London based Alt Rock band My Vitriol, oft-credited with ushering a “new wave of shoegaze” dubbed ‘NuGaze’ in the early 2000’s, return after a lengthy hiatus with their limited release album “The Secret Sessions”.
Over the years, the band have received high praise from peers and press alike; with Chino Moreno (Deftones), Coldplay, Butch Vig & Shirley Manson (Garbage) and many others praising the band in the music press. 2016 saw the band’s live return to support Muse at the London O2 Arena and shows and festivals across Europe to over 100,000 people. At the very end of 2016, the band announced a fanbase special at the London Scala on the 12th April 2017, which sold out immediately.
Following their string of Top 40 hits and their critically acclaimed debut album “Finelines”, My Vitriol rode the crest of a hype wave and media attention, transcending from underground band – with only a matter of months experience – to performances on numerous TV shows such as “Top of the Pops” and festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds main stage etc. Shortly after their third Top 40 single the band surprised many by calling a sudden hiatus, and proceeded to break the silence over the following years only to perform the occasional sold out show.
Few in the field of explorative ambient music have remained as questing and unclassifiable as Canadian composer Tim Hecker. Across his 15-year career he has moved through shades of reflective electronic noise, experiential sound design, and modern composition with a deft and distinguished touch.
Forget folklore, and get ready for intense urban sounds straight from Athens Greece by a 7-piece band including the two brothers, a soaring female vocalist, a crowd engaging MC and three virtuosi on the bouzouki, saxophone and el. guitar, that have succeeded in getting audiences all around the world to their feet!
For this special performance, all three will be on-stage throughout, sharing and joining in on each other’s songs, having a laugh and a blether, performing two sets of 1hr and 1hr 15mins.
