Information:

Frauds have been relentlessly touring and playing across the UK for the past few years. They have come a long way from their hometown of Croydon especially for a project that “was an excuse for a bit of fun”. Chris explains: “We’ve played music together since we were teenagers and we both took a break after a previous project fell apar”. When we decided to make music again, all we wanted to do was to have fun and make something that we like”

This has now resulted in a savage sound that blends their influence of Mclusky, The Jesus Lizard and Tom Waits together.

Chris and Mike’s bond is deep and their enjoyment of what they do is what draws people in. The band have shared stages with Idles, Mclusky, Slaves & Jamie Lenman, to name but a few (JL has been a huge champion of the band) and played 2000 Trees Festival in 2018 & 19, amongst other festivals around the country. Their live following grew exponentially in 2019 with Steve Lamacq playing the bands standalone single “Putin’s Day Off” on his BBC6 show, leading to and coinciding with a sell out show at The Victoria Dalston in February 2020.

Frauds live shows have become synonymous with fun and all round entertainment. “We always want to bring the room together and push what we can achieve as two people on a stage”, says Mikey. They have honed their craft on the pub circuit in the early days and have been able to express themselves all over much bigger stages in recent years. Chris adds “Sometimes it can get a bit bonkers and surreal but I wouldn’t have it any other way”

2020 was set to be a huge year before the pandemic hit, but luckily Frauds had already recorded their second album just before the initial UK lockdown hit. The album was recorded in a prestigious Belgian studio, at heroes’ Raketkanon recommendation. The result is the new album “Long Spoons”, which is being released in the tail end of 2021 by the wonderful Alcopop! Records, along with a UK headline tour and some festival dates sprinkled in.
