New Fundraiser Is Active Helping Underground UK Bands & Their Crews Who Have Had Tour Recently Cancelled

For the tours that never came to be, the current COVID-19 pandemic is affecting a lot of people in the music world in different ways. For bands and their crews, the inability to head out on tour has put a lot of people in difficult situations without an income.

Now, a fundraiser has been started to help artists who have had their upcoming tours cancelled.

The Tours That Never Were has been created to help independent and Underground UK-based bands and crew as well as various charities in the form of a brand new art print, t-shirt and tote bag.

Bands on the design include Lizzy Farrall, Ithaca, Palm Reader and Holding Absence and more.

All profits from the sale of the items will be split equally between the artists who’re signed up to use as they see fit with a number of them asking for their share to go to their charities of choice which includes Music Venue Trust and NHS Together to name a couple.

Here’s a look at what you’re getting.

Music Video Roundup 25/01/18

It’s that time of the week again! It’s time for another music video roundup! Those unfamiliar to the series of posts which come out every Friday, I look for ten of my favourite recently released music videos for the audience’s viewing pleasure and compose a list for everyone to enjoy! Let’s get straight into things with Puppy. Their newest record just dropped today and this track for ‘The Goat’ was their last before fans got to listen to the entire thing.

 

Cane Hill have just released a brand new EP, which is something definitely more toned down than their usual hard-hitting material but, it’s something which is just as amazing. With that, the four-piece from New Orleans has released a video for their opening track, “86d – No Escort”

 

Moving across to Oakland, those Punks in SWMRS are starting their 2019 by giving fans a sneak peek into their upcoming Third record, ‘Berkeley’s On Fire’ with their latest video, ‘Trashbag Baby’.

 

Now, something a little more alternative as we go for Follower whom have just released their new video in the form of ‘Voices’, which comes from the bands upcoming 6-track EP, ‘Against The Ropes’.

 

Ahead of this band’s upcoming record, ‘The Language Of Injury’, newcomers Ithaca have a new video for ‘Impulse Crush’.

 

I do enjoy having all sorts of videos in these lists, and I’m going to switch it up for this next video from One Ok Rock. The band were on a tour of Japan in October last year and the one thing this band does magnificently is providing the atmosphere of their shows and you can experience it for yourself in their live video for their latest single, ‘Stand Out Fit In’ below.

 

Moving on, next we have Tiny Moving Parts. The Emo/Post Hardcore trio has recently released a new limited edition two-song 7″ and now, the double single record has a video to ‘For The Sake Of Brevity’

 

Now for an artist who has been teasing for a while now! This is, of course, Yungblud and his new track for ‘Loner’. His website  http://www.idontwannabealoner.com/ had been teasing everyone all week until the release of the track.

 

For With Confidence, they went all supernatural for their latest single off their 2018 record, ‘Love & Loathing’. For the video of ‘Icarus’, the video shows a typical modern love story, ending in a boy turning into stone.

 

And for the last video, it comes from As It Is. In the last week, the band confirmed that long-time touring member Ronnie Ish would be coming aboard as a permanent member of the band and for the second announcement, they dropped a brand new live video for ‘The Fire, The Dark’ which was filmed at their biggest headlining show to date at London’s Kentish Town Forum.

And that’s it for another week of the music video roundup! Don’t forget to check back next week for another ten of the best recent music videos.
