Cinematic indie group Long-view are to play Sonic Cathedral’s inaugural Sunday Service club night this weekend.
Sonic Cathedral, the unique shoegaze and drone rock club is for the first time hosting a gig at Manchester’s Night & Day Café, this Sunday (February 11) and local heroes Long-view will headline.
Previously known as Longview (they had to hyphenate because of a US band of the same name), formed at the Night & Day back in 2002, and haven’t played their hometown for 18 months, so this gig is likely to be a bit special.
The band fronted by Rob McVey, are currently recording the follow-up to their 2005 Top 40 album, “Mercury.”
Demos of new material has been posted online on the band’s Myspace page, track titles include: “Elysian Fields,” “Why,” “Signals,” “Drive Faster,” “Run off the Tracks” and “Happiness in Loneliness.”
Ulrich Schnauss from the band will also be on hand to DJ at the club night.
Other bands playing at the SC Sunday Service are newcomer electronic fused popsters, Maps and psychedelicists The Second Floor.
Sonic Cathedral is currently on tour and is also venturing to Nottigham on Monday (February 12).
The Early Years headline, supported by Maps and Model Morning. Longview’s Ulrich Schnauss will also continue his DJ’ing stint.
