No Hot Ashes

No Hot Ashes are promoting the track, which will be on their debut album Hardship Starship, ahead of an appearance at Record Junkee off The Moor on August 24.

They have already played the same venue back in May, headlining in a line-up that included The Covasettes and The Claremonts.

They are appearing at the Earl Street venue this time as part of the Un Dia festival that also takes in Cafe Totem on Furnival Gate.

The all-day line-up includes Patawawa, Only Sun, POLO, Franko Fraize, Sad Boys Club and Camaro. Tickets: www.ticketweb.uk

Directed by videographer Sam Crowston, the playful video for Extra Terrestrial sees the band rocking out in pastel pink and white.

The band said: “Extra Terrestrial is a song about relationships and knowing someone better than you know yourself.

“The constant fat bass lines matched with shouty choruses implore you to move. We were trying for something catchy with this one.”

Stockport band No Hot Ashes

Hardship Starship will be released this Friday (August 16) via Modern Sky UK.

It is described as “a cosmic epic that sees the band looking to the stars to escape the drudgery of Brexit Britain”.

The album was produced by Chris Taylor (The Coral, Everything Everything, Ian Brown, Bill Ryder Jones) in Liverpool.

The Stockport-based band have received support from radio stations BBC 6 Music and Radio X for a string of singles including Easy Peeler, Bellyaches and Eight Till Late.

They have played in support of Blossoms, Spring King, The Amazons and Prides around the UK and appeared at festivals such as Y NOT in the Peak District, the Isle of Wight Festival and Kendal Calling.

Another new band, The Faim, are calling in to Sheffield on their State of Mind world tour, promoting their new album of the same name.

The Australian rockers have already completed a sell-out tour of the UK and Europe this year, playing more than 150 shows in the past 13 months.

The band were said to have been created out of a high school music assignment at home in Perth and their musical influences include indie rock, jazz and pop-punk.

Singer Josh Raven said: “Time has come to open our State of Mind. It’s hard to believe that four guys from Perth are even announcing these shows for our headline tour.

“We’re bringing our craziness to new cities with new songs and playing more incredible festivals like Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds and Frequency Festival.

“This is beyond humbling and it’s all possible because of the incredible relationship we’ve created with you.”

Following their launch in February 2018, The Faim have unveiled their critically-acclaimed debut EP, Summer is a Curse, toured exhaustively, supported PVRIS, Hands Like Houses, Sleeping with Sirens and Against the Current.

They appear at the Corporation in Sheffield on August 31. To book visit www.corporation.org.uk
