Lacey and Adelphia (Co-Headline), Rock City Basement

  • Friday 11th July 2014


Get set for a feast of huge local talent at Rock City this July, when the simply awesome Lacey team up with the superb Adelphia to co-headline in the Basement.

We welcome back Adelphia to Rock City after a blazing gig previously. Since forming in 2012 Adelphia have produced a mature Alternative-Rock sound, mixing thick guitar riffs, melodic licks and punchy drums as well as smooth toned vocals to collectively make the Adelphia sound come alive in the studio as well as live on stages across the UK, playing shows at the infamous ROCK CITY, HIT THE DECK FESTIVAL and other great venues.

Adelphia proved from their recently recorded singles and EP (working alongside producer/engineer Matt O’Grady) that they are something fresh and exciting with a powerful, melodic edge. Adelphia have also proven themselves in the media with record breaking coverage from the BBC introducing broadcasting channel, numerous NUSIC podcast broadcasting and great reviews from a mass of online critics such as the band released their debut ep as well as a packed out headlining show in late 2013 which rocketed their record sales into the thousands in under 2 months! As well as over 100,000 YouTube hits under their belt.

2014 sparked a fresh and exciting time for Adelphia as they record new singles ‘If I Fall’ and ‘Better Off’ which has been promised to display a more energetic and anthematic side to this already regionally recognised rock outfit!

Lacey are an alternative pop-rock outfit also from Nottingham. Here is what the critics have to say about them!

“Lacey are arguably the best thing to come out of Nottingham since Kevin Costners’ mullet. Drawing influence from the glory days of the 2002 Long Island music scene, they mix solid guitars and driving beats with more hooks than a tackle box. Lacey will make you soil yourself. In a good way”.

“Nottingham’s Lacey (KKKK) also rise to the challenge, though in fairness they’re probably used to playing to this many souls at their own shows. Combining memory-tugging hooks and choppy guitars, they bring some of Taking Back Sunday’s cut and thrust to the stage”.

"These Nottingham wunderkinds could soon be following Jake Bugg’s path to the big league. And deservedly so”.
