Also playing: Palma Violets.

LIVE legends in the making and this week's NME cover stars PALMA VIOLETS are heading for Teesside.

Currently being hyped as the next big thing, the London four-piece are out on the road promoting their debut single.

Up until now Rough Trade Records' Palma Violets have had minimum online presence and no songs recorded.

Instead they have preferred for people to come and experience their raucous live shows at their Lambeth art studio/squat the call Studio 180, and then later on a UK co-headline tour with Savages.

Their story sounds similar to that of The Vaccines who have gone on to make a massive splash on the music scene.

Their Middlesbrough gig is at the Westgarth Social Club next Thursday - the same venue The Vaccines came to in November 2010 before their seminal debut record Whatever Happened To The Vaccines? was released.

Palma Violets, made up of Sam Fryer (vocals/guitar), Chilli Jesson (vocals/bass), Pete Mayhew (keyboard) and Will Doyle (drums), have just released debut single Best Of Friends through iTunes.

The track, which premiered on Radio 1 as Zane Lowe's Next Hype and Hottest Record is sung by the band's bass player Chilli Jesson and is an exhilarating blast of primal rock'n'roll.

It will be released "properly" on CD and limited edition vinyl on October 22, when it will be backed by B-side Last Of The Summer Wine, which is sung by the band's guitarist and co-frontman Sam Fryer and reveals a different, organ-soaked, evocative side to the band.

They are supported at the Westgarth by CHILDHOOD and RANDY & THE HANDSTAND BAND.
