Dust off your velvet, Sunday night is our TradGoth night -
Waterglass have been making critically acclaimed Gothic music since the early nineteen-nineties. Their new album '...and the bleak shall inherit' retains the fragility and atmosphere that won earlier releases many admirers but takes them in a darker direction, exploring alienation, breakdown, ageing and regret. A malevolently neurotic intensity has infected their characteristic melodic languor but their capacity to connect emotionally with a live audience is undiminished. The bleak shall inherit; and you have been invited to the reading of the will.
Last July are a Dark Romantic/Electro-Goth band from the East of England, featuring ex-members of Rome Burns and All Living Fear, who blend dark electronics with driving guitars and strong passionate vocals.
Initially formed as a two-piece, Last July quickly gained a following after playing to a packed audience at the Resolution Hotel during Whitby Goth Weekend in October 2009, closely followed by a favourable article in Unscene Magazine. After a number of gigs across the country they released their début EP 'Nothing Else But You' gaining welcoming reviews and airplay on internet radio.In 2011 Last July's sound and stage presence increased tenfold with the addition of Nevla (ex-Rome Burns/All living Fear) on guitar. The band went from strength to strength with a string of successful gigs including festival appearances and support slots with some all-time goth greats. The following year saw them embark on recording their first full-length album 'A True Story of a Lie' before going on to increase in number, welcoming new bass player H (ex-Rome Burns) into the fold. A very successful gig on the main stage at Whitby Goth Weekend marked the culmination of their best year so far.
Heading into the new year infused with confidence and with the writing of their next album already producing strong material, you can expect to see a lot more of Last July in 2013.
Skeletal Family is a gothic rock band which formed in Keighley, West Yorkshire, England in December, 1982.
