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

Out Of The Black & Into The Red…

It’s been a while since our last blog, but we have been busy at shabbey road getting some new songs rehearsed and spent a lot of time mixing tracks before we release them. No official date yet but once we are happy with them we will be getting them live! Next gig is our return to Percy’s in Whitchurch 16th September and it was an amazing gig last time out and looking forward to getting back there!

So until then here’s some proof of how busy we have been at Shabbey Road……

Review From The Robin 2

We are still busy writing and recording at Shabbey Road but here is a little review from our gig with the Sex Pissed Dolls at the Robin 2.

Here is our bit….

So we’re coming up to Christmas and what better way to celebrate than have five young ladies pounding out a mixture of punk classics and original songs. By the name you might be forgiven thinking that the Sex Pissed Dolls are just a bunch of girls playing at being a Sex Pistols tribute – but you’d be wrong, far wrong in fact. These girls can play, and they play very well indeed and despite the band’s name they play a totally mental mixture of good old fashioned punk classics mixed in with songs written by the band. All of which made for a mad night in Bilston.

Support on the night was provided by Purple Stereo, from just up the road in Willenhall, followed by The Bitten, from Wolverhampton.

Both bands brought their respective supporters along to swell the numbers and both supplied a mix of rock and punk delivered with much vim and vigour which was pretty bloody good.

Purple Stereo opened the proceedings with a set of half a dozen songs, all of which can be heard on Souncloud if you missed the gig or just fancy reminiscing. The band started with Dead Man’s Soul from the EP of the same name. The five songs that followed were all good, solid rock music that warmed the spirits on what was an otherwise dismal night outside. These lads have a very accomplished and likeable sound, nothing too extreme just good quality original music that’s easy to listen to. These are a band worth going to see if they play near you. The songs will all appear on their next album but not before they release their new single, I Said No, and supporting video which are in production right now. You can keep up with what the band are doing by visiting their website: www.purplestereo.com
