After having their last performance of 2021 cancelled, Hartlepool riff-masters Leopard Rays will be making up for it by pouncing straight into 2022 with a brand new single and a February tour.

The alt. rockers’ newest track, Something Like Hell, follows the foundations built by the band’s previous singles, Curtain Call and Carried Away, and demonstrates the band’s bombastic and explosive sound, replete with string section and euphoric melodies. It’s a track that must be witnessed live, and lucky for you Leopard Rays will be stalking venues in Newcastle and Middlesbrough as their hunting ground.

First up is a show on Friday 11th February at Newcastle’s newest venue The Shooting Gallery (Zerox), and two weeks later they’ll be marking Middlesbrough’s Play Brew Co as their territory on Friday 25th February.

Support for Newcastle is yet to be confirmed, but SWEARS will be joining them at the Middlesbrough show, bringing their rowdy atmospheric songs and smashing out bangers such as the heart pumping Say Nothing and the hair-raising guitar-led Lame Wizard.

Leopard Rays release Something Like Hell on 28th January. They play The Shooting Gallery, Newcastle on Friday 11th and Play Brew Co, Middlesbrough on Friday 28th February.
