Bellevue Days Friday 22nd November at Banquet Records, 6:00pm To celebrate the release of their debut album, Bellevue Days play in the shop on the day of its release. The debut full length record from the Croydon based alt-rockers is titled It Can't Possibly Go Wrong Ever, offering up an infectious mix of modern British rock with indie-punk sounds. If you're into the likes of Lower Than Atlantis, Mallory Knox, Deaf Havana or Biffy Clyro then you should definitely check this out. “It seems like the whole world is kinda falling apart in every direction you look, doesn’t it?” vocalist Alan Smith comments. “For me personally, I took a long look at the world around me and I just kinda realised how f*cked up it’s become. I usually try to steer away from politics in music; I ain’t no Bob Dylan (just yet). I find it hard not to put my personal experiences and feelings into songs—from depression, to family issues, to deaths - as that’s usually the only thing I can really go off, but on this record there are a few more stories which I imagine from other people’s points of view, which was an interesting and refreshing perspective.” In-store Grade C, come on down. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of It Can't Possibly Go Wrong Ever from us. All albums + Tickets are for collection in the shop on the day of the event. CD | LP
