INCOMING!!

Kick Me Out "No Puppets" EP.
Kick Me Out brings classic (pop)punk vibes and mixes it with influences from thrash metal and
metalcore, giving a new meaning to modern punk. It’s dance-able and sometimes down beat to mosh
on. In any way it will make you sweat.
Resurrected from the ashes of “Deadman’s Switch”. Past members Leander van Bijnen, Fons van
Wegen and Boudewijn Jansen continued playing music together. After some try outs with other
musicians, Nienke Schimmel and Rowan Maris were found and the formation was complete.
Very soon they brought their first single “Falling From The Sky”. Also they played a lot of shows, like
Penguin Radio Showcase at Paradiso, Amsterdam. Soon after their first single “Holding On” came to
the public and a studio video was released too. Kick Me Out’s first EP “No Puppets was released on
24-1-20, featuring their past singles and two new ones. The release was accompanied by a release
party in ACU, Utrecht with friends from Ann My Dice and Switched Off.


 MARSHALL AMPLIFICATION PUT THEIR SUPPORT BEHIND THE MUSIC VENUE TRUST AND #SAVEOURVENUES CAMPAIGN 
  
‘I’VE GOT THE MUSIC IN ME’ T-SHIRT LAUNCHED TO
RAISE FUNDS FOR GRASSROOTS MUSIC VENUES
 
In partnership with the Music Venue Trust, Marshall Amplification have launched a special t-shirt as part of their support of the #saveourvenues campaign. 

All proceeds from the t-shirt will help fund grassroots music venues through the continued economic threats and challenges they face. Taken from UK rockers Bad Touch’s latest single, a rock and roll cover of Kiki Dee’s 1974 hit 'I’ve Got The Music In Me', the t-shirt and Marshall encourage everyone in the music industry and their fans to stand up and support their local venues whilst declaring “I’ve Got The Music In Me”. 

The single is taken from Bad Touch’s new album 'Kiss the Sky' out now. Commenting on the partnership,  Mark Davyd said “Music Venue Trust is delighted that a business so renowned for their connection to live music has stepped forward to help raise money for grassroots music venues. It may still be some time before you can visit a venue but you can help #saveourvenues by buying and wearing Marshall's campaign T-shirt.

Jonathan Ellery, Managing Director of Marshall Amplification said “Everything we do at Marshall Amplification and Marshall Records encompasses live music and we admire what Music Venue Trust are doing with their #saveourvenues campaign. We are excited to be partnering with them to raise funds and help grassroots venues to be able to continue to push the success of live music.

Marshall Amplification, based in Buckinghamshire, have close personal connections not only to their local venues The Craufurd Arms and MK11, but to venues all across the UK that see their amplifiers on stage every week. Marshall was founded with the ethos to help artists make themselves heard on the very stages that are now at threat of closure.

Launched on April 27th, the #saveourvenues campaign has already amassed over £2,000,000 donations with support from likes of Amazon Music, SJM and a number of high-profile artists and music fans throughout the UK. Artists and Venues are being provided with tools and guidance to get involved with #saveourvenues to help raise funds and awareness with the target of helping venues during times like these. Music fans are also encouraged to show their support by engaging with the #saveourvenues shows and donating to their local venue’s crowd funding pages. Fans can also choose to donate directly to the main #saveourvenues fund via the campaign website.
