Bombed Out and artist news

Another fantastic band from South Wales, Saturday's Kids play the kind of fuzzed-up, grungy post-punk that's a breath of fresh air.
I love it when a plan comes together. Late last year I fell head-over-heals in love with the 7" that Saturday's Kids recorded for Art For Blind Records. This year I get to be involved in putting our their latest 10”. Good times.
Saturday’s Kids are still a young band - and when I say young I mean “ID’s-at-the-bar” young - and yet they’ve already managed to self-release a couple of demo’s, a split with their friends Evariste Galois, the aforementioned 7” and, most recently, a split 10” with Kids Return. They’ve also managed a handful of tours and a session for BBC Radio Wales. Now that’s youthful exuberance for you!
The self-titled 10” is a split release between ourselves, Art For Blind and Germany’s Time As A Color Records and will be back from press shortly. The lads are playing a launch gig for the release with their mates Harbour, Facel Vega and Oui Messy on the 7th April (Facebook event here).
I’ll put up a full band page for them here soon but in the meantime I’ve added a song to the music player now. “The Old Comedians” is just a glimpse of what this band sound like as they really do mix things up a fair bit - from mellow Sebadoh-meets-Codeine indie rock to messy and spazzed out Gravity-esque hardcore and back, more often than not in the same song! It's the kind of flagrent disregard for sticking with the same formula that made bands like Fugazi or Sonic Youth so good. Yep, this band are really rather special.
UPDATE: Added all the dates for the band's upcoming European tour to our gigs page now. France, Germany, Slovenia, Serbia and Romania - here they come.
