Citizen Fish are back on the road!

A year on from 2011′s tour, the excellent Citizen Fish have confirmed they’ll be back bombing around the UK once again this autumn. This time supporting The Levellers on a total of 14 dates you’ll be sure to be able to catch these punks somewhere near you!

Hailing from Bath and featuring Subhumans alumni and current members alike, the ska/punk team boast somewhat of a pedigree. It’s only too right that they’ve teamed up with the Levellers for this next venture around the UK!

If you can’t wait that long, Citizen Fish will be playing a few UK dates, (including the King amongst independent punk festivals- Rebellion), as a welcome prelude to their November Tour.

William Elliott Whitmore’s mammoth tour

Our old compadre William Whitmore is on the road again.  A new batch of tour dates just added to Mister Whitmore’s site seem to suggest some form of musical pilgrimage is afoot. With just shy of 30 dates between now and November he’ll be roaming from the East to the West coast as well as a fair few places in between. The latter half of the tour will see support coming from the Oklahoma songstress, Samantha Crain, rounding up with an appearance at the Harvest Music Festival in November.

For those of you lamenting this huge US tour and lack of European dates, William will be coming over to the UK to play at the End of the Road festival at the end of August – so we suggest you get yourselves along to that!

NoMeansNo are back with exclusive UK tour dates!

Yes you heard right, the mighty Canadian trio otherwise known as NoMeansNo are set to land once again in Blighty this coming October. A compact tour of just three UK dates means that this is probably one to get on fast…

Through their impressive 30-odd years of existence, NoMeansNo have managed to garner their cult following through relentless touring and recording yet this UK jaunt appears to be the first time they’ve made it up to the North West to date. So if the fact that there’s such a limited number of shows wasn’t enough to tempt you out from under your rock, the prospect of touring history may well be! All we can say over here at Southern is go, go GO! before we beat you to the tickets..

October 4th – Camden Underworld, London
October 5th – Kazimier, Liverpool
October 6th – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds

Tickets are available now!
