TUNE Cavalcade - Blueness Is A Heavy Stone
“Proving that the spirit of The Buzzcocks is still going strong” – John Kennedy (Radio X)
“Perhaps it’s their jaw dropping riffs that give them the edge, or it may be the energy and vigorous no-shit attitude they have on stage. Either way, this band are fast becoming one of the most interesting and fun live bands emerging onto the scene” – Indie Underground
“Cavalcade are creating waves with their anthemic, urgent straight up rock n roll” – GigSlutz
CAVALCADE are an East London four-piece currently creating waves with their version of blistering Indie Rock and Roll. Newly signed to indie label These Bloody Thieves Records and already packing venues inside the capital with their electric live shows, they have proved that the Cavalcade journey is one to watch. With their debut single ‘Alkaline’ being John Kennedy’s ‘X-Posure Hot One’ on Radio X as well as reaching 3,000 streams in it’s first week on Spotify alone – New single ‘Blueness Is A Heavy Stone’ is just waiting to impress the masses.
Written directly to stress the importance of mental health, the single aims to provide the listener with the message that it’s ok not to be ok. Everyone experiences days shrouded in blueness; but sometimes that load isn’t always as difficult to carry. Lead vocalist and song-writer Connor Duggan has said that the latest single “discusses a topic that is quite rightly at the foreground of a lot of people’s thoughts today. As a group of young men, we felt as though it’s just as important to talk about our experiences while also giving this sense of optimism through both the lyrics and the musicality of the song.”
With a headline show at The Water Rats to follow its release on the 4th October, the single is timed perfectly for the beginning of Mental Illness Awareness Week 2019.
CAVALCADE are Connor Duggan (vocals/rhythm), Jack Campbell (lead guitar), Tom Nunn (bass) and Steve Norris (drums)
