SRW Music Presents:

HI-ON MAIDEN / MORPHEUS RISING

Morpheus Rising return to the Brickyard with the fantastic Hi-On Maiden, the UK's one and only officially endorsed tribute to Iron Maiden! 

A busy 2014 saw Morpheus Rising release their second album along with supporting Australian rockers Electric Mary and iconic band Tygers Of Pan Tang. Further headline and support shows followed including a slot at the Wesley Centre in Maltby for the Classic Rock Society.

Last year also saw the band welcome new drummer Nigel Durham – ex Saxon and O.D. Saxon as well as work beginning on album number three.

Now the group have teamed up with Hi-On Maiden in a determined effort to create a fantastic event for fans of metal and rock. Showcasing the vast catalogue of Iron Maiden hits, alongside the captivating and explosive live show of Morpheus Rising, the night will be a stunning success for all metal fans - new and old!

Both bands will be performing a headline show, deciding who will go first on the night by a mere flip of a coin! Make sure that you are through the doors early to catch both bands unleashing the goods! 

Morpheus Rising will be performing songs from their last two albums 'Let The Sleeper Awake' and new album 'E X I M I U S - H U M A N U S', and Hi-On Maiden will be hurtling through the very best classic and iconic Iron Maiden songs.

This show also visits Newcastle, Edinburgh and Bilston, so make sure you get to the Brickyard on July 18th - Up The Irons!

Droll Man  

Saturday 25th July 2015

DROLL MAN
HEALTH SCARE

Rising from the ashes of Carlisle-based sonic titans Mister Mañana, Droll Man's epic blend of melodic post-rock and crushing buzzsaw riffs would not have seemed out of place in the midst of the mid-nineties alternative rock boom; however their genre-bending expansive sounds are far from dated.

Delivering scuzzed-up grooves akin to Deftones if they emerged in the heyday of grunge, with nods to the likes of Tool and Envy along the way, Droll Man bludgeon and soothe in equal measure.

Support comes from Carlisle's newest noise terrorists HEALTH SCARE. Little has been heard of them so far, but with members of Manatees, Claustro and My Last Act Of Bravado on board we're all sure of a deafening ascent in to distortion nirvana.

Doors: 8pm
Admission: £5.00 advance. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.
Tickets: Buy tickets online* or call SeeTickets on 0871 220 0260*.
Alternatively, pop into The Kings Head* (over 18s only), The Cumberland News Office* (Bank Street, Carlisle) or The Brickyard.

Sleaford Mods  

Thursday 24th September 2015
Goldenvoice Presents:

SLEAFORD MODS
STEVE IGNORANT'S SLICE OF LIFE
MARK WYNN

Sleaford Mods launch their brand new album 'Key Markets' on July 10th – and will be heading to The Brickyard this September as part of their biggest tour yet.

Blending together cutting lyrics, brutal loops and an uncompromising stage show, the Nottingham-based post-punks deliver an aggressive verbal onslaught against the contrived and the mundane.

“Key Markets was a large supermarket bang in the centre of Grantham from the early 1970's up until around 1980,” explains vocalist Jason Williamson. “My mum would take me there and I'd always have a large coke in a plastic orange cup surrounded by varnished wood trimmings and big lamp shades with flowers on them. Beige bricks with bright yellow points of sale and large black foam letters surrounded you and this is why we called the album 'Key Markets'. It's the continuation of the day to day and how we see it, the un-incredible landscape.”

Doors: 7pm
Admission: £15.00 advance. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.
Tickets: Buy tickets online* or call SeeTickets on 0871 220 0260*.

Secret Affair   Friday 9th October 2015

SECRET AFFAIR

Secret Affair were one of the best known and loved bands of the late 1970's Mod Revival scene which captured the hearts of the nation's youth of the time along with other acts such as The Jam, Nine Below Zero, The Purple Hearts, The Chords, Squire and many more.

