WITH a début album in the offing this month The Visitors live up to their name by taking their ’70s classic rock-flavoured antics to Sheffield on September 24.
The band were formed by Factory Records signee Karl Walsh of To Hell With Burgundy, now with Earliest Records, and have spent the past two years plying their trade up and down the country.
Two earlier singles culminate in Above You, an album engineered by Dan Broad (Happy Mondays) and mixed by Paul Mortlock (Jessica Hoop).
“A wink has been tipped to Bowie, Bolan and Dylan’s fresh, melodic songwriting and grand harmonies,” say the band ahead of their Cobden View shift. “A wider range of influences have created a punchy guitar-based sound that builds up to panoramic effect.”
It’s time to Put TesseracT to the test
A WEEK to go before their headline romp around the island hits Sheffield and “Djent scene pioneers” TesseracT are like coiled springs.
The Lowering The Tone 2011 tour concludes at Corporation next Friday following the release of their critically acclaimed album One earlier this year and includes the talents of Chimp Spanner and Uneven Structure.
“This is going to be bad ass,” says bass grappler Amos Williams. “We’re really excited to be on the road with two stunning groups that both raise the bar every night.
“To be back touring the UK is a pleasure especially as we’ve now played more shows outside the UK than we have at home.”
