Salem come to The Vic in Swindon on 16 October.

Will Gould from Creeper and Matt Reynolds of Howards Alia joined forces for the side project, and the Swindon appearance is part of a newly-announced tour.

They described their self titled debut EP as “spooky, silly, romantic punk rock songs” when it was released through Roadrunner in October of last year.

Promoters Sheer Music & Bandit said: "You can hear the pop-punk, goth and rockabilly influences that are literally inked in their skin. 

"With them at the absolute top of their scene, there is no one in the UK delivering this genre better right now."

Tour support comes from former Holding Absence bassist James Joseph's new solo project, James and the Cold Gun.

Named after a Kate Bush song, with a playful twist on his name, the band is billed as a rock n’ roll blues revue. Akin to former British rock n’ roll heroes The Computers, the band signed to Gallows label Venn Records for the release of their debut album. 
More information about both bands can be found at https://www.facebook.com/ChurchofSalem  and https://www.facebook.com/andthe, and each has singles on YouTube.

Doors will open at 6pm for their Vic appearance, and tickets are priced at £10 in advance or £13 on the door. The night will be suitable only for people aged 16-plus.
