– STREAM HAUX’S ADDICITVE NEW SINGLE ‘TOUCH
– UK TOUR DATES IN MAY, INCLUDING THE GREAT ESCAPE
Settled in the space between dreamy folk and electronic melancholy – Haux is the smoky-eyed silhouette of Woodson Black. Growing up in the Berkshires, the photographer-turned-musician found his voice while wandering the quiet woods and rural landscapes. He narrated life through film photographs, developing a pastoral aesthetic that would go on to inspire Haux. 
Haux has now shared a new single ‘Touch’, a dream-folk number drenched in emotive vocals and lyrics. ‘Touch’ engenders a sense of longing with its hauntingly poetic lyrics, “caught in the cold of when we met, with the heaviest hearts we were a silhouette”. The minimalist production on the song serves to catapult the raw and misty vocals, creating the feeling of a stripped down track that simultaneously feels very cinematic.
Listen to ‘Touch’ on Soundcloud: soundcloud.com/hauxofficial/touch
Speaking about ‘Touch’, Woodson shared: “I’ve always been drawn to the past. There’s something about it that’s both set in stone yet still awake. Touch brings the past into the present. It’s binds the details of someone you seldom remember with the nights that you always forget.”

Be sure to catch Haux in the UK in May as he plays The Lexington in London and Sound Control in Manchester, and makes his debut at The Great Escape. Full listings as follows (UK dates in bold).

– UNVEILS NEW SONG ‘IMMIGRANT BOOGIE
– UK TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
Immigrant Boogie marks the first new material from Ghostpoet since the release of his third and much lauded, Mercury-nominated Shedding Skin album in 2015. The track also heralds news of a full UK / Irish tour in the Autumn – see below for full itinerary.
Swathed in post-punk virtuosity, Immigrant Boogie is a narrative only too pertinent in 2017.
Ghostpoet aka Obaro Ejimiwe explains:
“It’s a first person account of a difficult journey across borders, partly intended to ask those who have questioned the arrival of refugees in recent times what they would do in the same situation.
The song is written in two halves – the first hopeful for a brighter future, while the second sees hope snatched away by forces beyond the control of the storyteller.
There is an important story to be told there, but I wrote the song in a way that aims to capture a broader human truth: that while we are all working for a better life for ourselves, we have to accept that we are not in control of the outcome”
Listen to ‘Immigrant Boogie’ on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7OkcTaMBrY

This is the first track to emerge from various sessions recorded over the past few months in Obaro’s hometown London.
Featuring Charlie Steen, drafted in from South London’s up and comers Shame on guest vocals and assisted by Leo Abrahams (Wild Beasts, Frightened Rabbit) on guitar and production duties, ‘Immigrant Boogie’ marks a stunning return.
Ghostpoet has produced three critically acclaimed albums in his career thus far, of which two were Mercury nominated. All three projects have received widespread recognition from critics and playlists alike.
‘Immigrant Boogie’ is yet another addition to an increasingly versatile catalogue and testament to an artist who always strives to stimulate and provoke.
Since his most recent offering ‘Shedding Skin’, Obaro has been busy performing live and writing. Noteworthy appearances include a memorable set at BST in Hyde Park, as well as a collaboration with Massive attack on the track Come Near Me.
GHOSTPOET LIVE DATES:
Oct 24th, DUBLIN, Button Factory
Oct 25th, LIVERPOOL, Invisible Wind Factory

YOUTH KILLED IT
RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR
“WHAT HAPPENED”

DEBUT ALBUM “MODERN BOLLOTICS” OUT ON 12TH MAY

Youth Killed It have released a new video for the single “What Happened”, taken from their upcoming album “Modern Bollotics” out on 12th May 2017 via Rude Records. Physical pre-orders are available here. For the digital version, click here.

Watch the video for “What Happened” here: https://youtu.be/IAjOHoOO8wk“The track and video are a story about coming of age and growing up. Suddenly one day you’re laying in bed, thinking about where the last 10 years have gone and you realize that leaving adolescence behind is the single most significant thing to happen to you” explains frontman Jack Murphy. 

“You go from worrying about having the coolest trainers (the ones with the lights were the s**t in my opinion) or who’s got the rarest Pokemon card, to juggling responsibilities like money, rent and bills. As a kid, having £50 felt like you were an absolute baller. You could do anything you wanted. As an adult, there is that realisation you pay much more than £50 per month, on tax alone. Some of us were lucky enough to have a massive group of friends at school that you would see every day. Now, you have a select few who you can only see on the rare occasion you’re all available. We all take our younger years for granted and spend the rest of our lives imagining what it would be like for it to be that simple again.”

The band will be supporting their new record on a UK tour, so make sure you catch the band on one of the following dates:

11.05 – London, Boston Music Room (supporting The One Hundred)
13.05 – Southampton, Hanger Farm Arts Centre
14.05 – Manchester, Satans Hollow
15.05 – Leeds, The Packhorse
16.05 – Leicester, The Shed
17.05 – Norwich, Epic Studios
18.05 – Birmingham, Subside

Firing up your imagination and getting creative is a big part of the Camp Bestival experience.

