Allusondrugs appear in Carlisle alongside Cumbrian favourites


YORKSHIRE rockers Allusondrugs return to Carlisle next week for a headline show at The Brickyard.

The hotly-tipped four-piece lead a line-up that also includes Cumbrian acts Droll Man, Graces and Glass Phantoms on Friday June 23.

Formed in the summer of 2012, Allusondrugs have a very individual take on a melding of psych-pop-grunge, which has caught the eyes and ears of the likes of Kerrang, BBC Radio 1, NME, Q Magazine, Punktastic and Rock Sound, as well as audiences across the UK.

Touring throughout 2016 saw the band building a solid live fan-base following high-profile support tours with bands such as Enter Shikari, Marmozets, Lonely The Brave and We Are The Ocean, and appearing on the first-ever Scuzz tour, which saw them appear at The Brickyard alongside Press To Meco and Max Raptor.

In November 2015 they released their latest EP, Am I Weird? and have since been working on newer material to include in the set.

Grunge rock band Droll Man will be looking to impress a hometown crowd. The genre-bending quartet, featuring ex-members of local favourites Mister MaƱana, blend melodic post-rock and crushing buzzsaw riffs in an expansive, scuzzed-up sound, which can be heard on their two EPs to date - Ten and Nine.

Carlisle and Penrith band Graces - now based out of Sheffield - pay a return visit to the county armed with new single, Smile, for which they've just released a video for.

They have been lauded by both BBC Introducing programmes in Cumbria and Sheffield, and the show in Carlisle arrives between appearances at Moonfest and Touch Down Festival.

Completing the line-up will be Kendal's Glass Phantoms. Since putting out their debut single last year, the four-piece heavy blues band have made a big impression on the Cumbrian rock scene and across the North West, with a number of shows in Manchester and an appearance on the bill at last autumn's Milecastle 66 festival.

Doors for the Carlisle show open at 7pm, and tickets are available in advance from The Brickyard.
