Gig Of The Week: Panic Room

WHERE: Glasgow Cathouse
WHEN: Friday, September 2
Panic Room have a new EP and tour on the way.
The Welsh prog rockers release the EP Altitude on September 2. It includes their cover of ELP’s Bitches Crystal, plus the eight-minute animated video for the song Satellite, as well as an exclusive instrumental mix of Dark Star. There’s also a track each from the Visionary Position album and the Little Satellite EP. This will only be available at live shows.
On their upcoming tour, Panic Room – vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Anne-Marie Helder, guitarist Paul Davies, keyboard player Jonathan Edwards, bassist Yatim Halimi and drummer Gavin Griffiths – will play a variety of songs.
Says Edwards: “The gigs will include songs spanning the band’s career to date. From our debut album Visionary Position, current album Satellite (and its companion EP Little Satellite). We will also be playing new material from the soon to be recorded third album. And yes, we’ll be playing Bitches Crystal, which is fast becoming a live favourite. Even non-ELP fans seem to really like it!”