After having two top 10 hit singles with 'Time for Action' and 'Let Your Heart Dance' closely followed by the classic debut album 'Glory Boys' in 1979, Secret Affair introduced their second album with possibly their biggest song 'My World' in the early 80s.

Following the success of last year’s 35th Anniversary Tour, Secret Affair continue to perform throughout 2015 in support of the new release of their four album box set titled ‘Est 1979’ on Captain Oi Records and licensed by Sony/BMG.

Please note, this date has been reschedued from Friday 16th October 2015. All original tickets remain valid.

Lucy Rose   Sunday 25th October 2015
Goldenvoice presents:

LUCY ROSE
PLUS SUPPORT

Lucy Rose will head to The Brickyard as part of her UK tour this Autumn in support of forthcoming second album 'Work It Out'.

Following her 2010 breakthrough as a vocalist on Bombay Bicycle Club's 'Flaws', Lucy Rose has gone from strength to strength. Gradually playing her own solo shows and assembling a band to broaden her sound, the singer-songwriter released her heartfelt debut album 'Like I Used To' in 2012.

'Work It Out' enters a whole new sonic space for the young Warwickshire musician. Where her debut LP introduced a fascinatingly assured acoustic artist, 'Work It Out' is the sound of Lucy Rose creating a bold new context for that voice. The acoustic guitar remains present, but there’s nothing folk or shy about this record.

Doors: 7pm
Admission: £15.00 advance. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.
Tickets: Buy tickets online* or call SeeTickets on 0871 220 0260*.

The Doors Alive   Saturday 7th November 2015
Live Planet Music Presents:

THE DOORS ALIVE

The Doors Alive is quite simply THE most exciting, authentic, charismatic and (self proclaimed) sexually magnetic tribute band to pay homage to 1960s rock titans The Doors. The band have worked tirelessly to achieve the same fluid, dark and heady sounds as The Doors at their psychedelic peak. Their heavy and ever expanding touring schedule has included to date: The UK, Dubai, The Middle East, The Netherlands, Ireland, Poland, Malta, Germany, France and Slovenia. In their wake, they leave thousands of Doors fans satisfied, yet hungry for their next fix! They have incited audiences to leave precisely 6 pairs of ladies knickers, 15 bras, 2 pairs of mens boxer shorts, 1 boob tube and an old scabby comb strewn over the world's stages.
 
What sets The Doors Alive apart, is their sheer dedication and determination to keep the Doors' music not only alive, but completely authentic and delivered with respect.
 
All four band members have dedicated their lives to rise to the position that they hold today: The World's busiest and most respected Doors Tribute band. The band use the very same instruments implemented by the original members of The Doors. With their arsenal of vintage gear, they create note perfect musical landscapes that evoke the swinging days of The Doors at their peak.
 
Front man, Willie Scott doesn't just look AND sound the part; with rich baritone voice, stage craft, charisma and brooding stage presence, he has the girls (and some of the fellas!) in the front row swooning, and the rest of the crowd nestling gently in the palm of his hand! Willie has studied Jim's every move and mannerism (on DVD and YouTube) to get the role down to a tee.
 
They flawlessly meld the styles the original members honed; flamenco, Blues, Jazz, Rock and Bossa Nova.
 
So let The Doors Alive Set Your Night On Fire, Swim You To The Moon, Love You Madly, make your day that little bit Stranger then drive you to the Road House, and When The Music's Over, The Doors Alive will have broken you on through to the other side! The End.

"If you thought Val Kilmer was good, be warned this guy is even better. Moving and singing like Morrison the rich baritone clung to the air like molasses - Simply The best Doors tribute band on the road at the moment" - Ron Clooney (Author of 'Mr. Mojo Risin').

"The Doors Alive is the best Doors "tribute" band that I've seen...Sometimes they sound more like The Doors then The Doors" - Doug Cameron (Assistant road manager to The Doors 1968/69).
