Bombed Out and artist news

Our favourite Swedish friends will be joining us for our 15th Anniversary Celebration this October
Kelly 8 joined Bombed Out way back in 2002 and to this day are the only band we've ever chosen to work with on the strength of a demo alone. Two demo's in fact which went on to become the bands first release (minus one song that was released on Deep Elm's Emo Diaries Chapter 8 compilation).
The Setup came out early 2003 to coincide with a short tour with The Mercy Suite and an appearance at that year's NYNS all-dayer. We quickly became good friends (all 3 members of Bombed Out went along for the ride!). 2 further albums (2004's The Technique Of Pushing Someone Forward and 2009's The Union) and a brilliant tour with Dugong followed before the band decided to call it a day back in 2010.
We had discussed them visiting for NYNS '11 to play one last gig in the UK but when that fell through it felt like we'd never get that chance again... Well never say never!
Now fully confirmed (i.e. flights booked) we're chuffed to announce that the band will be back together one last time to play our birthday gig on October 5th at The Brudenell in Leeds (Facebook event thingy here). Come along and give them a fitting farewell!
