North Atlas announce Glasgow gig ahead of next release!
Scottish alternative band North Atlas have announced their return to Glasgow with a self-curated show in the city centre.
Taking place at the The Old Hairdressers on Sunday 7th April following a short break to write new material, the band have decided to throw a party in the heart of the city. It promises to be an impressive line up with friends and special guest appearances on the night.
North Atlas frontman Leon Hunter said, “For a long time we’ve wanted to do an old school gig/party in a class wee space just like we used to do when we were first starting out in Dumfries and Galloway village halls. Except for this time, the PA won’t blow up and we know more than three songs. We also have some friends joining us to make things a wee bit more interesting.”
The show comes after the success of their previous singles ‘Another Ocean’ and ‘Volcanoes’. The band recently gained the accolade of ‘Artist of the Week’ from Alex Baker on Kerrang! Radio, who said the band have “constructed a sound of cinematic proportions”.
Described as mixing the anthemic hooks of Linkin Park with the hard-hitting, dramatic electronica of The Prodigy, producer Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns) will again be working with the band to record the new material in Glasgow’s 45 A-Side studio later in April.
Leon explained, “We’re really excited to be releasing new material this summer. Warring with emotion, mental health and overcoming adversities in these modern times has often been the focal point of our lyrics but as for what’s coming next, the cage is open!”
Having grown up in the town of Dalbeattie in Dumfries and Galloway, the band of brothers reconnected with their childhood friend, Liam Russell, to create their signature sound which is laden with memorable lyrics and infectious energy.
Cam Hunter, the band’s drummer and younger brother of Leon, added: “With the addition of a new member we’ve developed our live show to bring a mega-tonne of new energy. Genuinely, I’m so stoked!”
Tickets are available for the gig here, priced at £7 (including booking fee).
