Horse Party to release free two-track summer download
Bury St Edmunds alt-rock trio Horse Party are releasing a two-track free download before a packed summer of gigs and festivals.
On Saturday, June 20, the band, made up of singing guitarists Ellie Langley and Seymour Quigley and drummer Shannon Hope, are performing at the last Washing Machine Rock night of the summer at Bury’s Hunter Club alongside Fortunato, How to Swim and Matty and the Bullsharks.
The band are then playing at the Portland Arms in Cambridge on June 25 supporting punk two-piece Slaves as part of Ella Harrison’s Basement People event.
Seymour said it was great to see promoters in the area giving it a go.
He said: “I know being a promoter can be ery challenging - you want people to have a great time but it can be a risk.
“Hats off to anyone who wants to do it. The more doing it the better.”
The band are also playing Beat-Herder Festival with the Levellers and Basement Jaxx on July 17.
On Friday June 26, Horse party are releasing two brand new tracks as a free download to celebrate their busy summer.
Horse Party formed in September 2012 when the trio met at Seymour’s Washing Machine clubnight in Bury St Edmunds.
Inspired by the area’s quietly thriving DIY scene, the band released a string of singles and EPs on their own Pure Deadly imprint.
Their 2014 debut album ‘Cover Your Eyes’ saw critical acclaim and airplay from 6music’s Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq, Shell Zenner at Amazing Radio and XFM’s John Kennedy, and led to an invitation to play Latitude Festival.
