New Zealand psych-heads Orchestra Of Spheres return to the EU/UK this May/June ahead of the release of their brand new album ‘Brothers And Sisters Of The Black Lagoon’ – out May 13th on Fire Records- and let us tell you, it’s an absolutely brilliant slab of other-worldly psychedelic/world/experimental pop. They’re even crazier live so make sure to catch them at one of the dates below!


The Chills add more UK shows & return to UK,  play KOKO June 8th 
Following the success of ‘Silver Bullets’, their first album in nearly 2 decades, Dunedin legends The Chills return to the UK this Spring to perform at London’s premier live music venue: KOKO! This will be the first time fans can hear the new Chills album played live in the UK, plus a few old favourites for good measure.
The band are also set to play Brighton’s West Hill Hall, Leeds Belgrave Music Hall, Cardiff’s Globe with more TBC! Full dates below.
Tickets for KOKO are priced at £20 and are available here
