The Who Friday 14th February at Pryzm To celebrate the release of ‘WHO’ – The Who’s ‘best album since 1975….’ The Who announce they will play their smallest live show in over 40 years! The date is set to mark 50 years to the day of their historic Live at Leeds show – 14 Feb 2020. This is a never to be repeated intimate acoustic show. "This album is almost all new songs written last year, with just two exceptions... There is no theme, no concept, no story, just a set of songs that I (and my brother Simon) wrote to give Roger Daltrey some inspiration, challenges and scope for his newly revived singing voice... Roger and I are both old men now, by any measure, so I’ve tried to stay away from romance, but also from nostalgia if I can. I didn’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Memories are okay, and some of the songs refer to the explosive state of things today." - Pete Townshend Times TBC but we expect doors at 7:00pm and The Who at 8:00pm.

Twin Atlantic Thursday 23rd January at New Slang, 9:00pm (18+) The night before their new album is released, Twin Atlantic return to New Slang. The new full length album from the awesome Scottish alt-rockers follows on from 2016's critically acclaimed GLA. Lead single Novocaine shows that they've experimented with some more electronic-based sounds, we're super excited to hear this in full and witness their powerful and anthemic rock songs live again. "The album is inspired by colours, moods, memories. We just got into a room and started creating. The studio as its own instrument reached a new level - we created nothing outside those walls and it became a physical embodiment of the album itself. Power is our own example that there's always a way forward when you are faced with limitations and red lights. It's reignited our ambition and drive for what we can achieve. Hearing these songs, that's what I feel and hear: power." "And that's what the last two years have made us feel as a band: totally empowered." Times TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with Twin Atlantic on stage at 10:30pm After the show, the New Noise DJs will be taking over for a bit where you can expect to hear the likes of Enter Shikari, Deaf Havana, Lower Than Atlantis, Paramore, My Chemical Romance, Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco, Jimmy Eat World, You me At Six and much more. Then we'll transition into usual sounds of New Slang where you can expect to hear the likes of The Cribs, Catfish & The Bottlemen, The 1975, Wolf Alice and many more until 2AM.

Loathe I Let It In And It Took Everything Hold tight for our pre-order, for now just click the Notify me button. Expected release day is 7th February. The hugely anticipated second full length album from the Liverpool-based LOATHE. Mixing up a massive range of influences to create a distorted, pummelling and melodic frenzy of visceral metal. Fans of Deftones, Lotus Eater, Code Orange and Glassjaw should check this out. “It is our pleasure to finally, after what may seem like a lifetime, reveal to the world our latest collective effort I Let It In And It Took Everything,” says the band. “An accumulation of passion, dedication, and love. Please listen closely and enjoy.” LOATHE's new material sees some of their most esoteric and experimental moments yet; winding from brutally unrelenting heaviness, to weighty post-metal and ethereal post-rock. 1.
