Formed in 2000, London based ALTSKA band Imperial Leisure have been bracing the festival and gig circuit for over a decade now.  With high intensity performances and alcohol fueled party vibes now what is expected from the band that originally started off as a college band.

It’s just a whisker under 10 years since their first tour supporting hiphop all-stars Ugly Duckling: they rocked it then and they’ve kept on rocking it all the while since, supporting many bigger bands such as Roots Manuva, Less Than Jake and Young Blood Brass Band. With numerous festival appearances under their belt, the band have been wowing crowds all over the UK from the super-sized Glastonbury and Bestival to the more modest scaled affairs such as the family friendly Blissfields and the jewel of alternativeness that is 2000 Trees Festival.

Renowned as champions of the live arena, Imperial Leisure have also paid their dues in the studio too, with two fine self-released albums under their belts. Debut album ‘The Art of Saying Nothing’ smashed on to the scene back in 2008 and was described by Radio 1 as having a sound “of epic proportions”, and although sophomore release Death To The One Trick Pony displayed a darker side the party was still very much in full swing, albeit with the casualties racking up! 

Firekind, Devon UK based modern rock 3 piece, announce their album ‘What I have Found Is Already Lost’ Deluxe Edition in a self-release. Jas Morris (frontman and previous Guitarist Magazine Guitarist of the Year winner) says of lead single and video ‘Adrenalin’, “It’s about not letting any negative aspects, that could easily take over your life, define who you are. You have to take a proverbial shot of adrenalin and get on with things.” The album is available for preorder/save August 7 for October 30 release.

Fusing epic, soaring vocal and guitar melodies with driving, powerful drums and bass the band consists of brothers Jas (vocals, guitar), Dan Morris (bass, keys) and Robin Shute (drums). Original drummer and close friend of the band, Dan Collings played on the album. With hard rock and prog roots spiced with an arena sound blent in, it’s hard to pigeon hole them which bodes to a myriad of rock tastes.

This is a theme throughout, augmented by the acoustic bonus tracks which were recorded and produced by Jas and Dan in their home studio during Covid-19 lock down. Moving with grief in ‘Coming Out Alive’, leaving a relationship behind in the brooding ‘If There’s Any Reason’, the flipside potential of being there for someone as a ‘Cry For Help’ and the uplifting ‘Sound Of Rain’ having battled through tough times all feature with a lingering overarching resonance.

Previous single ‘It’s Not Over’ was deemed “most excellent” by Planet Rock and was also well received by other stations upon their A-List rotations in the UK and further afield.

Produced in West Hollywood, Los Angeles by the highly acclaimed and sought after Alain Johannes (Queens Of The Stone Age, Chris Cornell, PJ Harvey) at his home studio – Jas enthuses “Alain is an amazing man and created such a cool vibe for us the whole time, along with our friends there. We used Dave Grohl’s personal amps, a hybrid of Guns N’ Roses and Jason Bonham’s drum kits! It was so inspiring and pushed us on to give even more than we believed we had already.”

The band have played several successful tours and festivals in the UK, French/Swiss Alps with profile acts including Feeder, Reef, Wishbone Ash, Walter Trout and Ocean Colour Scene. Previously in 2013, they won the Global Battle of The Bands final in Chiang Mai, Thailand having blazed their way through the UK and Europe heats.

Along the way there have been escapades partying with the Foo Fighters in London at the ‘Sound City’ film launch, trading muffins for beer with Tinie Tempah, introducing Sharleen Spiteri (Texas) to tequila & orange and teaching Eliza Doolittle how to “Blue Steel”. Firekind are here for fun, to set alight speakers and torch stages.

The Busketeers are a band like no other, known for their raw energy and diverse shows. Comprised of four talented musicians who are all singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, they captivate audiences with their ability to harmonise and seamlessly swap instruments while delivering a unique sound that blends genres from all over the musical spectrum. Their passion for music is evident in every note they play.

The Busketeers originally formed on the streets of Plymouth, Devon, UK, where they quickly gained a reputation for their diverse performances and impressive musical skills. The band consists of Kendall Williams, Luke Engel (part of the band Wild Fenn), Matthew Gordon Price, and Olly Parker. Each member brings their own unique style and influences to the group, resulting in a sound that is both eclectic and cohesive.

Despite their success as a street band, The Busketeers quickly gained a following and began playing at local venues, eventually building a fan base that extended beyond their hometown. Their reputation as a must-see live act grew, and they were soon playing at festivals and venues across the country.

The Busketeers released their debut album, "The Busketeers," in September 2023. The album showcases the band's impressive range of musical styles and their ability to seamlessly blend them together. From folk to rock to pop, "The Busketeers" is a testament to the bands musical prowess and dedication to their craft.

Since then, The Busketeers have continued to tour and release new music, building a loyal fan base along the way. They have performed at some of the UK's biggest music festivals and stages, including: BoardmastersPlymouth PavilionsTunes In The DunesLeopalloozaRock OysterTunes In The Park as well as supporting the likes of The Wailers (at Tunes On The Sands 2022); The Wurzels (Rattler Fest). Please head to the bottom of this page for a full list of previous festivals.

Recently the band recorded live sessions at Sawmill Studios, Fowey with Sound Factory SW and legendary producer John Cornfield who has recorded with Muse, Oasis, Robert Plant and many more chart toppers.


“It’s been an unreal experience to perform and record at such a prestigious studio, especially with John who honestly was such a chill and efficient person to work with, you can see why  some of the greats have come here to work. We won’t forget this...”

As The Busketeers continue to evolve and grow as musicians, one thing remains constant: their commitment to providing audiences with an unforgettable live experience.
