Meanwhile, Cult Leeds band allusinlove, who have been known by several names until now, are headlining at Café Totem in Furnival  Gate,Sheffield on Wednesday, February 6.  

Rock anthem All Good People is the first taste of allusinlove’s EP, produced by the legendary Catherine Marks (Foals, The Killers, Wolf Alice) and Alan Moulder (Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins, Queens Of The Stone Age).

The single is accompanied by an explosive video directed by Michael Holyk, showing allusinlove in their absolute element.

The band say: “All Good People is all about positivity, embracing the body of your lover and being open about it. The main message is one of unity and it’s all set over a soaring psychedelic 12-bar blues melody. Dig in!”
