Beautiful, bizarre, and brazen sonic seductress and violinist extraordinaire, EMILIE AUTUMN wants you to fight alongside her on next year’s “Fight Like A Girl” tour. Known for her eccentric style and prodigious musical talent (she began reading notes before learning the alphabet and was already playing violin at four years old), Emilie spent her youth playing concert halls throughout the U.S. and Europe as a classical violinist before going mad, landing herself in an insane asylum and emerging as a rock singer with a murderous streak.

Taking its name from the title track and first single of her forthcoming album due out this ? the follow-up to her groundbreaking debut, “Opheliac”, the Emilie starts her European tour in Scotland on the 9th March, ending in Manchester on April 14th.

Each show promises to be an experience. With a theatrical thread, a little classical flare, and the right dose of dirty rock ‘n’ roll attitude, the “Fight Like A Girl” tour will undoubtedly be EMILIE’s most memorable run yet. If you’re one of her affectionately dubbed “Plague Rats” or among the uninitiated, this is a sexy spectacle that’s not to be missed. Beyond her violin virtuosity on stage, she elegantly strikes that effervescent balance between sex, violence, and English literature. Part Broadway, part burlesque, part rock concert, part history lesson, there’s nothing quite like it anywhere…

“It’s more brutal and bloody,” affirms the ringleader with a playful grin. “There’s more girl-on-girl action and glitter. The corsets are even tighter. It’s become Victorian Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It’s a rollercoaster. You’re going to feel like you’ve stepped into a dark Disneyland.”

That experience is propelled by the autobiographical drama at the heart of EMILIE’s intriguing new literary tome, “THE ASYLUM FOR WAYWARD VICTORIAN GIRLS”. Released last year to widespread adoration, elements of the novel’s wickedly dark narrative will be brought to life on stage, and they’re also encapsulated in her new single and battle cry, “Fight Like A Girl”.

Are you ready to join EMILIE in this FIGHT?

ASKING ALEXANDRIA TOUR SELLING OUT FAST

ASKING ALEXANDRIA TOUR SELLING OUT FAST

NORWICH, MANCHESTER & GLASGOW TOTALLY SOLD OUT

UK sensation ASKING ALEXANDRIA’s upcoming headline tour is selling out fast and fans are advised to move quickly if they’d like tickets for the remaining shows. Their biggest UK headline tour to date will see the band play to over 15,000 fans across the country, with tickets for Norwich, Manchester and Glasgow already sold out.

ASKING ALEXANDRIA have been branded as the new bad boys of rock n’ roll by major mainstream media across the world and it’s definitely something the band isn’t shying away from. They play hard and certainly party even harder ushering in a new era of rock decadence. Their latest album Reckless and Relentless, has been unlike anything the metal/hard rock genre has seen in quite some time, debuting at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 charts ad continuing to sell in it’s thousands every week.

The band will be in top shape for the UK dates, having recently undergone a gruelling, life-changing training session with former WWF Superstar The Ultimate Warrior for a new TV show. To get a sneak peak at what to expect check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3oQtmakhtM

METALCAMP 2012 – MACHINE HEAD confirmed!

With their seventh album “Unto The Locust”, MACHINE HEAD have fans and critics from around the globe swarming around them to witness the game-changing aural destruction that they are set to unleash. “‘Locust’ is a metaphor. Locusts fly in a swarm, but they can’t control which direction they fly; they float on the wind, they land, cause massive destruction, and then float away on the wind to leave you in the aftermath. It is is a metaphor for a type of person that sometimes comes into your life and has a similar effect.” says Robb Flynn.


Unlike the titular insect which is prone to flying directionless, unable to control its flight, MACHINE HEAD has been on a steady and well-earned ascent for the better part of a decade. From their recent Grammy nomination to being hand-picked to open for Metallica in both the U.S. and Europe for a six month stretch, MACHINE HEAD’s record sales and tour numbers continue to grow even in the face of a crumbling music business. “It feels like the culmination of what we’ve been doing for the last 17 years: power grooves, patented Machine Head harmonics, crushing guitars and dark melodies, but taken to a new level!” Boy, he is so right.

MACHINE HEAD have become an invincible force which is clearly to be seen when they enter the stage, bound to devastate the entire place. We are very happy to present MACHINE HEAD to you at METALCAMP 2012!

DRIPBACK RELEASE VIDEO FOR “KICK OUT TIME”

LONDON METALLERS DEBUT VIDEO UNLEASHED

London, England December 2012

London Hardcore Metallers DRIPBACK have unleashed their debut video for their song “Kick Out Time”. Shot at the Dewdrop squat in Battersea, the 2:41 beast was shot and directed by Phil Higgins of K-Motion, who interspersed the performance with footage of the London riots earlier this year.

Says Guitarist Luca G-Drax:

“We wrote ‘Kick Out Time’ about the influx of useless drunk fools in city centres who think it’s OK to start trouble with people who dress a little different to them when they leave the pubs at kick out time. When we were younger it was a bigger problem and it still is for a lot of young metal heads these days. If these idiots wanna try and give it to the Dripback boys we say go for it, bring us your attitude and see what happens”

DRIPBACK will open for LOCK UP and THE ROTTED later this month. Catch them at the following shows:

21.12                  Nottingham                 Rescue Rooms

22.12                  London                Camden Underworld

23.12                  Colchester            Arts Centre

Tickets available from http://www.ents24.com/web/artist/160248/Dripback.html
