BIGFOOT ‘Karma’ video

BIGFOOT ‘Karma’ video for new single included on self-titled debut album out 13.10.17 on Frontiers

Bigfoot are releasing another single from their upcoming self-titled debut album, which is released via Frontiers Music srl on 13th October. ‘Karma’ follows ‘The Fear’, ’Tell Me A Lie’ and ‘Forever Alone’ as the fourth song to be lifted from the record. The band begin a UK tour with a special album launch event in Manchester on 14th October. The full itinerary is as follows :

14.10.17 MANCHESTER Sound Control (album launch event)
19.10.17 WITNEY Fat Lils
26.10.17 LONDON Underworld
28.10.17 GRIMSBY Yardbirds
02.11.17 STOKE Eleven
03.11.17 CARDIFF Fuel
04.11.17 CANNOCK The Station
05.11.17 SOUTH SHIELDS Queen Vic
09.11.17 GLASGOW Hard Rock Cafe
11.11.17 SHEFFIELD Corporation (with Tyketto)
24.11.17 TROON Winterstorm Festival
25.11.17 EDINBURGH La Belle Angele (with Tyketto)

Bigfoot is a hard rock band from Wigan who burst onto the scene in the spring of 2014. With a wide range of influences from The Eagles through to Pantera, the group boasts the powerful vocals of Antony Ellis, dual lead guitars from Sam Millar and Mick McCullagh, plus the thunderous rhythm section of bassist Matt Avery and drummer Tom Aspinall.

Having toured constantly around the UK and performed at festivals including Breakout, Bloodstock, Hard Rock Hell, Steelhouse and more, the quintet have built themselves a loyal grassroots following in their home territory. Two successful self-released EP’s also drew the attention of the Naples based rock powerhouse Frontiers Music Srl, who signed them to their roster as fast as they could.

‘The Fear’ was written shortly after the release of the second EP. Sam Millar describes it as “a song about the fear in our heads and how it can consume your whole life and take over”, while musically Mick McCullagh states that “it is a Jekyll and Hyde type affair. There’s the gnarly, in your face heavy rock guitar side of it, then the melodic, anthemic side with big uplifting vocals. It’s very dynamic, which adds to the tension we were aiming for.”

The video for ‘The Fear’ was shot by Shane Green at The Giffard in Wolverhampton. Tom Aspinall says “we had played there a month or so before and thought the stage would be perfect for the shots we wanted with the idea of it being quite dark and frantic. We’ve worked with Shane in the past and knew he would deliver a fast paced and exciting video.”

The self-titled debut album by Bigfoot is out on 13th October via Frontiers. Co-produced by the band with Justin Richards (who also mixed the record), it consists of eleven songs. The artwork and tracklisting are as follows :

1 Karma
2 The Fear
3 Tell Me A Lie
4 Forever Alone
5 Eat Your Words
6 Prisoner Of War
7 Freak Show
8 I Dare You
9 The Devil In Me
10 Uninvited
11 Yours

This Bigfoot is no myth, but they are about to become legends.

Lisbee Stainton Announces Acoustic Tour Dates

Following the release of her fifth studio album ‘Then Up’ and subsequent UK tour earlier this year, the highly acclaimed singer-songwriter Lisbee Stainton has announced a run of acoustic shows for November 2017.

Starting at Bristol’s Louisiana venue on 1st November, Stainton will then play The John Peel Centre in Stowmarket (4th), The Live Rooms in Chester (5th), The Slaughtered Lamb in London (6th) and Talking Heads in Southampton (7th).

Stainton will be joined on stage by fellow guitarist Jack Rutter, who first performed with Lisbee when they played together in folk star Seth Lakeman’s band.

Now based in London, Hampshire-born Stainton’s career originally started in 2007 when she became the first unsigned artist to play London’s O2 Arena. Soon after, BBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson discovered Lisbee’s song ‘Red’, and his support subsequently led to Lisbee’s music being playlisted by BBC Radio 2.

In addition to releasing five studio albums (‘Firefly’ (2006), ‘Girl on an Unmade Bed’ (2010), ‘Go’ (2011), ‘Word Games’ (2014) and ‘Then Up’ in Aril 2017), Stainton has also toured with notable artists such as Joan Armatrading, Paul Brady, Gretchen Peters, Paul Carrack and the aforementioned Seth Lakeman – the latter being so moved by Stainton’s live performances that he invited her to join his band in 2012.

Looking ahead to her November tour dates, Stainton said, “I had so much fun touring the new album ‘Then Up’ in May, so I can’t wait to play these dates. Jack Rutter and I work really well together on stage, and the new songs were definitely written to be played live, so it’s a wonderful feeling to have the songs come alive around us. Performing in such intimate venues also allows for us to meet most of the audience, adding a personal dimension to each show. We’ll see you there!”

Lisbee Stainton’s November 2017 tour dates are as follows:

Wed 1st            Bristol             Louisiana

Sat 4th              Stowmarket     John Peel Centre

Sun 5th             Chester            Live Rooms

Mon 6th            London           Slaughtered Lamb

Tue 7th             Southampton   Talking Heads
