News: Broken Hands and Motel Carnation to support FEVA at Riverside


FEVA will be supported by Broken Hands and Motel Carnation at Riverside on 7th September. Get to know the bands a bit better before the show here…



FEVA’s Riverside show will be one of their most ambitious hometown shows yet. They have become a formidable live act with a tendency to sell out Newcastle venues. This is in addition to drawing festival crowds at events including Tipping Point Live, This Is Tomorrow and Hit The North where the band opened the main stage. 

Although FEVA are well known in the North East, word is quickly spreading further afield. The band recently toured with fellow Geordie rockers The Pale White and have been tipped by the likes of Dork, Clash and The Line Of Best Fit, not to mention support they have received from BBC Radio 1. 

FEVA have an intoxicating sound that melds garage rock and indie and have reached new sonic heights with their latest single ‘Undone.’ 


Broken Hands are a rock quintet from Canterbury. In recent months the band’s colossal sound has made them a name regularly uttered on the UK touring circuit. 

On 9th August, the band will release their hotly anticipated album ‘Split In Two’. This will be their first release through major label Atlantic Records and will include some of the band’s best new releases including ‘Split in Two’, ‘Friends House’ and ‘Wrong Track’. Radio 1 presenters Jack Saunders, Huw Stephens and Daniel P. Carter have showed these tracks love. 



Motel Carnation are rising up the ranks of Newcastle’s music scene at breakneck speed. The supergroup, made up of previous members of Coquin Migale, Casual Threats and Scalesia produce vibe-laced, sultry indie. 

In just three months the band have received airplay on BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing Newcastle and Teesside as well as Spark Sunderland. Recent single ‘Westside’ is already finding its way onto Spotify playlists with thousands of regular listeners.
