Are you ready for an unforgettable night of rock, prog and freakish twists and turns – from three bands making big waves on the international rock scene? If so then all discerning music fans need to make sure that they catch CIRCU5, I Am The Manic Whale and Let’s Swim, Get Swimming at LEVEL 3 in Swindon on SATURDAY 21 SEPTEMBER.
CIRCU5… imagine rock and prog poured into a blender, mixed with a dash of 60s vocal harmonies and lashings of hard-driving rhythms. But while certain influences spring to mind, CIRCU5 exists in its own world of adrenalin-rush anthems, addictive choruses and goose-bump melodies. CIRCU5 is the project of Steve Tilling – multi-instrumentalist and guitarist/vocalist for TC&I (the band of Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers from XTC).
I Am The Manic Whale are unashamedly a progressive rock band. While evoking many of the great progressive artists like Genesis, Big Big Train, Spock’s Beard and Neal Morse, the band brings something new to the table. Their intelligent lyrics touch on unusual and interesting subjects – from science fiction to the history of printing, the decay of a derelict swimming pool, and the artistic creations of Dutch artist Theo Jansen (Strandbeests).
Let’s Swim, Get Swimming are an instrumental math rock band hailing from Surrey, UK. The band consist of drummer Thomas Shrimpton, bassist Andrew Stokoe and guitarist Paddy Towner. Paddy is a new addition to the band as of July 2017, replacing the incredibly talented Will Lancastle. The three remaining members all studied at The Academy of Contemporary Music.
Debut record Islands brought the band immediate attention and landed them support slots with well established acts such as Totorro, The Physics House Band, And So I Watch You From Afar, Strobes, Tangled Hair and more. On the back of this success, Lets Swim, Get Swimming organised and embarked on 3 tours around the U.K, one consisting of a headline tour of 10 shows in 10 days.
