Heavy Pop presents:
ANIMAL HOUSE + SELF HELP (CO-HEADLINE SHOW)
ANIMAL HOUSE + Self Help
Entry Requirements: 18+
- Animal House -
"...they utilise bright intersections of upbeat melodies to gloriously uplifting effect" - The Line Of Best Fit
Animal House are touring their debut album 'Premium Mediocre' - a celebration of mediocrity. The wonder of cheesy chips, curry houses and instant coffee. The beautiful simplicity in white shirts and black jeans. Call your friends, come have a boogie.
This will not be a life-changing event. But it will be very fun.
- Self Help -
Oxford garage thrash poppers Self Help are co-headliners on this show. Self Help’s last single ‘Get On With It’ was Nightshift magazines no.1 track of 2018. The band have been busy touring, writing and recording new material since then and are set to release ‘Milkshake’, a disco/punk reaction to the rise of nationalism and hatred, on Jan 31st.
ANIMAL HOUSE are an Aussie born 4 piece who in early 2014, packed up their belongings and headed for the shores of the UK.
Having found a home in the musical mecca of Brighton, the band quickly gathered momentum, playing shows alongside some of the city’s new breed of snarling rock acts. Their giddy brand of garage-rock is as infectious as it is fun and with the band's debut single "Sour" and B-Side "Heavy", heads started to turn instantly!
"Sour" received praise across the board from the likes of NME, DIY and Clash Magazine but this was only the start, as the band headed out on the road for a 10 date UK tour in October of 2014. The tour saw them hit audiences up and down the country with their energetic, captivating and catchy set list.
ANIMAL HOUSE then returned to the South for a headline support slot to fellow Australian, Courtney Barnett at Brighton's DRILL Festival. The show was a huge success and has gone on to earn ANIMAL HOUSE the title of "One To Watch for 2015" by BrightonsFinest.com
The band now head back into the studio to record their debut EP with Owen Morries, the man behind Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, The Verve and many more. The EP is set for release in the summer before the band then embark on a second tour this time heading out into Europe.
Keep your eyes and ears open and polish off those dancing shoes.. ANIMAL HOUSE are coming for you!
