Alien Weaponry At The Underworld Camden

Live Nation UK and The Underworld Camden proudly present: Alien Weaponry plus support. Doors - 6:00pm // Price - 14.00 Adv. Tickets - http://po.st/v8NtWl About: Alien Weaponry - www.facebook.com/AlienWeaponry "Whispers" - https://youtu.be/3HychlNvGq4 Alien Weaponry are one of the most exciting young metal bands in the world right now according to Revolver Magazine in the USA. And theyre not the only ones who thinks so. Since well before they released their debut album Tu on 1 June 2018, fans, bloggers, the music industry and the media worldwide have raved about Alien Weaponrys unique blend of thrash metal and their native language, Te Reo Maori. The three-piece thrash metal band from Waipu, New Zealand, was formed in 2010 by brothers Lewis and Henry de Jong, who were 8 and 10 years old at the time. The band consists of Lewis de Jong (guitar and vocals), Henry de Jong (drums), and Ethan Trembath (bass guitar). Most noted for their fusion of Te Reo Maori (the native language of New Zealand) with thrash metal, they deliver emotionally and politically charged stories of conflict and grief with a warrior-like attitude. Drummer Henry de Jong says, Our musical style and messages have a lot of similarities with haka, which is often brutal, angry and about stories of great courage or loss. The de Jong brothers are of Ngati Pikiao and Ngati Raukawa (Maori tribal) descent; and began their schooling at a kura kaupapa Maori (full immersion Maori language school), where singing waiata (songs) and performing haka were a daily routine. Also ingrained in their early learning were stories of New Zealand history told to them by their father, who, alongside the story telling, played them music from Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Anthrax, Ministry, Red Hot Chili Peppers; and it is this combination of music, language, history and socio-political commentary that underpins the bands sound and ideas. The brothers named the band Alien Weaponry after watching the movie District 9. After moving to the small town of Waipu in 2012, they were joined by bass guitarist Ethan Trembath in April 2013. At the time, Trembath was 11 years old, and got the job because he could reach the end of the bass guitar. The band has toured extensively in New Zealand since 2013, including headline/main stage slots at the NZ Tattoo & Arts Festival, Wavefront and Auckland City Limits; as well as opening for Prophets of Rage in March 2018. More recently, they have sold out headline shows in Australia, Europe and the USA; and played to record crowds at some of the biggest and most prestigious festivals and in Europe and the UK, including Wacken Open Air (Germany), MetalDays (Slovenia), Summer Breeze (Germany) and Bloodstock Open Air (UK). In New Zealand, Alien Weaponry has won multiple awards, starting with their double win at Smokefreerockquest and Smokefree Pacifica Beats in 2016. In 2017, they won the APRA Maioha Award for their song Raupatu; and were finalists in the APRA Silver Scroll Award (Urutaa); the Waiata Maori Awards for Best Music Video (Ru Ana Te Whenua); and the Vodafone NZ Music Awards for Best Maori Artist. In 2018, they were finalists in the Vodafone NZ Music Awards in six categories, taking home the Tui for Best Rock Artist, while the producers of Tu won the Best Producer award. The band is managed internationally by German-based agency Das Maschine; and has a worldwide distribution deal with Napalm Records. They are represented by Pinnacle Entertainment (also representing Slayer, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie and Noel Gallagher) in North America and UK-based K2 touring agency (also representing Slayer, Iron Maiden, Mastodon and Gojira) in the rest of the world. Following the release of their debut album Tu, AWs single Kai Tangata rocketed to no.1 on the prestigious Devils Dozen countdown for the Liquid Metal show on New York based Sirius XM, where it remained for 13 weeks. The video for Kai Tangata was the Most Added Metal Song for June 2018 on US Cable Channel Music Choice (delivering to 50 million households) and had over 2 million views on YouTube in the first four months since its release.

