This Saturday 21st November you can catch rock band Eva Plays Dead for £5 on the Lincoln Imp stage. Their newest video release has just featured on http://www.kerrang.com.
No-nonsense hard hitters Eva Plays Dead are a British rock band from Nottingham/Derby, UK. Fronted by boss-lady Tiggy Dockerty and her punk tinged vocals. ‘Eva Plays Dead’ blend big riffs, infectious melodies and raucous energy. They have been referred to as the Midland’s Joan Jett and The Black Hearts but EPD take influence from a vast range including Halestorm, Marmozets, Black Flag, Aerosmith, Queens of the Stoneage, LostAlone and Heaven’s Basement to name a few.
KERRANG! – “Monster riffs & powerful vocals.”
ROCKSOUND – “A hard edged rock ‘n’ roll effort. Returning with a greater focus on whopping riffs and melodies.”
METAL HAMMER: “Putting the backbone in blues, this feisty slab of rock’n’roll does a good Halestorm impression while ramping up the tempo with Tiggy Dee’s smash ‘n’ grab act.”
POWERPLAY MAGAZINE: “There are some ferocious riffs to be had here, served up with a hefty dose of snarling attitude from take no prisoners front woman Tiggy Dee. A punchy and gritty slice of modern rock and roll that’s well worth the time of any discerning lover of rock music.”
PUNKTASTIC: “Huge and packed with dark and venomous riffs. Frontwoman Tiggy Dockerty displays her swaggering vocals, laced with plenty of confidence and gusto.”
PLANETMOSH – “4/5. One of the hottest, hard biting rock quartets.”
THE MUSICAL OUTCAST: – “Blasted out at breakneck speed from start to finish this is another slab of hard rock which is impossible to ignore.”
