Newcastle-based promoters Neversleep are delighted to bring alt. rock duo ARXX back to Newcastle as part of their upcoming UK tour. The band last played the region in support of Ladybird at The Cluny in 2019 but this time they are back as headliners of their own at Toon favourite Little Buildings on Monday 13th September.

The genderqueer Brighton gal pals have been making moves all over the UK and Europe since forming in 2018 and have already received acclaim from the likes of Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq and John Kennedy. ARXX have crafted a sound that is part punk and part rock but all no-nonsense – recent singles, Deep and Call Me Crazy, showed their versatility around the studio after the all-out garage rock of earlier releases.

Support on the night will come from Newcastle’s Abnorm, who have quietly been building a name for themselves over the past year with their Everything Temporary and Citrus single releases showcasing singer Abbie’s rich, emotive rock credentials. And as if that wasn’t enough, opening proceedings will be The Samphires who bring their alternative indie vibes – the all-girl three-piece studied music at college together and the result is heart-on-the-sleeve pop built on teenage insecurities and post-punk hooks.
