John follow their acclaimed 2017 debut God Speed In The National Limit and a European tour with Idles by playing Mabgate Bleach on October 5. New album Out Here On The Fringes adopts a stripped-back approach, with guest musicians subtly woven between the band’s trademark angular guitar and drum lines.

Bloxx will showcase new single Headspace on October 8 when they play the Brudenell Social Club.

DIY magazine describe the band as “attention-grabbing, straight-up bangers” while Clash magazine praised their crisp, infectious, totally contagious indie pop songs. Headspace has emotional lyrics about post-breakup life over contrastingly buoyant, festival-ready instrumentation.

She said: “I’m incredibly excited to bring the movie to life on stage – it’s not only visually stunning and pleasing to the senses but also a fun learning experience and a safe place to express yourself and be accepted for exactly who you are.”

Laurence Jones will take his European tour to Leeds Lending Room in December 12 with an album entitled Laurence Jones Band following last spring’s single I’m Waiting.
