Mayday Parade Wednesday 6th June at Banquet Records, 6:00pm Tickets for collection at our shop on the evening of the in-store. Please bring your order number with you. Albums will be posted. Just before the release of their new album, Mayday Parade return to Kingston. The awesome and adored pop-punk / emo-rockers are returning with their sixth full length album titled Sunnyland and their first signed to Rise Records. They're a huge and influential band that have been going for enough time to prove that they always deliver towering pop-fuelled smashers. We're super excited to have them back in the shop for an intimate set. The album’s title comes from an abandoned hospital where the band members hung out as teenagers. “The hospital shut down sometime in the mid-’80s but then it just stayed there for decades,” says Sanders. “It was a super-creepy place—it was overgrown with vines, and still had some of the hospital beds and IV stands—but we have all these good memories of hanging out there when we were younger.” In-store Grade A. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Sunnyland from us. CD | LP
Peace Thursday 14th June at Banquet Records Following the release of their new album, Peace return to Kingston. The third full length album from adored indie-poppers Peace is titled Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll, seeing the band push their ever-evolving and fantastic songwriting. They've been in Kingston a couple of times before and we're super excited to have them back. The songs seem to embrace an acceptance that not everyone can be happy, all of the time: “There’s a weird duality I haven't really understood yet. A yin and yang, light and shade. To make a record that was wholly positive wouldn't really be a fair representation of me, or anyone. Everyone has things about themselves that are darker, confusing, and not necessarily positive. There’s definitely no Instagram filter on this album.” 6pm under 18s - tickets are for collection at our shop. Please bring your order number with you. Times may change, please check back. PLEASE NOTE: If you choose Collect In-store as your delivery option at checkout your full order, including tickets, will need to be collected from our shop rather than from the venue. CD | LP
