Hairy Scary Promotions Presents:
Seven Sisters & Toledo Steel co-headline tour.

Tickets are £5 in advance, but will be £7 on the door.
Born in the depths of West London, Seven Sisters are a four-piece band forged from the same steel as the NWOBHM acts of yesteryear. Over the past two years they’ve gathered a reputation as a stellar act in the heavy metal scene; earning their stripes playing shows all over the UK and Europe off the back of the two independent releases The Warden Demo (2014), and the Lost In Time 7” (2015). Recently signing a deal with one of the most respected underground heavy metal record labels, High Roller Records, their self-titled debut album (14/10/2016) has received rave reviews and sold out of all physical copies in three weeks after the release.
Seven Sisters combines a love for story and folklore with virtuosity and epic atmosphere. Over the course of the album there are twists and turns that take you on a journey embellished with melody, ferocity, and twin lead guitars to create a sound that, although familiar, is Seven Sisters' alone. It can only be described as heavy metal, but it is much more than that and is sure to cement Seven Sister’s place in the thriving metal scene.
Southampton's Toledo Steel have been conquering stages across the UK and Europe since 2011 with their own style of 80s influenced high energy heavy metal and have proved themselves to be one of the UK's leading forces in the New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal.
The band recorded a strong demo in 2012, but it was the release of their self-titled EP in 2013 that, along with countless gigs and festival appearances, pushed Toledo Steel into the spotlight and won over audiences, listeners and reviewers across the world. The band then entered the studio again to record their widely praised second EP “Zero Hour” which has sold nearly 1,000 copies since it's independent release in 2015.
Following “Zero Hour”, Toledo Steel spent the next two years performing further across Europe while continuing to write new material and in 2017, the song “Rock Nights” was released on the the “British Steel” compilation album. The band have since signed with Dissonance Productions to release their highly anticipated debut album “No Quarter” in May 2018, marking the beginning of the next chapter for Toledo Steel.
Midnight Force is a Heavy Metal band that sets out to follow in the footsteps of the heroes of old, Judas Priest, Manilla Road and the NWOBHM movement - as well as being inspired by younger bands like Enforcer, Ambush or Amulet.
Midnight Force focus on 80s inspired Heavy Metal and our members have years of experience playing live, supporting such bands as Diamond Head, Striker, Blaze Bayley, Holocaust and Jex Thoth. Midnight Force performed at No Sleep Til Dublin Festival 2016, alongside Metal Inquisitor, Dead Lord and Sacral Rage amongst others and have played the latest edition of Brofest, in Newcastle, as well as supporting High Spirits in Edinburgh and Ross the Boss in Glasgow or Angel Witch in Germany. Midnight Force has also been featured, with an interview and review, in Deaf Forever magazine and by the end of February we will release our debut full-length DUNSINANE.
In 2018, Midnight Force embarked on a four date tour across Germany supporting bands such as Savage Master, Venom Inc. or Desaster!
Local Support from Aberdeen's Celtic Beast, who are influenced by bands such as Saxon, Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, Edguy, Avantasia, Guns N Roses, Ratt, Dokken, Metallica.
