New bands accounced for the BRITS

Sun 16 March 08

Kovak, Hey Molly and Bohica have been chosen to perform the Apr├Ęs Sessions which kick off at the end of this month in Laax, Switzerland

After a UK wide search, for three hot new bands to kick off the inaugural, Ride, K2 and Salomon live Après Sessions, votes are in, groupies packed and drum kits disassembled ready for some serious après shenanigans… Oh, and if anybody asks you heard them at the BRITS first……right!

K2 Live Après Session, “Kovak” - Sunday 30th March

Kicking off the week in style and promising that their latest ridiculously catchy single “Death in the Disco” will still be in your head on the plane home will be the Indie/Electro/Pop band Kovak. They kicked off 2008 by supporting Robots in Disguise at Brighton's Concorde 2 club, and successfully put on their very own legendary Indie/Electro/Pop nights. www.myspace.com/kovakuk / www.kovak.co.uk

Salomon Live Après Session, “Hey Molly” - Tuesday 1st April

Hey Molly supported festival headliner Muse at the Eden Projects in Cornwall and have been confirmed to appear at Glastonbury, Aeon and Maker festivals as well as being booked for a tour of Holland and Germany in May, but let’s be honest the Salomon Live Après Session has to be their career highlight! www.myspace.com/heymolly / www.heymolly.co.uk

 

Ride Après Session, “Bohica” - Thursday 3rd April

This Guildford based four-piece outfit is steadily building a reputation as one of Britain's most promising alt-rock / metal bands, with lead single “Seven Second Syndrome” getting regular MTV2 play. Always gigging, always touring, and as keen snowboarders they’ll be coming out to shred the slopes and close down the Brits in true head-banging style playing the final RIDE Live Après Session. www.myspace.com/bohica / www.bohica.co.uk

To ensure you don’t miss out on being part of this legendary event, which is back to celebrate its 18th birthday in style the BRITS are offering amazing packages starting from as little as 442CHF, which includes 7 nights’ accommodation, 6 days lift pass, festival wrist band (which gives you access to event clubs and bars) and event bag.

Snowboard Guide rating 9 out of 10 “Excellent snowsure resort with a good long season. The slopes are great for freestylers and freeriders alike, as well as suiting beginners. The resort can be slack at opening lifts and the off-piste gets tracked out within hours of a dump.”
