LOCAL band Penguins Kill Polar Bears are returning to their roots to play a home show on April 18.

It will be the first time the rockers have noised up the Royal Burgh in three years as they’ve notched up several UK tours, gaining rave reviews.

They have already released two EPs - 2010’s ‘Dawn’ and ‘Vessels and Veins’ in 2011 - and a single.

Now based in Edinburgh, founding members Ben Proudlock and Kieran McGuckian still consider Linlithgow their home and can’t wait to return as part of their Scottish tour with Farewell Singapore. They are recording their debut album for release in late summer.

The band, also featuring Fraser Sanaghan on guitar and Gavin Cormack on bass, are known for their extremely loud sound, drawing influence from artists such as the Smashing Pumpkins, Brand New, Mogwai and Manchester Orchestra.

Penguins Kill Polar Bears play St John’s building on Union Road. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are £5.
