Bristol's undisputed kings of volume are back. They will release their new record, 'The Grand Scheme Of Things' on Pelagic Records, Oct 4th and will mark its release with their first Bristol headline in 18 months. The band made their debut on Pelagic Records with their split single with LLNN. Their previous EPs Druj and Drugs were acclaimed amalgams of doom, hardcore, stoner and punk, continued by acclaimed debut LP The Live Long After. A band who were due to tour with Black Peaks before the inevitable Covid disruption, and who have toured with Vennart and played ArcTanGent, Sugar Horse have received praise from Upset Magazine, Metal Hammer, Revolver and Kerrang!, among others.

Forming in 2015 as a trio in a flat in Bristol, Sugar Horse fully came into being in 2019 with the addition of Jake Healy on baritone guitar and keyboards. Seeking to break away from emerging trends in their scene, the band's emphasis on simplicity and down-tempo heft belies an impressive sense of self-awareness and maturity. In their own words: "I think the best art is formed when it's creators enforce rigid rules on themselves. Mondrian had geometry, Mark E Smith had his hatred for cigarette taxation and we have a complete disregard for urgency."

Joining them is Bristol's own HAAL, whose blend of post and alt sounds provide the perfect accompaniment to this bill.

Entry requirements: 14+, any under 18s accompanied by 21+ adult 1:1 ratio
