Classic mid-western American punk rock bangers from Fort Collins, Colorado on their first UK tour playing their ONLY SCOTTISH SHOW in the confines of Kage. Formerly known as 10-4 Eleanor, Elway encompass everything that we love about modern American punk rock; they are melodic, aggressive, passionate, honest and pack their set full of sing-a-long angst-ridden punk anthems laced with hope and optimism.
On Red Scare Industries, they share a label with some of the finest punk bands on the planet; Nothington/The Holy Mess/The Copyrights; and it is our pleasure to host some of the nicest guys in punk at their very first Scottish show. Tim even played at Sam and Andy Chainsaw's wedding in Gainesville last year, so expect some positivity and love thrown in amongst PBR-soaked Orgcore nostalgia and Elvis Costello-esque poetic lyricism.
Last year's full length was one of the finest melodic punk releases of the year and "Hence My Optimism", their latest 7" on Red Scare, continues to develop their unique brand of drunken yet hopeful melodic punk goodness. These guys will be bringing the good vibes.

LEAGUES APART (ENG)
One of the hardest working punk rock bands in the country, Manchester's Leagues Apart have toured all of the the USA, Europe and the UK, played Fest in Gainesville and toured with likes of Red City Radio, The Flatliners, Broadway Calls, The Menzingers and loads more. This is gruff melodic punk rock at it's finest, with a distinctly British sense of humour. Top quality and top boys too. These guys are tour support for Elway and will be ripping it up every night on the road, more than giving the Americans a run for their money.
Think Dillinger 4/Off With Their Heads/Leatherface/The Flatliners.
Ramshackle doom punk merchants bring their finely honed 30 minutes of misery to Kage to celebrate their (nearly) first birthday of being a band in what is going to be one of only a handful of autumn/winter shows. This year, they've released their first EP, supported Cobra Skulls on their UK tour and had adventures in the American West. Splits with Question The Mark and Colorado's Loaded .45 along with debut full-length coming soon.
Soaring mathy, angular, riff-laden melodic punk/pop from Guildford, Surrey featuring former members of The JB Conspiracy and Overthrow on their first full UK tour. Well received by the likes of Kerrang, Rock Sound and Punktastic, Trails are paying their first visit to Scotland and round out what is a stacked bill. Think dynamic alt-rock along the lines of RX Bandits/Biffy Clyro with a distinct tech-punk influence and huge melodic choruses.
