High octane Leeds rockers Fizzy Blood are a mosher’s nirvana – all careering riffs, hurtling drums and killer choruses.
With three years of noise-making now behind them, they’re stepping out in 2017 to become one of the UK’s most vital bands.
Energetic shows at SXSW have upped the ante, while brand new track Pawn sets the agenda for more releases planned for later this year via Killing Moon & Alya Records.
Before they head out on tour with While She Sleeps at the end of April (dates below), we spend 30 seconds with the gang to learn more…
We first started making music because…
We thought it would be fun.
We have been making music since…
We were all very, very young, but we didn’t start making music together until we met in Leeds in 2014.
Our music is…
Hard to define and we like it that way.
You’ll like our music if you listen to…
Music with an open mind while wearing a leather jacket.
Our favourite venue is…
Brudenell Social Club in Leeds. It’s our local.
Music is important because…
In a world which is currently so divisive, it’s one of the few things that can bring us together.
Our biggest inspiration is…
The experiences that shape who we become and the things we do along the way.
Our dream collaboration would be…
Frank Ocean, Josh Homme and Kevin Parker, while Lars Ulrich makes the coffees.
To try us out, listen to our song…
If we weren’t making music we’d be…
Younger looking with fatter wallets.
In 10 years’ time we want to be…
Out of rehab and on to our triumphant comeback album.
