APF Records is hosting a special one-off gig at The Bread Shed in Manchester UK on 3rd February, featuring all 14 of its current active signed bands playing across two stages.
Founded by Andrew Field in March 2017 APF Records has released albums, EPs and singles by Under, Diesel King, Blind Haze, Mastiff, The Wizards Of Delight, Tronald, The Hyena Kill, RedEye Revival, Ba’al and BongCauldron during its first 12 months.
The label already has releases lined up for 2018 by Desert Storm (new album “Sentinels” out 16th March), Pist, Nomad, Barbarian Hermit and Battalions as well as further releases from the bands mentioned above.
Due to the logistical challenges of getting all 14 bands in one place at once this is likely to be the only time the entire APF Records roster will play in one place on one day. Thus advance tickets have been moving fast and the event (at the 400-capacity venue) is predicted to be a sell-out.
Doors open at 1.30pm with the first band performing at 2pm. The event will finish 10 hours later when Desert Storm headline the main stage.
“With Ba’al having been reviewed in Kerrang!, Terrorizer and Metal Hammer, Pist having played Bloodstock Open Air Festival and been booked for this year’s Desertfest London, BongCauldron being featured in Decibel magazine, and other such high profile appearances there is a lot of interest in my label at the present” says Andrew Field of APF Records. “If the goodwill around us and the increasing popularity of our bands continues apace I suspect any future gathering of all our artists will likely be in a much bigger venue”.
