Muncie Girls to play Castle & Falcon Birmingham

August 24, 2017 in News

Born in punk shows and dive bars to three driven teenagers in 2012, Muncie Girls embodies the classic punk rock story in a modern context.

Fueled by discontent and anxiety, they eloquently address issues of modern living as a self-aware young adult. The result is an ambitious and poignant rebellion against social norms that touches on everything from politics to interpersonal relationships.

The band released their highly acclaimed debut album From Caplan To Belsize on 4th March, 2016 via Specialist Subject Records in the UK. Musically, the album is a dynamic and emotional exploration of punk and indie rock. The album’s bouncy catchiness is sure to be a hit with fans of Hop AlongLemuriaLatterman, and RVIVR, but one of the defining characteristics of Muncie Girls is their ability to explore outside their immediate influences.

Ultimately, what sets Muncie Girls apart is vocalist & bassist Lande Hekt’s unique perspective and its impact on her understated lyricism. Hekt’s dry, unembellished writing style is, in many ways, reminiscent of classic American literature – a trait exceptionally unusual for a punk rock band from Exeter.

Tellison & Muncie Girls in Birmingham

March 28, 2016 in News

Tellison is a four-piece waking-nightmare of a band from London, UK. Formed in 2005 out of a shared love of unsuccessful indie rock bands of the late 90s and early 00s, Tellison have released three albums (2007′s Contact! Contact!, 2011′s The Wages of Fear and 2015′s Hope Fading Nightly) and a clutch of sold-out singles.

They write imperfect songs about hope, loss, love and literature. Lead single ‘Say Silence’ from 2011′s sophomore album The Wages of Fear somehow managed to reference Shakespeare, Jacques Lacan, Bill Murray, Wes Anderson, John Donne and Tarantino in the same breath – not a huge number of people noticed.

Undaunted, with the release of Hope Fading Nightly, album number three, on September 18th 2015 through Alcopop Records, the band are currently dusting off their guitars and referencing conventions and stepping up to take another swing at, if not the big time, at least the medium time.
