“They have honed a raucously engaging sound that puts them right up there with the most exciting new bands” - Gig Radar

The Hideaways' sound is a combination of raging guitars and driving rhythms alongside dark electronic and subtle trip-hop influences.


New single, Luminescence, was released on 6th March 2020 and sees the band continue their relationship with producer Matt Glasbey (Editors, Marmozets).

 "I reckon Luminescence is a spot on example of what we're about musically" says frontman Danny Pugh. "When we're writing we always try to stick a few left turns in tunes that might catch people off guard a bit. That's what we wanted to get from mixing the psychedelic, eerie choruses with all the snarl and noise in the verses. Then for the outro we just wanted something massive that'd give everyone a proper melodic smack in the face".

The Hideaways also continue to build their reputation as a ferocious live act, having supported established names like Shaun Ryder and Little Comets alongside sharing stages with such up and coming bands as Fangclub, BERRIES and Football FC.

The first half of 2020 will see the band playing their first US shows at New Colossus Festival in New York (12-15th March) as well as gigging throughout the UK including a co-headline tour with The Alchemy in May.
