After patiently waiting for months and months and then some more months, Lawson finally announced a few North American tour dates at the end of 2012. It should come as no surprise seeing as how we are having another “British Invasion” in the states and fan girls are jumping in on the frenzy in droves. Don’t believe me? Well, even though most people in America have no idea who Lawson is they still managed to sell out their two dates here. You know, the dates in LA and NYC. Pretty impressive. Continue Reading

British pop-rock band, Lawson released their video for “Learn To Love Again” this month. This is the fourth single off of their debut album, Chapman Square and just like the others I love this song. The video is a lot darker than most of their other videos, but otherwise it’s simple. The band has had their last three singles hit the top 10 on the UK charts and now Lawson is getting ready to embark on their mini-U.S. tour in January. For tour dates, go here.
China Rats, made up of Graeme Thomson (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Luke Smith (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Jedidiah Allcock (Bass/Vocals) and George Riley (Drums), got their big break when they got to play the European festival, BENICASSIM. Initially asked to play a smaller stage the day before, they were bumped up to the main stage when Bat for Lashes cancelled. This was a success for the band and the festival alike.
The rock band formed in Leeds in 2011 and released their debut EP To Be Like I on Once Upon A Time Records in UK. Now China Rats is set to release their U.S. debut single in March 2013 followed by a performance at SXSW. Not bad for a band who have only been around for a year.
Their track, “To Be Like I”, is definitely an attention getter. Watch the video for it below:
These UK bands keep coming out of nowhere lately. Here is The City Calls with their music video for “Meet in the Middle”. They remind me of one of my favs, Forever the Sickest Kids and classic New Found Glory. So if you’re fans of those bands you might want to see what these guys are all about.
