“This will be loud and fast and heavy and loud and faster and louder“
No Spill Blood
No Spill Blood is the new band from Matt Hedigan (Elk), Lar Kaye (Adebisi Shank) and Ruadhan O’Meara (Magic Pockets). Formed in the winter of 2011, they gained notoriety for a number of small, secret gigs (sometimes under a different name) in and around Dublin. Recently the band garnered feverish acclaim at the annual Whelan’s Ones To Watch event and played their first Cork show to a packed audience in Triskel’s TDC room. The band are going against the grain by avoiding the traditional route of release/tour and concentrating entirely on building a reputation from live gigs and word of mouth. Their debut EP will be released on Vinyl and Digitally via Sargent House in late Summer 2012
Belfast-based Before Machines formed in early 2008 and quickly set about earning a reputation for fearsome, energetic live shows around the country. Their three releases to date, one Ep, one double A-side and their new single “Stalagmites”, have since won them more converts; displaying a combination of angular riffs, powerful bass, inventive drumming and sing-along vocals.
