Parkway Drive show Reverence with their new album and tour

Whilst Parkway Drive are on the road in the US, we worked with Epitaph records to spread the word that the Australian metalcore band will soon be heading to the UK and Europe for the next leg of their massive world tour.

With the new album, Reverence, taking #1 in ARIA Australian charts upon it’s release and already making waves in Europe, the tour is set to excite hoards of fans when it arrives this summer. The impressive promotional artwork sports an eye-catching and colourful Renaissance-style image, and looked incredible on both 48 sheet and 4 sheet posters sites across London.

First. Disobey: Then Look At Your Phones

We were excited to work with Polydor Records on a London-wide poster campaign for The 1975’s new album, ‘Music For Cars’. Named after their original EP in 2013, frontman Matt Healy told NME,“We’re using it as the album title now because of how meta and self-referential everything has become in the world of The 1975, and ‘Music For Cars’ was always my favourite title of everything we’d ever done, so it kinda made sense to wrap it up that way.”

The cryptic 4 sheet and 48 sheet posters are proving a real tease for fans. Messages include, ‘If I don’t get to see the beauty of the end of culture: Then at least I’ve seen the culture of the end of beauty’, ‘A Brief Enquiry Into Online Relations’, ‘Modernity Has Failed Us’, and ‘Planned Obsolescence’. But what does it all mean? So far the band have disclosed very little about upcoming tour dates, locations or the new album. Fans will have to hold on a little longer as details are expected to be released in August.

For now, keep your eyes peeled on the streets for posters and clues.

 

Time for Plan B

Plan B is back – and taking his latest album ‘Heaven before all hell breaks loose’ to the streets of his hometown of London ahead of his UK tour. To promote the release, we recently worked with Atlantic Records on a high impact billboard and 4 sheet poster campaign across the city.

The album has taken a rather different turn to the two previous albums – Plan B stated in an interview with GQ that he’s moved away from rapping because, “I feel that I’m not being honest with myself if I’m living the high life and I’m trying to rap about the other side of things”. Elements of the album are based on recent social and political factors, while the overall theme stems from his living in “a perpetual state of heaven on earth”.  However, big fans of his earlier work need not stress – he’s also expressed his intentions of releasing a hiphop album in the coming years.

Fickle Friends bring us tropical vibes

Brighton indie pop band Fickle Friends finally released their debut album earlier this month. The five-piece band have been on the rise since they won a competition to play at The Big Feastival back in 2013. Five years later their first album has been fine-tuned with straight up pop anthems and debuted in the charts at no. 9, bringing them their first top 10 hit.

We worked with Polydor Records on the outdoor campaign for the launch, bringing some tropical vibes to the UK streets in between snow storms with the bright and vibrant artwork.
