San­son band re­leases sin­gle

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - WHAT'S ON - SAM KILMIS­TER

Manawatu¯ band Mid­night Switch will crank up the vol­ume as it cel­e­brates the re­lease of its new sin­gle.

The band will bring its high en­ergy, orig­i­nal rock show, fea­tur­ing In My Blood, back to the San­son Club on Fe­bru­ary 17.

Gui­tarist Ja­son Devlin said the sin­gle had played on sev­eral ra­dio shows, in­clud­ing Axe At­tack on i Heart Ra­dio, AMR in Aus­tralia, Ra­dio Con­trol, KAOS in Blen­heim and The Molten Metal Show in Christchurch.

A mu­sic video has been up­loaded to YouTube.

It was filmed at the San­son Club, Devlin said, so would give pun­ters a good idea what the show on Satur­day would be like.

The video was funded by the Palmer­ston North City Coun­cil and the Cre­ative Com­mu­ni­ties Scheme.

Manawatu¯ teenager Brit­tany Hazel­grove was a guest mu­si­cian on the record­ing, but she has since moved to Auck­land for univer­sity so won’t be per­form­ing with the band this time. She joined the band for sev­eral gigs, belt­ing out the groove on the sax­o­phone.

‘‘Sax is not of­ten heard in hard rock mu­sic, but when it is, such as the mu­sic of Ge­orge Thoro­good, it sounds so fat and pow­er­ful. It’s just magic’’.

Devlin said more sin­gles were on the way and even hinted at re­unit­ing with Hazel­grove for a po­ten­tial gig in Auck­land.

Spe­cial guests, the Trav­el­ling Lounge Room, will also per­form as spe­cial guests.

Devlin said the band’s catchy, up­beat and orig­i­nal sound al­ways put smiles on au­di­ence faces.

Mid­night Switches shows in San­son last year ended with a packed house chant­ing for more and Devlin said there were prom­ises of a big­ger and bet­ter show this time around.
