first opened its doors in November 2019, with 4 successful sold-out Halloween
events, followed by the party to end all parties, as they bought in the new
decade with a dystopian New Years Eve party, and now Rise From The Underground
returns, as the first event in the Spring Series.
Staking its reputation as an essential rock ‘n’ roll date
in the annual calendar, with two now fabled awards nights at the 02 Islington
Academy in 2018 and 2019 which saw a vast array of iconic artists performing
and rubbing shoulders, the 2020 Vive Le Rock Awards is confirmed to take
place this coming April 1st.
This time, however, the event has gone bigger and bolder,
moving to the 2000 capacity 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire for the party of
the year that also celebrates Vive Le Rock’s tenth anniversary in print,
having published its first issue in 2010, it is now the world’s biggest rock ‘n’
roll and punk magazine, independently published by Big Cheese Publishing
Ltd in London.
The two previous years have featured live appearances from
The Damned, The Stranglers, Shakin’ Stevens, Suzi
Quatro, members of AC/DC, Sex Pistols, The Specials, Buzzcocks
and even England football legend Stuart Pearce, and the event this
year continues to grow in stature and size!
This year the 2020 Vive Le Rock Awards takes great
pleasure in honouring Chrissie Hynde, the primary songwriter and
frontwomen for the enormously successful American rock band The Pretenders,
with a much-deserved icon award. Chrissie Hynde has long been the embodiment of
rock’n’roll cool; a woman of principles and a gifted songwriter with a voice that
can melt hearts. Her pivotal role in the early days of punk saw her working in
Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s Sex shop, leading to musical involvement
with the majority of punk’s key players, including even a brief stint in Johnny
Moped’s band, before embarking on a multi-million selling rock career with
smash-hit songs such as ‘Brass In Pocket’ and ‘Talk Of The Town’. She is truly worthy of this special award.
After recently announcing her debut self-titled album, Harkin is sharing new single “Up To Speed” from the record, which is due out April 24th via Hand Mirror. The track was recorded with Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa and Wye Oak & Bon Iver’s Jenn Wasner.
Hot on the heels of their recent support tour with HMLTD and a sold out Manchester headline show, Liverpool art-rock band SPQR are pleased to reveal the official video for their new single ‘Just Sumfin’, which is out now
‘Just Sumfin’ is the second track to be taken from SPQR’s recently-announced forthcoming third EP, No Brain, No Pain, released on 30th April 2020 via all good digital service providers, with the record also available on vinyl via their own label, Nuthin Gud Records.