So, delve into the innovative and inspirational and get creative and be free! And once your inner-artist is content, grab your dancing shoes and join us for record breaking disco ball action, lots more DJ love and fantastic live music with some proper pop stars too, from 27-30 July at Lulworth Castle.

Rob da Bank says: “The Camp Bestival story continues to hot up with Anne-Marie and Reverend and the Makers joining the party. We are also hiring a ruddy huge crane to bring you the World’s Largest Disco Ball, and not just with any old DJs, but with a stellar cast of late night party starters from Sara Cox and the Inspiral Carpets’ Clint Boon to our mate Bez and a brand-new teen night too… see you at the castle”.

He’s the king of kids’ TV when it comes to things to make and do, so we are super-excited to announce that Mister Maker will be making his debut at this year’s Camp Bestival. A wellspring of inventiveness and a master of colour and shapes, Mister Maker is a sure-fire source of inspiration when it comes to creative play and we can wait to see him.

We are also delighted to reveal The Bear & the Piano live in the Dingly Dell. Winner of 2016’s Waterstones Children’s Book Prize for Best Illustrated Book, don’t miss this series of magical storytelling sessions, craft and musical workshops based on David Litchfield’s beautiful story of friendship.

We’ll also have jaw-dropping spectacles including our amorous automaton, The Love Bot, the return of the World’s Biggest Bouncy Castle and the Bestival Inflatable Church & Wedding Disco. And there will be craftsmanship and wood carving galore in Spinney Hollow, bugtastic acrobatics as The Insect Circus presents the Greatest Show on Earth, and the ramshackle wonders of Caravanserai.

You’ll be able to build your magnum opus and design the ultimate glam get up when you get involved with Art Town: Pop Stars & Rock Stars Creations. And you can marvel at Marawa’s Majorettes and join in off-the-wall fun and games with the Bestival Bluecoats. With so much more to explore throughout the weekend make sure you join in with all the creativity.

As part of our tenth anniversary celebrations we are thrilled that one of our biggest and best ever record-breaking creations, The World’s Largest Disco Ball will be coming to Camp Bestival. But that’s not all, we’ll have uninhibited entertainment at a brand new dance destination bathed in our mirrored globe’s glittering light with a series of ace Big Discos.

So, don’t miss our daily Kids’ Disco every evening, with Rob da Bank & friends getting the tots rocking. And there will be some proper late night disco action for mums and dads too. Friday night’s Big Disco action will come courtesy of Sara Cox presents Just Can’t Get Enough 80s with a luxuriance of big-haired dancefloor gems, and Inspiral Carpets’ Clint Boon with his Big Boonarmy Bash playing hits from the cream of the indie scene. Saturday will see misunderstood broadcasting genius Barry Peters (AKA The Cuban Brothers’ main man Miguel) taking yacht rock to improbable new heights with Halifax Hospital Radio Live, while Sunday’s refulgent rave-up will have us throwing shapes to Happy Monday’s legend Bez and his Indie Disco to Hacienda House Set. And making sure there’s dancefloor action for everyone, we’ll also have a Teen Big Disco Party – featuring grime, hip-hop, rock and pop with some special guest DJs.

Upping Camp Bestival’s tenth anniversary dance game big time, we’ll also have booty shaking sets from Eats Everything who will be going on an old skool tip, bass-led grooves from Shadow Child and Greco Roman Soundsystem, while hardcore behaviour is to be expected from Raindance who will be winding up the whistle posse with Altern-8, Daniel Billy Bunter, Shades of Rhythm, DJ Faydz, Liquid, Rachel Wallace and 2 Bad Mice. Plus, we’ll have hip-swinging manoeuvres from Lady Jane Bongo, Jim8track, DJ Dapper Dan and Dr DJ & Bollywood Dancers.

She’s queen of the charts having just spent nine weeks on the top spot with Rockabye her collaboration with Clean Bandit, so we are over the moon to reveal that Anne-Marie will be helping us to celebrate Camp Bestival’s tenth anniversary! An undeniable superstar, Anne Marie has a history of blowing crowds away whenever she plays, so hold on to your hats when she hits the Castle stage for what will be an unmissable set of sublime pop music! And ensuring there’s plenty more live music across the weekend there will also be performances from Sheffield quintet Reverend and The Makers, sea shanty super stars Skinny Lister, tastemakers’ top pick Louis Berry, Brit-reggae quartet The Skints, The Voice star Laura Oakes, exotic psychedelia from Flamingods, the veritable heart and soul of the 80s T’Pau and Liverpool’s finest The Christians.

DEBUT NEW TRACK ZERO FUCKS GIVEN
WITH VOLCOM.COM

VIA ANOTHER CENTURY RECORDS 
PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE NOW

The Picturebooks are excited to announce that they have teamed up with Volcom, one of the leading lifestyle brands for skate, swimwear, snowboarding and more, to release a brand new track titled ‘Zero Fucks Given‘.

