The First are a melodic rock band from Wisbech, Cambridgeshire with a refreshingly powerful and mature sound. Their instantly memorable choruses, vicious guitar lines and progressive rhythmic patterns blend with The First’s ability to tear up stages to create a blisteringly energetic live show.

After touring the UK and Europe for the last year and a half in support of their debut release Swimming with Sharks; the band return is 2013 with their much-anticipated second album Take Courage. The first two singles from the record, ‘Take It Back’ and ‘Love. Regret. Forgive. Forget’, have already been well received by critics and fans alike.

Second album Take Courage is available to pre-order now from iTunes.

Plus support from ENQUIRY

Born out of the dark dirty depths of the fair city Birmingham with the intentions of making a lot of noise & just being generally quite loud, Enquiry are a powerhouse trio fast gaining reputation as one of the most exciting live acts to come out of the Midlands.

Fusing heavy face melter riffs with aggressive reverb soaked vocals and killer drums in some unholy melting pot, the band have been described as “awe inspiring”, with “a cacophony of riffs” and stated to have “taken the post-hardcore genre and utilised the creativity the genre craves in their well written songs.”

Latest single ‘Image Burn’ is available as a free for download/pay-what-you-want download from their Bandcamp now.
