A preview of the festival...

Those guys at Relentless Energy Drink just keep on giving...Not intent on bringing us a monthly Garage Session showcasing some of the best new acts around, they've organised a three-day extravaganza of live music and entertainment.

In addition to installations and galleries, there are of course, an array of bands, ranging from the strange, to the heavy, to the downright weird...

Taking between 21st-23rd October at the Relentless Garage, here are some of the acts already confirmed for October's shindig...

The Sounds
Post-New Wave all the way from Sweden, with a twist: sweet female vocals give the band a softer edge. And The Sounds certainly know how to throw a party, well there's a fair few of them, so that always helps...http://www.myspace.com/thesounds

Chrome Hoof
A sprawling collective of theatrical, mutant performers who take elements of jazz, funk, electro and hardcore and throw it all into an indescrible mixing pot of sonic chaos. http://www.myspace.com/chromehoof

Does It Offend You, Yeah?
Electro-rock at its most vivacious and youthful, Kitsune's most oultandlish performers (and dressers) have been setting ears on fire for a couple of years now and are guaranteed to pull in the crowds. www.myspace.com/doesitoffendyou

The Shoes
Uber cool French duo The Shoes are relative newcomers to the world of music-making, but have already got tongues wagging with their melodic electro. Check out their super minimix on their myspace HERE

Band Of Skulls
Southampton’s Band of Skulls make scuzzy, blues-infused rock with just the right balance of sun-kissed stomp and melancholic brilliance. The Clash favourites may have fallen off the radar for a while but they are back, and they're stronger than ever...www.myspace.com/bandofskulls

Boxer Rebellion
Trans-Atlantic indie boys and proteges of Alan McGee, The Boxer Rebellion have been in the business of music making since 2001, so they are old hands at the whole thing. But if you haven't had the pleasure of listening to them before, check them out HERE

Do not be fooled by their choice of moniker. Those expecting a snotty nosed, ramshackle punk outfit will be (un)pleasantly surprised. Jangly, echoing post-punk is way more their thing..http://www.myspace.com/scum1968

The Violet May
After their storming success at the May Energy Session, the Sheffield band have been invited back to play again. Breathing life into a stale old scene, The Violet May make full-throttle, dirty rock and roll a la BRMC, with a stadium-sized stage presence and electrifying live performances to boot. http://www.myspace.com/thevioletmay

The Damned Things
Heavyweight, heavy metal titans The Damned Things are a punk supergroup with a punk soul. Playing their first London show in June, we can't wait to see them blast out their tracks in the true spirit of Relentless. http://www.myspace.com/thedamnedthings
