Rawk Attacks! presents a night of screeching-misantropic-guitar-smashing-ear-bleeding-dystopian musical disobedience! Bringing together four of the most exciting and aggressive rock acts that the South West has to offer:
Loci, Roit:Noise, New State Radio & Sheafson
Venue: The Junction, Bristol
Date: 15th September
Loci wield music writhing with energy and intent. Violent angst-fuelled rock offset by dreamy shoegazing; a sound that ambushes the listener with both brute force and siren-like seduction.
Touring the country Loci have racked up over eighty shows of frenzied acrobatics, bruises, crushed instruments and applause – a provocative and unpredictable band that thrives on performing live. This is music with edge, with dark intelligence and a sarcastic smile.
“Visually captivating; admirable, aggressive; with a sound as tight as a fish’s ass!” Bristol Rocks
“Sexy, charged… angry-introspection.” BBC Wales
“One of the rawest sounding bands to tear out of your stereos in a long while. Loci produce songs that leave you breathless and exhausted.” UK Music Search
“A bigger sound than your average Polyphonic Spree sized outfit.” Decode Magazine
Riot:noise deliver aggressive adrenaline-pumping rock straight to the vein. The musical equivalent of civil disorder Riot:Noise push the valves with their intense strain of hard-edged rock. Spread the word, a RIOT is coming.
New State Radio:
White-noise for the disenfranchised: New State Radio describe themselves as the by-product of a collision of musical forces and socialist opinions. Passionate political beliefs coupled with powerful, diverse musicianship - a captivating live performance not to be missed.
"A raw, energetic sound... so good to hear a young band with something to say" Patrick Jones, Welsh Author/Poet
"Climactic choruses rise up from grunge indie pop songs - you can't help but admire New State Radio" BBC Wales
Intelligent, epic rock from Bristol based trio Sheafson – the self-proclaimed future of rock. Sheafson mix post-hard core assaults with a penchant for soundscapes. Taking a break from recording their debut album, Sheafson will be unveiling brand new material and releasing the pent up energy of months locked in recording isolation.
