It remains 14+ An additional show has been announced - details here Just after the release of his new EP, YUNGBLUD visits Kingston to play at Pryzm on the Intimate As Fuck tour. YUNGBLUD has been rapidly making a name for himself, the critically acclaimed artist's new release is titled The Underrated Youth EP, offering another dose of his huge and high-octane fuelled punk-rock-hip-hop styled tunes. We've heard plenty of times just how special and energetic his live shows are and we can't wait for this. “I wanted this project to amplify a world that is consumed with unjustified hate. A world, where the common denominator of my generation is the fight for hope, unity and the deep desire for equality. Our ideologies are colliding head on with the hate around us, but we are beating it with a bouquet of fucking flowers! I wrote this project about the people I’ve met around the world, the stories I’ve heard and the journeys, that went on inside my own head. The video was shot in Bulgaria with the most incredible young people. They helped me tell this story. They made this video what it is. Thank you.” 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).

7 NSB060619.png Bastille / New Slang Thursday 6th June at New Slang, 9:00pm To celebrate the release of their hugely anticipated third full length album, the wonderful Bastille return to Kingston to play at New Slang. Following on from 2016's Wild World, the unique, cinematic and electric-fuelled indie-pop quartet bring Doom Days. We're super excited to hear another offering of their huge music and live shows. The new album captures the need to temporarily switch off and escape whilst taking the listener on a big night out in search of distraction from the surrounding apocalypse; be that screaming along to the radio in the back of an Uber careering through the city (the electric Quarter Past Midnight), getting loved up in the company of good friends (future classic 4AM), a casual hook-up (Another Place) or the end-of-night longing to be with somebody (the captivating Those Nights). It revels in the bad decisions we make both personally in our relationships and collectively on a macro scale (Bad Decisions), tells a relatable tale of being cornered into a deep discussion about the world’s problems when all you want to do is have a good time (Million Pieces), and wryly confronts modern anxieties, taking side-swipes at phone addiction, porn addiction, fake news and climate change denial (the uncompromising Doom Days). Times TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with Bastille on at 10:30pm. After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear the likes of CHVRCHES, Biffy Clyro, Catfish & The Bottlemen, The 1975, Arctic Monkeys, Two Door Cinema Club and many more until 2AM. CD/ticket is £20 post-paid, and other formats and combos are available. Tickets are not transferable.

Thelead booker will need photo ID matching the name on the order to collect the tickets. Tickets can't be collected before 5pm on 7th March and we'll be open until 9pm on the day. Just before the release of her hugely anticipated debut album, Billie Eilish plays an all ages acoustic set at Pryzm.. This acclaimed singer has already done some monumental things and at the age of 17, she wrote, produced and recorded this entire album with her brother Finneas in their childhood home in LA. We can't wait to hear this set of groundbreaking songs in the form of her debut album titled WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and her debut Kingston visit, we're massive fans and this will be super special. Billie Eilish’s meteoric rise to global stardom has been nothing short of phenomenal and arguably unparalleled to date. Since her ‘ocean eyes’ debut, Billie has quietly, yet unapologetically infiltrated the forefront of pop. Thanks to a growing legion of loyal followers across the globe, an EP that has sat in the Billboard Top 200 for more than 18 months now, on the cusp of going Gold in the UK and more than 5 billion combined streams globally, her tours have sold out consecutively around the world.

10 NSTDCC130619.png Two Door Cinema Club / New Slang Thursday 13th June at New Slang, 9:00pm New Slang favourites Two Door Cinema Club make a welcome return to celebrate the release of their fourth album False Alarm. We've been big fans for a long time and we can't wait to hear more of their heart-melting infectious indie-pop. Recorded in sessions between London and LA with producer Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, The Killers), it’s an LP that takes the familiar and twists it, to startling and stimulating effect. Take the distorted boudoir soul of ‘Think’, or ‘So Many People’, which electronically skews classic Chic-style disco guitar, and the multidimensional lounge pop of ‘Break’ which sounds like an AI trying to write a Beatles song. It all makes for a wide-eyed, culture- encompassing leap forward for the band, a record liable to break, ruin and remould pop in 2019. Times TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with Two Door Cinema Club 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, FOALS, Catfish & The Bottlemen and many more until 2AM. CD/ticket is £17 post-paid, and other formats and combos will be available. Tickets are not transferable. To combat touts, customers will be required to give their name when purchasing tickets and will be required to produce photo ID matching that name for entry to the gig.
