UK Tour May/June
Following recent successful tours supporting Möngöl Hörde and InMe plus summer festival appearances at Download, Hevy and 2000Trees, Bristol’s Oxygen Thief returns with a run of solo dates across the UK.
These days often playing as part of a heavy three-piece setup, this latest string of intimate dates sees OT return to the solo acoustic rock show which originally made him his name. One man, one guitar and a few exuberant effects pedals, expect loud songs about the attempted redevelopment of Aberystwyth and some other loud songs which aren’t about that, delivered with tongue often planted firmly in cheek, and the occasional human pyramid.
OT’s first full-band album The Half Life Of Facts was released last year on London’s Xtra Mile Recordings (Frank Turner/To Kill A King/Against Me!), the highlight of which is punchy punk rock, dusted with sugar and slammed into your face like a great custard pie.
Oxygen Thief is scheduled to melt your face on the following dates:
16th BRIGHTON Alternative Great Escape @ Pav Tav
