Austin, TX hyper-kinetic duo Zorch are well known
for playing shows numbering in the double digits every year during SXSW
-- in 2011 they played 19 times, in 2012 they played 20 times during
the event. So, it may be surprising that they've scaled back this year
to a comparatively sane 9 sets during this year's festival.
Zorch will also play direct support to HEALTH in Austin in April. Please see all dates below.

Already making noise in their native Britain after pulverizing debut single "Out of The Black", Royal Blood (23
year-old vocalist/bassist Mike Kerr and 25 year-old drummer Ben
Thatcher) will bring their explosive live show to the U.S. with four
appearances at SXSW, performing at the Secret Sounds showcase, BBC6Music
showcase, Rockfeedback/Visions Day party and the Filter party.
Blood is a mixture of anguished vocals, ferocious drumming and bass
that provides intricate detail as well as a rumble of rhythm. The duo's
sound is a result of a lineage that stretches from present day heroes
Queens of the Stone Age to the influential Led Zeppelin, and all the way
back to early blues pioneers... yet this huge wall of sound emerges
from just two men. In next to no time, the two have earned critical praise following the release of their debut single "Out of the Black"
on the band's own label Black Mammoth Records last year. Now signed to
Warner Bros. Records in the U.S., the label will release Royal Blood's
debut EP on March 18th.
Royal Blood follow their sold out tour and recent nomination for
the BBC Sound of 2014 poll with a slot on the NME Tour with Interpol
& two huge outdoor shows supporting Arctic Monkeys in London's
Finsbury Park on May 23rd and 24th.
"They conjure a sound that strips rock back to its bare essentials to achieve maximum intensity."
"Chief flag bearers for riff-based rock 'n' roll." - Q
"Sounds like The White Stripes ram-raiding Led Zeppelin's back catalogue." - Kerrang!
"Can dredge the rawest primal racket out of just two instruments." - The Guardian

On their latest full-length Lousy with Sylvianbriar,
of Montreal adopted a new songwriting approach (writing retreat in San
Francisco), a different recording method (direct to 24-track tape
machine), and a fresh group of musicians. Inspired by Dylan, the Stones,
Neil Young, and more, Paste
declared the record "[a] stunning re-imagining of Barnes' songwriting
prowess." Today the band is sharing "Jigsaw Puzzle," a track recorded
during the same sessions that produced Lousy with Sylvianbriar. To be released as a limited edition 7" on Record Store Day, "Jigsaw Puzzle" will be backed alternate version of Lousy cut "Triumph of Disintegration."
In addition to the release of the "Jigsaw Puzzle" 7", the band will also be reissuing their record Satanic Panic In the Attic
on Record Store Day. Featuring favorites such as "Disconnect the Dots,"
"Lysergic Bliss," and "Chrissy Kiss the Corpse," of Montreal's
breakthrough album Satanic Panic in the Attic marked a slight departure from the band's previous sound due to influences ranging from 1970's Afro beat to 80's New Wave.
To celebrate this beloved record's 10-year anniversary, Satanic Panic in the Attic
has been re-mastered for vinyl and is being pressed on 180-gram yellow
and light blue vinyl with a second disc, featuring seven additional
tracks recorded during the same era. This deluxe double LP re-issue
comes packaged in a gatefold jacket that restores the interior artwork
to its original full-color design.

With an intriguing online debut last year through a set of clever music videos for singles "Platoon" (starring B-Girl Terra) and "The Heat"
(starring High Rollarz), it was soon reveled that the group's main
figures were a duo of West London artists known as J and T.
Million views later of the "Platoon" music video plus mentions on the
BBC Sound of 2014 Longlist and Spotify's 2014 Spotlight list, the duo,
joined by five close friends, set out to play their first set of live
shows in London.
Hailed by The Fly as "impressively
slick, they pack their skillfully crafted tracks with complex layers of
old-skool hip hop beats, hypnotising grooves, all dressed with rich,
soulful vocals and presented with striking unity," you will not want to
miss Jungle at SXSW 2014.
