Hull Line-up

Joining Doves & Idlewild in Hull next Thursday are The Hubbards. A Hull based band who are well worth a listen. Check them out here.

Final tickets for the show are on sale here.

In other news, it was quietly announced at first but Sub Sub are making a return! Albeit a DJ set at the Warehouse Project, which is now housed at the Mayfield Depot, which across from Piccadilly station in Manchester of course.

A good looking line-up, which is headlined by the ever popular Hacienda Classical. I believe this has featured a certain Sub Sub track in the past!

Tickets are on sale here.

White Flowers

Doves announced on Friday that White Flowers would be joining them at Gunnersville, London on September 6th.

Tickets for the gig are on sale now.

Here’s the press blurb on White Flowers, with an obvious interest for fans of Doves…

White Flowers are a duo from Preston blending drum machine, guitar, synth and haunting vocals to create their own noir world. The duo’s debut album has been produced by Doves’ Jez Williams and is due for release in early 2020.

White Flowers released their ‘Glimmer’ EP  last October, which was celebrated by The Line Of Best Fit as “arguably one of this year’s strongest debuts”.

The band’s first single from their debut album, ‘Porta’, is due to be released this September.

Once again, thanks to mancbob for the “rough” setlist! Folks from the USA, Canada & Australia have traveled over for the 3 gigs this weekend! You folks have fun!

Brighton & Hove News reviewed the gig:

It’s an explosive set, covering their career to date. Every song has the crowd singing – and Jimi (who seems to be suffering with his throat a bit – some spray helps), looks genuinely touched by the support. He seems really humbled by the crowd joining in with songs from over 10 years ago, like he can’t believe they still remember the words!

An amazing experience to have seen this cult band, at such a unique venue. I shall never forget it.

Jimi, Kendal Interview

Brighton photo

I’m told the Brighton setlist was the same as London, including Spaceface! The rain poured on Brighton this evening throughout the gig, so I will let the folks dry out before expecting to hear anything more back regarding the show.

Anyhow, thanks to Dan Hisgett for posting images of the Kendal Calling programme on the Doves fans facebook group, which includes a really fascinating interview with Jimi. Lots regarding new Doves material, which by all accounts in the media so far, we should expect something next year! Exciting times. Is it too much to expect something before the end of the year? An EP perhaps?! Here’s the interview, click on the images to read the interview.

Yes, Doves most certainly tore the roof off the Royal Albert Hall. As gigs go, that night will live long in the memory for anyone that was there!
