If you want to get yourselves some cheap tickets for the upcoming first ever Hellfire Club in May, then you bloody well better do it today – it’s the last chance you’ll have to pick them up at the discounted early-bird date.
Failsafe are a melodic rock band based in and around Preston, UK, whose current line up has been together since 2005, although the foundations of the band were laid in 2000. So far they have released two albums (What We Are Today in 2005 and The Truth Is… in 2008) which were welcomed with a huge amount of excellent reviews across the UK and Europe, major UK festival appearances, a great deal of national radio/tv airplay. Even managing to appear in the hugely popular UK sitcom ‘The Inbetweners’ Read more on Last.fm
After their large-scale shindigs in London and Birmingham last year, Hellfire Festival has announced it’s first event for 2010: The Hellfire Club. This time they’re taking over Club Revolution in Peterborough for 3 days of the first in a series of smaller-in-scale but just-as-fucking-loud events.
Like all Southerners, Thrash Hits looks upon the North of England with a mixture of fascination, fear and despair. The last time we visited the North, we saw a woman shitting in a field while eating a raw onion – a mental image encapsulating all those feelings at once. Luckily Preston lads Failsafe didn’t do any of these things when we cornered them in the Cro Bar to talk about their upcoming appearance at the first ever UK Sonisphere Festival.
Are we really half way through 2009 already? Apparently so. Feeling confused about the six months just gone, and the six left to go? Thrash Hits is here to guide you – well, through the next four weeks, at least.
For those of you lucky enought to live alongside Thrash Hits in London town, tonight sees the launch of Someone’s Yelling Fire, a new punk/hardcore/metal/screamo/emo night at the recently-reopened Highbury Garage. Get there early enough and you’ll be able to catch live sets from The Xcerts, Save Your Breath and Flood of Red. Get their later, and you get to see Thrash Hits staffers collapse at the bar following an excess of beers. Double trouble! And just a fiver to boot.
This is the new video from Failsafe for their latest single, ‘Hope’, released on 03 November 2008.
Failsafe’s second album The Truth Is… is released on Smalltown Records on 10 November 2008.
