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!
