King Canute
A rock band you can dance to!
There’s a fire in the belly of singing bassist Jon “JC” Lett, whose visceral lyrics and punk vocal stylings are bathed in sing-a-long melodies that you will be humming for weeks. Backed by the relentless drumming powerhouse that Jack “Gump” Summerfield brings to the duo, you’ll be hard pushed not to be bowled over by the fist pumping anthems that these two provide.
“There’s an honesty and intensity to these songs, hidden behind the power of the amps and those drum hits.” says Jon. “I believe you can be more honest through the music than anything you can express in worlds alone.”
“The songs may sound very negative and angry in their lyrical content, but actually they are relentlessly optimistic” adds Jack. “It was important to us to stay true to the heart of the song, while keeping it catchy enough that we were actually singing in in our sleep.”
King Canute are set to release their debut double A-sided single featuring the catchy as hell “Necessary Evil”, an anthemic ode to drug addiction, and “Live Like We’re Dead” the raunchy fist-pumping epic.
The duo, from Guildford, are now stunning critics across the board to prove that two, in fact is the magic number...
Available through In At The Eye Records from February 25th 2013, via iTunes, Amazon, 7 Digital, Spotify and all other digital retailers.
Live dates:
March 9th - The O2 Academy, Birmingham
March 28th - The Cave, The Holly Tree, Kingston upon Thames
April 26th - The Commie, Guildford.

Isolated Atoms release there brand new single Hold On in April.

Now and again we work with a band who we think have the potent ional to be a huge act. We think Isolated Atoms are just that. U2 of the 80's with the same flame burning in their music.

What ever happened to the rock star?

Isolated Atoms arrive on the UK musical radar playing epic, gutsy rock and roll that is built for the big stage. These Atoms are ready to spark with their stunning

It's Another Day... and tenek's ...got something to say...
Available from Monday 11th of March, to coincide with their tour with Republica (*see website for details -> http://www.tenek.info/). ‘Another Day’ EP brings us brand new material from tenek for 2013!! Available on CD and download from all popular online stores.
It features the title track "Another Day (Radio Edit)", along with an alternate version for the dance-floor remixed by Airwolf One / aka Alberto Trevisan), both tracks immediately grab the attention of the listener!
Then there's the epic "A New Foundation”, which offers a darker and perhaps more mature sound for tenek. Besides all this there is a bonus, remixed 2013 version of one of their most popular tracks, "Elusive", originally from their "EP2" release in 2011. All of these serve to remind us of how great tenek's song writing continues to push new creative envelopes, as well as their thirst to try new ideas as their musical career expands into new directions.
Sept 2007 saw tenek release their first EP, and since then, with each new recording the band continued to grow both musically and in the live arena where they have gained a substantial worldwide fan-base. ‘Another Day’ is another brilliant example of how tenek can create a new vibe with their music, yet manage to retain the core tenek sound that everyone has grown to love.
‘Another Day’ EP offers a mere tease of what is to come from tenek's forthcoming 3rd album!!
Come and see them live on the Republica (UK) tour this March 2013 and in October on the De/Vision “25 Years Best Of Tour 2013” (Germany).

Released April 1st 2013
Republica dominated the charts in the Nineties and are exploding back into 2013 with a new EP, UK tour and festival slots. The band's iconic and fiery frontwoman, Saffron, Tim Dorney (keyboard), Johnny Male (guitar) and Conor Lawrence (drums) rode the Britpop wave of female-fronted rock bands like Sleeper, Elastica, Garbage and Lush, injecting it with their self-dubbed "techno-pop, punk rock" sound.
Between 1996 and 1999, Republica sold an incredible 3 million albums and clinched Top 5 slots in the UK, America and Europe with platinum sales across the globe, while their hit single Ready to Go soared to Number One in 18 countries. And the band is returning to the scene with the release of their eagerly-awaited single and EP in March, which will be supported by a UK tour across the following venues:
- Thursday 14 March: Garage, London
- Friday 15 March: Fibbers, York
- Saturday 16 March: Forum, Tunbridge Wells
- Monday 18 March: Newcastle O2 Academy
- Tuesday 19 March: Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
- Wednesday 20 March: Glasgow Classic Grand
- Thursday 21 March: Nottingham Bodega
- Friday 22 March: Bristol Thekla
- Saturday 23 March: Winchester
Their new material is a welcome return to the gritty, electronica sound which set them apart from fellow Britpop titans, as Saffron explains: "It's been brilliant being back in the studio together with the boys. After touring for years and having side projects and collaborations, it felt really fresh working and recording together again. We all headed to a house in Cornwall, taking the equipment with us and set up a studio. We dug out lots of old keyboards we've collected over the years - even an old analogue modular one that Tim made himself. The first release, 'Christiana Obey' was written with our producer Andy Gray. We've recorded some great new tracks and we're really excited about going out live to perform them. It's all NEW, NEW, NEW!"
Republica will be joining acts including Bon Jovi and The Stone Roses with a slot at The Isle of Wight in June, to share the well-loved tunes that won the hearts of the nation, as well as this exciting, new material.
