This autumn, Nottingham’s notorious live performers Kagoule embark on their first 18 date tour of the UK, giving fans the chance to experience tracks from the critically acclaimed debut album Urth. The album, which charted at #8 in the Official UK Album Vinyl Charts, was joyously received by both fans and the press, including rave reviews in MOJO, Clash, NME, Kerrang!, DiS and RockSound plus an honourable inclusion in the Rough Trade Album Club.

Prior to the UK headline tour, the highly rated three piece will also be heading across the Atlantic for a couple of NYC gigs before taking their unmistakable Alt-Rock sound around mainland Europe including a host of dates supporting Sub Pop grungers METZ.

The band have consistently impressed live, and developed something of a fearsome live reputation having shared stages with acts including The Who, Johnny Marr, Sleaford Mods, The Wytches, Iceage, Sebadoh and Drenge plus a performance at Glastonbury Festival.

Plus opening support HOLLOW PEOPLE

Upcoming indie band Hollow People have been making a lot of noise on the Brummie live scene for the past year. The five teenagers have played at all the main venues including The Flapper, The Oobleck and The Rainbow but the Sunflower Lounge has proved to be their favourite and they are set to grace the basement stage for the fourth time in 12 months.

They recently played two gigs in London but they’re back in their home city for one last show of 2015 before knuckling down to record some new material. The band have known each other from school and cite their influences as The Smiths, Joy Division, Blur, Palma Violets and Foals.
