Our Favourite Venues: Gig Memories with Yorkshire Psychedelic Grunge Band Allusinlove

In this ongoing feature, Leeds band Allusinlove spoke to us about some of their favourite live music venues around the UK.



The latest band to chat to us about their favourite venues and memories is Yorkshire band Allusinlove who have just released the video for fan favourite “My Cat”.

Top Local Venue: The Queens Mill, 1 Aire St, Castleford WF10 1JL
– This place is a very aesthetically pleasing building and a visually interesting venue to host events in. It’s an old converted flour mill that sits by The River Aire which plays host to various live music events, tribute acts, craft markets, art fairs and beer festivals! It also has an excellent sense of community with local residents and business all pooling in to keep the building operational. We hosted our single launch party at this venue and we shot our latest music video for “Just Like Hell”.

Our favourite gig memory
– Having nearly 20,000 people hold up their phones and lighters for us during the introduction of the first song we ever wrote, “Sunset Yellow”, in an arena supporting Muse – a band we grew up idolising.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
