Described by Bring the Noise as being “Refreshingly genuine, they engage you through warm vocals and well written, unpretentious lyrics”, the Edinburgh based band announce this tour, fresh from their first gig of the year at The Barfly in London.

During their time together the boys have collected supports slots for Enter Shikari, The Xcerts, and Nine Black Alps and The Boxer Rebellion, whilst also selling out their own headline shows.

When we caught them on the release of ‘Departures’ last year our reviewer noted the intensity and complexity of the tunes; “These are well-crafted songs with multilayered arrangements featuring riffs and hooks and melodies that demand your full attention.”

Their most recent single ‘All Back Home’  , which was released in March accompanied by an impressive video (see below), leads the way the release of their second studio album due out on the 27th of April.

In what promises to be a cracking night of music two local acts have been announced. Bite Night whose un-exhaustable desire to gig has seen them be announced to open the Garden Stage on the first day of Belladrum 2015.

Also on the bill will be Silver Coast, whose successfully released second single ‘Hold On’ in January won the support of the likes of Vic Galloway. They have also been selected in Drowned In Sound’s Mark Muldoon “21 MUST LISTEN to songs” from his judging of this year’s Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition.

“We are extremely excited to be supporting these guys.” said frontman for Silver Coast Aaron Murray adding “We’ve been following them since we started as Silver Coast and to be supporting them at Ironworks will be amazing! We will also be recording our EP with Mark Morrow from The Winter Tradition in May. Extremely exciting times for us and we can’t thank them enough for asking us to support them”.

Tickets for the show on the 17th of May, are available now on line.
