FEET set to step into Sheffield’s LeadmillPosted by: Annie Williams
The Coventry-based five-piece head to Sheffield in March
After a successful 2018, indie band FEET are putting their best foot forward as they step out for their first national headline UK tour.
Listed as one of NME’s essential new artists of 2019, the Coventry quintet performed in Sheffield last year at Tramlines return to the city for a headline gig at the Leadmill on March 1.
Talking to VIBE, FEET said: “Sheffield is a good place, we’ve played there loads back before any man (or his dog) knew us, places like Harrison’s (1854 bar) and the Washington.
“We’ve always had a good reception despite some shoddy performances and I’d almost certainly say it’ll be one of the liveliest nights of the tour, providing we can fill the room, so just pray for that aye.”
Following their summer festival appearances and support for singer/songwriter Declan McKenna on his 2018 tour, there was no rest for the band as they recently hit the studio for a month long stint to begin recording their debut album which will be released in late summer 2019.
Joined by producer Cam Blackwood, who has also helped big names such as Jamie T, London Grammar and George Ezra, the first fruits of the sessions will be revealed this month.
The UK and Ireland tour, which kicks off late February with 12 dates announced, will also debut the band’s new drummer Ben, formerly of Dead Pretties who joined the group at the back of last year.
Ahead of the summer tour, FEET will release their new single ‘English Weather’ on January 25 and with the new album almost completed, a UK tour and EU live music industry showcase Eurosonic already booked, FEET are anticipated to be the band on everyone’s lips by the summer 2019.
Tickets are available from The Leadmill website here for £6.60 (+ £1 booking fee).
