The Rock City archives: 2012

A Plastic Rose & We Came From Wolves, Rock City Basement

  • Saturday 6th October 2012

A Plastic Rose & WECAMEFROMWOLVES will share centre stage on this co-headline bill in the Rock City Basement as part of the Hey Hey Hey clubnight this October.

A Plastic Rose After a tremendously busy 2011, A Plastic Rose kicked off 2012 by supporting Snow Patrol to crowds of up to 34,000 at two sold out shows. Finally, an opportunity to prove their worth on the biggest of all stages after 5 years of relentless touring, recording, and writing to build their loyal fanbase, known to the band as the APRmy, this is yet another step forward for one of Northern Ireland’s most exciting bands. After these shows, it's full steam ahead for the rest of the year with 'Build From The Ground Up', and ‘Boy Racer’ being very well received singles from their highly anticipated debut album, ‘Camera.Shutter.Life’ planned for release in October 2012. The debut follows 2011's mini album The Promise Notes released on Di Di Mau Records, which is gaining an increasingly strong roster of important artists, The Promise Notes is a summation of where the band has got to so far, but leaves you in no doubt that the best is yet to come. With overwhelmingly positive reviews in the UK and Irish press (8/10 Rock Sound, 7/10 AU, 8/10 Drop D) The Promise Notes has successfully got people talking about this exciting new band, garnering them comparisons to the likes of Biffy Clyro, Snow Patrol, Foo Fighters, and Twin Atlantic

WECAMEFROMWOLVES are a post-rock band from Perth, Scotland. The four piece are all about harmonic, melodic soundscapes with hook-laden, euphoric choruses. They have rallied an enthusiastic following after a series of blistering live sets during their European tour in Jan 2012, whilst gathering support from radio luminaries Ally McCrae and Jim Gellatly. The band has supported Frightened Rabbit and embarking on a UK tour with Hopeless Heroic in May. In April 2012 they signed to Engineer records, who have worked with established artists such as Funeral for a Friend and Gaslight Anthem. Their debut EP, Cope, will be released September 2012 through EngineerRecords.
