New Band of the Day No 1034 from the Guardian, To Kill a King will be returning to the festival to play Friday night.The Leeds five piece band have been named by a few as “one’s to watch” although Frank Finlayson described their 2011 appearance as “insipid” (full review – Rockness 2011- A Paid Perspective although to be honest the full review gives no more away). state the band “places equal emphasis on both melody and lyrics without sounding mediocre”, and with the support of the Communion label, you can’t but think that Frank (or the band) were just having an off day.

Regardless they will be joining The Draymin (see – The Draymin announced as Sound City winners) on the line up of Rockness 2012. If you see any more early announcements we would love to hear them you can email us at

Early bird tickets can be bought for £125 here (this is an early bird price and can be withdrawn at any time)

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me via our Facebook page.
