here we go! the new EP from one of our favourite punk-rock bands PUP. Following on from their awesome 2019 record Morbid Stuff with another blast of their scuzzy, high-energy, noisy and super anthemic punk-rock tunes. "Yes, that's a real title. It started as a joke that felt like it came true. New song "Rot" out now. No matter your circumstances, this EP is about where you're from and where you're at now. Wherever it is, it def sucks ass." - PUP “Our expectations are so high. Every album we make, we want it to be better than the last,” says Babcock. “But just putting out songs we like and think are fun, that’s also pretty rewarding. Taking a breather from the pressure we put on ourselves has been so positive for us.” Like all of their material, This Place Sucks Assis a document of the band PUP is—at times thoughtful and introspective and at other times wildly cathartic. And they hope that fans will take its sentiments of anger, frustration, and bitterness that run through This Place Sucks Ass and find collective empowerment and joy in turning them outward along with them. “Everything sucks and that’s OK, because it sucks for everybody,” says Babcock. “And we can make it a little bit better by being together in the shittiness.” Rise Records 12" | CD Pre-Order
6 DOVES110221.png Doves Thursday 11th February at Pryzm, 7:00pm PLEASE NOTE: date is subject to change pending government / NIHP guidance around the coronavirus outbreak. If this event is postponed, we will let you know - please do not contact us until a rescheduled date is announced. Once announced, if you cannot make the rescheduled date refunds will be available. - To celebrate the release of the new album album The Universal Want, it''s a first time in Kingston from Doves. It's their first studio album in eleven years and it's going to be quite the opportunity to hear a career spanning set in an intimate venue. Only the second track and first single proper to be revealed, Prisoners forces attention upon itself, not least with the poignancy of Goodwin’s repeated greeting to ‘old friends’, but as an unstoppable, driving tale of caution in a world of unending desire. Produced by Doves with Dan Austin and recorded at the band’s own Frank Bough Sound III studios in North West England, the high heat of its Northern Soul beat is fanned by wiry guitar breaks and cuts of ethereal noise contorting beneath layers of stacked vocals. A statuesque musical statement, Prisoners guides Doves’ second chapter to a peak now within touching distance, the lyrics contrasting to express unease with modern ills. Times TBC but we expect doors at 7:00pm with Doves on stage at 8:00pm CD/ticket is £18 post-paid, and other formats and combos will be available. Pryzm is all ages for this show - under 14s must be accompanied by a ticket-holding adult (18+). Over 18s should bring PHOTO ID (driving license / passport).

8 EE111020XTRA.png Everything Everything / Socially Distanced Show Sunday 11th October at Myu, 5:00pm This is a socially distanced, seated show. Due to the demand, we have added an additional show to take place earlier on. - PLEASE NOTE: date is subject to change pending government / NIHP guidance around the coronavirus outbreak. If this event is postponed, we will let you know - please do not contact us until a rescheduled date is announced. Once announced, if you cannot make the rescheduled date refunds will be available. - Celebrating the release of their new album, Everything Everything return to Kingston for a socially-distanced show at Myu. The fifth full length album from the ever-excellent genre chemists is titled RE-ANIMATOR and has been released to critical acclaim. It's another offering of their thrilling mix of indie-electro-rock with supercharged melodies and harmonies. They've been in Kingston plenty of times but this will be their first at Myu. The band’s approach to ‘Re-Animator’ was to streamline the creative process by focusing on harmonies and melodies over synths and programming. Inspiration came thick and fast: wonderment at the wider world despite the horror of its politics; existentialism and the prolonged, if fading, youthfulness of being in a touring band; and the ominous threat of climate change. All things which contribute to a sense of one door closing while another awaits. --- Times TBC but we expect doors at 5:00pm. Last entry is at 5:30pm, Everything Everything due on stage at 6:00pm All viewing areas are in tables for six. Private tables which accommodate up to 6 people can be purchased, or couples can be seated with one another couple on a 6-person table. Myu is the set up during Social Distancing times in the venue you used to know as Pryzm. This show is 14+. Over 18s should bring PHOTO ID (driving license / passport).
