October will see the launch of
the very first DIY presents the Neu Tour. Three of the UK’s most exciting new bands will take to the
stage and will perform eleven very special dates across some of the UK’s major
cities. We caught up with one of the headline bands INHEAVEN to find out more.
Firstly what’s the story behind the band, how did you all
We formed about a year ago, it was a natural
progression from writing songs in a bedroom to meeting other likeminded people
who could bring those ideas into reality.
Are you excited about being part of the DIY Presents the Neu
Very excited. We want to tour as much as humanly
possible, so going away with 2 such great bands is a great start for us.
You guys will be playing 11 dates across the UK alongside
VANT and The Big Moon. Is there a particular city that you’re looking forward
to performing at?
We are looking forward to going back to Leeds. We
played at The Brudenell back in May and it was one of our favourite live shows
ever, so can’t wait to do that all over again. However all the venues and
cities are great, and we are excited to play in places we’ve not yet had the
Describe INHEAVEN in 3 words?
Everything is fine.
Tell us about your new track ‘Regeneration’?
It was the first track that was written and it
happened very quickly. It made sense for it to be the first song we put out. It
kind of depicts how we were feeling at the time.
What can we expect from an INHEAVEN show?
Hopefully something loud and aggressive, but with
moments of clarity and emotion….
You’ve received great support so far from the likes of XFM,
Radio 1, Clash and Noisey. Is it mad hearing your songs on the radio?
Yes I don’t think that will ever get old. The
support has been overwhelming and we want to show all those people that they
were right to back us so early on. We have a lot to prove now.
What has been the best bit of advice that you have received
I think just to keep focused on what your priorities
are. All we’ve ever wanted is to make thought provoking music and being the
best live band we can possibly be. There can be a lot of distractions and it’s
easy to let those creep into your daily routine, however we try our best to
stick to what we know, writing and recording. Basically just be a recluse.
What’s the most exciting thing you are looking forward to
Recording the album and playing as many shows as
humanly possible. What tracks will you be listening to on tour? Find them below in a playlist the band made for us or click HERE for our playlist.
