From Red Stripe’s This Feeling TV to Tom Grennan breaking world records… Here’s this weekly dose of your ‘This Feeling’s Five A Week’
TOM GRENNAN SMASHES WORLD RECORD FOR MOST GIGS IN TEN HOURS
Bedford born – London based, singer/songwriter, Tom Grennan smashed a Guinness world record of ten gigs in 12 hrs yesterday to celebrate the release of his debut album ‘Lighting Matches‘. Starting in Manchester and finishing in Marlborough, Tom met strict criteria of all ten shows having to be 30 miles apart and with more than 10 people at each show. Tom Grennan has literally exploded on the scene over the last 18 months, with his own unique songwriting and energetic performing style. Inspired by soul, blues, grime and indie, Tom was selling out venues including Brixton Academy before his debut album was even released. He makes his second appearance on Red Stripes This Feeling TV this month, which showcases the biggest, best and newest talent around as well as celebrity guests, interviews and telly chucking.
Following a string of successful festival performances, Gordon Smart from Radio X quizzed Tom on the show about what it was like having such a positive response from the general public.
‘It’s amazing, man… They’re singing songs that they don’t even know, and, for me, to hear them singing songs they don’t even know proves the songs are catchy, init. And they’re relatable. And it’s connecting: the energy that I give to the crowd, and the crowd gives me that energy back – well, it’s amazing.’

Just a week to go before Sheffield’s intercity multi-venue festival Tramlines kicks off. With the main festival located in the city’s Hillsborough park this year, the festival celebrations continue in venues in and around the city centre. In the centre of Sheffield at The Great Gatsby and Cafe Totem, This Feeling and Pirate Studios are bringing you one of their impressive line ups. It’s hard to highlight a selection of bands from the line up as there isn’t one band on the bill that isn’t gaining true momentum on the unsigned scene. However, we have chosen five we feel cannot be missed. You can read more about The Wholls, Himalayas, The Pale White, SPINN and Dirty Laces here… Tramlines Cafe Totem Preview.
Hot on the rise, Glaswegian Punk Rockers Rascalton head out on tour with This Feeling on the 16th July. Hitting Nottingham, Birmingham and Manchester, the band are also playing at Truck next weekend.

At the helm of the Scottish punk invasion, they are one of the most exciting, new prospects to come out of Glasgow.
