London via Newcastle protest band VANT are just chomping at the bit for their opportunity to wow punters at SXSW 2017 in March. Don’t believe me? Read my interview with their frontman Mattie Vant from November through here. For those of you (and myself) who have not have the wonderful opportunity to see the group perform live, either at a regular headline show, or at their homecoming show back at Newcastle Cluny in early November for last autumn’s edition of Dr. Martens’ #STANDFORSOMETHING tour, they’ve got something special for us.
In December, they performed at London Scala in the north of the city. It’s a pretty cool venue to start out with, so any live video shared from the place would look very cool anyway. However, they didn’t stop there. Through stylised editing of the actual performance as if a moving scrapbook, as well as coverage of their fans queueing outside and enjoying the show once inside, this video comes across as high-energy documentation of the band’s blistering live performance experience. Watch it below. Stay tuned of our coverage of VANT when we’re out in Austin. To read through our growing back catalogue of coverage on VANT, follow this link.
American West Coast synthpop band LANY will play three live shows in England this March as part of an extensive worldwide tour including dates in Europe, Australia and the Philippines. We at TGTF caught LANY at the end of last year, here in America, as they were in the midst of a meteoric ascent up the Spotify streaming charts. Their track ‘ILYSB’ is currently the most streamed song of all time on Spotify Discover; you can hear a live version of it just below the tour date listing.
A full list of LANY’s upcoming tour dates, from the end of February through mid-July, can be found on their official Facebook. Tickets for the following shows are available now.
Monday 6th March 2017 – Birmingham Institute

Immediately following the release of ‘Lemon Memory’, Menace Beach will set out on tour through the UK, including stops in London and Glasgow and a homecoming show in Leeds. Tickets are on sale now. Then in March, Menace Beach will make their American debut at SXSW 2017, so keep an eye out for TGTF’s coverage from Austin.

Kettering psych rock band Temples have announced a list of live dates to be played in England this spring, following the release of their forthcoming second album ‘Volcano’. The new LP is due out on the 3rd of March via Heavenly Recordings, and the band have also unveiled a new track from it, titled ‘Strange or Be Forgotten’. Bassist Tom Walmsley describes the impetus for the song: “We’re continually inundated with pressure in modern life to have to make something of ourselves and leave behind a legacy in this world. ‘Strange Or Be Forgotten’ is our way of questioning the necessity of having to be all so individual and unique – when really it’s our true selves that should be celebrated.” You’ll find a stream of ‘Strange or Be Forgotten’ just below the tour date listing.
Temples’ upcoming shows in England are part of a larger European tour; you can find a full listing of their live dates on the band’s official Web site. In the midst of their English tour, Temples will also make a stop at the 2Q Festival in Derby on the 1st of April. Tickets for the following shows will be available today starting at 10 AM.
TGTF’s previous coverage of Temples, including a live review from Kendal Calling 2015, is collected right through here.
