The Blinders are heading to Brighton on their first ever UK headline tour. The three-piece alternative group from Doncaster are set to play at The Hope & Ruin on February 4th with support from Rapports and Bad Family.
Having been described as one of the most exciting bands on the scene, they belt loud political punk rock with psychedelic poetry and tone. This diverse combination of raw music creates a ‘Punkadelic’ sound leading to a frenzied live performance. The trio, now based in Manchester, are known for their infamously raucous gigs. This is a band that is set to be huge.
The Blinders tour is courtesy of This Feeling, a series of gig and club nights scattered around the UK showcasing the freshest unsigned bands the country has to offer. They have supported some of the most popular indie and rock bands around, Blossoms and Catfish & The Bottlemen to name just two. Noel Gallagher has publicly called them the best club in the UK for future rock and roll stars.
The UK wide ‘This Feeling’ tour follows on from two sold out ‘This Feeling Big in 2017’ shows in Manchester and London in January. It will tie in with the vinyl release of their record ‘Swine’ and unreleased track ‘Ramona Flowers’, of which a limited signed 7” will be available at the shows.
Support comes from two local bands. Firstly, an indie rock band, The Rapports. The Brighton based band will be debuting their single, Come Home, at the event on Saturday night and giving away two copies of their limited edition 10” EP. Bad Family will also be playing at the event, a band who create dark pop melodies with raw lyrics of heartbreak, sex and addiction.
Tickets are £5 in advance and £6 on the door, which includes a free JD & Coke for the first 50 to enter the venue.
