OTHERKIN – ANNOUNCE SEPTEMBER UK TOUR DATES

schedule Past event
OTHERKIN RELEASE NEW SINGLE “ON & ON” LISTEN HERE ANNOUNCE SEPTEMBER UK TOUR DATES   Buoyed by the success of ‘All That Remains Won’t Be the Same’, Irish alternative rock band OTHERKIN increase speed with the release of ‘On & On’. The band say: ‘We were listening to a ton of French House before making ‘On & On’ and felt inspired to make a song for the dance floor. As we were approaching it from the context of being a guitar band, we thought it would be cool to break the song up with a huge riff, bringing the two worlds together. We paired it with a story of a guy we know who’s a conniving, scheming weasel that’ll never change his ways, regardless of what happens to him.  This song is like one fist in the air and one middle finger in the air to him.’ Produced and mixed by Jolyon Thomas (Slaves, Royal Blood), ‘On & On’ is the third banger-on-the-bounce from the band this year. ‘All That Remains’ enjoyed evening airplay support from BBC Radio 1, daytime spins in their homeland and unprecedented levels of playlist support from all the main streaming platforms. Following an exciting Electrowerkz show in London, Otherkin are excited to be heading back out on the road in the UK this September. Catch them live at the following venues: 19th – Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds 20th – The Basement, York 21st – Think Tank? Underground, Newcastle 22nd – Nice N Sleazy, Glasgow 23rd – The Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham 24th – Clwb Ifor Bach,…

CREED BRATTON * STAR OF “THE OFFICE” (US) * ANNOUNCES UK SHOWS THIS SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER CREED BRATTON – Actor, musician and star of The Office (US) will be touring the UK this Autumn. Dates as follows: 22nd Sept – The Fleece – Bristol 23rd Sept – The Deaf Institute – Manchester 24th Sept – Stereo – Glasgow 26th Sept – Engine Rooms – Southampton 28th Sept – Bush Hall – London 29th Sept – The Globe – Cardiff 1st Oct – The Mill – Birmingham 2nd Oct – Brudenell Social Club – Leeds Mysterious, eccentric, good-hearted, and downright talented are all words that have been used to describe actor and musician Creed Bratton over the years. Creed may be best known for starring as a fictional version of himself on nine seasons of the award winning, critically acclaimed NBC series “The Office.” For nearly eight years fans worldwide grew to love him as Dunder Mifflin’s quality assurance director who unapologetically forgets the names of his own co-workers, and says bizarre confusing statements on a regular basis. If Creed was onscreen, laughs were sure to follow. While Creed may be best known for his on-screen antics, he is also an established musician with a career in music that spans nearly five decades, and he isn’t slowing down anytime soon. This year Creed is slated to release his 7th full-length album entitled “While the Young Punks Dance,” featuring 10 brand new tracks. The album, produced by Dave Way (Sheryl Crow, Fiona Apple) and Dillon O’Brian, will be available wherever digital downloads…
