State Wild at Camden Rocks Presents
Following the recent release of their first new studio album in more than six years, indie-rock pioneers SEBADOH are set to embark on a seven date UK tour this Autumn.
Act Surprised continues the soulful collaboration that’s defined the band since 1991’s Sebadoh III and 1994’s Bakesale. The new batch of songs reaffirms how vital the creative partnership is between members Lou Barlow, Jason Loewenstein, and Bob D’Amico.
When Barlow recently moved back to his home state of Massachusetts following a series of personal changes, he pressed the restart button and, in time, felt the incentive to reach out to Jason and Bob again to reunite and start work on a new album. The trio convened and began recording in their original stomping grounds in Northampton, MA where they first formed back in 1988. Along with producer/sound engineer Justin Pizzoferatto, Sebadoh have delivered one of the best records of their career. Act Surprised is a 15-song collection that’s as dynamic and visceral as anything the band has ever committed to tape.
Touring the US since its release, Sebadoh embark on their European tour this autumn with seven UK live dates from late September to early October.

Healthy Junkies - https://youtu.be/hMfROcrsUNg
Mixing Punk Rock with Grunge, Psychedelic Rock, New Wave, Garage Rock and Goth, add a soupçon of theatre and you have Healthy Junkies. Glamorous yet rebel lead punkster Nina Courson moved to London after she ran away from home to pursue her own rock n roll rite of passage.. Destiny awaited when she found guitarist Phil-Honey-Jones who at the time was in a psychedelic rock - outfit named Nurotica. Phil had left his dysfunctional home as a young lad as well, and the two went on their way seeking solace in the world of music. Naming the band Healthy Junkies, reflecting the mental health epidemic currently spreading like wildfire through the core of the western society.
Rich Ragany And The Digressions - https://youtu.be/Nbm2Ov3YSDc
"...you’re in the capable hands of one of the country’s most engaging frontmen. A unique, hitherto unimaginable combination of David Lee Roth and Greg Dulli, his unpredictable onstage storytelling has become legendary" - Vive Le Rock Magazine
The Creeping Terrors - https://youtu.be/QTv_XRaqXAI
Horror and feminism are the themes in The Creeping Terrors with a dark humour it is a strange mix of post punk/death rock with a RIOT GRRRLS twist. It is very rare to have a band that incorporate horror on a female and feminist point of view. We like to have an aggressive unapologetic sound, fast, short songs and very much full of punk influences. The sound is now getting darker and more sophisticated technically but the shouting and screaming will never end.
Prisoners Of Mother England - https://youtu.be/aa6AQkNGwo8
Alternative Rock/Punk Rock band Prisoners Of Mother England formed in 2015 in West Yorkshire by Bedderz, opened for the likes of Toyah, Hands off Gretel, Newtown Neurotics etc. Bedderz relocated to London town late 2015, 6 months later POME were back playing the London circuit.
Soho Dukes - https://youtu.be/6nhQrJOQah8
SOHO DUKES. They’ve spent a fortune in pubs. They scrub up nicely. They're not as bright as they think they are. The band’s origins can be traced back all the way back to 1982 when Johnny Barracuda (vocals) and 'Bomber' Randon (bass guitar) ambled into the back room of a boozer to make their stage debuts in a band that would eventually become Monterrez and - just five years later – provide the support act (twice!) for Guns N’ Roses at London’s legendary Marquee Club.
Zetra - https://youtu.be/F11K8zoY6Oc
ZETRA gestated in the stifling heatwave of Summer 2018. From behind locked doors and closed curtains, the duo of Adam (guitar and vocal) and Jordan (synthesiser and vocal) began writing songs that explore themes of isolation and introspective darkness. With a sound that subverts the traditional doom metal construct, they balance heavy fuzzed-out guitars with their own brand of sci-fi synthesisers and ethereal shoegaze vocal melody. ZETRA is a view into the abyss, turning an obsession with the blackness of Outer Space into a sound that could only come from the deepest chasms of Earth.
Kaprica - https://soundcloud.com/wearekaprica/enemy-within
Alternative, loud, and bordering a slight progressive vibe not to mention melodic + synth orientated. London/Essex based Kaprica is a group that prefers to let the noise ring out,relentlessly with their own embellished 'wall of sound' formidable tones.
High Viz Jackit Theory - www.facebook.com/highvizjackit
Stoke based punk rotters, fuelled by low cost carbonated beverages and an unquenchable thirst for chaos. An argument in a pub disguised as a band, made up of a shirtless recovering poet, a roadman with a music teacher for a dad, a pizza delivering cynic and a bottle of cheap wine with a beard.
I have posted a teaser gallery from Camden Rocks All-Dayer w/ Healthy Junkies & more at The Monarch. Full article will be on Joyzine tomorrow http://ow.ly/K3L850wx6pY

Went to photograph Healthy Junkies upon request from Nina, well it was crazy, I had to stay to the side of the stage especially during Towers of London’s set, it was pure mayhem as the photos show. great fun though.
Towers Of London are a band that wear their influences of their hearts. 2019 sees them bending rock, alternative and indie into a melting pot, emerging with a brand new sound that defines them as a band that are inclusive to all kinds of music and exclusive of none. Their hedonistic reputation precedes them but they've grown into something more. The bands new dawn sees them here seeking to make a difference with the music they make. Rock and Roll, Spirit and Soul.
Punk Rock / Grunge / Psychedelic phenomenon Healthy Junkies continue on their quest to stimulate and celebrate the great rock'n'roll lifestyle. Promoting their 4th studio album out now on Cargo Records, they will be performing new songs off the album along with old faves in their own unique way. Expect melodic chaos and theatrical mayhem...
Roadkill Records are proud to be launching the brand new single from London post-punks Gaygirl. We'll be celebrating the release of 'Sick Note' at The Social with some of the finest bands the city has to offer.
Support comes from rising stars Junodef and WAHL as well as a special guest DJ set from our very own PROJECTOR.
