Phrases like “a hidden gem”and Artrocker magazine describing them as “…Rage Against The Machine gone slightly more UK hardcore” it’s about time we introduced you to Northern Ireland’s, Mojo Fury. With Guitars and probably half of the music press and on many people’s lips during 2011. The band have supported Biffy Clyro and Forward Russia at home; this year they toured the UK with Oceansize and Castrovalva, alongside shows with the likes of Foxy Shazam, whilst releasing their debut single ‘The Mann’.
Mojo Fury are just what you want from a modern rock band – riffs galore, vocal hooks to the brim, great songwriting, and a rhythm section that motors it down all the right paths – their feet dipped in the alternative side of “popular” rock music currently being rattled across by the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses and Future of the Left. The band have received radio play from Radio 1, Kerrang and XFM, TV play from Kerrang, Scuzz and Lava, and press support from Artrocker, Rock Sound and Total Guitar amongst others.
Second single ‘Colour of the Bear’ will be released Sunday 13th February 2011 on digital download. To coincide with this they will rip up the UK with BSM’s Hold Your Horse Is on the following dates in February, with more dates to be added between those and upcoming festival appearances in the summer. Expect some intense live shows…
