THE CHARLATANS – 05/12/17 – 02 Academy, Newcastle

The Charlatans are one of British music’s ultimate success and survival tales.  They’ve been Tellin’ Stories for the best part of 30 years and with the release of their latest album, Different Days, the band are showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. This November they embark on an 11-date UK tour and will be bringing their fantastic live show to Newcastle’s O2 Academy on Tuesday 5th December on what is sure to be another great night of indie classics that will have fans rolling back the years.

The Manchester band have been consistently releasing quality albums since 1989 but there’ve been plenty of lows to go with the many highs in their career, having suffered the tragic deaths of original keyboardist Rob Collins and drummer Jon Brookes.  Undeterred, the band have overcome adversity and have a back catalogue that is second to none with such indie dance-floor hits like the anthems North Country Boy, One To Another and The Only One I Know.  What’s more, some have described Different Days as their best album in 20 years.

In support, London’s power-poppers Average Sex will be celebrating the release of their new track Ice Cream which is nothing short of orgasmic, whilst County Durham’s Tom Mouse Smith may have been born with only half a working heart, but the 13 year old singer-songwriter protégé has already supported the likes of Shed Seven and Frankie & The Heartstrings so will be sure to capture the hearts of Charlatans fans this December.



Forming in 1999, US sludge-rock outfit Mastodon head to Northumbria Institute on 6th December.

The band are fresh from the release of their latest opus, Emperor Of Sand, to mass critical acclaim in March 2017.  Over the course of Mastodon’s career, the band members have fearlessly continued to push themselves towards greater creative heights on their recorded output. Each studio album has united an ever-expanding worldwide legion of fans who have come to expect the unexpected twists and turns that have elevated Mastodon to become one of the most respected and influential creative forces in rock music.

Mastodon are also due to release a new EP featuring four previously unreleased tracks via Reprise Records. Cold Dark Place will be released digitally and on CD on September 22, followed by the release of a limited-edition 10” vinyl picture disc on October 27.

Catch Mastodon’s wealth of new material live at Northumbria institute on 6th December 2017.
