Small COMETS + ELIZA AND THE BEAR
In early February 2017, Tiny Comets will release their fourth album WORHEAD on The Smallest Label, the stick to up to 2015’s Hope Is A State of Mind. WORHEAD is the most brutally sincere Small Comets album to date – acerbic, withering and uncomplimentary about the state of our time however woven with each other with fantastic beauty and care, drenched in good melody and the percussive thrust of an innocent mind.
Tiny Comets are a strident 5 piece from the glorious coast of North East England Robert, Michael and Matt have been creating music with each other considering that 2008 with extra pulsing now added by drummer Nathan and a second Matt – the utiliser. From early releases on bigger labels, the band now favour a model of total self-reliance – illustrated by becoming the only act inside the leading 200 to self-produce, record, release, marketplace, distribute and publish an album: a job which simultaneously illustrates both a tireless operate ethic and love of the craft of song-writing.

Plus support from ELIZA AND THE BEAR
Eliza and the Bear didn’t program to be a band. Not a genuine band, at any price. The Essex quintet had no intention of releasing records, by no means thoughts generating an album. They had no want to play gigs, let alone tour. When they got collectively in the autumn of 2011, all 5 had provided up attempting to make it as musicians, their teenage dreams of pop stardom crushed by also several 5 hour drives to play to ten people. It was time, they decided, to return to actual life.
Hence, the band started as a hobby, a weekly meet-up of mates now in their early 20s who still loved creating music, but only for enjoyable. Which is important to know because it’s essential to understanding their sound. It is why their songs are so joyous and their lyrics life-affirming. It is why their trumpets are triumphant and their strings soar. It’s why their all-inclusive choruses demand to be sung back, why festival audiences adore them and why their singles have been synced everywhere from Sky Movies, a Masterchef final and the BBC’s Olympics coverage to a cider advert and a daytime Tv gardening show they’d rather not talk about. It is why, whether you know it or not, you have heard their music.
