Britain’s ‘Ones to Watch’ come to Wrexham

Big Pink

If you were to ask any of the country’s leading music journalists who they thought Britain’s best up and coming band were then there would be very few who wouldn’t automatically state: The Big Pink.

Since winning the Phillip Hall Radar Award at this year’s NME Awards The Big Pink have quickly gained fans across the globe with their beautiful, shoegaze rock. Singles such as ‘Velvet’, ‘Stop the World’ and next release ‘Dominos‘ have already been touted as some of the best tracks of the year and their debut album, ‘A Brief History of Love’ (released September 14th), is set to make a late claim for ‘Album of the ’00’s’ with its 11 mesmerising tracks combining influences reflecting the past 30 years of industrial rock as well as a sound of the music that will shape our world in the future.

On Monday October 12th the band will be appearing at Don’t Die Just Yet! in Central Station, Wrexham, midway through a tour promoting their debut LP. Their live shows have already amazed crowds of thousands across Europe this summer at some of the biggest festivals on the circuit, Zane Lowe having already proclaimed that there is a ‘massive exclamation mark’ next to the band’s name in his ‘must see’ list.

A European tour with fellow experimental-rockers TV on the Radio earlier in the year went a long way in shaping the band that you see today, if you want to see them push themselves to the next level then you’ll have to get your ticket for what will be one of the most incredible performances ever seen in Wrexham.

As well as the headliners there will also be an eagerly awaited support slot from We Fell to Earth (the new project from UNKLE man Richard Files).

Opening the show will be Wrexham’s brightest new hope: teenage post-punk quartet Unseen Archives. If you’ve had the privilege to catch one of their sets already this year then you’ll understand why they’re getting everyone talking with their cutting edge tracks and dynamic live set.

Tunes will be spun between bands by DDJY! residents who are sure to make the night complete with their blend of the best in old and new underground tracks.

Tickets are now on sale for just £8 and can be purchased from Yale’s Cafe Bar, seetickets.com, ticketline.co.uk, via phone on 0870 444 5556 or from members of Unseen Archives; anyone over 14 is welcome, doors open at 7:30pm.
