Local Music News – May 2013

Here’s my Local Music News column that appeared in the 3rd May issue of the Hastings Observer.

“Just as last month was all about singer/songwriters & possibly the lighter side of the local musical spectrum, this month it’s all about Rock with a capital ‘R’!

You wait for a much promised album from one of Hastings finest exponents of Rock music & then two come along at once.

Just last week Hornet released their debut album “Skies Are Falling”, but only to a select group of loyal fans. The rest of the world has to wait until June for the full album release.
Why? Well the production of “Skies Are Falling” was funded purely by Hornet’s fans via Pledge Music, one of several new ways for musicians to help further their careers, without the need for a traditional record company.
You can still help the band & get your hands on the album before everyone else by visiting: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/hornetdebutalbum

The month of May see’s the release of the eagerly anticipated new 9 track album by local rockers Arivmia, entitled “Echoes From The Wilderness”.
To celebrate this the band have an official album launch gig at The Carlisle on Saturday 11th May. Entry is free & will include a live set by Arivmia, plus support & even an after show party. You can buy your copy of the album on the night too.
Apparently, this is the only local scheduled gig by Arivmia in 2013, so don’t miss out.
More info can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/Arivmia

Both Hornet & Arivmia are bound to be played during May’s 28 day broadcast of Hastings Rock radio, which starts on Saturday May 4th on 87.7FM. As are Otti Albietz & Harvey Summers, who were featured in last months column.
I shall be presenting a dedicated Local Music Show on Sunday evenings between 8-10pm. I hope you can join me.

Andy Gunton,
Pierless Music & Hastings Rock”
