Touring: Days of Worth Return to Mark 10th Anniversary of The Western Mechanism


Remember Days of Worth? The 5 piece rock act were signed to Visible Noise back in 2005 and they released a massively overlooked record called The Western Mechanism. In honour of the album’s 10th anniversary the band are reforming for a one-off show at The Fighting Cocks in Kingston on the 11th of July. Support will come from Freeze the Atlantic who’s members come from bands like Hundred Reasons, Reuben and Laruso. This is a show you will not want to miss.

Touring: Caïna Announce Full Band London Show


Normally a one-man black metal behemoth, Caïna will play a full band show at the Camden Black Heart in honour of his 10th anniversary under the Caïna name.

Caïna is also taking set-list requests so if you want to hear the band play a specific song from their back catalogue you can head over to Caïna’s Facebook page and request up to 3 songs. In addition to all this the show will also be filmed for a future Caïna release.
