Entry subject to capacity, SXSW Badges and wristbands get priority.
Fuzz-drenched, instrument-swapping, ultimate DIY trio from Manchester and Oxford, carrying echoes of underground '90s alternative. After releasing their debut single via Too Pure Singles Club and opening for The Garden and Bob Mould (Hüsker Dü) last year, they arrive in Austin on the back of guttural, politically charged new single 'Not My Fault'.
Based in Leeds, UK, Fizzy Blood have shed any traces of the generic with their own brand of retro-inspired rock. Blending rotten grunge with alien melodies and hooks, Fizzy Blood’s effervescent rock ‘n’ roll froths with a vicious urgency, as demonstrated at their appearances at Download Festival, SXSW and Korea's Zandari Festa.
Chain Of Flowers
Chain of Flowers from Cardiff, Wales have drawn highly favourable comparisons to The Smiths, Chameleons, Eagulls and The Cure since their inception in 2012. Their first full length was released to great acclaim in October 2015 on Alter in the UK and their first EP is due out this Spring.
Like projectile missiles discharged from the Welsh Valleys, The Sandinistas are a heady young mix of punk and new wave rock and roll. Boldly taking their influence from greats like The Clash and Green Day, they are all about the classic three-minute song, and their debut high energy single, Ready To Blow, leaves you breathless. Their anger and attitude makes a resounding statement to the world, that needs to be heard.
Hull natives LIFE are an aggressive, politically charged four-piece who have recently supported Slaves. A no nonsense, band that sticks two fingers up to the alt-right movement and the new world order.
