Following a monster North American co-headline tour with Beck and with the release of their critically acclaimed album, ‘Social Cues’, earlier this year, Grammy-Award winning band Cage The Elephant have announced a UK and European tour for 2020. Support across the run will come from West Coast Punk band SWMRS (UK & Europe) and American Psyche Rock band Post Animal (UK only).
SOFI TUKKER have shared ‘Fantasy’ (R3HAB Remix) in advance of their performance at the second weekend of Coachella. The Dutch DJ/producer takes the jubilant original, which collages elements of 90s Euro-pop with the group’s global take on dance music and infuses it with a propulsive big room house rhythm made for dance-floor rapture.
Canadian band Marianas Trench have been around for the best part of twenty years, forming in 2001, releasing five albums since then, and touring extensively, most often around Canada and the USA, but also in Australia, the UK and Europe. At London’s KOKO venue, during their UK tour in May 2017, lead singer Josh Ramsay said how he was humbled at how many people were at the show, especially considering they had never released an album in the UK. The venue was packed solid, made up of fans, the curious, and media. All left impressed and wanting more. This year, Marianas Trench *have* released an album in the UK, the magnificent ‘Phantoms’, written around the theme of being haunted by the memory of people in our past. Lisa had the chance to speak to Josh Ramsay, and asked him about the album, the songwriting process, and just when they were hoping to get back to the UK.
SOFI TUKKER invite you into their ‘Fantasy’ with their new single and video which are the first taste of the next phase of the group following the international success of their debut album ‘Treehouse’ which culminated in their second GRAMMY nomination, performance at the GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony, and the gold certification of ‘Best Friend’ in the US last month.
With two #1 albums, five Top 10 singles, a BRIT Award and seven million records sold, James Morrison is one of the biggest success stories of his era.

Today March 1 sees the release of Tom Walker’s debut album, ‘What A Time To Be Alive’. The title could well be a description of what’s been going on in Tom’s head lately: he won the BRIT Award for British Breakthrough Act, and was nominated for his single, ‘Leave A Light On’. That track entered straight into the UK Official Top 40 songs of 2018, and also hit the #1 spot on iTunes in 20 countries, and sold Platinum in 10.
