To cap off a summer that’s already seen Muncie Girls tour Australia, play Glastonbury Festival, 2000trees and more, the Exeter trio are gearing up to round off the season with performances at Reading & Leeds Festivals and Bingley Live. In addition to the final festivals of the summer, Muncie Girls will play five headline shows across the country, kicking off at the end of August. Continue reading

Following last year’s brilliant 10th anniversary celebration, the Cheltenham-based, independent, green-fields rock festival can today announce their first set of acts for this summer’s event. Continue reading
The greatest weekend of the year is almost upon us! We love festival season more than most, but we’re not too interested in the corporate-dominated city-sized bad boys that litter the summer, but more in a 5,000 capacity event set in the beautiful surroundings of the Cotswolds, with 80 of the finest underground bands over 5 stages. This festival is 2000trees, and there aren’t many like it. Continue reading
On Friday 23rd October, Sheer Music are delighted to announce that InMe’s front man, Dave McPherson, will be returning to Wiltshire and head lining our first ever Trowbridge show, as we look to finish off our year in style.
2000trees is over for another year and once again festival goers were treated to ‘the best year yet’ with more than 100 artists on six stages, plus secret acoustic sets, busking box magic, silent disco, late night (and early morning) entertainment, with quality food and drink and a range of market stalls, games, children’s activities and a VIP tattoo parlour. And the brand new silent cinema, featuring four films over two nights, went down a storm.
Immediately following up our Gnarwolves gig in February with arguably the hottest property in the UK underground right now, Sheer Music are proud to bring Moose Blood to Swindon on Sunday 8th March.
The latest Moose Blood tour sold out all over the country, and the signs are that this show is set to do well too. Check out the black and white, simple yet stylishly cool video to current single ‘I Hope You’re Missing Me‘ below…
It’s easy to see why they’ve been given the ’emo’ tag; it’s all lyrics, deep feelings, catchy hooks and good looks. They’ve been widely compared to early Taking Back Sunday, but through a British filter. Whatever, it’s memorable and very, very exciting.
Support for the show comes from TCOV ‘Ones To Watch in 2015‘ band Creeper – the Southampton punks making a name as one of the most exciting emerging bands in the UK right now. A Swindon headliner in their own right, the fact that we’ve managed to snare them on this tour means that we have a ridiculous night of hot new heroes of the UK underground right here in Swindon. Kieran of Sheer described Creeper as having an early Offspring vibe, we’d describe them as more Bouncing Souls meets Against Me!, with their clean melodic vocals laid over a fast punk sound. Whoever you’re into, come along and decide who they sound like for yourself. You can also grab their EP free from their Bandcamp.
Opening the night is one of Swindon’s rising stars With Ghosts. Having emerged onto the scene last year when opening for Gnarwolves, they have since recorded their debut EP and picked up a decent press company who will be ready to spread the band’s wings and push them out of Swindon at around the same time of the show. Be sure to catch their latest video drop by following them on social networks, and tune into BBC Introducing In The West and our show on Melksham Town Sound for exclusive previews of the new material.