Milton Nascimento In London - Clube Da Esquina

JUST ANNOUNCED!!! Brazilian musical icon Milton Nascimento revisits songs from his pivotal Clube da Esquina project the series of albums that transformed the musical landscape of his country. It was a defiant project a collaborative, collectivist response to the military dictatorship operating in Brazil. Fusing Afro jazz and Latin American folk, while also taking influence from The Beatles, John Coltrane and Western classical, these albums allowed an entire generation of Brazilian artists to free themselves from bossa nova. Tonight, Nascimento and friends play a selection of highlights from the two Clube da Esquina albums, as well as from Minas, Geraes, among other surprises. \'I had never thought of doing something that would bring together the two Clube albums, but I feel that now is the time. This Clube da Esquina tour is sure to be a truly magical event, to say the least\', says Milton. \'I want to bring an idea that can unite people. I am sure this will be the most special project that I have done in all these years.\' \'His melodies are extraordinary. They\'re unique. Milton Nascimento is most likely the greatest Brazilian song writer since Jobim/Gilberto.\' - Paul Simon \'Milton is a brilliant composer; he has one of the most amazing voices I have ever heard. His melodies are of a simplicity that just hit the core of your heart.\' - Herbie Hancock

Paradise Lost / Manchester Collective

The major commission in Manchester Collective\'s 2018/19 season, Paradise Lost reunites the creative team behind last years critically acclaimed Written in Fire - Vessel, AKA composer and electronic musician Sebastian Gainsborough, and Rakhi Singh, Music Director of Manchester Collective. One of the most enigmatic, disruptive, and exciting creative duos of their generation, Vessel and Singh have created a large scale original work for Manchester Collective, a magnum opus that draws together fractured and disparate music from their respective worlds. Here, the sacred meets the profane, the acoustic clashes with the electronic, and some of the earliest classical music ever written is dragged, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century. "Intimate, immersive musical experiences without parallel" - Bachtrack "One of the most important ensembles currently bringing classical music to UK audiences" - Northern Soul Manchester Collective is redefining how a new generation of audiences engage with the arts in the UK. Recently described by the Yorkshire Post as a "powerful, moving, & extraordinary" addition to the UK music scene, Manchester Collective produces world-class, innovative, and outward facing musical experiences for new audiences across Britain. Their thrilling live performances, allied with daring programming and a brazen approach to convention, have seen the Collective reach more than 200,000 people across their first two seasons. In December 2017, Manchester Collective was appointed Ensemble in Residence at The Stoller Hall, a new flagship concert hall for Manchester. In 2018, Manchester Collective has been featured by publications including The Strad Magazine (twice), Bachtrack (intimate, immersive experiences without parallel), and Seen and Heard International (an astonishing evening). Classic FM and the BBC have also featured the work of the Collective on an ongoing basis, and in March 2018, MC presented a groundbreaking two hour classical broadcast on NTS Radio. Recent performing highlights include concert debuts at Kings Place in London, a PRSF supported tour of the Collectives latest major commission, 100 DEMONS, (featuring electronic musician Vessel, cellist and Radiohead collaborator Oliver Coates, and music by Daniel Elms), and a packed performance of Messiaens Quartet for the End of Time in The Stoller Hall, broadcast live on Facebook to over 10,000 viewers.

King Crimson - Celebrating 50 Years

English prog royalty King Crimson will celebrate their 50th Anniversary at the Royal Albert Hall in 2019. The band returned to live performance in 2014 with critically acclaimed sell-out shows all over the world, including two defining shows at the Roman amphitheatre in Pompeii. King Crimson are now bringing their unique show to the Hall for these three exclusive UK shows. You can expect to hear material from twelve of their studio albums, including many of the songs from their seminal 1969 release In The Court of the Crimson King. King Crimsons newfound wider appeal began when Kanye Wests sampled one of the bands masterpieces, \'21st Century Schizoid Man\' for his 2010 hit \'Power\'. More recently, \'Starless\' featured as the soundtrack of the opening scenes of Nicholas Cages 2018 film \'Mandy\'.
