Spring King + guests

Esquires, Bedford, Friday 13th May

We couldn’t be more chuffed than to announce that we are bringing one of the UKs most hyped new bands Spring King to the main stage at Esquires on Friday 13th May!

Spring King is a four-piece post-punk band from Manchester. They are ‘a small-scale, art-pop-punk project.

The band hit the road for a handful of select shows following a year that saw them pick up support from the likes of The Guardian, Stereogum, NME, DIY and The Line of Best Fit, along with becoming the first ever band to be played on Beats 1; being playlisted at both Radio 1 and 6 Music; and touring with Courtney Barnett, Slaves and FIDLAR.

With extensive 6music play, Radio One Maida Male sessions, championed by Zane Lowe, the first band ever played on Apple’s Beats 1 and more, there’s huge excitement in the music scene about this up-and-coming prospect.

New single ‘Who Are You?’ was launched recently and announced as hottest record in the world on Radio 1 by Annie Mac and has just been A listed on 6 Music. Huw Stephens has also just made it his record of the week on Radio.

‘From songwriting experiment to the most hyped uk guitar band of the year.’ NME
‘…one of the most exciting live acts in the UK: raucous but not sloppy, delivering infectious melodies with copious amounts of energy.’ BBC Introducing

‘They’re either going to crash headfirst into the nearest hazard, or they’ll speed by into stardom.’ DIY Mag

‘Like the bottled-up energy of a university house party in full swing.’ The Telegraph

The band visit Bedford Esquires on Friday 13th May. Tickets are on sale now priced £8 advance from Seetickets and all the regular outlets of Esquires Bar, Planet Boutique & Mario’s Hair Design.

This is a 14+ ages show, under 16s to be accompanied by an over 18.
