Rag’n’Bone Man, AKA Rory Graham, releases his new single Skin, out now on Best Laid Plans / Columbia Records. Taken from his debut album Human which was released on February 10 to mass critical acclaim, the album was immediately certified gold and swiftly certified platinum just 3 weeks later having spent 2 consecutive weeks at the number 1 spot in the UK charts.
The phenomenal success of Human has resonated around the globe on an equally outstanding scale, with the album surpassing an amazing 1 million sales worldwide and hitting the number 1 spot on iTunes in over 30 countries. A hugely successful recent trip to the US saw Rory make his second US TV performance (following a recent appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show) on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and play a sold out show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. Rory also made his SXSW debut last week where he played a plethora of packed shows across Austin, Texas.
Having won two BRIT Awards - making Rory the first BRITs Critics’ Choice Award winner to win Best British Breakthrough Act in the same year - Rory is now back on the road performing and doing what he loves best. Currently on tour playing sold out shows across Europe, Rory arrives back in the UK from April 18 onwards where he will play a series of further sold out dates, including two nights at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire. His summer festival schedule is also booking up fast where he’ll perform at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival, Wildlife, Parklife, Live At Leeds, Isle Of Wight, TRNSMT, Bestival, plus many more.

Calling the track a “twisted love song,” lead singer Rena Lovelis says that “Break My Heart” was inspired by over-romanticizing the painful part of a break-up. “It’s about how, in a relationship, you go through these phases — the first date, the first kiss, the honeymoon — and then after you’ve experienced all the amazing parts of that love, you want to go to the dark side. You want this person to break your heart so you can feel what it’s like to long for them and to feel so desperate that you’ll do anything to get them back. So it’s kind of masochistic!”
Hey Violet will perform “Guys My Age” on US TV show, Late Night With Seth Meyers on March 21st. They are currently working on their debut album, which will be out later this year via Virgin EMI. In the meantime, the band which is Rena, her sister Nia Lovelis (drums), Miranda Miller (keys, vocals), Casey Moreta (lead guitar) and Iain Shipp (bass) are currently on a sold out US tour. UK fan will get the chance to see the band live this spring, dates below;
UK TOUR DATES IN MAY
8TH – LONDON, THE GARAGE
9TH – GLASGOW, O2 ABC 2
10TH – MANCHESTER, SOUND CONTROL
“Break My Heart” is the follow-up to Hey Violet’s smash single “Guys My Age”, which was named one of the Best Songs of 2016 by The New York Times and one of the 20 Best Songs of 2016 by V Magazine. The video for the single also racked up over 10 million views. The band are currently featured on the March cover of Alternative Press.
Hey Violet’s current EP Brand New Moves, debuted as the #1 artist album on iTunes in the U.S. and U.K. The Los Angeles Times compared their move “from grimy punk to shiny pop” to the Go-Go’s, while Galore declares front woman Rena Lovelis, “emits an unheard of level of rock-stardom for such a small girl without even singing a single note. But when she does sing, it’s as if Courtney Love, Gwen Stefani, and Hayley Williams crashed into each other and made a whole new generation of rock star.”

Following on from an incredible 2016 that saw her take the UK by the pink, fluffy balls, London's most charismatic rising star Girli announces the release of new single 'Not That Girl', taken from her forthcoming new 'Feel OK' EP out this April 11th - which features Lethal Bizzle on the title track.
Opening her new single "Take off my clothes and it's me underneath them, this is full time not just me on the weekend", Girli's statement of intent is as strong as ever. 'Not That Girl' sees Girli's characteristic vocal comes to the forefront of the track whilst Black Butter singer and producer King Henry (Major Lazer, Beyoncé) provides a stripped back, slick beat. The 'Feel OK' EP also sees London grime MC Lethal Bizzle jump on the title track with Girli with production from Diztortion (Lethal Bizzle, Tinie Tempah) as well as finishing with the Dimitri Tikovoi-produced 'Find My Friends', which recalls the frenzied chaos and everyday observation of her earlier track 'ASBOys'.
Speaking on the track, Girli explains "'Not That Girl' is a shout out to the smirks I get on the tube for wearing what I wear, the horror in strangers' faces when they see my pink hair, the sneering guys outside the pub who think that I care. It is the quiet knowledge that as long as I continue to be who I am and not the girl that others would like me or expect me to be, that I will overall come out on top. It's a mockery of mockery, a song of low-key empowerment in knowing that you're the only one who understands why you do what you do."
One of London's most polarizing artists, Girli has been garnering a loyal fan base since the release of her debut double A side "So You Think You Can Fuck With Me Do Ya / ASBOys" in 2015. Since then Girli has come in leaps and bounds, working with a series of incredible producers and writers whilst being championed by the likes of i-D, DIY, Noisey and the Guardian.
Girli's live shows are a raucous whirlwind of teenage chaos from start to finish. Following a support tour with Oscar and a series of sold out headline shows (including a partnership with UK collective Girls Against) GIRLI will be heading out on the road again for two headline shows this April at London's Electrowerkz and Glasgow's Stereo.
11th April - London - Electrowerkz - Tickets
14th April - Glasgow - Stereo - Tickets
