Fargo Promotions present WARD XVI at Arches Venue Coventry!
The gates of Whittingham Asylum have been struck open and for the first time in history the high security Ward XVI invites members of the public to meet face to face with the UK’s most violent serial killer.
Journey into the mind of Psychoberrie as she gives an insight into her life prior to incarceration.
This sordid tale of deceit and manipulation is represented with a genre-defying mix of hard-hitting metal riffs, off-beat ska rhythms, melancholic piano, accordion, catchy female vocals, a hint of electro, and to top it all off an engaging, energetic theatrical live show.
In the summer of 2013 in the city of Preston in the Northwest of England, a group of misfits got together for a new musical project with the aim of creating something completely unique. Each musician coming from a different musical background drawing in influences from the likes of Alice Cooper, Lordi, The skintz, Stolen Babies, Scar Symmetry, Diabolo Swing Orchestra, Iron Maiden, Alter Bridge, Jason Becker and Avatarium.
Since the release of their debut EP in January 2015 the band have gone from strength to strength, headlining shows in and around the North West with an ever-growing fan base. The highlights of Ward XVI’s career so far include playing the main stage at O2 Academy Leeds in the final of the Soundwaves music competition, supporting William Control and The Men that will not be Blamed for Nothing and to top it off Ward XVI also progressed to the Bloodstock Open Air Festival New Blood Stage after winning Metal 2 the Masses Burnley.
Their Bloodstock performance went down an absolute storm, packing the New Blood Tent out at 10:30am which resulted in several interviews throughout the day with Total Rock, Bloodstock TV, Planet Mosh and Uber Rock to name a few.
Due to their outstanding performance the inmates went on to bag themselves an additional sponsor prize of a brand new PA system courtesy of Studiomaster.
Ward XVI have already been added to the roster of Breaking Bands and PentreFest 2018.
After a great response from the release of their self-titled EP they returned to the studio to record a 12-track concept album titled “The Art of Manipulation” which was released 01/07/2017.
