The Rock City archives: 2013

Eva Plays Dead, Rock City Basement

  • Saturday 16th March 2013
  • Supported by: Patriot Rebel, Theia, Adelphia, Harriet


Eva Plays Dead have been recognized for their powerful female vocals, edgy lyrics, catchy guitar rock riffs and their powerhouse rhythm section. The band, made up of Tiggy Dockerty (Vocals), Matt Gascoyne (Guitar), Zach Shannon (Bass) and Seb Boyse (Drums), makes audiences across the country question how just 4 people can make such a noise.

Formerly known as BuryTheLadybird, this Derby band have made themselves an established, well-known act across the UK due to their hard working ethos and commitment to constantly tour up and down the country, playing at venues and festivals both large and small. However, leading up to where they are now, they have been through several changes of line up and musical direction so with a name change for the end of 2012 to suit the 'final product', an album to release in March through Artifex Records and a tonne of promotion leading up to it, the four piece rock band plan to carry on doing what they did as BuryTheLadybird and take their music to the road.

Having already released two very successful singles through Artifex Records with accompanying music videos on YouTube, which lead to the band being featured on the MySpace homepage, the Muzu TV homepage as 'Muzu Recommends: Breaking Artist' and the homepage of Glasswerk, alongside a collection of support from radio stations across the UK, including Kerrang! Radio, and great reviews from a range of webzines, we are very excited to release our debut album, of which the title will be announced alongside the new band name.
