ELECTRONIC PRESS KIT PERFORMANCE
2018 was a great year for DRUM MACHINE
Opening the main stage again, at the award winning Beat Herder Festival, a monumental performance in The Ring, some electrifying stage sets at Audio Farm and Sol Fest and a plethora of street, club and festival performances that had the people bouncing. The fabulous, Hand Made Parade, was spectacular, with the finale housing over 150 players.
2019 shaped up to be all that and more...
The band secured a residency at the exciting Boom Box Circus in Leeds and formed an elegance with the Jorvik Viking Centre in York, for regular annual performances. We played several festivals including Boomtown, Beat Herder, Moovin festival, We Are Festival, Rotherham People's Festival, Keighley Film and Arts Festival, Jorvik’s fringe festival and AutoPot Summer Social.
The band have never been stronger and the grooves more exciting. They will be recording album number two ‘Go Turbo’ set for release in 2020
2020 was destined to be our best year ever
With street gigs, festival gigs and club gigs all lined up, we were all super excited for 2020 and then CV-19 hit and one by one everything was cancelled. Along with musicians and artists the world over, our world was blown apart.
We have kept our socials online over Zoom but with the latency it wasn't possible to practice together.
So we released our first digital album Reverse Technology to spread the love and create some revenue for the band and we have some fantastic new merchandise (T-Shirts, sweatshirts and pendants) and will be crowdfunding to professionally record our our second album 'Go Turbo'. Watch this space!
We have created a socially distanced show with audience participation for when we all get back on track again.
There are some very exciting plans for Drum Machine’s evolution in our new socially distanced normality, as we explore the power of repetition and its effects on the communities we live in.
