Arcane Roots are the kind of band you should like if you like the clever-clever bits of Biffy Clyro (but not the nice-nice bits about Biffy Clyro) combined with the sharper bits of Muse (without the vibrato histrionics that annoy us about Muse). They’ve recently signed to PIAS, and next month they’re put out a mini album by the name of Left Fire. And to celebrate that fact, they’ve given us a pair of tickets to give away to their Kerrang! Awards Show gig at the Camden Barfly on 05 June 2012. You’d have to be pretty lazy not to click the ‘Read More’ button and to enter our competition to win them. Unless you live somewhere that isn’t near London, we suppose.

Whatever. It’s free gig tickets. Stop complaining and enter the competition!

Watch the video to ‘Habibty’ by Arcane Roots:

Anyway, to be in with a chance of winning the tickets, all you have to do is watch Arcane Roots’ video for ‘Habibty’ – which just so happens to be the lead single taken from Left Fire – and answer the insultingly-easy question below:

The shape that makes up Arcane Roots' logo is a....?

This competition is dead. Go click Competitions and find another one and win some other shit.

See? Told you it was easy. You’ve got till Wednesday next week to hand over your answer and an email address we can contact you on. Usual rules apply – no multiple entries, you must be over 14 years old as that’s the rules set down by the venue, you must be able to make the show in question on 05 June 2012, and our decision, RE: who wins, is final.

While you twiddle your thumbs and wait for us to email you to tell you that you’ve won (maybe), why not watch the interview we did with the band at Sonisphere last year? It all ended a bit abruptly because of the 2 minute silence for Paul Grey that Sonisphere were having…errr…happened, and we’re no so dickish as to carry on mucking about during a respectful gesture to a deceased fellow metaller.

Watch Thrash Hits TV: Arcane Roots @ Sonisphere Festival 2011:

Left Fire by Arcane Roots will be released via PIAS on 11 June 2012, both as a limited-edition physical release, and a non-limited (obviously) digital version. You can also catch the band at a number of festivals and shows over the summer – go check out the band’s official Facebook page for more details.
