RedFaces + Special Guests

RedFaces are four lads from Sheffield treading what was once a well-worn path, these days the road less travelled. The journey started at 2Fly Studios in Sheffield, recording demos with Alan Smyth, the man behind the Arctic Monkey's first ventures. Out of these sessions came the band’s first release 'Katie Come Home' in early 2015 – championed by BBC Introducing it also attracted the attention of the London A&R fraternity, eventually signing with RCA last year.
Could these be the next big thing? Quite possibly.
British indie-rock band KARKOSA were formed in Birmingham in 2014 by brothers Michael and Jack Warnock. After recruiting Tom Rushton on lead guitar, Ryan Trott on bass and Will Clews on Keyboard, the band wrote and recorded a batch of songs in 2017 putting them online. Their melodic, propulsive rock sound is heavily inspired by Catfish and the Bottlemen, Royal Blood and Foo Fighters. 'The Devil’s Greatest Trick', the band’s inaugural release arrived in 2016 followed by 'Monarchy', 'Sheffield' and 'Where the River Flows' in 2017.
Rai Kah Mercury displays subtlety and intensity often in one song. Influences can be traced through Free, Crazy Horse, Joy Division to Radiohead, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
The Life is a three-piece rock n roll band from Birmingham, Their melodic anthems with infectious riffs and articulate lyrics make for an electrifying combination. No nonsense rock n roll with a sound that swaggers and captivates audiences. A sound inspired by the great guitar bands before them but not just a tribute to it these boys are creating something fresh and exciting. A presence that oozes confidence and songs that ooze even more passion The Life is not to be missed.
