The Cribs
The Cribs and High Road Touring are happy to announce that the cult UK band will be touring throughout the USA and Canada this fall, including an appearance at Chicago's Riot Fest. Known for their fiercely DIY approach to recording and touring at a time when indie music in the UK was going through a huge commercial boom, The Cribs always stood out from their contemporaries as an altogether more uncompromising prospect. Releasing their first two LP's 'The Cribs' (2004), and 'The New Fellas' (2005) on UK independent label Wichita Recordings, the band quickly built a loyal and devoted fan-base which lead to Q Magazine describing them as "The biggest cult band in the UK". After the breakthrough success of their third LP "Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever" (Warner Bros., 2007), The Cribs were joined by legendary Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr as a full-time member of the group for their fourth full-length "Ignore The Ignorant" (Warner Bros, 2009). Following Marr's departure in 2011, The Cribs returned with their critical high-point "In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull" in 2012, and then their latest album "For All My Sisters", produced by Ric Ocasek (Weezer, Bad Brains)
which was released in 2015. All 3 albums charted in the UK Top 10. Fast-forward to May of this year, when rumours began to swirl that there would be new Cribs music on the way after a series of cryptic messages released through the bands social media - leading to an easter-egg hunt of independent record stores both in the UK and the USA to find the limited-edition, white-label only 7" release "Year of Hate". Following quickly up on that, The Cribs surprise-released their first official new single "In Your Palace", again through their social media channels, on June 1st. Recorded by legendary Nirvana producer Steve Albini, the track finds the band returning to their punk roots, with Albini taking them "closer to capturing the magic of their rough 'n raw live show than ever" (DIY Magazine) resulting in "A feral return, laced with barely constrained energy" (Clash Magazine). Nominated for numerous "Best Live Band" awards from the likes of the NME, Q, and Mojo Magazine, The Cribs have always made touring their number 1 priority, and in their home country have become main stage perennials at festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds, T in the Park, and many more. Stateside, they have played both the Coachella and Lollapalooza festivals twice, amongst others. The band will be appearing at this years Riot Fest in Chicago, before undertaking a coast-to-coast tour of the USA throughout September and October
PAWS
PAWS are Phillip, Josh and Ryan.
The band formed in the ashes of a briefly (but passionately) lived “Violent Femme-esque”, Glasgow based band called “A Copenhagen Hope”. After the departure of one of it’s founding members (Nick Anderson) the remaining three friends (Phillip Taylor, Josh Swinney and Matthew Scott) formed PAWS.

After their first show in 2010 opening for Dum Dum Girls in Glasgow on a sold out bill, the band began to establish a strong presence in Glasgow and the surrounding areas by playing almost weekly at times. The trio self recorded and released the majority of their early writings on a small bedroom run cassette tape label that Phillip had started called Cath Records. As well as those releases, the band released their debut 7” vinyl in 2011 on Edinburgh Based indie label Gerry Loves Records. In the beggining of 2012 PAWS signed with Brighton/Brooklyn based FatCat Records. Their first release for the label was their “Misled Youth EP” in May of that year. In October their debut full length album “Cokefloat!” was released. The LP was recorded by ex Test Icicle, Rory Attwell on the boat/studio “Lightship95” docked in London’s Trinity Buoy Wharf.

A relentless touring schedule throughout their first three years has seen PAWS tour the UK, Europe, USA and gather a strong and loyal fan base wherever they go. The band have toured with Japandroids, Bleached, We Are Scientists, The Cribs and have also previously been invited to open shows for The Breeders, Fucked Up, Mates Of State, No Age, Wavves, Ty Segall and many others. Spin Magazine placed the band in at number four on their “Top 50 Best Acts at SXSW Festival 2013”

In spring 2013 Matthew departed from the band to pursue other interests and Ryan Drever (No Island/Garden Of Elks) was added to complete the PAWS puzzle.

2014 will see the release of their sophomore album for FatCat Records which will be recorded in New York.
