Mallory Knox at The Pyramids Centre
On Sunday 2nd April, alternative rock band Mallory Knox are coming to Portsmouth’s Pyramids Centre in celebration of the release of their third album.
Supporting the band will be Lonely the Brave, an English rock band formed in 2008, and Fatherson, a three-piece Scottish band based in Glasgow.
Mallory Knox’s lead single Giving It Up, which was premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1, is available now, taken from their latest album Wired.
Defined by psychological conflict, Wired documents a journey of self-discovery for Mallory Knox. Lead single and album opener Giving It Up immediately establishes a more refined sound for the band, demanding the listener’s attention with a stadium-sized chorus. Speaking about the track, bassist and songwriter Sam Douglas says, “Giving It Up is about the frustration of giving everything to something you’re passionate about and truly believe in, only to have other people step in who don’t share the same passion as you and hinder your progress. The song illustrates that when you keep all the frustrations and anger inside, it leads you to a breaking point of desperation where you feel like you might as well just ‘give it up’”.
In just five years, Mallory Knox have firmly established themselves as pillars of the British rock movement. The Cambridge five-piece released four BBC Radio 1 A-Listed singles on last album Asymmetry, sold out London’s 3,700-capacity Roundhouse, played to huge crowds on the Reading & Leeds and Download main stages and reached #16 on the official UK album chart.
Breaking free of the restraints that bound them over the first two albums – inexperience, self-doubt, a restricting reverence to their heroes and a reputation as rock’s latest nice guys – Mallory Knox are back – and they’re laying bare their souls, kicking at their boundaries, savaging their sound and expanding their worldview. In the process, they are becoming the vital voice of the modern rock generation; damaged, informed, driven, torn between happiness and hedonism and utterly, utterly wired.
Join The Pyramids Centre on Sunday 2nd April at 7:00pm and see Mallory Knox. Tickets are £17.50.
