ADORE // REPEL

LEEDS BAD APPLES | Saturday 17 November | Free Show

 

ADORE // REPEL recently returned from a self-booked, self-financed 10-date tour of the west coast of the USA in September, taking in shows in Portland, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, San Diego, San Francisco and Los Angeles amongst others. Having landed back on home soil, the band have announced a free end of year show at LEEDS BAD APPLES on SATURDAY 17 NOVEMBER.

 

Before leaving for America in early September, the band launched a new single and video, FRACTURES / IN TIME, their first new material since their debut album, EMPTY ORCHESTRA, which was released last year to a multitude of highly positive reviews. The new release followed another successful tour to Iceland in May and their rammed performance at the LONG DIVISION FESTIVAL in Wakefield in June, and is a further demonstration of their powerful and devastating, essentially instrumental sound.

NEW SINGLE & VIDEO

 

ADORE // REPEL have launched a new single and video, FRACTURES / IN TIME, their first new material since their debut album, EMPTY ORCHESTRA, which was released last year to a multitude of highly positive reviews. The new release follows their rammed performance at the LONG DIVISION FESTIVAL in their home town of Wakefield earlier this month and is a further demonstration of their powerful, devastating and essentially instrumental sound.

Not bad for a self-funded four-piece from Wakefield, West Yorkshire; a fiercely independent band with their own record label, their own studio – which they built themselves – their own record shop and coffee bar, who operate without a booking agent or manager, and embrace everything that has always been so healthy about the DIY ethic.

 

Many bands follow a similar path. The difference perhaps with ADORE // REPEL is that, without resorting to the machinations of the music industry, they have previously self-booked and played several full UK tours, along the way selling every bit of merchandise they took with them; performed three sell out tours in Iceland; played the Reading and Leeds Festivals; made the BBC Introducing Top Ten Sessions list; and self-released their debut album, EMPTY ORCHESTRA, to huge acclaim.
