Bands to see live this Autumn

Still time to catch some of 2017's best new music

Thursday 12th October 2017

With the summer festival season now over and the evenings growing darker, we take a look at some inspiration for gigs worth seeing this October and November, including some of the artists we've covered this year as well as some others returning to the scene with new material.

High Hazels
Sheffield indie band High Hazels have been on the Subculture radar since 2013, though the band went quiet in terms of new material after their 2014 album.

Oct 18 - Leeds, Lending Room
Oct 21 - London, Sebright Arms
Oct 22 - Brighton, The Joker Brighton
Nov 10 - Sheffield, Yellow Arch
