Thekla better make sure its moorings are tied up properly, because with Van Zeller‘s homecoming this Friday, there is a serious risk of the ship drifting away due to the raucous activity happening in its hull. I only partly jest.

Last time the Bristol four-piece played a headline show in The Louisiana, the sold-out show melted into a sweaty mess. Since then the band have been relatively quiet, dropping a new single ‘The Coward’ last month, but now much else.

Friday’s show is the chance for Van Zeller to show us that they have lost none of the intensity, energy or sing-along choruses that made us fall in love with them in the first place.

With Bristol’s premiere post-hardcore outfit Milo’s Planes and Bournemouth’s loveable rogues Leeches in tow, there is literally only one word that can describe what to expect on Friday night: Riffs.

Listen to Van Zeller’s latest single ‘The Coward’ below, and buy tickets to the show here and on DICE.
