To celebrate the release of their new album, Mystery Jets return to New Slang.
The sixth full length from the amazing indie-rockers is titled A Billion Heartbeats and sees the band leaning towards politically driven themes, whilst still retaining their infectious and melodic anthems. They're certainly no strangers to Banquet and we're super excited to share this moment with them.
All great albums start from a unique perspective. But try a window on the Strand, in an abandoned office block, overlooking the kind of political upheaval London hasn't seen in a generation. Blaine Harrison was living as a property guardian right around the corner from Trafalgar Square when he found himself witness to an entire year of protests. Every weekend from January 2017 on, people were marching for a different cause: "In the space of six months it was Black Lives Matter, the huge ‘Our NHS' march, Unite for Europe," he recalls. "Then the solidarity sleep-out organised by Help Refugees, where we slept in Whitehall for the night... The protestors would wake me up in the morning. I'd just walk down and join in."
TImes TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with the band on at 10:30pm
After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear songs from the likes of FOALS, The 1975, Everything Everything, The Vaccines, Wolf Alice, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Maccabees and many more until 2AM.
CD/ticket is £16 post-paid, and other formats and combos are available.
New Slang is an over 18s event, and is strict on ID. Please bring photo ID with you on the night, whatever age you are.
New Slang is held at Pryzm, 154 Clarence St, Kingston upon Thames KT1 1QP
