On Thursday 28th June 2012 at The Intrepid Fox, Soho, SED Records UK will once again be hosting the best free entry hard rock showcase in London for the UK's finest up and coming rock n' roll bands. Three great bands will be taking to the stage to prove why they are the hottest talent on the scene at the moment.

SED Records' signed monster rock n' roll outfit Hornet will be headlining the event so if you like your rock 'old school' (imagine AC/DC meets Black Flag) then you know these guys are gonna kick some serious ass! As usual the support bands come in strong form with Harrow based high-octane rockers, Meansteed and Bournemouth based southern hard rock revivalists, Western Sand all whom have played The Intrepid Fox for SED Records UK before to high acclaim.

Hornet return from their stint in Europe to rock back in London and if you've seen this rock leviathan play live before then you know that you are in for one hell of a time. This is a band that has been going from strength to strength and is gaining a loyal following which grows with each show alongside their larger than life stage presence.

After they tore it up at The Intrepid Fox in April Hard Rock stated: "Hornet's following has been growing and growing since the first time I witnessed them back in November with their original extravagance and passion as strong as ever, it's exactly the kind of blazing show you would expect from a genuine rock and roll band!" and with London's Big In The Game Magazine saying: "In their time The Sex Pistols had revolutionised the music industry in a way never seen before. It is my belief that Hornet will do the same, all that's left is to see their influence spread. Need I say any more?" you know things are going to get really exciting.

Main support on the bill is Meansteed who are a no bull-shit, high octane, uncompromising, raw rock n' roll band hailing from North London. They rocked The Intrepid Fox in April after filling in last minute and grabbed the venues attention with their no-prisoners attitude to their live show, so if you're lucky enough to leave alive you will be deafened, sweaty, suffering from whiplash and hungry for more.

Alternator Gigs said: "Sounding like a cross between Thin Lizzy and AC/DC, Harrow's Meansteed arrive on the scene armed with an entourage of foot-stomping, hand-clapping anthems. Good ol' fashioned hard rock n' roll that Airbourne would be proud of." Be on the look out for Meansteed because when they play, they rock it hard!

Opening the evening for a second time are the talented Western Sand, who are an exciting, balls-out-of-the-bath, four piece hard rock band from Bournemouth, Dorset. With high ambitions the guys from Western Sand intend on putting rock n' roll back on the map and after forming in 2008 Western Sand are becoming Dorset's most sought after rock band, earning a strong reputation after performing countless shows around Bournemouth and Southampton.

Relentless playing has landed the band headline shows at The Joiners as well as supporting Nazareth, Reckless Love, Voodoo Six and Heaven's Basement and after showcasing for SED Records UK back in February Western Sand caused such a storm that they have been invited back to give London another dose of their brand of rock, so make sure you're down early to see what they offer for yourself.

As usual the doors open at 8.00pm and admission is free with DJ's spinning classic rock tunes before the bands start to get the party started... be sure to get to the venue early as it will be another packed out show. Put this date into your diary: Thursday 28th June 2012 at The Intrepid Fox, Soho and see history in the making as the future of rock n' roll is in safe hands!
