Wyres, Building Giants, Sky Valley Mistress, Bloodmeridian +more on Saturday 25th March 2023
HED presents a special #SaveTheFerret Fundraiser!!
Wyres // Building Giants // Sky Valley Mistress // Bloodmeridian // Tin Gods - Saturday 25th March @ The Ferret, Preston.
NOTE: THE FIRST 70 ADVANCE TICKETS SOLD FOR THIS EVENT WILL BE MATCHED WITH AN EQUAL DONATION. SO PLEASE, BUY AN ADVANCE TICKET!
Wyres are a melodic punk rock four-piece wth Myspace-era vibes (featuring former members of Preston band 'Failsafe'). Formed at the worst time in history to start a band (March 2020), song ideas flew back and forth over WhatsApp during lockdowns - with 24 home-recorded demos emerging. The aim was to capture a sound that's melodic punk at heart while still raw around the edges - in the vein of Hot Water Music, Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, Bayside, and Beatsteaks. Members of the band also played in Failsafe. They released debut single 'CIRCLES' in early 2022 and have a new EP 'Northern Lights' out in 2023.
Building Giants have attracted a loyal fanbase in the North and used the covid era as an opportunity to take a step back, recalibrate, modernise and transform their sound, working with Grammy award winning producer, Adrian Bushby, to bring a whole host of new noises to the masses in Winter 2022. The first new single 'Computer Rebuter' has been streamed over 100,000 times on Spotify alone.
SKY VALLEY MISTRESS
Sky Valley Mistress finally return to the stage to break it down again. Like an adrenaline shot in the hands of John Travolta, Sky Valley Mistress' line up has been slicked back and is more potent and concentrated than it ever was. Ready to hit you in the chest with a sound that will make you feel electrified, sexualised and spiritualised, there won't be any let up from this celestial comedown. With a revived set of alternate arrangements and fresh jams, Sky Valley Mistress are ready to walk among mortals once more.
Bloodmeridian are a heavy rock band with a recently released debut album titled 'This Is What Dying Is' featuring members from former bands March and Sometime The Wolf.
Opening the night we have special guests and local legends Tin Gods: an indie rock band who dominated the 90’s with their catchy melodies. After a 15 year hiatus they have reformed with some new songs to bring to the party for this final HED fundraiser.
All takes place on Saturday 25th March at The Ferret, Preston.
Doors at 7pm. £6 Advance tickets. [More on the door]

See you there hopefully!
