The Northern lights set to shine at King Tut’s
Dirty rock outfit The Northern are thrilled to be topping the bill at the legendary King Tut’s later this month.
A little over a year from their inception the four-piece East Kilbride band – known for their ballsy guitar riffs and solid driving rhythm section – have landed a dream slot at the iconic Glasgow venue. Made up of former members of The Aviators and Kudos and influenced by Biffy Clyro and Foo Fighters, The Northern are making waves on the Glasgow gig scene due to their energetic live performances. Drummer Steven O’Neill told
the band pride themselves on their live shows.
He said: “We all grew up watching bands with a lot of energy and movement on stage so we make sure we bring this to the live stage.
“And the crowd thrive off it, which helps us big style.
“We’re all excited to be headlining such an historic venue. Being the main slot there is an extra level of nervousness so we really need to try and up our game.”
Since forming in early 2015 The Northern have shared the stage with the likes of Patersani, The Lappelles and Bella and the Bear.
They also played to packed audiences in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth and Inverness as part of a miniScottish tour in February.
Steven added: “We have a good following from East Kilbride and the surrounding area – our fanbase is definitely growing with more and more people coming to our gigs.
“We sold out King Tuts when we were on support so they were interested in getting us back in for more performances.
“And we got a great reaction from the crowd during our Scottish tour, especially in Inverness.”
Following a series of successful single releases the band have filmed a video for their latest track Take No More.
The song will be released on iTunes and all other major download sites on April 18.
