TOREADOR Release ‘Get A Grip’ Live Video

27th June 2019

Currently out on the road supporting Glasgow alt-rock band Take Today, Southampton three-piece TOREADOR are pleased to reveal a storming live video for their single ‘Get A Grip’.

Following on from the viral success of their debut single ‘Ashes’ (racking up 10,000 views on their first ever video), the video was shot at The Ranch Production House, Southampton, where the trio’s debut EP Hot Glue—which is out now—was recorded by Neil Kennedy (Creeper, Milk Teeth, Boston Manor)

“Get A Grip was the first song written for our forthcoming EP,” say the band on the track. “It’s got an explosive, stomping rhythm with snaking riffs, and lyrics that deal with themes of sacrifice, redemption and making peace with your past. Always a favourite to play live.”

Hot Glue sees Toreador bring together a signature blend of fuzz-soaked guitars and swooping harmonies that have evoked early comparisons from music press to Queens of the Stone Age, The Raconteurs, Rage Against The Machine and Led Zeppelin. The record picked up a swathe of support from Louder Than WarAlready HeardPunktasticListen With MongerYack! MagazineGigRadarand more, alongside early radio success at BBC IntroducingAmazing Radio,Total Rockidobi Anthm, and Primordial Radio.

Appearing on stage over the past year with the likes of Demob HappyTigercub,The Amazons and Yonaka, the trio have created a cult following in their hometown of Southampton that has allowed them grow comfortably into their now thundering live show.

Hot Glue is out now.
