We’ve been fans of Blood Command for a couple of years now. They’re part of the Norwegian mafia that’s brought us the likes of Kvelertak, Wolves Like Us and Man The Machetes in recent times but these guys appear to be stepping up their onslaught of the UK over recent months. Interesting…
6 things we learnt when we saw Blood Command in Camden:
Flood Of Red
Leaving Everything Behind
19 October 2009
by Chris Cope
Scotland is renowned for producing many fine things, but metal bands certainly aint one of them. Sure, Biffy Clyro flirted with it in their pre-stadia days, and the chaps in Mendeed briefly threatened to impact the UK rock landscape before meekly disbanding with all but a whimper. Next up to try and tartan-ify our ears are Flood Of Red, a six strong group from up near Glasgow.
Not content with giving away their last single as a free download, the Glasgow post-hardcore tearaways, Flood of Red, have teamed up with Thrash Hits to give away a copy of their latest single, ‘A Place Before The End’. Not only that, but they’re also tossing in tickets for you and a mate to catch them at some point on their forthcoming tour, and a whole load of merch to boot.
Enter Shikari have announced they are to release a new single, ‘We Can Breathe In Space, They Just Don’t Want Us To Escape’ on 3 November 2008.
Their extensive Autumn tour will see tour supports from a number of smaller bands from the ES family. They turned down one band who was offering to pay £15,000 for the privilege of supporting the St Albans crew. That’s what we call integrity.
The tour will visit many smaller towns and cities that might normally be neglected, as well as no less than four London club shows. They’re going to be a bit special.

‘We Can Breathe…’ will be the band’s first release since June 2007 and will be released through their own label, Ambush Reality.
Enter Shikari will begin recording their second album – due for release in Spring 2009 – as soon as they get home from this mammoth tour.
