Our autumn is looking very busy! Less than a month after the finish of "Masterminds UK TOUR" Plastic Barricades are back on some really cool stages. On Saturday we've played a set at our favourite Old Queen's Head in London as part of huge Oxjam Charity Festival. 2750 bands were playing gigs and raising money for Oxfam charity around the country on Saturday! That is pretty impressive!
On the 1st of November the band will be opening Nightmare Festival on the fabulous stage of Dingwalls in London. 120 bands in 11 venues in London's Camden celebrating Halloween! Gonna be EPIC!
15th of November will see PB conquering South-West London at the beautiful Tooting Tram & Social, named one of the "19 coolest venues in UK" by Shortlist magazine, only 4 were in London, by the way! Expect chandaliers, theatre-like decor and.... FREE ENTRY!!
On the 22nd of November trio will be back in Nottingham for an exclusive show at The Doghouse and on the 28th of November conclude the gigging year of 2014 by a set at the famous Wheatsheaf as part of Oxford City Festival.
Oh yeah - that is not it! In between all the gigs we will pop into the studio and record couple of songs, one of which will be released as the third and final single of the upcoming album in December 2014. Official release date to follow soon - so keep your eyes peeled! And see you on the gigs!!
Plastic Barricades’ first ever UK Tour is now officially over.
13 gigs in 11 cities in the last month. That was one FANTASTIC experience! We’ve travelled 3112 miles, met so many lovely people, made new friends and fans, played our favourite songs and couldn’t believe that the audience knew the lyrics and was singing them with us. We’ve shared the stage with the best of British bands and celebrated 1 year since our first gig with Dani and Frazer.
We’ve helped the homeless and got our rear wiper torn off by monkeys in Liverpool, found King Arthur’s round table in Winchester, had two dogs in the audience and a talking parrot in the hotel in Sheffield, tried to speak Welsh in Cardiff, went on air in Bristol, found Harry Potter lair in Oxford, discovered that Converse are not trainers and got almost kicked out of the venue we’ve just played in Nottingham, went to the beach in Brighton, played “dressing room pool” in Leicester, made friends from Brazil in Doncaster and had the time of our lives at the legendary Barfly in London.
Very exciting gig announcements coming up this week, PB will play several festivals in October and November. Stay tuned for more updates! Meanwhile, check our GALLERY section for pictures from "Masterminds UK Tour 2014"
Plastic Barricades have packed their hard cases: the band is getting ready to hit the road with “Masterminds UK Tour 2014”. Warm-up gig took place in London’s Battersea Park during Summer Breeze festival last Sunday.
The journey will start on the 15th of August at legendary Lomax in Liverpool and then continue to Sheffield, Winchester, Cardiff, Bristol, Oxford, Brighton and Doncaster. Two very special hometown shows will take place on the 17th of August (The Albert, Mile End, London – UplugTV launch party) and 19th of September (Barfly, Camden, London). The band will play Thunderfest in Bristol, Hub Festival in Cardiff and Hope Festival in Liverpool.
Dan Kert (vocals, guitars, keyboards): “This has been a very eventful year so far. Plastic Barricades have released two singles – “Shine!” and “Masterminds”, got a bunch of pretty impressive reviews and tons of airplay for those; got voted to play a gig at the legendary Hard Rock Cafe London competing in Global Battle of the Bands; won a spot at Camden Rocks Festival; organized our own single launch party at the Old Queen’s Head and spent 3 months booking the tour without any help from outside the band. And now it comes to life, we are ready to go! That is wonderful!”
Fans will have a unique opportunity of buying exclusive and very limited “Shine!” and “Masterminds” CD singles, signed and numbered by the band. Each gig will also have a very special video installation and stage decorations.
Full list of dates:
15.08 – Lomax, Liverpool
