Belter are thrilled to announce that their new EP is on sale NOW!
“The Invisible Cat E.P.” contains three brand new tracks – “The Invisible Cat”, “What’s Your Excuse?” and “Good Times Can Wait” produced by Belter and Stephen Stewart (founder member and guitarist of “The Enid”) whose long list of credits include producing diverse artistes such as Kim Wilde (Kids In America) and Christian Death.
The E.P. is something of a progression for the band, introducing some enormously talented musicians to add brass, strings & slide guitar to compliment the Belter trademark tightly woven rhythms, ear worm melodies & cutting lyrics.
You can download the EP directly from www.belter.bandcamp.com or watch a preview at http://youtu.be/6jjz0M19GqA
Belter play our first gig of 2013 at The New Cross Inn on Thursday 10th of January – come and dance all those holiday excesses away and join the New Years Revolution!

We have a couple of exciting gigs lined up for the second week in December. On Friday 7th, we head up to Salford to play at Crescent 20 (www.facebook.com/events/521795967831907/) with “Kill Pretty” & “The Sandells” – two great bands from the Manchester/Salford area. The next day we travel back home to Camden to play at the legendary Dublin Castle (https://www.facebook.com/events/169812629827326/) with “Joy Revision” – the UK’s top Joy Division/New Order tribute band.
Belter play at “The Golden Fleece” in Chelmsford next Thursday 8th of November on a bill absolutely riddled with talent with Benjamin Bloom & East End Promises sharing the stage (Facebook Event: www.facebook.com/events/465844866792874/).
The Fleece (www.facebook.com/golden.fleecechelmsford.7) has been building up a fearsome reputation as a great live venue with events nights already booked up almost a year in advance. So, if you are in reach of the city and are Rock N Roll enough to stay out after 9pm on a schoolnight, pop along!
With keyboard wizard James jetting off to the land of the rising sun, the remaining 4/5ths of Belter played at Camden Rock by invitation of Indigo Down (www.indigodown.com) whose support band had pulled out at the last moment.
Special thanks to Promoters Zarathustras Live Events whose front man Zaid looked after the bands for the evening with enthusiasm, the audience who drove us on and the venue whose underground carpark dressing room was awesome!
Al in all a very successful evening – a thousand cheers to all who made it happen.
Belter play a last minute gig at Camden Rock on Saturday 27th of October (www.camdenrock.co.uk) situated at 18 Kentish Town Road, NW1 9NX. It’s about a brisk 20 second walk from Camden Tube Station (Northern Line) so you should have enough energy left to enjoy not only us but three other top bands.
Entry is £6 and that includes guest DJs from Shine On! spinning indie club classics until 3am! To REALLY twist your arm, there is also a late bar with discounts on selected drinks.
BELTER kick the show off promptly at 8pm, so get there in plenty of time to wind up.
For the first time in the UK (following successful outings in Amsterdam), Belter bring their “Unplugged” set to London at The Islington, 1 Tolpuddle Street, London N1 0XT for a more intimate show. Stripped down versions of Angelo K’s musical musings show that, beyond the noise & bluster, the songs still stand proud and are as wickedly twisted as ever. We will also be premiering 3 brand new “never heard anywhere before” songs. Which is nice.
The Facebook event can be found at www.facebook.com/events/468612596512034/
Put your name down on the list and have a free night out on us. Food & drink NOT included……
Belter had a great evening at Walthamstow Town Hall on Friday 21st of September as part of the Walthamstow Festival, an annual event held to promote music & the arts in Waltham Forrest with many diverse acts performing at various venues in the area over a four day period.
Also on the bill were the brilliant Steve White & The Protest Family (www.facebook.com/protestfamily) who are well worth a listen, mixing Mandolins, Acoustic Guitars, Violins & a range of sundry instrumentation (apart from drums) together with hard hitting political messages.
Many thanks to EVERYONE who made this evening a big success.
We are now looking at booking gigs towards the end of the year (October/November/December), so any promoters/agents/etc that would like us to Belt your venue, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Belter return to the Suffolk Village of Halesworth to play at the 15th annual “Gig In The Park” Festival (www.giginthepark.co.uk). Last year, we played on the Saturday bill with the thoroughly excellent “Dhol Foundation” & Ska giants “The Beat” and we are proud to have been invited back, this time on Friday 10th August 2012 as main support to Eurovision winner Katrina (of The Waves).
This will be the last gig of our summer schedule – back with new shows in Autumn!
