The emo resurgence is in full swing. My Chemical Romance are back, Y2K fashion has its own sections in stores, and the price of Doc Martens is going up and up. Although, that may actually just be the natural inflation of everything at the moment.

Luckily, gig prices have somewhat escaped this, and Scotland’s Dude Trips will be playing Independent in Sunderland on Friday 29th July for only £5, along with three more of the UK’s rising emo bands.

Dude Trips released their debut album in 2019, and it features the likes of the upbeat and melancholic Documentaries, and the very guitar heavy ballad Blank Canvas. It’s an album which perfectly encapsulates why emo rock took the Western world by storm, feeling like it was plucked straight from 2007. 

Joining them on the night are hardcore band Lull, known for their powerful single I Want To Give Your More; Herefordshire’s Lapyear who blend shoegaze and alt. emo sounds to create a chill rock sonic environment, with such songs as the distorted Hang; and lastly there are local lads Ninebanks, known for their old school pop-punk – their newest track Little Silver is heavily noughties in its sound.

Dude Trips, Lull, Lapyear and Ninebanks play Independent, Sunderland on Friday 29th July.
