Touchstone and The Reasoning have confirmed a a series of special guests for their Trinity Live cancer charity event in May – and they’ve promised a “very special headliner” will also be announced in the near future. Matt Stevens, Alan Reed, Heather Findlay and Rob Reed will all appear at The Assembly, Leamington Spa, on May 18. The concert is being run in place of a planned set of shows which were to feature Magenta alongside Touchstone and The Reasoning. They’ve been postponed as a result of Magenta vocalist Christina Booth’s cancer fight, and will be rescheduled once her treatment is completed. Prog was in place as a proud sponsor of the tour, and we remain on board to support the fundraising event. The Reasoning’s Matt Cohen says: “Matt, Alan and Heather will be performing acoustic sets, which many of you know are brilliant and entertaining. We’re very honoured to have them on board. “We’re also very pleased to announce that Rob will be playing a very special set. The format is still to be determined, but we’re just pleased to have him on the bill, especially as his band Magenta were part of the original Trinity lineup. “We’ll be confirming more bands soon, plus a very special headliners. We promise May 18 will be a day to remember.” Trinity Live ickets are on sale now. Tags: Alan Reed, featured, Heather Findlay, Magenta, Matt Stevens, Rob Reed, The Reasoning, Touchstone, trinity live

PANIC ROOM bring their epic, award-winning music to the Borderline this April as part of a major UK & European Tour. Fresh from the studio with a killer new album – ‘Incarnate’ – the band will perform a wealth of brand new material at this show, along with the most outstanding tracks from their previous 3 critically-acclaimed discs. Famed for their breathtaking live performances, PANIC ROOM play vital alt-rock with a sultry edge, and have been dubbed ‘a scarily gifted band – whose talent & energy pour off the stage in a tidal wave’. Expect music of bold grandeur, spine-tingling beauty, and gutsy raw power… all delivered with the unashamed passion and joy which have made PANIC ROOM one of the most celebrated and cherished British bands of the moment. Led by über-frontwoman Anne-Marie Helder - whose soaring voice and hypnotic stage-presence have led to her winning ‘Best Female Vocalist’ for two years running in a national UK music magazine - PANIC ROOM play each show like it was their last. Storming the stage, rousing every emotion, and leaving a blazing trail of sound. The 5 band members have each worked with some notable artists - Ultravox, Simply Red, Fish, Toto, Robert Palmer, Glenn Tilbrook (Squeeze) and Keith Emerson – making them highly experienced musicians, with a multitude of influences. With their home roots in Wales, England and Singapore, they’re an eclectic bunch, with a hunger for discovery and a taste for the unusual. But it is within PANIC ROOM that they really shine : a sense of freedom, true creativity, and a sheer passion for music is what drives them all forward… and you can feel this in every breathtaking song they deliver. PANIC ROOM are nigh-on impossible to define – essentially a ‘rock’ band, they play around with unexpected flashes of funk, pop, blues, and atmospheric eastern stylings to create a truly unique fusion… their own, magnificently hooky sound. Like the five points of a star, this musical quintet are interconnected : shining as equals, and perfectly in balance. Independently, they are all dazzling musicians. Together, they create some of the most buzzing and inspirational music imaginable. After a phenomenal show here last year, come and experience PANIC ROOM Live for yourself when they return in 2014 with the stunning ‘Incarnate’ Tour.
