80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster have confirmed an extra live show and plans for new material.
During their initial run, 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster were - how best to put this? - lively. When performing, frontman Guy McKnight would often emerged from shows soaked in blood, beer, spit and vomit while the audience didn't fare much better.
So when the band confirmed plans to get back together, Clash wondered if they could match those incendiary heights. Thankfully, a pair of London shows have born witness to a rejuvenated version of 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster: all flailing limbs, colliding riffs and wailing vocals the band took Hallowe'en by the lapels and threw it around the room.
Now the band have outlined plans for extra shows and new material. "After standing on stage together again, selling out this tour and receiving such an incredible response from you all, it's become clear we're now hitting our stride. This month The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster has taken on a life of its own, and musically we have unfinished business together".
"So we're going to record some new songs to set alight the next UK show, which will be at 02 Shepherd's Bush Empire on Friday 12th April 2013. The story continues."
80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster are set to play the following show:
