Terrorvision, The Wildhearts, and Reef are going out on tour.
Remember '98? Remember the dull, tail end of Britpop? Well amidst those ruins a clutch of new rock acts emerged, swiftly billed as 'Britrock' by some unimaginative individual.
A lot of those bands hold a special place in the hearts of people-of-a-certain age, however, and this new tour will no doubt fire up those embers.
Yep, Terrorvision, The Wildhearts, and Reef, playing five huge shows next year with a different line up each night.
Tony Wright of Terrorvision says: “It’s going to be great to find out what was going on in the 90s and what it sounded like. I’ve seen the pics and so I know we were there – but to experience it first-hand will be ace!”
Reef’s Gary Stringer adds: “Really amped to be hitting the road this May and joining up with the guys from Terrorvision and The Wildhearts, it’s gonna be a blast! See you there, happy days.”
Ginger of The Wildhearts explains: “We are honoured to be a part of this legendary tour. Mainly because it means that we’re still alive, but also because it gives us a chance to prove that we were always the best band of this whole bunch.”
Dubbed 'Britrock Must Be Destroyed' it's coming to a venue near you next year...
