NEWS: FIZZY BLOOD UNVEIL NEW SINGLE ‘SUMMER OF LUV’
“We love this band!” – BBC Radio 1 Introducing
“A banger of a tune…a perfect demonstration of why Fizzy Blood have got where they are in such a short amount of time and sets them up well to go even further.” – The Tipping Point
“A beauty…one of those choruses you’ll still be singing tomorrow. Brilliant.” – Dave Rowntree (Blur), Radio X
If your music is drawing comparisons to the leather clad, cast iron spirit of Pulled Apart By Horses and Queens of the Stone Age, and The Dead Kennedys beckon you to support them on tour, then you must be doing something right. Explosive and guttural, Fizzy Blood are aptly named and causing a stir.
Fresh from their blistering performance at the hallowed grounds of Donington for Download Festival, Leeds band FIZZY BLOOD have unleashed their soundtrack to festival season, new single SUMMER OF LUV.
“The key guitar riff that can be heard throughout ‘Summer Of Luv’ was actually written whilst we were chilling out in our Super 8 Motel off a freeway in Austin, TX back when we first played SXSW festival in 2016. We took that riff home with us, turned it into a song and tried to capture in lyrics how we felt travelling into the unknown for the first time. In short, it’s our own little love letter to the State of Texas.”
– Benji Inkley, Vocals
SUMMER OF LUV follows previous single Pawn, which saw spins from BBC Radio 1 and was recently featured as Kerrang! Radio’s track of the week. FIZZY BLOOD also announce their performance at Reading & Leeds festivals in August, which adds to their hefty touring schedule this summer.
As they gear up to perform at the hallowed grounds of Donington this weekend for Download, it’s clear that 2017 has been their biggest year to date with their second performance at SXSW, a UK metal titans While She Sleeps followed by The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City. Summer will additionally see the band land at Rock For People (CZ), 2000 Trees and Tramlines festivals.
FIZZY BLOOD are putting the final touches on their next release which is due later this year on Killing Moon & Alya Records, with further details to be announced soon.
With a fuller throttled sound and more determination than ever, FIZZY BLOOD are scaling new heights and set to make one hell of a dent on the UK music scene.
