    From A City In Ruins

    Born out of the depleted industrial area of Grimsby, Lincs, From A City In Ruins stride forward with their mouthwatering mix of razor sharp and dynamic Alt-Rock. Brimming with raw passion and boundless energy, the youthful upstarts continue their ascent with a cluster of UK shows .

    With a flurry of influences ranging from the edgy post-hardcore sounds of Refused through to the atmospherics and artsy cool of Joy Division and The Cure, From A City Ruins have amassed a riveting sound that is laced with innovate ideas, peppered with hooky riffs and perfectly complimented by jagged guitars and off-kilter phrasing. The alt-rockers have locked their absorbing sound down to tape and it’s ideally showcased on their debut single “Fin! Fin! Fin!” which is also backed by the quite fantastical “Introverts”. With a full length album in the works and further touring in the pipeline, everything is slipping into place for the northern upstarts.

    FACIR have already racked up an impressive 200 plus shows during the past two years, including dates with the likes of general fiasco, Flood Of Red, the computers and This City, to name a few. With an increasing fanbase, further UK and European shows scheduled throughout 2011, with broad underground support already garnered, and having been touted by Rocksound Magazine as ones
    to watch, it’s evident that this industrious quartet show no signs of letting up!

  2. Burnel Rooms says:

    Part underground club, part Parisian Jazz cafe; the Burnel Rooms hosts a huge range of events from banging club nights, to packed loud-and-sweaty gigs, to more laid back and contemplative jazz and experimental concerts.

    Underpinning our diverse events is a belief that adventurous audiences should have the opportunity to see cutting edge artists from across the world in an intimate and personal setting.

    Bradford has a legacy of exciting independent art and we are proud to be part of the effort to keep the Bradford pioneering spirit alive.

    Established in 2015 we have hosted acts including

    Father Murphy (Italy)
    Vison Fortune (ATP recordings)
    Blood Sport (Blast First records)
    Giant Swan
    Drunk In Hell
    Maurizio Abate (Italy)
    Above The Tree (Italy)
    Dean McPhee
    The Wharves
    Howie Reeve

    and DJs from Bradford’s ‘least pretentious and most free indie disco’ No Hands.

    At the Burnel Rooms we champion independently-minded culture and the Do-It-Yourself ethos. As a visitor you might not know what you’re going to get but we can guarantee it’ll be out of the ordinary.

    Our bar stocks a wide range of local ales and many of our events feature ‘ethical-but-not-boring-food’ and refreshments from Bare Plume Cafe.

    Come down and get a taste of the sweet and spicy underground in Bradford.
