Born and bred in Glasgow, but with more in common with the swampy blues of Louisiana, Tijuana Bibles are a mix of grungy sludge-based riffs and groove-laden rhythms. 2014 has already seen Tijuana Bibles wow T in The Park, Wickerman Festival and Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.
The band sold out King Tut's legendary New Year's bash "New Year's Revolution", supported Deap Valley and won a nomination for ‘Best New Act’ at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards. Already a great breakthrough year Tijuana Bibles are set end with Supports to Alabama 3, Cast and The View in a special hometown show in Dundee.
Tijuana Bibles released new single ‘Crucifixion’ off the back of their recent free download 'Toledo', which saw them win support from the likes of NME and Q Magazine.
Support: Forest Fires
Forest Fires are a four piece alternative rock band from Aberdeen, Scotland. In 2014, they were the winners of "Best Rock Alternative" at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards. They have also featured on BBC Introducing with a live lounge session broadcast nationally and were named as one of Vic Galloways 'bands to watch in 2013'.
With their haunting, often socially subversive vocals, intense guitar riffs and rich variety of experimental layering, their sound is that of restless energy as well as every developing musical exploration.
