We’re now at the half-way point of this year’s Stand For Something Tour, but things are showing no signs of slowing down. Having already seen Dutch Uncles, Palma Violets and Twin Atlantic cause a right ruckus across the country, the fun is set to continue for another month with Lonely The Brave, The Wytches and Bury Tomorrow.

STAND FOR SOMETHING TOUR 2015 LONELY THE BRAVE, THE WYTCHES & BURY TOMORROW JOIN IN THE FUN

C LONELY THE BRAVE

ambridge five-piece Lonely The Brave are no strangers to the Dr. Martens Stand For Something Tour. After all, they supported Don Broco on it last year in London. Now, however, they’re back to go one bigger. “It’ll be the first time the band’s been over to Ireland, so we’re excited,” explains frontman Dave Jakes. “I think half the audience will consist of Mark [Trotter, guitar]’s family!” he laughs. “They’re all from the Fermanagh area, so it’ll be great to meet them all. I’m looking forward to it.” Lonely The Brave will be joined by Only Rivals and R51 at The Limelight in Belfast on 7th November.

THE WYTCHES

ext up, Brighton-based noiseniks The Wytches head up to Sheffield after spending most of the past year writing and recording a new album. “We toured almost all of last year so we didn’t want to over do it,” the band’s Kristian Bell says, explaining their relatively quiet year. “We have been working on an album, though, and also some other songs where it’s more of a fun thing rather than something with expectations.” The trio are also hoping that their show will match up to the stands of their last visit to the Steel City. “We played with Razoreater and Kagoule last autumn, and it was shreddin’!” The Wytches will be joined by Demob Happy and Bear Chest at The Corporation in Sheffield on 21st November.

his year’s Stand For Something Tour will be brought to a close by none other than Bury Tomorrow, who – after a jam-packed 2015 - are a surefire bet to tear the London show apart. “We’ve pretty much been on tour for an entire year,” frontman Dan Winter-Bates says, “spanning from UK shows to Australia, Japan and even Russia. We’ve also written and recorded our fourth full-length album, so all in all we’ve been pretty busy.” Despite spending the last twelve months performing across the world, it’s already looking likely that their show in Camden’s tiny Our Black Heart is going to be a highlight of their calendar. “It’s going to be crazy,” he enthuses. “Camden in general was one of the first out-of-town places Bury Tomorrow played. We’ve gradually been rising up the ranks in venue size, starting at Barfly, Underworld, Garage to now having sold out KOKO. The whole place is a hub of art, entertainment and individuality. I love it there.” Bury Tomorrow will be joined by Heck at Our Black Heart in London on 28th November.
