SPINN+ THE ASSIST

After the release of their self-titled debut album, SPINN have announced a new UK tour off the back of their biggest tour to date.

The band have gained support from Spotify, Radio One, Dork Magazine, Line of Best Fit, and a host of other blogs. Their back catalogue has had over five million streams across Spotify having garnered choice placements in playlists like New Music Friday UK, The Indie List and being on the cover of Hot New Bands twice.

Known for their youthful sound, the band have seen a clear progression in their fanbase gaining fans of music young and old. Their live shows have become something of a talking point with Louis O’Reilly and Sean McLachlan’s tight knit rhythm section offering a solid backbone to Andy Power’s swirling guitars, and Johnny Quinn’s trademark dance moves.

Having released their debut album, a busy summer of festivals, and now this UK tour in hand, 2019 is set to be SPINN‘s year.

Line Of Best Fit: “SPINN channel an array of Northern bands in to an amalgam that feels both classic and contemporary, optimistic and introspective, and at times, wistfully melancholic.” -8.5/10

After a year away, Birmingham band The Assist are back. Ever since forming in 2014, The Assist have had their finger on the pulse of how the modern generation consume music, soaking their soaring indie anthems with hip-hop inflected beats, dance-tinged rhythms and blistering breakdowns. It’s this eclectic adventurism that has seen The Assist sell out venues across Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield as well as share the stage with the likes of Happy Mondays and Blossoms, play in Paris, France with Black Honey and tour across the UK with The Twang last Christmas, supporting them on seven dates. Most recently, the four-piece completed a six-date tour across Russia as part of a cultural programme with the British Embassy. The ‘Urals tour’ including headlining Boris Yeltsin Open Air at the Ural Night Music Festival performing in front of over 12,000 people. The quartet also headlined two festivals this summer, Rock The Beacon and The Smirnoff stage at Tramlines Festival, Sheffield.
