Female duo We Rock Like Girls Donâ€™t play The Bull on Friday April 9th as part of the successful â€˜The Raging Bullâ€™ night organised by Colchester band The 633 that puts on touring bands with local support once a month.
We Rock Like Girls Donâ€™t were formed when Glaswegian guitarist and vocalist Ros Cairney moved to London and met Greek and London drummer Vas Antoniadou.
Last year was a defining one for the band as they signed to Domino Publishing Company in August and subsequently went to Seattle to record new material with US producer John Goodmanson, (Gossip, Death Cab For Cutie, Wu Tang Clan) resulting in the new single Welcome To My World which fuses rock â€˜n roll musicianship, stripped vocals and pop choruses.
The year ended on a high when the bandâ€™s album â€˜How Did It Get To Thisâ€™ was short listed for Best British Debut Album of the year at the XFM 2010 New Music Awards. The album, released last March, received rave reviews including getting 8/10 in the NME who described it as â€œthe kind of awesome rock record we don’t hear often enough.â€
We Rock Like Girls Donâ€™t gig at The Raging Bull is part of a UK tour, promoting their new single Welcome To My World / Feeling Lonely Now which is released as a double A side on April 26th. A recent live review said the â€œspectacularâ€ band played â€œan astonishingly fantastic set with jaw-dropping musicianship.â€
Hereâ€™s your chance to see for yourself at The 633 Presents Raging Bull in The Music Room of The Bull, Crouch Street on Friday April 9th.
Support on the night comes from Vellocetta and The 633 (acoustic set).
Doors open at 8pm and admission is free.
