When And Where To Catch Bands From Slam Dunk Festival 2021 Next Part 1

Wow. Slam Dunk Festival is done and dusted for the first time in two years after a few pushbacks but it finally happened! We’ll get to the actual review of things in another post because there was just so much emotion on the day, I’m still finding the words for it all.

But now, there’s a question of what’s next for the bands that played the festival less than a week ago? That’s what this series of posts is for! We’re going band by band to see where and when in the UK they’re going to play next as well as any music they’ve released recently.

The Bottom Line.

Slaying the Main Stage for the first time ever at the festival and with the latest tracks ‘Long Time Coming’ as well as ‘Broke’, the bands stock is at an all time high and will continue to rise!

In the last few days the quartet released the details of what will be the bands only headlining show for 2021 which will take play on October 10th at The Camden Assembly in London.

Roam

The Eastbourne quartet had a hell of a time with all the crowd surfers as the second band to take centre stage this year. Let’s just say they know how to put on a show!

At the time of writing, currently there’s been no announcements of any upcoming tours or music but I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s an announcement soon and if there’s any new music going, it’ll be pretty good to say the least!

HelloGoodbye

After setting off the Main Stage to some well received applause, the festival faves are set to tour the US up until the second half of October. In addition there’s been no word of new music but the latest release came in the form of the 2020 single, ‘God Only Knows’.

As It Is

Wherever you turn, As It Is seem to be up to something, whether it’s a show, Music Video or a new music release.

Just in time for Slam Dunk this year, they managed to do two of those things playing warm up shows in Brighton and Swansea which I heard were absolute carnage! Also, they dropped the double headed ‘ILY, How Are You? / IDC, I Can’t Take It”.

So I guess that could possibly mean a new record is on the way? I’ll let everyone know if and when that information becomes available but there is a new music video coming later today at 3:45PM!

As for touring news, there is none announced in the near future but if their activity is anything to go by, I’d assume maybe something soon? I’ve got my fingers crossed for that one!

Creeper

Another British band with a lot on their plate is the ever fantastic Creeper. With their latest record ‘American Noir’ which dropped earlier in the year providing a fair bit of new material, they’re keen to get everything out in the live show format with their upcoming December 2021 run of shows set to go off in amazing fashion which will act as a sort of Slam Dunk Festival 2021 reunion with Holding Absence, Wargasm and Static Dress all set for support slots on the tour.

Here’s the dates.

December 2021

15th – O2 Forum Kentish Town, London

16th – Concorde 2, Brighton – SOLD OUT

17th – O2 Institute, Birmingham – SOLD OUT

19th – Garage, Glasgow – SOLD OUT

20th – O2 Ritz, Manchester – SOLD OUT

21st – Stylus, Leeds

We Are The In Crowd

After six years since their last UK show, it was emotional to say the least to be watching We Are The In Crowd once again. With that being said will we ever see them again? The short answer is we’re not sure.

As far as anyone knows, this is the last time we’ll see the band as they are because there’s no new music, tour dates or announcements posted and their socials are a little bleak. However they did post a message to their Instagram account which you can view below.

Mayday Parade

Another band who absolutely got the crowd going were the ever impressive Mayday Parade.

With the band releasing ‘Bad At Love’ last month in time for the festival shenanigans, there was plenty to be buzzed about for this bands set.

At the moment, they’re on tour with Microwave until the end of the month with some other dates sprinkled

State Champs

Right so these US faves have been all over the place at the moment! They’ve released two new tracks, ‘Just Sound’ & ‘Outta My Head’ to rave reviews from fans where they did perform both tracks at the festival!

Waterparks

Hitting up the UK because we just love them so much, Waterparks had to come across to cover Leeds and Reading after a few of the bands had to drop out due to Covid-19 restrictions. That meant they had plenty of warm ups (including a SOLD OUT Key Club show in Leeds) before being the penultimate band to play at this years SDF.

Now the trio have got a lot of shows before they make their way back to the UK for their rescheduled dates for 2022 in June of next year and there’s a lot!

But nevertheless, here’s their rescheduled dates you’ll be waiting for.

Don Broco

Main Stage headliners Don Broco put on a huge display at the closing of both dates of this years festival and currently have a new record on its way!

Sadly their upcoming record, ‘Amazing Things’ got pushed back to October 22nd but it’s going to happen!

Now this means the in-store signings have been pushed back and will be rescheduled but the dates haven’t been confirmed as of yet.

The bands full statement can be read below.


“Hey guys, we’ve got some important news to share with you regarding the upcoming release of our album ‘Amazing Things’. We’ve been told this week that due to Covid related vinyl delays, we have no choice but to delay the release date to 22 October.

We want everyone to be able to experience ‘Amazing Things’ all at the same time and are gutted we have to wait a little longer, but promise it’s going to be worth it. Thank you so much to everyone who’s pre-ordered the album so far.

Unfortunately, this means our in-store signings at HMV won’t go ahead. We understand that HMV will be in contact directly with any fans who were planning to come. Our Banquet Records show at Pryzm in Kingston will be rescheduled, news to follow.

This has even us the opportunity to restock some of the sold out and low stock vinyl variants, including the Manchester Super Reds special edition back on our store now. Thanks so much for your understanding & super watch out for the Uber video coming this week x”
