LICE + HAAL at Crofters Rights
Headfirst Editor's Pick

"Sell out warning! A rapturous return for Bristol’s travelling post-post-punk / swamp-rock societal satire, careening back into our lives with their demeted disregard for personal health and conventional timing. This is biting and savage guitar Dada FFO: black midi, Fat White Family, Hey Colossus, PiL, the Birthday Party."

A gig held at Crofters Rights on Thursday 30th May. The event starts at 20:00.

Formed in Bristol, LICE have become one of UK experimental rock’s most inventive, ambitious outliers. Newly signed to AD93, they will release new music in 2024.

LICE’s 2021 debut album WASTELAND: What Ails Our People Is Clear arrived to international acclaim from BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 1, KEXP, The Quietus, Financial Times and CRACK, who called it “a welcome lease of life for British avant-rock.” This led to shows at Reading & Leeds, Green Man and End Of The Road, an extensive EU tour supporting Sleaford Mods, and headline tours in the UK and EU. Prior to this, their double EP It All Worked Out Great was released on their champions IDLES’ label Balley Records, leading Loud & Quiet to declare them “the most exciting, inspiring and genuinely deranged new guitar band in the country.”
