Since its creation, the group have had more than a hundred dates as opening act for different bands throughout France and abroad, such as Triggerfingers, Lofofora, Zebda, Mass Hysteria, Didier Wampas, No One Is Innocent, etc. and spots in acclaimed festivals (Rock’n’Poche Festival, The Festival du Chien à Plûmes, Musikmesse (Germany), Mannrock (Belgium) Zikamart Festival (Switzerland), Umsonst & Draussen Festival (Germany)).

The Running Herd
Bad Horses – New Album available NOW!
If you are not used to hard folk, Bottle Next are a great group to get you in the mood, for the drum and guitar duo succeeds in developing an alchemy on stage made up of complexity and letting go.
A drummer who hits like missile strikes, combined with a sassy electro-acoustic guitarist / singer, the pair deliver a sulphurous mix of rock, metal, blues, folk and progressive rhythms carving out every note they play.
From folk-songs to their rock and roll attitude, Bottle Next are the image of their influences as vast and improbable as Michael Jackson, Meshuggah, Queens Of The Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, Fink, Zappa, Bjorn Berge and Vassiliu.
The group comes into it’s own on stage, and is powerful, musical and overexcited. The hard-folk sound implodes all borders. Progressive, playful … and simply enjoyable … Their passage on stage leaves no one indifferent!