Check out the track here:
http://www.volcom.com/news/listen-the-picturebooks-new-song-zero-fucks-given/

Skating is a passion for both members of The Picturebooks, who met at a skate park, leading to the band’s formation. This is the duo’s first piece of new music since Imaginary Horse (2014), and is the debut track off their forthcoming album, ‘Home is a Heartache’, set for release on March 10, 2017 via Another Century Records.

Guitarist/Vocalist Fynn Claus Grabke explains of the track, “Like every other song on this album, ‘Zero Fucks Given‘ was recorded in our motorcycle garage next to our studio. We played the music live with just two room microphones to utilize the natural reverb of the stony garage, and later overdubbed the vocals in the same manner. We were looking for some additional percussion for that specific song and found that the huge old and rusty chain that we lock up our motorcycles with was probably perfect. We set up a little wooden platform, and Philipp would just drop the chain in a certain style to create a great pumping percussion. The song has a lot to do with the way we live our lives – we created everything we are and do ourselves. We wouldn’t have it any other way, zero fucks given!”

The German duo — featuring Fynn Claus Grabke [vocals, guitar] and Philipp Mirtschink [drums] — performs enticing blues-saturated heavy rock, with Fynn playing on obscure vintage guitars he bought from thrift shops around the world, while Philipp beats a drum set that consists of the largest possible drums that he hits with heavy duty felt beaters. The set has no cymbals whatsoever and instead includes a few self-made percussion instruments with huge chains, bells, and more.

‘Home is a Heartache’ will serve as the band’s sophomore release and Another Century label-debut. The 14-track album was recorded in the band’s garage, where they regularly refurbish and repair motorcycles and choppers. The album captures a raw, rich, and real energy evoking the room’s natural reverb, industrial aura, and spiritual spark.

Pre-orders for Home is a Heartache are available now and fans who pre-order the album through iTunes or Amazon will receive an instant download of ‘Zero Fucks Given’.

Rob da Bank says: “There’s been so much talk of musical icons recently and I’m very proud that we’ll be presenting one of the most legendary figures in song-writing, music production and, maybe, the ultimate anti-pop star, Brian Wilson. Having made so many incredible records with the Beach Boys, Brian Wilson’s Pet Sounds is a real solo foray into psychedelic rock, introspective lyric writing and a beautiful wall of sound concept album that still blows people away 50 years on. Whether you’re a stalwart Wilson supporter or maybe it’s the first time you’ve heard his name, I hope you’ll be there in the moment for the Sunday headliner in his full majesty”.

Hallowed as one of the all-time greats in the pantheon of pop music, we’re giddy with excitement to reveal that due to phenomenal public demand in the UK, Brian Wilson returns one last time to present ‘Pet Sounds’ in its entirety, plus his greatest hits. Universally hailed as one of pop music’s most important recordings, Brian will be bringing his majestic masterpiece to Camp Bestival for a headline sunset performance, captivating the crowds with intricate harmonies and breath taking melodies. An absolute must-see as part of an epic Sunday finale that will feature Leftfield bringing the main stage to a close before our fireworks spectacular, Brian Wilson’s genius and his most influential musical treasure are sure to be a historic part of our tenth anniversary celebrations.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, we’ll also have unmissable appearances from BBC Sound of 2017 top tip, Ray BLK, pop chanteuse Kate Nash, Camp Bestival heroes & rum-funk faves The Cuban Brothers, and chart topper and former Oliver Heldens, Wilkinson & Rudimental diva, Becky Hill. There will be more glorious commotion with Morrisey’s greatest songs getting some Mexican spice courtesy of Mexrrissey, the ultimate Mancunian tribute band The Smiths LTD making a real difference, dancefloor sluggers Dub Pistols getting their skank on, audacious turntablist DJ Yoda getting his game on, the King goes grunge with Elvana: Elvis fronted Nirvana, and new wave funk powerhouse The Blockheads giving us reasons to be cheerful.

We’ll also have Norman Jay MBE hitting the decks and delivering into the good times like only he can, and amazing music from Los Pacaminos featuring Paul Young, Raghu Dixit, Circus Raj, Disney Rascal, Funky Little Choir, Indian Queens, Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band, The Shellac Collective and The Ska Vengers.

Icon Travels With PETA to Refugee Camp in France

Dunkirk, France – PETA took a special ambassador to a Dunkirk

camp today: Pamela Anderson, who delivered warm vegan hats and gloves, along with hundreds of animal-themed activity books and coloured pencils, to children who have been forced to flee their home countries.

The trilingual educational activity books (in English, Farsi, and Arabic and French, Farsi, and Arabic) are full of child-friendly facts about animals, pictures, quizzes, and other activities, allowing children to improve their language skills as well as their knowledge of other living beings in a fun way. PETA has donated hundreds of the colouring books to refugee day centres across the UK and France,

“As a mother and a longtime animal advocate, Pamela Anderson has a huge heart for those in need”, says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “She was eager to deliver vegan knitwear and educational activity books that will provide a little warmth and comfort to these children who have lost so much.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way” – named Anderson its 2016 Person of the Year for her efforts to encourage vegan eating, for her opposition to circuses that use animals, and for speaking out about fur, among many other actions for animals.
