Mayhem

Wednesday 14th October

Academy 2

By the power of darkness and with the might of black-hearted will no two Mayhem albums have been or will ever be the same. Over the course of Mayhem’s storied and ground breaking 35-year career—from Deathcrush (1987) through Esoteric Warfare (2014)—the Norwegians have continuously challenged the orthodoxy of the genre they helped create. In 2019, Mayhem released their latest studio album, Daemon.
Daemon isn’t a direct follow-up to Esoteric Warfare. Like all Mayhem albums of their time, Daemon is unto itself. Indeed, this album also isn’t a new chapter in Mayhem’s storied career. Rather, it’s a new tone, authoritative yet wild in character.  Daemon is change, an opportunity for the maw of hell to open wider. The album was also the byproduct of irascible and captious individuals. Anger, frustration, and the continued struggle to push—at whatever cost—the band’s music forward were at the dark heart of Mayhem’s newest album.
The five-year wait for Daemon is something all fans prepared for, with the understanding that Mayhem, in whatever guise it presents itself, will always return greater than before, stronger than ever yet still true to its roots.
The success of Daemon becomes evident on the international chart results. Mayhem reached No. 18 in the German Album Charts, No. 8 in the Finnish Combined Charts, No. 4 Finnish Physical Charts and No. 35 in the Austrian Album Charts. In November 2019 Mayhem toured alongside GosT and Gaahls Wyrd through Europe and sold out most of their shows.

Forming in Earlestown in 2017 and grew up together in the shadows of two huge North West neighbours, Manchester and Liverpool, The K’s are proving that things can in fact actually grow in the dark.

After watching a video of The Jam performing ‘In the City’ live at the Circus, vocalist/rhythm guitarist Jamie Boyle and bassist Dexter Baker were inspired to pick up guitars and see what noise they could make themselves.

The K’s were born and soon after drafted in experienced lead guitarist Ryan Breslin following discussions at an after-party they had all attended. A search for the right drummer was on to complete the vision. Almost immediately up stepped Jordan Holden, a young bespoke drum maker who’s energy and precision had heads nodding in approval right from his first rehearsal.

After taking Manchester by storm selling out Jimmys, Deaf Institue, Gorilla and then Academy 2, the band’s first UK tour also resulted in sell outs across the board, finally selling out The O2 Ritz, Manchester in just 3 weeks and then announcing a headline show at the Iconic Manchester Academy 1 for 2020.

The all-new, 11th solo show by Scotland’s international comedy star, hot on the heels of his ground-breaking, global smash-hit ‘Daniel Sloss: X’, comes to Manchester Academy.

 

The incredible ‘X’ tour sold out across 40 countries, with 300 shows including over 30 European countries, UK, U.S., Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and even packing a Moscow arena (becoming Russia’s biggest-ever English language comedy show). The film of ‘X’ is showing on HBO in U.S. and Canada and became the first UK comedy special to make its UK premiere in cinemas, with its nationwide release at Vue.

 

Daniel’s previous two Netflix specials ‘DARK’ & ‘Jigsaw’ are streaming in 190 countries, 26 languages with the infamous ‘Jigsaw’ now credited with breaking up over 75,000 couples and cited in over 130 divorces world-wide (with fans even bringing their divorce papers for him to autograph at shows). 

 

He has sold out six New York solo off-Broadway seasons, appeared on U.S TV’s ‘Conan’ ten times, broken box office records in Edinburgh and toured in over 50 countries - this is his new show and it’s a strictly limited tour – BOOK EARLY!

 

Martin Stephenson & The Daintees

'Salutation Road' 30th Anniversary + Support

Friday 23rd October

Academy 3

Martin is an extremely gifted singer, songwriter, musician and performer. Originally influenced by the punk rock era, his free spirit incorporated a musical range from rockabilly through show tunes and straight rock to the success of The Daintees, of which he was a founder member in the '80s. His early love of literature and music led to the formation of the first Daintees line-up in his early teens. After becoming something of a busking sensation, Newcastle record label Kitchenware signed Martin and The Daintees and sent them into the studio. After two singles, notable among which was 1982's intoxicating "Roll On Summertime", they release their debut album 'Boat To Bolivia'.
