‘This Feeling’ announce UK Tour featuring The Shimmer Band, Bang Bang Romeo & Blackwaters

Representing the very best of the new classic British guitar bands ‘Alive’ is This Feeling’s biggest national tour in its 11 year history. The club night has organically become the nation’s No.1 live new music event and now has stages at major festivals inc Reading and Isle of Wight but the ethos remains the same; put on bands we love and back them to the hilt.

We’ve been told for years guitar music’s dead, where’s the next big band gonna come from? They’re here, right here, right now. Years of building an authentic underground scene are coming to a head…THREE of the most exciting new prospects in the world of indie rock will tour together for the very first time in October 2017 PLUS the cream of the local crop in each city.

“It’s us against prime time and all that shit…” Tom Newman (The Shimmer Band)…

The line-up includes euphoric Verve/Kasabian sorts The Shimmer Band, Bang Bang Romeo who sound like a hard-edged Fleetwood Mac plus explosive Libs-esque indie hitmakers Blackwaters.

The bands on the ‘Alive’ tour emerged from playing This Feeling club nights and festival stages – a well-known hang out for the rockstars such as the Gallagher brothers, Kasabian, and The Libertines. Quickly gathering a reputation, their shared dedication to the scene, and ability to send intimate venues into frenzy means they’ve been handpicked by This Feeling.

The tour will represent the very best in British indie guitar music in 2017 and it’s This Feeling’s biggest national tour in its 10 year history – the tour marks the moment that years of building an underground scene comes to a head and national domination begins. This is the start of a resurgence in uncompromising guitar music.
