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



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 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!!

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:

Silence Of The Lambs… ish

After a great weekend at the The Robin 2 its time for our usual review!
As you know we supported the magnificent Sex Pissed Dolls ( The Dolls ) with another top band, The Bitten.
The bitten opened with a great selection of energetic punk rock, a perfect introduction to the evening and great guys to chat with after the show!
Then it was our turn, opening with Slave Within, followed by a few new numbers and our next single release, I Said No. We only played six songs as we refuse to do corporate 3 minute specials, and Crasher, our drummer, almost remembered them all!!! All our songs went down a storm, so thank you all, including the Robin, for your support!
Then the main act, although they’re no act, The Sex Pissed Dolls mean business! As usual they took the roof off within 30 seconds of coming on stage! Awesome musicians, their own original music is brilliant and i promise you all, they’re setting themselves up nicely for big things!

With that in mind, we’d like to wish all of The Dolls the best of luck for their journey, was a pleasure to support them again and, hopefully, when they play Wembley, they’ll remember us when they ask for support!!! (Wink wink!!)

We’re back at the Robin in a couple of months, but we’ll announce that in due course!

Keep it purple, Purps!!!

Peace out
