Big Top, Friday 2015
Following 2014’s blistering debut single Succubus, Demob Happy have just announced a string of live dates across the UK and Europe. The band will kick off the festival season in style playing at Wychwood on the Friday night. Demob Happy left the UK’s small venues smouldering last year after unleashing their impulsive garage rock wrath on their debut tour, so we can’t wait to hear more.
“Crowned Brighton’s most exciting band… downright thrilling”
Their debut release was met by a wave of acclaim from the likes of the Guardian, NME, DIY, Q, Classic Rock and many more gaining them a spot in the NME’s ‘50 New Bands Set To Storm 2015’ list, and a date at DIY’s ‘Hello 2015’ show at the Old Blue Last supporting Girl Band.
“Tongue firmly in cheek, but the music is deadly serious!”
Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1
Succubus also received airplay from BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe and Phil Taggart. Whether it’s battling in court for their gear back from the noise police, making music videos on a £10 budget, or recording and producing everything they do themselves, then returning the gear to the shop afterwards for a refund - Demob Happy didn't get it easy, they just made it look that way.
