Festival Feature: Stepping Stones

Everything Everything are playing lots of small UK festivals during the summer months but one in particular will promise a very special experience for their fans.  Set in the grounds of Kirklinton Hall, near Carlisle in North Cumbria, Stepping Stones Festival will celebrate its 5th year during the weekend of 10th-12th June 2016.  Fans may recall that Jonathan and Michael grew up in Cumbria and Northumberland and this festival has a family connection as Jonathan’s Mum is one of the organisers!


Jonathan and Alex will be performing an exclusive acoustic set which is something you won’t see anywhere else this year. They’re scheduled to appear on the main stage at 4.15pm on Saturday 11th June and other main acts over the weekend include the legendary Steeleye Span and well known westcountry acoustic roots duo Show Of Hands.  The festival is only expected to have a maximum capacity of 400 people so it really will be a rare opportunity to see Alex and Jonathan playing up close, not to mention possibly catching them for a chat at the bar before or after their set!

Tickets for the whole weekend (which includes all the music and all the other events and activities) are just £70 per adult, full day tickets are £40 and single main stage concert tickets are £25.  Any adult ticket (weekend/day/single concert) admits up to 2 Under 16s for free, which has to make this one of the best value festival deals around!  Camping is available on site for £5 a person (tent or campervan) and Under 12s are free.

Interview: Examiner.com talks to Jonathan ahead of EE’s US Tour

Examiner.com has today published a great article about Everything Everything and exclusive interview with Jonathan.  The band will be heading over to the States next month for SXSW and to support The Joy Formidable on their tour.  Here’s an excerpt of the interview:

Examiner: Have you guys gotten over the news of Bowie’s death? I’d imagine he would have been one of your heroes?

JH: It’s affected everybody, not just people in music. I spent a lot of time in stupid corners of the internet and often there will be people saying they hated someone or did not like what they did but I haven’t seen any of it this time. Everybody has either been inspired by him, or have at least one Bowie favorite song. It’s just very depressing and we all feel the loss.

News: Jeremy writes for Huff Post

Jeremy wrote an interesting piece on Huffington Post yesterday regarding the band’s DJ set raising money for Syria tonight in London.  Here’s an excerpt:

Being in a band means there isn’t always much we can do to help causes through our work. So if we’re asked, we try to take the opportunities. What’s going on in Syria at the moment is so obviously pertinent, so present. The politics are enormously complicated and we don’t profess to know half enough about it. But at its core is the biggest humanitarian crisis of our lifetime, and human beings who simply want to survive, who want their children to be safe.

Interview: Jeremy chats to Bristol Live Magazine

Ahead of their biggest tour to date, Jeremy from Everything Everything had a chat with online listings magazine Bristol Live and spoke about playing Get To Heaven live.  Here are a couple of key quotes:

“It’s going to be our longest ever show, with the most amount of ‘information’ in it; we’ve got three albums to pick from now.  We want to play as much of this record as we feel people will stomach and hopefully we’ve got a license to with this one.  We could play every track from the new album and I don’t think it would seem like we were ramming it down their throats. We’re in a pretty lucky position right now”

“I think we’d be foolish and complacent not to follow this album up as quickly and to the best of our ability as we can”

Article: Jonathan chooses his favourite albums for The Quietus

Jonathan has just given music blog, The Quietus, a list of his ‘Baker’s Dozen’ favourite albums.  Unsurprisingly it includes albums by Radiohead and The Beatles, but there are also some unexpected choices too!  This is some of what he had to say about Kid A:

It’s really slapdash in the way it’s recorded, it’s really awkwardly mixed. It sounds like they’ve done it themselves out of old pieces of machinery that shouldn’t work anymore. Gone are all the shiny, beautiful guitar tones and high production. Even his (Thom Yorke’s) voice is beautiful and yet it’s been corrupted and you can’t really hear what he’s saying, and he’s singing falsetto. All the stuff that we kind of relied on them for all got chucked in the bin and that’s just fucking awesome!

Interview: Michael talks to the Yorkshire Post

Ahead of their performance at Leeds Festival at the end of the month, Michael had a chat with local newspaper, the Yorkshire Post about the reception Get To Heaven has received, the writing process and returning to Leeds, the city where he spent 2 years studying music.  Here’s a quote:

“I have a big place in my heart for Leeds,” he says. “I was only there for two years but it made a big impression on me. I think it’s the perfect student city and the perfect size. I live in Manchester now and that’s a great city as well, but Leeds is a bit more manageable somehow and even in two years I really grew to love it so I always go back to Leeds and have a lot of fondness for it.”
