The Icelandic punk/rock band Muck have announced that they are writing new material – could this potentially be the band’s third album release? Time will tell, but for now you can enjoy them live, as they are playing not one, not two, not three, but FOUR shows in London this week!


Tuesday 31st – Kakkmaddafakka, O2 Academy Islington, London

Norwegian sunshine rockers Kakkamaddafakka are heading to London to play their first ever headline show in the UK! The band are currently on quite an impressive European tour, and judging by their very entertaining Facebook page, everything seems to be going swimmingly so far – so check them out live when they head to the O2 Academy Islington this Tuesday!


Saturday 4th – Kenton Slash Demon, Unknown Venue, London

Playing loads of shows in the US at the moment, the UK is very lucky to have Danish duo Kenton Slash Demon visit once again. The pair have been working on a new live-set and their show at Premise – Summer Re-Launch will be the first time that we get to see it, so make sure to head out this weekend to discover some of Copenhagen’s most refined electronic sounds.
