Banquet Records presents...BLACK FUTURES

18+ BRING ID

BAR TIL 1AM

The day after the release of their new album, Black Futures play at The Fighting Cocks.

Never Not Nothing will mark the debut full length album from the stomping and loud groove-fused rockers.The band were last in Kingston supporting Frank Carter at New Slang and they blew us away, we're delighted to see them return for their own headline show at Kingston's punkiest venue, The Fighting Cocks.

A collection of apocalyptic anthems emanating from a source of caustic melody and infectious distortion,Never Not Nothingis a further insight to their vision of a crumbling world, inhabited by a cast of random reprobates and shot through with a sardonic British humour: a devastating gathering of monumental, maximalist and magnificent music, laser-honed to conquer what’s left of the world.

Junkyard Choir // Matro Rancho // The Raven Chords

Bangers Embrace Presents and The Fighting Cocks Bar & Live Music Venue proudly present...

Junkyard Choir are back once again and if you haven't heard them, youre missing out. JYC have gone from a two piece to a nine-piece rock party! The band’s sound is deeply rooted in blues rock, soul, garage rock, grunge and punk and little classic rock! An explosion of sound you wont regret to witness!

In support we have Farnham based 70s rock n rollers Matro Rancho - an original sound which is honed from late 60s/early 70s rock n roll, reminiscent of bands like Free, James Gang and Grand Funk Railroad. Kingstons' The Raven Chords are a mournful Grunge/Americana rock band, boy/girl vocals with a Mark Lanegan via a dirtied up Giant Sand vibe. Cant go wrong!

Loose women, Girls, Boys, Guitars and fuckin' Noise!

“Anyone in the mood for a shot in the arm of thrashy punk that sounds like a hybrid of The Bronx, Motörhead, and The Hives? Well, good — because that’s what we have for you today!" - Need we say more?
Sweet Jonny
They ain't no strangers to The Fighting Cocks and we're well choiced to have them back again... A gutter garage rock band from a do-nothing town. Your new nightmare neighbours.

My Eyes Are Old And Bent, Grey Market & Bury The Gun

18+ BRING ID

BAR TIL 1AM

Writeup of My Eyes Are Old and Bent by Loud Unsigned (@LoudUnsigned): "Using savage screams, buzzy over-driven guitars + pounding drums, MEAOAB create a dissonant drama of pure punk expression. Occasionally, pianos, vocal harmonies + electronics make an appearance to supplement the sound. This adds an experimental edge; reminiscent of underground post hardcore groups.

As for production, it is rough + lo-fi providing a sense of urgency. Like the band are struggling to finish their songs but desperately have to; picking up whatever instruments they can to get the ideas down. It’s a sincere, primal expression that avoids being too melodramatic. Hopefully they can keep this sound alive + nurture it to reach new heights."
