The Filthy Tongues

Darkly atmospheric alt-rock gothic soothsayers from Edinburgh, made up of Martin Metcalfe, Fin Wilson and Derek Kelly, who were previously members of Goodbye Mr Mackenzie and Angelfish alongside Shirley Manson.

Their most recent album In These Dark Places (Jan 2023) is the final part of a trilogy inspired by their home town, following on from Jacob’s Ladder and Back to Hell, and delivers a suitably uncompromising conclusion to this fine body of work. In These Dark Places spent 4 weeks in the Scottish and UK National Charts on its release on Last Night From Glasgow label.

Summer 2023 sees them with a number of projects – curating the In These Dark Places mini-festival in Glasgow, appearing in the multimedia spectacular Revelations of Rab McVie (which features their original music) at Pleasance Grand at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival before hitting the road in their own right in November.
