It’s that time of year again. The Middle Ones and Ace Bushy Striptease are heading out on tour again.
The Middle Ones play quiet/loud lo-fi indie folk. They live on opposite ends of the country now. Go see them if you like Rose Melberg, Marine Girls, having your heart warmed thoroughly.
Ace Bushy Striptease is a punk band from Birmingham. Mostly loud chaotic pop. Informed by the likes of Pavement, Los Campesinos + Brand New.
Our friend Jack Barraclough made this amazing video for our song ‘Monsters’!!!
Our new album ‘Slow and Steady’ is now available to pre-order from both Stitch-Stitch and Discount Horse. It’s made up of ten songs which were recorded in the same sessions as ‘It Is The Rehearsal That Will Make This’, so they’re kind of a pair. We’re really excited about it. It’ll be released in early June, in time for our tour with Jack Lewis. You can listen to a preview here.
