BOSSK
Travelling on the borders between atmospheric toned-down rock, post rock, and a heavier and more aggressive metal, this UK band has created beautiful melodies balanced with a more powerful and hard line edge. Ambient metal might be a more suitable adjective to describe their sound.
This five piece band, from Ashford Kent formed in 2005 and the following year they released their debut EP in the UK, titled appropriately “1” through the “QnotQ” record label and in the rest of the world it was released through “Throne Records”.
Their debut EP has two lengthy epic tracks on it and those tracks have changing moods, one minute, calm and acoustic, the next heavy duty riffing reminiscent of Pelican. Their music is a marriage of post-rock’s mellower approach and atmospheric metal’s heavier attitude with crunchy riffing.
The band are well known throughout the UK due to extensive touring. Tours of Spain and Portugal soon followed and in addition they have been invited to tour along with post rock giants like Cult Of Luna, Grails and many others.
This autumn sees the band headlining a month long tour of the UK and Ireland promoting their latest EP release “.2” (8th October on “Eyes of Sound” record label).
This is a band that has found it direction and interest and accolades follow. If you like post rock on the heavy melodic side then this gig is for you.

MANATEES
(www.myspace.com/manateetheband) Mike Diver of Drowned in Sound described this band as the best he had seen
"Still the best British band I have seen all year, probably, Carlisle-based trio Manatees hit the road later this month alongside Ashford-based rock titans Bossk. It's going to be epic.
Probably. You should go, really, if the idea of Isis heaviness meeting proggy fug and bewildering noise is pretty, y'know, ace to you. It is to me! Hurray! Don't judge Manatees just on their on-MySpace material, either - when we had them play our February DiScover Club gig, alongside Rolo Tomassi and Down I Go, I nearly died! Twice! Yep!"

LAYMAR
Manchester's finest purveyors of wonderful, dark melodic post rock.
"Stark visuals and a band dressed in black may be warning enough but it’ll never prepare you for the sonic bombing that lays a carpet of blood soaked sounds between your ears. Think ethereal but with nuclear triggers. Laymar’s brooding, progressive rock combines live loops and samples, shuddering guitars and live drums that pound away like a distant jungle telegraph warning of impending doom. The whole thing is an orchestrated symphony that embraces spontaneity and some sort of beautiful turmoil." -ManchesterMusic.com

BURNST
"Peaks and troughs and diversions and great cinematic landscapes; dark chugging riffs to peals of delay. This is post-rock as it was when that actually meant something as opposed to the contrived slowed-down-indie-and-gosh-look-at-my-time-signatures nonsense that so often masquerades as post-rock these days. Built of nothing more than guitar, bass and drums there's a complete absence of the pretentiousness that renders the likes of Explosions In the Sky a bit on the annoying side.
