Nottingham alt-rock trio KAGOULE will be showing their dedication to their fans this weekend as they gear up to play three shows in one day.

The band comments: "We bring to you what the Magi brought to young Jesus.  Three gifts.  Three is the largest number still written with as many lines as the number represents."

KAGOULE: LISTEN TO NEW SINGLE 'MADE OF CONCRETE'

As they prepare for the release of their debut album Urth, Nottingham’s KAGOULE have unveiled the new single ‘Made of Concrete’. Listen now at http://bit.ly/1JsmFZt. A more reflective track than previous singles ‘Glue’ and ‘Gush’, the ethereal ‘Made of Concrete’ sees bassist Lucy take lead vocals for a wistful and bittersweet performance.

Of the track, guitarist Cai says: “It came as a trapped sound in a Boss delay pedal box. Someone at the factory must’ve been humming in the right direction at the right time, the waves slipped through and the cardboard door sealed behind them. It journeyed over sea and land, benumbed by fear until I freed it from its torture and gave it a home (I think that's how sound works right?). It was one of the first songs I wrote for Kagoule. I think I was 15. After the initial 'Check out what this pedal can do' it hasn’t changed much, apart from the fact Lucy won the rights to sing it from me over a heated Beyblade tournament.”

Despite not yet being out of their teens, acclaim for the band has come from the likes of NME, The Guardian and Rolling Stone, plus great support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and XFM. Having previously shared stages with the likes of DRENGE, METZ, THE WYTCHES and ICEAGE, KAGOULE have just finished a series of dates with JOHNNY MARR and performed at Hyde Park alongside THE WHO.

KAGOULE will celebrate the release of Urth with a series of in-store performances at Rough Trade Nottingham and London’s Rough Trade East. Urth is released via Earache Records on August 21st 2015. Pre-order now on CD and vinyl at http://www.earache.com/kagoule

Urth is also available to pre-order on iTunes, including an exclusive bonus track plus instant downloads of 'Glue', 'Gush' and 'Made of Concrete'. Pre-order now for the limited-time offer of £4.99/€5,99/$6.99 at http://bit.ly/urth-itunes

BITERS RELEASE 'RESTLESS HEARTS' VIDEO FOLLOWING BRUSH WITH POLICE

Atlanta rock 'n' roll punks BITERS have released their edgy new music video for the track "Restless Hearts", which appears on their forthcoming debut album, 'Electric Blood'.

Filmed with director Video Rahim (MASTODON) on location in their hometown, the video for "Restless Hearts" sees BITERS pushing the limits of rock 'n' roll excess with a wild keg party, cruising the streets of Atlanta in a stolen police cruiser, and frontman Tuk surfing on the boot of a car whilst tearing down the road at 50mph.

Watch the extreme, uncensored video for "Restless Hearts" now on VEVO at http://vevo.ly/VX84YH

The video is also available to watch on YouTube at http://bit.ly/1KsLk5w

UK fans should also keep an eye on Kerrang! TV to see the video running in the Fresh Blood segment from today onwards.

Director Video Rahim discusses the band's run in with the law: "During the shoot, we mounted a camera to the front of a car to capture footage of Tuk and the band.  They drove off with the camera and shortly thereafter I received a call from Tuk saying he had been pulled over and thought he was going to jail.  I had to rush down and talk to the police officers to keep Tuk from being arrested."

"Standing on the trunk of a '70s Cadillac at 3am going 45-50mph and lip-synching while wearing Cuban heel boots was the best idea I've had in a long time," adds BITERS frontman Tuk.

BITERS' eagerly-anticipated debut album, 'Electric Blood', is due to be released on August 7th worldwide.  Pre-order the album now on CD and limited edition coloured vinyl at http://www.earache.com/biters

The album is also available to pre-order on iTunes with an exclusive bonus track as well as instant downloads of "Restless Hearts", "Low Lives in Hi Definition" and "Heart Fulla Rock 'n' Roll".  Pre-order 'Electric Blood' now on iTunes at http://bit.ly/electricblood-itunes

KAGOULE PREMIERE 'GLUE' MUSIC VIDEO ON VEVO

Nottingham alt-rock trio KAGOULE have premiered their new music video for the track "Glue" on VEVO.

The medieval-themed video was filmed with director Katia Ganfield (VINCE KIDD, LOYLE CARNER, T?L?, VUVUVULTURES) at Rickney Farm and Grubbs Burgers in Brighton and sees the band donning an assortment of handmade vintage garments for a truly eye-catching performance.

Watch "Glue" now on VEVO at http://vevo.ly/FBWdcw

The video is also available to watch on YouTube at https://youtu.be/Tv2l4ilSsMk

KAGOULE singer/guitarist Cai Burns speaks about how the song came to be:

"Glue popped into existence on New Year's Day of 2014.  The frame of the song was sat as a garage band file called 'so damn stuck' and it was a troublesome little dude.  Refused to be written.  I'm not sure exactly where my mind was on January 1st but it definitely wasn't in my head.  The next day I noticed this weird guitar riff I'd added that must've bypassed my brain was sat on top of the verse.  I layered some sticky lyrics on top of it and it was born, covered in a thick, pale afterbirth.  Ready to be plated, garnished and served."

Video director Katia Ganfield comments:

"The video is open to interpretation.  Rather than spoon-feeding a narrative to the audience as many strains of media adopt today, the aim is to encourage the viewer to adopt an open mind, inspiring philosophical thinking and sociological awareness.

"Carefully structured symbolic visuals aim to depict a dystopian reality (and the breaking of) through the characters and locations, which tie in with the song's lyrics, emanating illusions of grandeur, embroiled in blissful denial.  The knight character serves as a metaphor for our disenchantment and increasing apathy towards the wider socio-political conditions at play.  His tedious nature, though surrounded by frivolous opulence, aims to represent the disengaged electorate."

"Glue" is taken from KAGOULE's highly-anticipated debut album, 'Urth', which is due to be released on August 21st worldwide.  Pre-order the album now on CD and vinyl at http://www.earache.com/kagoule

'Urth' is also available to pre-order now on iTunes, including an exclusive bonus track plus instant downloads of the songs "Glue" and "Gush".  Pre-order now at http://bit.ly/urth-itunes
