Having just recently wrapped up an extensive European tour with Lacuna Coil, Switzerland's New Wave Of Folk Rock trio Cellar Darling are excited to announce that they will be hitting the road once again! The band left quite an impression on UK audiences when they made their London debut last year playing sold out shows with Delain on the ‘Danse Macabre Tour’, so it comes as great news that they’ll be returning for a run of shows across Ireland, Scotland and England in March/April. News on supports coming soon!
Of the upcoming tour, the band comments:
"We are beyond excited to announce our first headline tour visiting Ireland, Scotland and England! These are some of the most beautiful places in the world, and we feel a special connection to each of them. Ireland is Anna’s second homeland, Merlin’s year is never complete without his pilgrimage to the highlands and Isles - that’s where they produce our favourite drink too! And of course some of the most important places in rock music history. It is about time that we bring our music over for an extended visit, after the incredible welcome we received at our first show in London last year! We can’t wait to rock out with you all!"
- Anna, Ivo & Merlin

After releasing their current album ‘spin’ (stylized all in lower case) and playing last summer’s Reading and Leeds Festivals, Tigers Jaw will return to the UK in April for a fresh tour that includes their biggest London show to date at Bush Hall.
The dates are:
6th – London, Bush Hall
7th – Brighton, Bau Wow
8th – Manchester, Rebellion
10th – Dublin, Whelan’s
11th – Glasgow, Stereo
13th – Newcastle, The Cluny
14th – Leeds, Brudenell Social Club

Comprised of Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins, Tigers Jaw have gripped listeners and press across the globe with their candid compositions and alluring harmonies.
Recorded with producer and long-time collaborator Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA, ‘spin’ finds Walsh and Collins trading lead vocals which glow with sincerity on a collection of incredibly understated indie-pop classics. Tracks such as ‘Guardian’, ‘June’ and ‘Escape Plan’ shine on an album which exhibits the duo’s remarkable ability to use melody and introspection to capture the sentiments and complexities of a moment.
Pillow Queens recently released the mother of all catchy tunes in the form of ‘Favourite’, alongside the announcement of a new EP ‘State of The State’. Following the EP’s release (via Specialist Subject on 16th March), Pillow Queens will head off on tour around their native Ireland and the UK.
‘Favourite’ has also received a re-working in an acoustic video filmed by Pillow Queens, which showcases a delicately softer arrangement that packs no less of an emotional punch.

Despite the sunny disposition of Pillow Queens’ catchy melodies and rambunctious riffs, the songs found on ‘State of The State’ tend to have a darker undercurrent. Opener ‘Puppets’ is “a song about the frustration of trying to succeed in post-recession Ireland and the effect that has on mental health,” explains vocalist/guitarist/bassist Sarah Corcoran. Elsewhere on the EP, the band muse on emotional highs and lows, the inevitability of anxiety and paranoia.
Producer Peter Ashmore tapped into the wide-reaching references PQ threw at him, which included the likes of Hop Along, Yuck, Weezer, Manchester Orchestra and the Pixies, in order to attain a timeless feel befitting of the beautifully crafted songs. The artwork for the EP was brought to life by Nola Mellon and is inspired by the old Fallon’s maths times table book you used to have in primary school.
