Help Save Newport's Le Pub Music Venue - Already Heard
On Monday November 3rd, Midland hardcore punk band We Fight Like Kids release their
debut EP, 'Superficial Behaviour'. However we're premiering their new video for 'Falconer'
right here on Already Heard.
For Scottish quartet Alburn, their latest EP ('Mouthful of Glass') has been a longtime coming. Having undergone a slight line-up since their formation in 2007, 'Mouthful of Glass'
showcases a significant amount of growth and maturity. We spoke to Pete Duthie to ask him about the bands background, that inevitable Brand New comparison, the Scottish music
scene and more.
On first listen we fell in love Noyo Mathis and knew that 'Endure' needed to be heard. It's post hardcore meets emo meets indie meets math rock. Take a listen to the full EP right here.
Without a doubt Neck Deep are one of this years breakout bands. After kicking off the year
with the release of their debut LP, 'Wishful Thinking', the Wrexham pop-punk five piece
haven’t stopped touring since. From festival appearances throughout the UK and Europe to 2 months in North America as part of the Vans Warped Tour. We caught up with vocalist Ben Barlow and bassist Fil Thorpe-Evans at the Leeds Festival. They discussed their past festival experiences, supporting Blink-182, their up and coming UK headline tour and being
“leaders” of the UK pop-punk movement.
Packing stadium sized rock anthems with an incredibly striking emotional punch, and graced with one of the most staggeringly unique vocal talents to have graced the UK Rock scene in a long time, Cambridge’s Lonely The Brave have become one of the single most talked about new bands to emerge in recent years. With their debut album ‘The Day’s War’ finally released this week, Already Heard caught up with lead guitarist Mark Trotter and Bassist
Andrew Bushen at last weekend’s Leeds Festival.
We've got a full review, live photos and interviews from one of the highlights of the summer - Leeds Festival.

Help Save Newport’s Le Pub Music Venue

Newport, South Wales music venue Le Pub has unfortunately been put up for sale due to the fact that the current owner could no longer afford to keep it running.

However an online Crowdfunder campaign has been launched by promoters Sŵn and Sam Harries to save the venue. The campaign is looking to raise £20,000.

Full details can be found here.

A message from Sŵn and Sam Harries :

“Newport venue Le Pub is up for sale. The current owner can no longer run the business and needs to sell. So far, everyone who has gone to look around it wants to turn it into a wine bar, or flats. After the closure of Newport TJs we don’t want that to happen to Le Pub.

Welsh promoters Sŵn and the manager of Le Pub, Sam Harries, are launching a campaign to Save Le Pub. We have the expertise to run the venue, to book more shows in the spirit with which the venue has been operating and to help market the venue to more people. What we don’t have is enough money to buy the venue and carry out the re-decoration that Le Pub desperately needs.

So we need your help. And fast. We need to raise the extra capital to purchase Le Pub and restore it to its former glory so it can remain open and continue as a space for live music in Newport.

We know we need at least £20,000. That’s a lot of money. But there’s a lot of you. People who have watched bands in Le Pub, drunk in Le Pub, played in Le Pub or want to play in Le Pub. Whatever you can contribute will help.

Help us Save Le Pub.

Sŵn & Sam Harries
