THE Rebel Dead! will play their maiden gig in their home town on Saturday June 18 at Rugby’s Vault rock club.

The evening will be for music fans aged 14 and upwards, and a bar will be available for those with suitable ID and who are old enough to drink alcohol. The headline act will be supported by Milton Keynes rock and roll band Lionsex and Rugby four piece alternative rock band Logic and Faith.

The Rebel Dead!, influenced by the likes of The Wildhearts, Guns n’ Roses, Backyard Babies and Motorhead, have themselves down as a good old fashioned rock and roll band to be enjoyed by the masses.

Their website states, “The Rebel Dead! play rock n’ roll, simple.

“Forget all the rock posers who have nothing to say. This music is for all you rockers, outcasts and outsiders.”

The band have already blown the roof off Northampton’s King Billy venue and are now confident of generating a grass roots following in their home town.

Kicking off the evening will be Milton Keynes band Lionsex. The four- piece are influenced by the likes of Guns n’ Roses, Motley Crue, Aerosmith and the Sex Pistols. The band blend the sound and attitude of classic rock from across the decades with a vibrant modern edge. Lionsex may well have a generous helping of all you could ever want in your next favourite band.

Rugby’s own Faith and Logic are up next, fronted with confident vocals and backed up with ambient and dramatic synths, searing blues guitar lines, throbbing bass and powerful drums. Influences include Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Muse and Biffy Clyro.

The venue, Vault night club in Church Street, has recently become the area’s only dedicated rock bar and is now hosting regular live music events.

For Saturday night’s gig the club will open its doors for the evening at 7.30pm. Entry costs £3.
