Honiton-based band Sweet Black Angels are looking forward to the festive season and the new year ahead after a successful gig in London.

Sweet Black Angels recently performed at the Brixton Jamm and were the main support act to Mark Morriss of the Bluetones.

“The whole day was brilliant,” says lead singer Scott Phillips. “It was one of the best sets we have performed and went down really well with the crowd and we were really pleased to be the main support to Mark Morriss from The Bluetones on the night. It was great to be back at the Brixton Jamm, one of our favourite venues.”

The band, together with their fans, travelled in style to the London venue in a luxury lounge liner – the tour bus was previously used by Ocean Colour Scene.

Sweet Black Angels will be performing an acoustic show at The Barnfield Theatre in Exeter on Thursday, December 12. Tickets are available online at www.barnfieldtheatre.org.uk

Next year the band will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of its first album Beneath Shadows.

Scott added: “Next year we will be back with a few gigs locally to celebrate 10 years since the release of our first album ‘Beneath Shadows’. We’ve also got a short documentary about the band coming out next year as well.

“ I’m currently just finishing off a solo album and the third Sweet Black Angels album is also being worked on as we speak.”
