Inheaven are a South London four-piece who’re being tipped as ones to watch for 2017 following an excellent 2016. Fusing elements of 90’s US indie to an innate British sensibility has seen them build a rapidly growing fan base. Coming to the Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton on the 9th February, we got the chance to have a quick chat with the band:
Hi. After a very busy 2016, what were the highlights of your year?
– Probably playing Reading festival, and recording our debut album
How’re you looking forward to your upcoming headline tour?
– Absolutely! We love doing our own tours more than anything. It’s the best feeling in the world.
Are there any cities you’re particularly looking forward to visiting?
– Most of this tour is places we’ve never visited before so looking forward to all it! I think it’s important to not just play the big cities – I grew up in a small town and when we had a gig everyone I knew would go. I love that small town sense of community and scene that you don’t always get in the major cities.
What can you tell us about the support acts for this tour?
– We are bringing Freak along with us, he’s a great new artist that will bring the party! Just watch his new video for Cake and you’ll see what I mean.
What can fans expect from your upcoming debut album and how was the recording process?
– We recorded it in Wales, and it came together very quickly. We just want people to hear it now.
What are your plans for the rest of 2017?
– Lots of our own shows, festivals, and our album being released
If you were called into the Radio One Live Lounge tomorrow and had to perform a Top 40 track, which would you choose and why?
– That’s tough! Probably a really heavy version of Touch by Little Mix
If you could choose a band to cover one of your songs, which song and which band would you choose and why?
– Arcade Fire to do a epic cover of Regeneration. That would be pretty cool.
Which bands would you recommend that people check out?
– We are big fans of Black Honey who are about to become massive. Check them out if you haven’t heard them.
Why should people come along to your date at the Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton on 9th February?
– Because it’s going to be loud and lots of fun.
