Carpets are an original post punk/grunge band based in Manchester. The 3 piece pride themselves in their innovative live performances and deep, meaningful songs that keep the audience enthralled. The band have developed their own fanbase in Lincoln and have since moved on to Manchester where their music truly feels at home.

 

They are often described as a new sound developed out of the ashes of two genres that once made so many of the nation’s favourites. Without listening to the band they can only be described as the lovechild of Nirvana and Joy Division on acid. Stage diving, nose bleeds, group chants and unforgettable moments come together in a package guaranteed by a Carpets appearance.

The Dillinger Escape Plan is a band from Morris Plains, New Jersey, United States. The group originated in 1997 after the disbanding of Arcane, a hardcore punk trio consisting of Ben Weinman, Dimitri Minakakis, and Chris Pennie. The band performs a fast-tempo, technically proficient style of heavy music popularly known as mathcore. The band recorded their second EP with Relapse Records in 1998 entitled Under The Running Board. A year later, this was followed with the album Calculating Infinity, which was met with great acclaim from both underground and mainstream press. The band were renowned in the hardcore scene for the intensity of their performances, which have at times incorporated extensive light shows, fireworks, fire breathing, and other special effects.

The band’s lineup has changed over the years, in part due to a variety of injuries. Guitarist Ben Weinman and former drummer Chris Pennie have been present in many of the lineups. After the departure of vocalist Dimitri Minakakis in 2000, the band held a nationwide search and selected Greg Puciato as the new singer.

With recent announcements of live shows in South America and Europe in August, September and October, GLENN HUGHES, the legendary ‘Voice of Rock’, is extending his 2015 Solo Tour with new shows in the UK, spanning mid October into November.

 

Joining Hughes for his UK shows, will be DOUG ALDRICH (Revolution Saints & formerly Whitesnake, Dio) as guitar player and powerhouse Swedish drummer and longtime solo band member, PONTUS ENGBORG, rounding out the Trio.

 

The set will showcase highlights from Glenn's colourful career: Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Country Communion, California Breed along with his Solo material.

 

Commenting on the UK dates, Hughes says:

 

"It's always a great pleasure for me to play in the UK. I have lived in Los Angeles most of my life, but my career started back in the UK.

 

I love my fans, and personally interact with them online, or at venues on my travels. There is no greater high than performing and to reach out to my fanbase.

 

Joining my Band on Tour, will be Doug Aldrich, former Whitesnake and Dio Guitar player. Ronnie introduced me to Doug years ago, and I felt it was time to ask Doug to Rock with me.

 

It's gonna be E P I C…".

 

Support for the tour is Jared James Nichols who recently released his debut EP Old Glory & The Wild Revival.
