ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT ARE BACK!
Direct from San Diego, California, ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT return to the UK in December 2013 for their first shows in almost a decade. The band have confirmed six gigs in a week of whistle stop, ass-kickin’ rock and roll. Lucky people in the following cities will witness the return of one of the greatest live bands of all time!
1st MANCHESTER Gorilla
2nd NEWCASTLE The Cluny – SOLD OUT
3rd GLASGOW Classic Grand
4th LEEDS Brudenell Social Club – SOLD OUT
6th LONDON Koko
7th DUBLIN Button Factory
As a special treat for their legion of UK fans, RFTC have produced six different Limited Edition One-Sided 7” Vinyl Singles to commemorate each date of the tour. Six singles, six cover versions of a band or singer from the city they’re playing in.
Each 7” is limited to 400 copies with only 100 available at each show.
Glasgow: Gerry Rafferty
Leeds: Red Lorry Yellow Lorry
London: Status Quo
Dublin: Boomtown Rats
Recorded in an afternoon of fun and madness earlier this year, these singles are the most recent additions to over thirty 7”s produced by the band over the course of their career.
A career which has seen them blow the roof off Top of The Pops, adorn the covers of magazines and soundtrack the lives of punks and rockers alike, Rocket From The Crypt has cemented their place as the foremost rock and roll band of their generation.
