In case you missed the news earlier this week, we’re teaming up with Songkick Detour to try to bring some of the best bands in the world to London. Some of them have split up (but occasionally threaten to get back together), some of them have reformed but just not made the trip over to the UK yet, and some of them have never been to these shores. This week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist will hopefully remind you why you need to pledge to see these bands.
1. An American post-hardcore band formed in the Eastside suburbs of Seattle, Washington in 1997. The quintet released five albums during their 10 year existence and spawned numerous side-projects along the way. All of the band members have gone on to professional careers with other bands. They officially broke up in November 2007.
2. Ukrainian Iron Maiden Cover Band, active since 2010. Read more on Last.fm

We saw the power of Songkick Detour back in February when, in conjunction with our big sister, DrownedinSound, Desaparecidos played their first UK show. It was impressive and it was powered by the crowd. They wanted to see Desaparecidos play live in London and they put their money where their mouths were. We want to do the same thing with some bands that we like.
