Sheffield’s RedFaces return to Birmingham following the release of lead singles ‘Take It Or Leave It’ and ‘Wise Up’, both being follow ups to their 2016 debut release ‘Kerosene’ which made top 5 on the indie vinyl chart. The band last year played Great Escape Festival in Brighton, as well as Dot to Dot, Community and Truck Festival and many more.
2017 was a jam-packed year for the band, from playing a sold out set at Live at Leeds, to sponsoring the kit for their local football team Ecclesall Rangers, RedFaces are showing no signs of slowing down.
RedFaces are Harry Lyon, Isaac White, Charlie Yapp and Ryan Laycock. Four lads from Sheffield treading what was once a well-worn path, these days the road less travelled. The journey started at 2Fly studios in Sheffield, recording demos with Alan Smyth, the man behind the Arctic Monkey’s first ventures.
Out of these sessions came the band’s first release ‘Katie Come Home’ in early 2015 – championed by BBC Introducing it also attracted the attention of the London A&R fraternity, eventually signing with RCA last year.
Situated in the South Birmingham suburb of Kings Heath, the Hare and Hounds has been around since 1820, but has stood in its present form since 1907. This, along with the beautiful and unique Art Nouveau tiles that line the entry hall and staircase, is a major contributing factor to its current Grade II listed status.
Although playing host to local Birmingham legends UB4O’s first ever gig in 1979 (recently commemorated by a PRS Music Heritage award and plaque), it is only in the past 7 years that it’s really established itself as one of the most important and influential music venues in the country, playing a vital part in nurturing the city’s vibrant music and creative community.
The pub boasts two downstairs bars which host regular food evenings, a pub quiz and weekend DJs whilst the two upstairs venues feature live music & club nights spanning jazz, indie, funk, reggae, hip hop, soul, house, D’n’B & comedy most nights of the week.
Local & National promoters who present shows at the Hare & Hounds include Leftfoot, This Is Tmrw, Birmingham Promoters, Metropolis Music, SJM, AEG, Kililive, Live Nation, Glasswerk, World Unlimited, Cosmic American, Capsule (Supersonic Festival), Moseley Folk Festival, Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival and many more…
