DUSTY POP ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS ** Air Drawn Dagger ** + Alexis Kings Penelope Tree ____________________________ Air Drawn Dagger Air Drawn Dagger are a female fronted Alternative Rock band from Sheffield with an eclectic mix of Electronic, Grunge, Punky - Angst- Pop sounds. The name Air Drawn Dagger comes from Macbeth as it is a “characterisation of an emotional outburst". Guitarist Lewis met Singer Maisie in 2014 and began writing songs in her Cake Shop after hours. Early gigs as an acoustic duo in front of old punks at Hardcore shows as well as Tapas restaurants got them playing all over Yorkshire. Twice. In 2015 Drum Assassin Ross Dore joined the band and their debut release received heavy support from BBC Introducing and the band began building up a cult fan base by constantly gigging across the UK. 2016 saw the band sign a publishing deal and released an EP to a sold out 150 capacity hometown show at Sheffield’s Corporation. This release received overwhelming praise from the underground press such as Hit The Floor, Mosh & Punktastic as well as further support from BBC Introducing Sheffield as singles “…Theirs for the Breaking” & “The Banshee” received frequent airplay. 2017 saw the band sign their second publishing deal, embark on extensive touring across the UK and support a plethora of artists from multiple genres such as Alt Rock, Metal, Pop Punk and more... (Junior, Kobra & The Lotus, Coast to Coast to name a few.) The future holds the release of a string of singles on Alya Records, non-stop touring and more adventures in sound. ____________________________ Alexis Kings Alexis Kings are a British rock band from St Albans in the UK formed in 2015 with influences ranging from The Rolling Stones and Oasis to the greats of Hip Hop,resulting in a classic dark rock and roll with an R&B undertone.

The two singles ‘Squire’ and ‘Strawberry Blonde’ have attained national coverage through the likes of Huw Stephens on Radio 1 referring to the band as ‘that band we are really excited about,’ as well as plays from John Kennedy on Radio X. However, the lead single Squire continues to receive attention globally through plays on Triple J Radio in Australia to KCRW in LA.

Hailing from Buckinghamshire, the quartet formed in the latter stages of 2015, and since then have worked tirelessly to create songs that en-capture what it really means to be young but getting older. ____________________________ DOORS 7PM | £6ADV | DUSTYPOP.COM
