Following two years of perseverance and building a devoted fanbase through their delightful Pop Punk musings, the hardest working Scottish underground 5-piece are preparing to release their debut EP ‘We’re Not Even Sorry’ which follows from their ‘Calamity Insane’ and ‘No Sleep ‘til Bedtime!’ demos. The EP shows a drastic evolution from previous efforts showcasing their strongest levels of playing ability, musicianship and songwriting that the band has offered yet.

Picnic Basket Nosedive cites a long list of influences with each individual member bringing something creatively different to the table. With their roots firmly planted in the pop punk soil, Picnic Basket Nosedive take nods from many other styles fusing metallic rhythm sections and Thin Lizzy-inspired dual guitar passages into their sound providing a fresher take on the current trends that dominate the pop punk scene they cherish deeply.
The band’s debut EP ‘We’re Not Even Sorry’ takes you on a soaring journey from start to finish with catchy choruses, bouncy rhythms and guitar sections that will have you dusting off that old air guitar in seconds. After debuting on Reverbnation, in just one week Picnic Basket Nosedive reached the top 100 on the website’s Global Rankings (at this point of writing peaking at #56) with several hundred plays per song. It has been met with a raving reception from fans and critics alight even surprising many promoters throughout the UK just in time as they look to book their recent summer tour.

Short Bio:
‘Picnic Basket Nosedive’ formed at the end of Summer 2010 through mutual boredom and discontent with a local music scene that had taken itself far too seriously. From their first gig in April 2011 and a bout of many line-up changes the band were met with gradually growing interest and instant recognition due to the unusual name. In the space of a year and a half the band’s ambition and drive saw them tour Scotland twice (totalling 75 gigs throughout this time), release 2 demos and share stages in Glasgow with many bigger names including Hawthorne Heights, Autumn In Disguise, The Maddigans, Maker, Colt .45, The Bottom Line and Jonny Craig to name just a few. Picnic Basket Nosedive can confidently hold their heads up high as an upcoming favourite with Glasgow’s music scene, now gaining respect and friendships from local, touring bands and crowds alike. With a captivating live performance other bands would usually save for much bigger venues, 2013 already sees them supporting touring bands they have become close friends with, and with hopes to reach England, Wales and Ireland by the end of the year, Picnic Basket Nosedive are more than ready to storm the UK music scene and make themselves known to many.
