SOCIETY are returning to Glasgow for the second time, but this time, they’re headlining.

Last October, Society were supporting the Deadstring Brothers at Mono.

But now a headline act at King Tuts affirms to guitarist Matt Wise that his band have really made it.

He told Live: “We had a great time and made a few friends so we’re definitely looking forward to coming back and headlining.

“Glasgow is always a great night out on the tiles.

“People should expect memorable, classic sounding songs with close knit, three-part harmonies, not something you hear much of or done so well these days.

“We make a pretty full sound for just three people”.

Joining Wise in the trio are bassist Ben Lancaster and drummer F. Scott Kenny.

The country rock band from West Sussex have received a great deal of praise for their new release A Crooked mile which echoes the sound of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

The majority of the tracks are composed by Wise, whose song writing has matured since the bands 2004 debut.

They are just back from a tour of Canada and USA, which gained the band a whole new legion of fans.

Their songs echo their love and passion for all things West Coast USA, Laurel Canyon and the great country rock music produced in the late 1960s/early 70s, yet their sound is brought into the 21st century with a distinctly indie feel.

Society play King Tuts Wah Wah Hut on St Vincent Street on Thursday (September 22) from 8.30pm. Tickets £6 from 221 5279 or www.gigsinscotland.com.
