The Alchemy ( LP Release Show) / Evade Escape / First Family
The Alchemy ( Chemical Day Dream LP Release Show)
Are a thrilling new British rock band, crafting catchy and anthemic songs from a subconscious blend of the Rock, Indie and Electronic musical landscape they grew up in.
Formed in Canterbury in 2015, the quartet released their début EP in April 2016. Modern
Age was well received by UK Independent press, Radio and Music TV and laid the foundation for the band’s sound: heavy riffs intertwined with undeniable choruses provided by the rare talent of vocalist Rhys Taylor.
The videos for Modern Age and follow up single Black Hole Passenger were both play listed on Scuzz TV, while an unreleased 3rd track, Save Me From Myself has racked up over 100,000 plays on YouTube.
Support slots with UK compatriots Mallory Knox, London-based Kiwi rockers I Am Giant and celebrated German alt-prog band The Intersphere showed that The Alchemy could more than hold their own on the larger stages and in front of the increased crowds provided by those opportunities.
During a particularly rapturous performance with I Am Giant at the Camden Assembly in 2016, the band caught the eye and ear of I Am Giant bassist Paul Matthews. A London based producer with a string of gold and platinum selling records in New Zealand to his
credit, Matthews saw something special in The Alchemy.
“The band was just awesome,” he recalls. “Talented musicians, and the lead singer Rhys has an excellent, unique voice. I saw so much potential - I just had to work with these guys!”
Evade Escape (Venue Debut)
are a five piece alternative rock band hailing from Birmingham, U.K. They bring to the table massive riffs, packed with huge melodies and infectious hooks.
The band formed at the end of 2018, rising from the ashes of previously established acts. They take a wealth of experience from touring and playing shows with the likes of Fort Hope, Mallory Knox and We Are The Ocean, alongside playing Glastonbury and other well-known festivals.
Hearty Indie Rock with great riffs and clever lyricism.
You might remember them as Underground Heroes, a band that quite literally tore through venues across the UK and Europe in the late noughties, having toured with the likes of Kasabian, Lily Allen, Kate Nash; appearances at Glastonbury Festival and Ibiza Rocks.
