Tag Archives: Shut Your Eyes And You’ll Burst Into Flames

Yes indeed, it is less than a week until the Leeds and Reading Festivals kick off. The New Sound. will be attending the Leeds Festival and we cannot wait! From Friday to Sunday, hundreds of good bands will be playing the festival, including a handful of really awesome ones like Rage Against The Machine, Bloc Party and Queens of the Stone Age, to name a few.

Of course, for Leeds attendees, the music starts a day early with a handful of bands from the superb Leeds-based record label Dance To The Radio playing, including the brilliant Grammatics. Last year Dance To The Radio brought the likes of now-defunct Shut Your Eyes And You’ll Burst Into Flames, Sky Larkin and Grammatics to support ¡Forward, Russia! and they were all superb (except The Wallbirds who were really boring).

If you’re going to Leeds (or Reading), have a great time! I know we will!


This week, a host of bands announced they had bitten the musical dust. A moment of quiet reflection please for:

The only possible silver lining to this cloud of splitty-up-ness is that the remaining Shut Your Eyes And You’ll Burst Into Flames recordings should be released still, so there’s those to remember them by. 😦
