Norwich post-punk rockers Clown Smash Everything will headline a five-band noisefest in Bury tomorrow (June 4).
Billed as a “relentless, slab-heavy angular post-punk” outfit, fans at the Hunter Club can expect CSE to “deliver their unique alt-rock body-blows with vitriol and pitch-black humour”.
CSE top a line-up that will include metallers Brazen Bull, garage-punk outfit Fuze, Final Transmission and Rascade.
The show comes as CSE continue to work on a bunch of new songs which will be produced by Dave Draper (Wildhearts/They Fell From The Sky), which the band hopes to release in the autumn.
“We’d intended to take a bit of a step back from live work to concentrate on finishing the writing and rehearsing of the five songs we have in the barrel for our next EP,” says guitarist Jay Freeman.
“However, Seymour Quigley, who’s an excellent promoter based in Bury and a great friend of the band, approached us with an offer we couldn’t refuse.
“We’ve had some great nights at the Hunter Club, and Bury has a really vibrant scene with some amazing bands, as evidenced by the outstanding line-up he’s put together, so we jumped at the chance to head up such a high-quality night.
“It’s going to be pretty special.”
