[Watch] Wet Nuns - "Hanging" (Official Video)

A few weeks ago I made the trip to the wonderful Beacons Festival and one of the highlights of the weekend for me were the death-blues pairing Wet Nuns who delivered a face melting set. Their new single "Hanging" has now been given the official video treatment and it features footage from that very set along with the duo smashing the crap out of their guitar and drums. Something I've always wanted to do in all honesty. The track is set to feature on their self-titled debut which is released on the 9th of October.  

They'll head out on tour in October too so be sure to catch them live while you can. Not that they're going anywhere. Just, you know, 'cause they're playing soon.

[Listen] Wet Nuns - "Hanging"

Wet Nuns are preparing to release their self-titled album next month which was produced by Ross Orton (Arctic Monkey, MIA, The Kills) in their hometown of Sheffield. It's promising to be a belly rumbling lesson in and today we get a new track from the release. Titled "Hanging" you can stream the in your face single below. Make sure to pour a whiskey and grow a beard while you're at it. Watch out for the neck breaking ending too. I'm very excited to hear the album which drops on October 9th.

[Y Not Festival] Our Most Anticipated Artists of the Festival

We've mentioned Y Not Festival a few times in the past few months and this weekend hoards of people will gather in Pikehall, Derbyshire to see some fantastic live music. We'll be making the trip over to enjoy the weekend in the sun (hopefully) and before we do that we thought we'd include some information on the bands we're most look forward to seeing over the weekend. 

Make the jump to get the low-down. The festival is now sold-out so if you slept on it, I'm afraid you've missed otu this year. Be sure to find the guys on Facebook to keep up with next year's plans. 

Dan Le Sac VS Scroobius Pip

When: Friday

Where: Quarry Stage

Why? Quick wit, great beats and a return from the duo after their last release back in 2007. Excited yet? You should be. Try and keep up as Scroob lays verse after verse down making you both think and dance all at the same time. A deadly combination.

The Cribs

When: Saturday

Where: The Big Gin Stage

Why? The Wakefield band of brothers have come a long way over the past decade and their live shows are raw as freshly chopped onions. With their latest album released just last year after the departure of Johnny Marr from the ranks, they've gone back to basics and I'm sure the performance will be a highlight of the weekend for many.

Willy Moon

When: Friday

Where: The Big Gin Stage

Why? When you first see Willy Moon you might not expect him to be a mover and a shaker, given his clean cut hair and dapper suits. Don't let that fool you. His live performances pack a punch and after releasing his brilliant album, Here's Willy Moon, he's sure to leave the main stage crowd impressed.

 

The Horrors

When: Friday

Where: The Big Gin Stage

Why? If Dan Le Sac and Scroob ain't quite your thing on Friday evening, then how about you head over to the Big Gin stage to witness The Horrors perform tracks from their absolutely stunning LP, Skying. On point and it could be argued, better live than on record. You be the judges.

Family Rain

When: Sunday

Where: Quarry Stage

Why? Another band of Brothers for you to check out on one of the smaller stages. The Family Rain recorded in their families basement and the results on record are wonderful. Gritty and blues tinged, perfect for a Sunday afternoon in the sun.

Wet Nuns

When: Sunday

Where: The Giant Squid Stage

Why? A two piece band that will melt your face and make you want to kiss the person next to you all at the same time? Wet Nuns are for you with Kyuss like riffs and stoner vibes. Make sure you catch these guys and shake off your Sunday cobwebs.

China Rats

When: Sunday

Where: The Big Gin Stage

Why? We've mentioned China Rats a few times on SKOA and they're definitely a band to keep a close eye on over the coming months and festival season. Catch them now before they start playing larger crowds and bigger tents. It could be an "I was there" moment for the years to come.

The Joy Formidable

When: Sunday

Where: The Big Gin Stage

Why? A band with fans such as Mark Hoppus and Dave Grohl have got to be high on your "to-see" list for Sunday surely? These guys are sure to start your Sunday evening with a bang before the big guns take to headlining. 

[News] Y Not Festival Lineup

You know what I enjoy even more than the UK's biggest festivals? The smaller ones. Last year I ventured back into my home county of Derbyshire to hit up Y Not festival, a homegrown, grass roots built from the ground up festival. Boy did I have a good time. The likes of The Wombats, We Are Scientists, Pulled Apart By Horses, Roots Manuva, Little Comets and a host more across numerous stages graced the fields. This year promises to be even bigger, and with the winning the best small festival award last year, they're going to want to keep the good graces coming their way. With real ale and cider on offer too, family and friends a like are sure to have a good time along with tasting some great local produce.

This summer, over the weekend of August 2nd-4th, the normally peaceful countryside will play host to a melting pot of talent old and new. Headlining the Big Gin Stage will be The Horrors, The Cribs and The Darkness along with Ash, The Joy Formidable, Sky Larkin, Swim Deep, Drenge, Willy Moon. Gracing The Quarry Stage will be The 1975, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Electric Six, Stealing Sheep, The Family Rain and Sons and Lovers. Thing stake a heavier turn on The Giant Squid Stage with Wet Nuns, We Are The Ocean, Sharks, Arcane Roots, Gnarwolves and The Computers playing their music to the tent. 

The full line-up can be seen over on the official site with tickets priced at just £79.50. More bands are yet to be announced. Treat yourself to some summer fun.

[Wacth] Wet Nuns - "Broken Teeth" (Official Video)

Still feeling a little worse for wear after a heavy weekend? We've all been there and I'm currently in that horrible place right now. This video should help wake you the eff up though. It's for a track we posted a week ago from Wet Nuns and it's a rip roaring slug titled "Broken Teeth", with a video that portrays all the energy of the track so damn well. The reason it does that is it uses live clips of the band performing, cut together with some awesome looking animation. Check it out above and wake the hell up!

Their new EP Broken Teeth is set to be released on the 18th of February.

[Listen] Wet Nuns - "Broken Teeth"

I've always had a bit of a thing for noisy two-piece bands. Call me what you will but they do it for me. Always have. I remember the day I stumbled upon an uncle's copy of The Black Keys' Thickfreakness, and I've never looked back. Last year I was rather happy to stumble upon a new deafening force that go by the name of Wet Nuns. They're now preparing to release a new EP titled Broken Teeth on February 18th and if this lead track is anything to go by it'll put hairs on your prepubescent chest. 

Check out the new bell shaking EP title track below and check out some tour dates after the jump.

If that's not enough the boys have set up their own festival called Detestival which will take place on March 30th - 31st with bands like Bo Ningen, Wolf People, Hookworms, Kult Country, John J Presley, Blood Presley, TOY and more gracing the stage. Details of that can be found over here.
