Preview: Rixton at The Brook (04/11/2014)


New pop sensation Rixton are coming to The Brook, Southampton on the eleventh leg of their thirteen date, debut, headline UK tour.

The Manchester based quartet have shot to prominence in 2014 after a string of high profile performances here in UK, but more notably over in the US on shows such as The Voice USA and Ellen.  Just twelve months ago these four lads were still recording covers in a garage, covering such hits like ‘Ignition (Remix)‘ and ‘Don’t Wake Me Up‘.

In 2013 talent scout and manager Scooter Braun signed them to his label School Boy Records and is the man responsible for their meteoric rise to fame in 2014. He is also the same scout and manager behind artists Carly Rae Jepson, Psy, and Justin Bieber.

The band are due to release their debut album, Let the Road, through the label at the beginning of March 2015.  Their debut single, from the album, ‘Me and My Broken Heart’, went straight to the top of the UK Top 40 chart, giving them their first number one. The band celebrated by each getting “broken heart” tattoos.  Their second single, ‘Wait On Me’, is due for release on 16th November.

Tickets for their show at The Brook, Southampton can be bought from here for £15.20. Doors open at 19:00. Support from Young Kato.
