After the success of the Funeral for a Friend gig, Independent will host a second dose of rock this month when Kids in Glass Houses take to the stage.

Hailing from the Cardiff scene that produced acts such as Bullet For My Valentine and Funeral For A Friend, alternative pop/rockers Kids in Glass Houses immediately attracted attention from the rock scene’s biggest media outlets when they formed in 2003.

They were soon sharing stages with the likes of Dopamine, The Blackout, Lostprophets, Killswitch Engage and Cute Is What We Aim For, in addition to snagging spots at various festivals. The band’s debut single, Me Me Me, came out in early summer 2007, a song that was also featured on their EP E-Pocalypse.

The band’s debut studio album, Smart Casual, was released in 2008 and since then they’ve enjoyed success with singles such as Drive, Matters At All, Give Me What I Want and Undercover Lover, featuring The Saturdays’ Frankie Sanford.

Support comes from rising acts My Extraordinary, Boy Jumps Ship and Verses.

This show replaces their original gig on May 31 which was rescheduled due to illness. All original tickets are still valid.

* Kids in Glass Houses play Independent on Tuesday, July 30. Tickets are £11 from Independent or from
