WELSH rockers Kids in Glass Houses will headline the second Hatfield Rocks event.
Cardiff’s finest will top the bill at The Forum Hertfordshire, in Hatfield, on Thursday, November 21.
Next month’s gig will be compered by BBC Introducing presenter Gareth Lloyd.
Designed to give local acts exposure and the chance to play with touring artists, the second Hatfield Rocks after last night’s launch party with Sonic Boom Six will feature support from up-and-coming acts Lost Without Cause and Shouting Signals, alongside Buckinghamshire-based indie hopefuls Coastal Cities, a band championed by BBC Introducing on BBC Three Counties Radio.
Having formed in South Wales in the same scene that produced the likes of Bullet For My Valentine and Funeral For A Friend, Kids In Glass Houses rapidly rose to prominence as talented newcomers.
They released new album Peace last month.
Main support comes from Coastal Cities, who will arrive at the College Lane music venue armed with a sound fuelled by jagged post-punk guitars, 80s tinged keyboard riffs and youthful vibes.
Completing the line-up are Lost Without Cause and Shouting Signals.
Hailing from south east England, Lost Without Cause are a three-piece rock band whose video for Trigger has been viewed more than 200,000 times on YouTube.
Formed in 2011, Shouting Signals’ debut EP, Stand Your Ground, shows the young band at their best, with five tracks of finely crafted modern rock songs.
Tickets for the second Hatfield Rocks cost £10. Door to the all ages concert open at 7pm.
