Fast moving Brit tunesters “Reaper In Sicily” continue their rise with the launch of their new album ‘Islands’, out Monday 10th June through all national outlets.
Packing together the infectious wizardry and guile of The Used and Kids In Glass Houses fused with the muscular vigour of Rise Against, Reaper In Sicily have produced a sound that will blow your face right off. The South Wales riff beasts are equipped with the tools to ensure that they will explode this year!
Formed in 2009, soon after introducing themselves to the scene Reaper in Sicily won best unsigned live act by Kerrang! Magazine. The self-proclaimed ‘Power pop’ five-some then went on to sign a record deal with Search and Destroy Records and Raw Power Management. The band’s first single ‘We Are The Show’ received widespread rotation on TV screens throughout the nation, and the record received extensive critical acclaim, including radio airplay on BBC Radio One.
Sadly though, in March 2010, Matthew Jenkins (guitarist) was diagnosed with leukaemia, and the band were instantly placed on a hiatus until the guitarist was well enough to play again. Reaper returned later that year and promptly released two new EPs, appeared at both the Reading and Leeds festivals, and clinched support slots for everyone from Kids In Glass Houses, The Subways, Max Raptor, Attack! Attack!, Mallory Knox, Hawthorne Heights, Fightstar, The Xcerts, Straight Lines, I Spy Strangers and Evarosa, to Hildamay, and many many more.
Now armed with their explosive debut album ‘Islands’, which was recorded by Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend & Kids In Glass Houses), the highly-rated five-piece are set to stamp their name firmly on the scene. The album is a prominent piece of modern high energy rock. From its captivating opener ‘50’, to the aptly titled ‘Chuck Norris Got A Chainsaw’ which grabs a hold of your particulars, through to their new video single ‘Horizons’, and onwards to the majestic title track ‘Islands’, the band have sculptured a record that lavishes pounding riffery, soaring melodies, and earnest energy to the listener. With a full UK tour sketched out for the early part of the summer, the band are poised and ready for dizzy heights!

GET OFF MY SHOES release ‘Let’s Not Rush Out And Tell The World’, on 1st April


Get Off My Shoes Online Promo PicturePacked to the nines with luscious melodies and bouncy riffs, Belgium Alt-rockers ‘Get Off My Shoes’ are braced for a full assault of the UK this Spring. The band release their stunning new EP ‘Let’s Not Rush Out And Tell The World’, on Monday 1st April through Thanks But No Thanks Records.
With echoes of Weezer, Bloc Party, and Foals, Get Off My Shoes have created an infectious sound that merges engaging synth-laden pop with off-the-hook rock. The result is an alluring, non-pretentious ‘indie’ rock with true depth.

Jonas is aided and abetted by Ziggy Van Wallendael (Drums / Samples), Jasper Willemen (Synth/ Backing Vocals), Stijn Debontridder (Guitars) and lastly, Glenn Van Criekingen (Bass / Backing Vocals). After rigorous set-sculpting throughout the majority of 2010, the freshly formed five piece soon hit the road and have now played over one hundred European shows, opening for the likes of The Subways, The Get Up Kids, Joyce Manor, and Apologies I Have None, to name a few.
The rising Euro tunesters are now set to nationally release their debut EP ‘Let’s Not Rush Out And Tell The World (LNROATTW) to a UK audience. With feel-good contagious cuts like ‘Dead Of Night’ ( ) and ‘We’re Going Down But We Don’t Care’, through to the sweeping and supremely melodic ‘Autumn’, and their previous single ‘I Was Told A Lie Once’ ( ), the rising Belgian upstarts are surely poised to transcend across the channel by making a colossal impression in 2013!
