Grand VaultThe Old Courts
We’re excited to welcome REPUBLICA to the Grand Vault in July!
Formed in the early 90’s, Republica have achieved sales of over 3 Million Albums going Top 5 in UK, US and Europe and achieving Platinum Sales Worldwide.
The track ‘Ready To Go’ went to No. 1 in 18 countries and has been featured in Hollywood movies, TV Shows and in international advertising campaigns.‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’ was used as the theme to the Wes Craven Horror Movie ‘Scream’!
Saffron has also continued to work independently, featuring in various side-projects and lending her vocals to tracks including The Cure’s ‘Just Say Yes’ – from their Greatest Hits album/she was also in the video with them, The Prodigy’s ‘Fuel My Fire’ (from The Fat Of The Land) and ‘Beauty Never Fades’ by Junkie XL which reached No. 1 in Poland, amongst others.
After a long hiatus they started touring and releasing again in 2009. Tours with Space (joint 20th anniversary Tour) and the Boomtown Rats (Ratlife Tour) followed with Republica showcasing new material and continuing to bring their high energy electropop-punk vibes to venues around the UK.
Support on the night comes from Def Neon (aka Emily and Mickey) who met at a North Wales studio and connected through a love of anime, horror films and raving. These passions united the pair, leading them to experiment with vintage sequencers, samplers and electric guitars As such, Def Neon’s music is an energetic mix of Rock, Synth Pop and Dance Music; described by the band as Siouxsie Sioux meets Daft Punk, or Peaches meets Van Halen.
What people are saying about Def Neon:
“Can’t stop listening to this…their album is absolutely brilliant” – BBC Introducing
“Their ability to fill every track with stand-alone power yet still be cohesive as a whole is impressive.” Louder Than War
“Instant attraction to this band and not just a one hit band…looking forward to introducing them to my listeners …difficult to choose a fav mix. 10/10” Dave Charles, Harborough FM
