    Thursday, 16th of April, doors @7pm, £3.00 ADV, £5.00 OTD King Goat craft elements of psychedelic and eastern influences with the heaviest grooves to create a hypnotic, yet dynamic, progressive doom sound. Their songs are full of variation and tension, as riffs are presented and mutated, flowing through their songs. King Goat formed in Brighton, UK at the start of 2012. With a change of frontman in 2013, King Goat have released a new self titled EP, and have been increasingly active in playing gigs in London and along the South coast of the UK. King Goat have been gaining a reputation for their engaging, atmospheric live performance, which starts slowly behind a wall of smoke and incense, but quickly develops and builds, playing with a visibly genuine energy, filling the room with their sound and presence. Formed in 2008 in the troubled UK town of Nottingham, WIDOWS play music you can raise a beer and swing a fist to and they do it hard fast and loud, with bone crushing grooves and undeniable swagger! Influenced by the likes of Down, Kyuss, and Clutch, WIDOWS have spent the two years since the release of their debut EP (2010’s Raise the Monolith) building up an ever more impressive live set as they chewed up, spat out, and pounded venue after venue into submission, adding weight to their sets with regular new tracks and building the collection of songs that would later become their debut full length CD, Death Valley Duchess. The album was recorded after a stoner rock pilgrimage by members James (guitars) and Adam (vocals) to the Californian desert in a bid for inspiration for both the music and album artwork. The recording itself took place at MOOT GROUP STUDIOS in NOTTINGHAM with Johnny Carter (Pitchshifter) and Paul Yeadon (Bivouac) who’s previous clients have included Send More Paramedics, the Plight, Bring Me The Horizon, and the Earache, Copro, 30 Days of Night labels.

Q: When will a vinyl be released?

A: UPDATE: We're planning on having a split 7" out this summer! We've been wanting to release a vinyl for a while now but there are no concrete plans as yet, although next year is a good candidate for a vinyl release as we have been talking to a few people about doing a split 10".
