GET INTO THIS – A BAND YOU MUST HEAR IN 2016
FRED PERRY SUBCULTURE ‘ONES TO WATCH 2016’
Following a fine debut year in 2015 with their first UK headline tour, several big support slots with the likes of PEACE, Pretty Vicious, DMA’s and Darlia, plus releasing their debut EP, 2016 is set to be another busy one for FLESH.
First up Hazza, Robbie, Cozza and Jon have announced their brand new killer track ‘GON N DUN’ with the band commenting “we’ve nailed our sound”. A kind of hybrid of grunge, rock, rave and beats somewhere in your face between The Prodigy playing guitars and Nirvana sampling breaks. FLESH will be releasing the track on own record label ‘sNotpop records’ in February… watch out for a new video to follow soon too!
Live, FLESH’s first show of 2016 will be in support of the worthy “independent venue week” at the Sugarmill in Stoke on Jan 27th with 6Music’s Steve Lamacq broadcasting live from the venue too. They’ll also be playing one of the prestigious NME Awards shows (associated with Austin Texas) in February 2016 supporting LA rockers ‘together Pangea’ with whom they’ll then be touring across the UK in February. Before that FLESH also will return to headline Manchester’s Sound Control following their sold out show in October for the venue’s 6th Birthday Party on Jan 30th.
FLESH have had a great response with various Industry tastemakers supporting the band in 2015. Their debut single ‘W8 4 ME/DEAD LONELY’ enjoyed airplay from Radio X (ex-XFM), BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing plus press & blog love from the likes of NME, DIY, Line of Best Fit, GigSlutz, Manchester Evening News & many more. Emphatically, Flesh also self-released single ‘NOT GNA’ in the summer too with their low budget DIY YouTube flick picking up 15K views in just a couple of months!
