DEAD KENNEDYS TO HEADLINE 'THE EARACHE FACTORY' AT BOOMTOWN FAIR 2018

Boomtown have just announced Californian punk icons DEAD KENNEDYS as Friday night headliners for The Earache Factory.  Previously booked in this slot was NAPALM DEATH who were forced to cancel after being offered support to SLAYER on their final ever tour around the USA.

The Earache Factory is a completely new venue at Boomtown and is curated by the legendary independent label Earache Records.  Earache has issued over 600 releases since its inception in 1987 and built its reputation on extreme music and a punk attitude.

Located in the heart of Diss-order Alley, the lineup will feature some of the best in metal, punk, rock, grindcore, stoner and pysch, ranging from world famous artists to the hottest new heavy bands on the scene.  Other acts include Max Cavalera's heavy-as-fuck Brazilian tribal metal band SOULFLY, New Jersey's wild political hip-hop punk duo HO99O9, straight-edge vegan cult favourites EARTH CRISIS, and angry anti-austerity Bristolian punk outfit IDLES - just a handful of what can be found at this new intimate venue.

Lak Mitchell, Boomtown Founder, comments: "We're seriously excited about expanding on the heavy live music side of the festival... The first event I ever put on was a heavy metal gig when I was 16 and have been in various thrash/punk/metal bands ever since, so to represent such an amazing musical culture within the context of Boomtown is insanely exciting and I can't wait to see where this takes us."

Boomtown's multidimensional world not only provides some of the best in underground and global music but incorporates it with some of the most unexpected and immersive theatre.  As part of Boomtown's ever-evolving storyline, Diss-order Alley is themed around a military base that has been abandoned and overtaken by an autonomous community of punks.  Attendees are encouraged to embrace their inner characters and immerse themselves in the intricately designed venues populated by walkabout performers weaving their way through the city's streets.

Earache Records' Head of Live Music, Tom Hadfield comments: "Boomtown Fair is one of the most unique and thriving festivals in the UK and it's a privilege to be a part of it for Chapter 10.  Much like Earache Records, Boomtown is fiercely independent and we respect that enormously.  We are on a mission to bring heavy music to the masses and big credit goes to everyone at Boomtown for welcoming us with open arms.  All the bands we have booked are heavy in one way or another, but a common theme is that they are all bands with a purpose, bands that mean something and bands that are fighting for positive change in this world.  Bring your earplugs."

Boomtown Fair Chapter 10 will take place at Matterley Estate just outside Winchester from August 9th to August 12th, 2018.  Click here <http://www.boomtownfair.co.uk> to buy tickets to the festival.

Alongside "Under No Illusion", 'Full Nelson' also features a new version of "Back to the Stack" - the band's tribute to legendary STATUS QUO rocker Rick Parfitt - as well as the future single "Robot (Trust in Me)", for which the band worked with famed BLACK SABBATH and JUDAS PRIEST engineer Mike Exeter.

HAGGARD CAT RELEASE NEW SONG AND MUSIC VIDEO "BAD NEWS (TRAVELS FAST)"

Taken from their forthcoming album 'Challenger'
Due out 20th April on Earache Records
Pre-order: http://webstore.earache.com/haggard-cat
UK tour dates in April/May announced


Nottingham duo HAGGARD CAT have revealed a new music video for a brand new track from their forthcoming album 'Challenger', which is set for release 20th April via Earache Records.

"'Bad News (Travels Fast)' was one of the first songs we wrote for 'Challenger'," says vocalist and guitarist Matt Reynolds.  "It's also one of our live favourites.  It's about Chinese whispers and our tendency to fascinate on the negative.  Bad news travels fast; rise above it and focus on other things."

Watch the video for "Bad News (Travels Fast)" now here <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnOF2y6AnR8>.

The riff-rolling track "Bad News (Travels Fast)" is the latest in a series of high-octane tracks to be revealed from 'Challenger', with "American Graffiti", "Bone Shaker" and "The Patriot" already proving HAGGARD CAT's chops and whetting our appetite for the full length.  These killer tracks have been enjoying national airplay on BBC Radio 1's Rock Show and BBC Introducing, as well as playlisting at Kerrang! TV and a coveted spot as Kerrang! Radio's Fresh Blood Track of the Week.

Pre-order 'Challenger' now here <http://smarturl.it/Haggard-Cat>.

The 'Challenger UK Tour' kicks off shortly after the album's release and will see them play 12 shows up and down the country in April and May with in-store appearances and festival slots also plotted.  HAGGARD CAT's live presence and prowess is like no other and they are not to be missed.

New Album 'A Deeper Cut' Storms into UK Charts
Band on Tour Now in Europe


British rock and rollers THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have released an exclusive live performance video of their song "Built-In Forgetter", which was recorded at a recent YouTube session in London.  Watch the video now here <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C-w2gyS4-c>.

The track is taken from the band's brand new studio album, 'A Deeper Cut', which stormed into the Official UK Albums Chart at No. 6, as well as taking top spot in the Indie, Rock, and Vinyl charts.

Following a whirlwind few years in which they released multiple Top 20 albums, toured around the world and shared the stage with rock megastars THE ROLLING STONES, THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT are finally back, having been hard at work behind the scenes preparing for an even bigger year in 2018.  'A Deeper Cut' features 12 brand new songs which draw on the band's recent experiences and showcase their ever-improving songwriting abilities.

'A Deeper Cut' is available now on limited edition signed digipak CD, regular digipak CD, vinyl, and digital formats here <http://smarturl.it/TTM-A-Deeper-Cut>.

THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT also released the first official music video from the album recently, for the single "Caught in the Middle".  The video was directed by the legendary Charlie Lightening (Paul McCartney, Liam Gallagher, BEADY EYE, JAMIROQUAI) and was filmed in one shot at the legendary RAK Studios.  See the video here <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMTDrY4lTDo>.

GREEN DRUID: WATCH MIND-MELTING NEW VISUALS FOR THE DOOM-LADEN "RITUAL SACRIFICE"

Winner of 'Best Metal Band' at 303 Magazine Awards
Debut Album 'Ashen Blood' Out Now


Hailing from the land of Denver, Colorado - the first US city to legalise marijuana - GREEN DRUID worships at the feet of the monolithic amplifier, and performs holy communion with the tremorous onslaught of murky tones that emanate from its maw.

Full screen it, turn the lights down, sit back and get a lungful of "Ritual Sacrifice" here <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntRA_dtCcq0>.

"Ritual Sacrifice" is taken from GREEN DRUID's debut album, 'Ashen Blood', which was released on March 16th and features over an hour of THC-laced, mind-altering doom.  Get the album now on CD or vinyl here <http://www.earache.com/greendruid> or pick up the album on iTunes here <http://bit.ly/ashenblood-itunes>.
