Just Drop A Harmony In


It has been an interesting and productive few weeks for the single which we are pleased to say is finished. We have been working on a few finishing touches and deciding on the B-sides to go with it.

Now the nice surprise…

About a month ago we saw a tweet from Ravi Kesavaram (My Vitriol) offering his services to mix and master any tracks. We decided to send a message and to our surprise we got a reply. After a few messages and calls Ravi was more than happy to have a listen to the track and got to work right away. To say that we are pleased with the results is an understatement, the track has been brought to life and seems to capture our live sound. Ravi has even put some harmonies in the chorus which has added a whole new layer and dimension to the track. We would like to say a massive thank you to Ravi for putting so much of his time and effort into the track, and for producing a fantastic result!

I Said No will be the first release with Jack on board and there are plenty more on the way!

We would also like to say a massive thank you to Natalie who sent us a great selfie which we just had to use as the artwork!

All that is left to say for now is September 21st is the date you need put in your diary, and 59p is what you need to save from your paycheck!

Keep it Purple!

Jon, Paul, Alex, Matt and Jack


I Said No will be available on iTunes, Spotify and all other online services from 21st September 2018.

The track list will comprise of…

The Life We Made


Read – Between The Lines

After spending a weekend in a tent with warm beer, and a pack of hobnobs for company its back to normal civilised living for us.  We had an amazing time at Warton Music Festival and cant thank everyone who was involved enough for making us feel so welcome.  We hope we get ourselves an invite back for next year after a great debut in our opinion obviously.

Its time to look forward to our next release which we have been working on now for quite sometime at Shabbey Road.  Our new single “I Said No” is starting to take shape.  We have a little surprise in store for this one, that we cant say to much about at the moment but will be announced in the next few weeks or so. Its taking us longer than usual but we have our reasons this time, after all there are finelines between just good and great. As things stand it will be a 3 track single which will be available on all the usual music download and stream sites iTunes, Spotify, Amazon etc.

We would like to thank all of you who submitted your selfies, we have decided on our favorite and have completed the cover design.  There is a teaser below of the artwork for I Said No.  The full reveal of the cover will be in the next few weeks along with a release date.

The next gig is at The Robin 2, Bilston supporting Motorheadache (Motorhead) August 16th.  Tickets are £11 from us of £12.50 on the door, so save yourself half a pint or a lemonade and message us for tickets.

So until then peace out


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.

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
