Bare Knuckle Parade celebrate the release of new single “Come Alive” in November with a UK tour that brings them through Swindon with a show for us. Conceived out of a drunken conversation around a bar table, the indie folk-rock powerhouse from Bath have quickly gained a reputation for their packed out energetic and compelling live performances around the country; shows which have been described as “Sweat drenched, beer soaked pandemonium”.
Taking place at Level III on Commercial Road in Swindon on Friday November 18th, there are a limited number of earlybird tickets at £5 available online at seetickets. Advance tickets are £6 and available online from seetickets or in person at The Rolleston Arms, Commercial Road, Swindon. Pay on the door will be £8
Support for this show will be from Swindon band Raze*Rebuild, whose rock, punk, folk, indie and country influences are worn on their sleeves. They are band of well-crafted, heartfelt tunes, with big choruses and catchy hooks. Opening the night with their gothic, country tinged sounds and spaghetti-western rockabilly rumble are Swindon & Oxford outfit Monkfish

Bare Knuckle Parade have managed to attract attention from the likes of Dermot O’Leary and Rhod Gilbert on Radio 2, made appearances at Glastonbury Festival, Nass Festival and 2000 Trees Festival and played support slots with the likes of James Bay, The Heavy and Enter Shikari.
Released through Dirty 38 Records new single “Come Alive” embodies the raw, honest and captivating energy that any truly great rock anthem should; the song wears its heart on its sleeve with every belted line and every screech of the guitar. Recorded live and produced by the band in an old theatre, the song is a potent taste of the bands upcoming debut album scheduled to be released in Summer, 2017.
“This song came out of such an organic place, and rings true with all of us – there is an underlying sense of freedom and release in this track that we all felt when we recorded it in the studio… and that same feeling is present every single time we play it live – it’s a no bullshit record!” – Jamie Beale (Bare Knuckle Parade frontman)
“Recording our music live is important to us as our live shows are always chaotic, we wanted to capture that energy on record by just setting up in a room and making some noise without being tied down to a metronome! ” – Tom Cory (Bare Knuckle Parade Guitarist)
