Tipped as one of the new bands to keep a serious eye on this year, this classic rock outfit have already proved themselves worthy of sussed early attention by packing out Water Rats Theatre at the end of last year. They return as part of their UK tour.
Magnetising a following with powerful songs and stage prescence, they started this year deservedly tipped in various publications. Their magnificent debut album, The Path To The Silent Country, is making music fans sit up and take notice. "When the movers and shakers of our fickle business compile their now obligatory year end 'Top 20's' of favourite whatever's, and this record isn't mentioned in at least 40% of the "Best Album" categories then it'll be a shocking oversight and a questionable vote of no confidence in their musical judgement! This album really is THAT GOOD!" notes New Music Scotland this month.
It's not just the incredible songwriting. Their intense passion live, and the asbo-choirboy vocals of Michael Nebraska all help win such staunch supporters. Favourably compared to The Smiths, the Manics, Afghan Whigs and more, Nebraska are, and always have been, a self-funded, self-realised DIY band with an absolute dedication to music and a belief in honesty and soul over fashion and trend. ‘A Stunning debut…surely destined for greatness’ Artrocker Magazine.
"Imagine a band of glamourous future-punks playing to a crowd of aliens on a distant planet with hot replicant girls striking robotic poses amidst the flash of a strobe light in a neon-lit underworld of uber-cool cbernetic ecstacy. This sounds like the best sex you've ever had." (Salvo Magazine)
Deathstar Preview fuse rock and dance energy. "We love guitars, we love electronica, we love big beats" they recently told DJ Magazine. (Guitarist Rex Bowden ran a progressive house/electronica club that attracted some of the country's top DJs). This band's on stage dynamism has already incited a stage invasion or two.
