Thursday night was the last night of the Broco/Priorities Sold Out UK Tour. One of our favourite albums of 2012 and one that just won’t stop growing. We headed down early because the whole bill was amazing. First on were the stars of the Atticus Beer Tour a few weeks back, Decade. Not daunted at all by playing to a sold out Koko, they kicked the night off in style. Ones to watch this year.
They alone would have set the night up well but it still wasn’t time for Broco yet. We were treated to Pure Love first. No one in that room was ready for the show they were about to see. Jim Carroll was horizontal being passed around the hands of the crowd in the first tune, without issing a note he was playing. One of the coolest … Read More »
It’s been a while since we released some music through Atticus. Last time was the amazing debut album by Spycatcher and before that the Placebo track ‘Trigger Happy Hands’. We try and concentrate on making the best clothes and let the bands we endorse put out the great music. But sometimes we hear something that isn’t on a label yet feel the urge to get it out there.
That’s what happened with Hill Valley High, or HvH for short.
Their first official release comes out on Atticus today and is available to buy on the Atticus webstore. 6 tracks all produced by Larry Hibbitt of Hundred Reasons, another band with Atticus history.
Check out the video to lead track ‘Move Closer’ here:
Last weekend we hit the road to Liverpoool for the first Radstock Festival. We knew it was going to be good before we left because:
1) Sean and Pete from Liverpool Academy had put it together. One of these men is responsible for the Seasonal Festival RumSack. That alone deserves some credit.
2) It was in Liverpool and thats a town that knows how to rage.
3) The Line up was amazing cramming in The Blackout, WATO, Don Broco, Yashin, Marmozets, Bleed from Within, Bury Tomorrow, Gnarwolves, Natives, Polar, Straight Lines, Rat Attack, Blitz Kids, Decade, Light You Up and more…a lot of bang for your buck.
We’re weren’t disappointed. Best day so far this year in fact. The first day of sun for ages, enough Atticus Beer to get everyone in the mood and amazing bands for 12 hours. Kinda makes you wish everyday could … Read More »
We went to see Finch play the 10th Anniversary Show for ‘What It Is To Burn’ at Brixton Academy last week.
They were one of the first bands ever to be endorsed by Atticus when we started.
Mallory Knox opened, one of the newest bands on our rosta complete with their new Atticus backdrop and had no problem playing the biggest indoor stage in Europe.
Finch were amazing; ‘What It Is To Burn’ sounded as good as ever and hasn’t dated at all. They had the Dead Bird looking on from their banners too.
Lets hope they do it again in another 10 years.
Finch…we salute you.
This time next week, Radstock in association with Atticus Beer, hits Liverpool Academy for a massive day of rock and hardcore across 3 stages.

Soundwave was amazing as always…we threw our annual Pre-Party to kick it off in style…the rest of the night was a bit of blur…until next year.
Here is another photo dump from the Soundwave Festival in Australia.
Loads of great bands and a serious amount of dedicated people braving the heat and summer sun. The day was such a blur as we where running from stage to stage or throwing out high fives like they where going out of fashion.
