I Said Selfie….

Your selfies are wanted!!

Evening purps! As you may or may not know we are in the process of finishing touches to our next single “I Said No”. We are going to try something different for the art work and involve the people that support us. We are asking for you to send us your selfies!! Not just any selfie it must have the words “I Said No” across your mouth either on a bit of paper or something else if your feeling creative! Our favourite will be the main artwork for the single… although we will be looking use/incorporate all the entries.

Start sending everyone… direct message to Facebook or twitter or email to purplestereo@hotmail.co.uk

The picture below will give you the idea of what we are after.

Peace out



Introducing Purple Stereo

Its been a hectic few weeks….

Firstly would like to apologize to everyone who was due to come to the Giffard Arms, Wolverhampton to see us, but in the end Paul just wasn’t well enough to play.  We would only want to play if we are all at 100% and didn’t feel it would be fair to everyone who had paid to see us and unfair to the venue and other bands to have us not at the races!

There are a few dates that are unfortunatley being cancelled/re-arranged which are…

June 23rd Castle & Falcon (being re-arranged)

September 9th Stourport Civic (Cancelled by promoter)

We have taken a small break to re group and will be back at Shabbey Road this week to resume recording.  We are hoping to have some new music ready in time for July.

On a more positive note it was amazing to hear ‘Dead Man’s Soul’ on BBC introducing!  A massive thank you to Louise Brierley and Jack Parker at BBC WM introducing for playing Dead Man’s Soul and giving us a shout out!

To keep the positive vibe going next outing on the horizon is our debut appearance at this years Warton Music Festival.  We cant wait for this one, we are playing on Sunday but will be around the whole weekend soaking in the atmosphere and beer!

Have a watchful eye on the Twitter and Facebook for any update and gig announcements.

Keep it Purple

Do I Detect A Hint Of Pigeon?

Well it’s been a while since our last blog post and a lot has happened… it seems to have flown by.

Firstly would like to officially welcome Jack Bayliss to Purple Stereo. Jack did an awesome job filling in at late notice for the gig at the Robin 2 in January and since then has joined full time!

Now Jack is up to speed we have some gigs pencilled in for the rest of the year as well as some new material which hopefully will get released later in the year.

The most exciting news is that Purple Stereo will be at this years Warton Music Festival alongside a host of great bands including The Pigeon Detectives. The rumours so far are that Purple Stereo will be in attendance all weekend in a ten man tent! Just rumours at this time of course! Warton Music Festival is July 20th to 22nd, at Bentley Farm, Tamworth. We can’t confirm which day we will be playing at this time but as soon as we know you’ll know! Tickets are available from the official website http://www.wartonmusicfestival.co.uk more bands are still to be confirmed.

Our next outing sees us return to the Actress and Bishop in Birmingham courtesy of the legendary Catapult Club, gracing the stage on March 24th.

More shows are in the pipeline so keep a look out for those popping up via Facebook and Twitter and our Official site.

We will see you at the Actress!!

Jon, Paul, Alex, Matt and Jack

Happy Jack

We at Purple Stereo would like to thank all of you who got in touch reference our need for a drummer. We were genuinely surprised to see the quality of some of the er… applicants so a genuine thanks from us all.

We think its time now, after a fantastic gig last night, to announce the vacancy is now “filled” and we’d like you all to join us in welcoming Jack Bay on board!

We are all very excited about exploring some new directions in 2018 and look forward to seeing you all at a gig very soon!!!





A New Beginning


We are unfortunately having to announce that Neil ‘Crasher’ Worsfold has decided to leave Purple Stereo.  It’s not the result of a fall out but Neil has come to the decision that he can no longer commit fully to the band.  We are of course sad to see him go and wish him well.

Moving forward we are still finishing off the singles we have been working on at Shabbey Road and will be releasing those as planned.

We are now on the search for a drummer so please share or apply within.

Keep it Purple

Warm The Kettle Up Al!

Its blog time again! Just a short update…

The new songs are nearly all recorded now and just the finishing touches adding.  Its been a longer process than we planned for but we are hoping that it will prove worth the wait!  There has been plenty for tea and caramel lattes involved and the occasional beer…. We are quite civilised at Shabbey Road, it wont be long before someone brings a coffee table and a biscuit tin.  The outcome of all the time in Shabbey Road will result in us releasing 9 tracks across 3 single releases.  Still undecided as to whether it will turn into an album as yet, I’m sure it will.  A few of the tracks we have had for and while and for those who have seen us live recently they will recognise.

In other news…. The Purple Stereo Darts Championship has entered its second season with a chance for Neil to redeem himself after his woeful showing first time around.

Anyway more updates coming soon!!

Keep it Purple!


Got any Merch!?

Right time for the standard post gig blog that I enjoy writing, but does anyone read I wonder!?

First of all massive thanks to Mark and Percy’s for having us back and for another great night! Percy’s is fast becoming out favourite gig. The staff are brilliant and everyone who comes along to watch is always having a great time and always asks us for more which we came prepared for this time….we’ll sort of.

It was a pleasure to meet and play alongside Scream Of Sirens(pet) those girls rocked it! Hopefully we will get to play alongside them again. So a great night all round and hopefully we can get back to Percy’s soon.

A few things to let you know all know about is 1… the official website address has now changed to www.purplestereo.wixsite.com/psuk after a horrendous experience with our account at moonfriut who I don’t mind name dropping to say how poor the service provided actually was!

Also we are back at Shabbey Road tonight to put the finishing touches to a set of 3 singles we have lined up for release in the near future…. dates to follow.

And finally we are well into the darts tournament with a few minor upset but favourite Fletch proving hard to beat, other conclusions are that non darter Jon is better than Neil “the badger” Worsfold!!

Keep It Purple !!

Jon, Paul, Alex, Matt, & Neil
