Calling all trumpeters!

7 Nov

Can you play The Trumpet and help my lovely & rather gorgeous friends out?

Calling all trumpeters! Hyde & Beast need you! The Sunderland duo of The Futureheads’ Dave Hyde and ex-Golden Virgins drummer Neil Bassett are getting ready to hit the road on their first ever UK headline tour and are looking for talented trumpet players from around the country to join them onstage. The selected musicians will accompany them during the performances of their recent single, ‘Never Come Back’.

Neil ‘Beast’ Bassett explained,”If you or someone you know can blow a mean horn then get in touch. We will get you and a mate into the show for free; we can have a little practice in soundcheck and then play the show. Should be a blast!”

To apply, simply send your name, contact details and the date you would like to play to along with a confirmation that you have a trumpet you’re able to use. The band will get back to those selected to play with more information.

Hyde & Beast are also set to release their brand new single ‘You Will Be Lonely’ on November 14th through their very own label, Tail Feather Records.

You can see the brand new video for ‘You Will Be Lonely’, directed by Ian West here.

Hyde & Beast will be playing the following shows, and need a different trumpeter for each date except Manchester – I can vouch that they are AMAZING live!
