Alias Kid are back with a new single ahead of a hometown gig at The Deaf Institute in Manchester on February 2nd.


Inglorious will come out a day earlier and is available to pre-order now for the band who were featured by Live4ever in our Presents series back in 2015. “We have so many influences it’s impossible to tie down,” they told us then. “Sean’s into the Sex Pistols and that, I’m into Lennon but loads of other stuff. Nick and James are pretty much into the same as me in the main, Col is well into his punk. But there is loads of cross over for us all.”

“We get tagged with the ‘Oasis thing’ because we’re signed with McGee and from Manchester; I don’t think me or Sean would have picked up a guitar if it wasn’t for them, but truth is we aren’t the ones saying that, we say we’re Alias Kid.”

Doves‘ live comeback keeps expanding and has now been confirmed to include an appearance at Bearded Theory in May next year.


They join others such as The Cult, Suede, Oh Sees, The Orb and Editors at Catton Hall next year. Doves’ return is set to include a couple of outings with Noel Gallagher next summer and will start at the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust, whose organiser Roger Daltrey said:

“I’m incredibly grateful to all of the artists who’ve given up time in their busy schedules to help young people with cancer get the specialist care they deserve.”

“Looking back, we’ve had so many unforgettable moments at the shows over the years and these moments are amplified by the wonderful young people with cancer I have met. I’m consistently overwhelmed by their positivity in the face of a life changing circumstance. They are the reason we strive to make these shows the very best we can and this year will be no different.”

The Good The Bad & The Queen arrange six UK dates for next year

The Good The Bad & The Queen have arranged six UK dates for April next year.


The collective of Damon Albarn, Paul Simonon, Tony Allen and Simon Tong will play shows in Norwich, Cardiff, Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool and London after releasing their Merrie Land album last month. “This has been coming – Damon Albarn has been opposed to Brexit from the off,” Live4ever’s review opens.

“Back in 2016, on the day after the UK’s EU referendum vote, he was at Glastonbury performing with The Orchestra Of Syrian Musicians and addressed the subdued crowd: “Democracy has failed us because it was ill informed,” he said.”

“A reformation of The Good The Bad & The Queen (back in 2007 it was ambiguous as to whether or not it was a band, an album or a project – now we know) was the most likely of his various platforms to be an outlet for his thoughts on the subject.”

Tour dates:

April 2019
12 – Norwich, The LCR, UEA
13 – Cardiff University, Great Hall
15 – Sheffield, Octagon Centre
16 – Manchester, Albert Hall
18 – Liverpool, Eventim Olympia
19 – London, The Palladium
