YONAKA Saturday 1st June at Banquet Records, 1:30pm The Brighton quartet YONAKA visit Kingston to play in the shop to celebrate the release of their debut album Don't Wait Til Tomorrow. They were on tour with Bring Me The Horizon last year, don't miss out on catching them in-store at this exciting time. “We self-produced the entire LP, which features nine news songs and three already released, including the second track we ever wrote, Awake,” she explains. “The album’s title, Don’t Wait ’Til Tomorrow, is a message about reaching out to someone, picking up the phone and making a call; it’s about knowing it’s okay to not be okay. The title-track is a personal favourite of mine. We can’t wait to release the album and we hope it resonates with our fans as much as it does with us.” Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Don't Wait 'Til Tomorrow from us. Albums and tickets for collection at our shop on the day of the in-store. Please bring your order number with you. CD | LP
Idlewild Sunday 25th August at Banquet Records, 1:30pm With their new full length album out now, Idlewild play an acoustic set in the shop in August. Following on from 2015's Everything Ever Written, the wonderful Scottish rockers bring their eighth full length Interview Music. “A lot of the songs are about dreams and dreaming and the thoughts and ideas that come from this state,” says Woomble. I live in the Scottish Highlands, and between there and California you’ve got two locations that can put you in a dream like state - driving down Sunset Boulevard as the sun sets or driving over the remote Ardnamurchan peninsula as the sun rises. The world seems unreal, magical. You’re dreaming through a landscape.” In-store Grade A. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Interview Music from us. Tickets are for collection in the shop on the day of the in-store, please bring your order number with you. Albums will be posted unless you select 'Collect in shop' when checking out. CD | LP
