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 is shaping up to be all that and more...
The band have secured a residency, at the exciting Boom Box Circus in Leeds. and have formed an elegance, with the Jorvik Viking Centre in York, for regular annual performances. Already booked in for several festivals including Beat Herder, Movin festival, Jorvik’s fringe festival and the AutoPot Summer Social.
The band have never been stronger and the grooves more exciting. They have finished recording album number two, ‘Straight out of Hebden’ set for release later this year.
There are some very exciting plans for Drum Machine’s evolution in the new year, as we explore the power of repetition and its effects on the communities we live in.
"A live 30 piece turbo powered bateria, breaking new ground, bringing live dance music to the people and ripping up dance floors.
Drum Machine bash out pumping dance grooves with northern industrial intensity, blasting big beats into the heart."
