VALES ANNOUNCED FOR HRX: Holy Roars' 10th Birthday Party, playing 'Clarity' in full for the final time. 21 April 2016
Exploding out of almost nowhere with debut record ‘Clarity’ on Tangled Talk Records, Vales quickly gained a rabid following amongst the short-lived UKSwell and wider post-hardcore scenes - resulting in them scoring an album deal with 6131 Records in the USA as well as touring America, doing SXSW, playing Reading and Leeds Festival and supporting Unbroken(!) in Germany amongst many other things. It was a crazily intense couple of years for a young band. This level of pressure somewhat inevitably led to a couple of line-up changes in tandem with real-life and jobs getting in the way. There are also now whispers and hints of a new musical direction forthcoming from Vales. Here and now however, HRX sees the band come out of quasi-hibernation to play their seminal debut ‘Clarity’, in full, one last time at HRX, Saturday 21st May @ The Dome, Tufnell Park…..
