Eades really deserve the hype surrounding them right now. With the release of their debut record Delusion Spree in the not too distant past, the post-punk five-piece are ready to get on the road in celebration to perform for their ever-growing fanbase, and bring their riotous live show to Newcastle’s Bobik’s on Friday 15th April.

Eades have been hands-on throughout their thus far short lifespan, self-producing their new album in a kitted-out barn in North Yorkshire. Recording as live might simplify some of the production process, but it also means every member of the band has to be at the top of their game to capture their sound at their best. It’s a risky move, but it’s paid off: Eades’ first full-length effort is charmingly crafted; the lazy drawl of recent single Backstreet Politic adds a bit of edge to a classic Britpop sound, while eponymous track Delusion Spree explores modern medicine’s progress in methods of self-medication. It’s not subtle, proclaiming “like CBD was made for me”, but the honest monologue surrounding mental health management is on brand for this frank-talking outfit. Bonus points for the dreamlike Scarborough-based MV, too, because holiday trips there always feel a little liminal. Chilled out but deeper than it sounds, Eades are sure to pass the vibe check. 

Support on the night comes from ‘kamikaze’ rock and rollers, Jango Flash.

Eades and Jango Flash play Bobik’s, Newcastle on Friday 15th April.
