Jamie Lenman to play acoustic set for IVW!January 27, 2015

jamie lenman 5 by dave kavanagh

The BOILEROOM is super excited to announce that the very dapper and always classy Jamie Lenman will be playing a very special acoustic set this Saturday, 31st January.

After a massive year of touring his debut solo album Muscle Memory with the Heavy Mellow band, and helping to welcome Independent Venue Week to The Boileroom at the beginning of 2014, we can’t wait for a stripped back intimate set from the man himself!

Jamie Lenman is best known as the singer, guitarist and songwriter for underground heroes Reuben, who toured and released relentlessly for most of the noughties. Their combination of brutal riffs, heartfelt melodies and frank, intelligent lyrics, together with their explosive live shows and innovative promo videos won them a hard core of dedicated fans and respect amongst peers and critics alike.

After a string of independent singles, regularly voted top of the MTV2 charts, the band released two albums with Xtra Mile (Frank Turner, Future Of The Left, Against Me!) and joined bands like Biffy Clyro, Fightstar and Billy Talent on tours around the UK and Europe. Upon their return, they founded their own label, Hideous Records, through which they released a live DVD documentary and their third, critically acclaimed album, ‘In Nothing We Trust’.

Eventually, the pressure of being in the band as well as running their own label and working full time jobs became too much, and they called it a day in 2008, releasing a posthumous rarities collection through Xtra Mile in 2009.

Now, after an absence of five years, Jamie Lenman returns to the UK music scene with his colossal double album ‘Muscle Memory’, a twenty three-track behemoth ready to bend the mind of the willing listener. Recorded over two years with INWT producer Sean Genockey, ‘Muscle Memory’ splits the trademark Reuben sound in two, with one disc focussing on melody and other focussing on riffery.

Tickets available from here.

Independent Venue Week – What’s OnJanuary 26, 2015


We’re starting the week on a contemplative note with our Music Meditation workshop, guided by Inner Pieces. There’s limited amount of space for these workhops – so do book your ticket in advance!


On Tuesday we’re championing our local music scene at our local label showcase. Failure By Design records, Lockjaw records, and Rose Coloured records have joined forces to bring you a line-up of killer acts: Almeida, Atiptoe, Throatpunch City, and Parachute For Gordo will be gracing the stage, or peruse the sweet records that’ll be onsale on the night. Tickets for this extravaganza are just £3, available here.


On Wednesday, Sunderland indie-popsters Frankie & The Heartstrings make a stop off at The Boileroom as part of their extensive tour for IVW. Catch them here in Guildford alongside local supports The Sheratones, Future Talks, and Wilker. Tickets available from here.


Thursday night, as yet little-known but terribly talented These Ghosts from Brighton will be popping up to Guildford to take to the stage. Inspired by the likes of Sigur Ros and Radiohead with a bit of leftfield electronica from The Knife and Mount Kimbie thrown in for good measure – we guarantee this’ll be the name on everyone’s lips by the end of this year! But don’t just take our word for it, The Line of Best Fit described their debut as ‘Enigmatically gorgeous and unsettling,’ – that’s what we like! Little Grim, Macrothyst, and Char Goodfellow will be joining the bill too. Tickets available from here.


On Friday, we give a big welcome back to local hearthrobs You Me At Six. We’re over the moon that they’ve come back to play here at The Boileroom and support their local music venue as part of IVW, it’s a real honour for us here! Tickets have now all sold out.

Saturday night – watch this space! Things are afoot x

JP Cooper WEB

Tickets have nearly sold out for the marvel that is JP Cooper this Sunday, tickets available here. Lovely locals Andy Ruddy and Tom Gatens will also be strutting their stuff onstage. Check out his forthcoming EP When The Darkness Comes – released today! ‘This Mancunian does a blend of folk, blues and soul with hints of gospel that manages to win the admiration of almost everyone who sees him performing. His warm voice can be so powerful that it is difficult not to get carried away; his melodies and his lyrics are so velvety soft that it appears impossible not to be amazed by their meaningfulness.” – Wave Magazine

Thank You!January 21, 2015



We are so thankful to have You Me At Six to play here at the venue as part of Independent Venue Week, and a big thank you to IVW for helping to make this happen.

We did our best working as a team with MusicGlue to ensure a smooth operation. Well done to everyone that got tickets. Let’s not forget this gig is to celebrate Independent Venue Week and support hardworking independent, regional venues; & the musicians they put on, on their journey to success. Please contact support@musicglue.com if you have experienced an issue.

We have a lot of other great gigs happening that week for IVW . Who knows, the next You Me At Six might be on one of those bills. Check out the full line-up for the week here: http://www.theboileroom.net/ivw-2015/

We DO NOT condone re-selling. If your ticket was not purchased directly through our website (Music Glue) then you will not be allowed entrance to the venue. We do not support re-selling in any form. It devalues the work that we as promoters, the musicians and crew that we work with do; and it exploits the fans that want to support those musicians too.

Please don’t buy a re-sold ticket, it’s just not cool. We will do our best to resell at face value any tickets that people cannot use – email info@theboileroom.net if you do have a spare ticket and we will try to reallocate them fairly.


YMAS Boileroom2

Guildford’s own You Me At Six will play a special one-off show at The Boileroom As part of Independent Venue Week. After a hugely successful year touring in 2014 after the release of their latest album Cavalier Youth, this Surrey-based band decided to pay homage to the small indie venues that helped to support them on their journey to stadium success.

After ending their previous album cycle ‘Sinners Never Sleep’ by headlining Wembley Arena for their ‘Final Night Of Sin’ show (and subsequently winning a Kerrang! award for ‘Best Event’) You Me At Six holed up at producer Neil Avron’s studio off of Sunset Boulevard in California. They spent 3 months bringing together Cavalier Youth and it turned out to be the perfect combination to create one of the most anticipated records of 2014.

The renewed drive and hunger within the You Me At Six camp has led to their considerable success expanding into the US. This success has led to ‘Room To Breathe’ becoming their biggest selling single to date, selling 140,000 copies Worldwide. This has led to two sold out tours in The States along with a number of TV appearances. 2014 also brought about sold out European and Australian headline tours, along with a big festival summer, both at home and abroad. Undoubtedly, the highlight of which was their big slot on the main stage at Reading and Leeds.

It’s been a huge year but with a UK arena tour about to sell out, 2015 is setting up to be even bigger.

Now in it’s second year, Independent Venue Week (IVW) is a nationwide event that brings together and champions the UK’s independent venue circuit. Over 80 venues across the UK will be playing host to special one-off shows across 26th Jan-1st Feb; and the Boileroom is no exception. We’re delighted to welcome back You Me At Six, the now internationally acclaimed act that once started out in our fair town of Guildford.

Tickets will sell quickly for this one, so do get in there quick when they go on sale on Wednesday 21st January 2015 at 9am from www.theboileroom.net sharp!

In the run-up to this incredibly exciting show; we’ve curated a whole host of events as part of IVW, read more about our full programme here: http://www.theboileroom.net/ivw-2015/
