INHEAVEN are slowly becoming Great Escape veterans having also played the festival last year and serve as a prime example of the exposure that it can bring. As well as touring with Circa Waves earlier this year, the band accrued an impressive following by supporting Blossoms in 2016 and the South London four-piece return to Brighton this May with an established presence about them.
While chatting to GIGsoup’s Ben Bowman as part of the ‘In Their Own Words’ series, the band revealed exactly who they’ll be checking out next week as well as summer plans, including ‘writing more bangers for the following summer’.
