Fresh from their blistering performance at 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.
"Being a band based in Leeds all you hear, all summer long is ‘Ahh so you're going to Leeds Festival right?’. In years previous we'd have said with broken hearts a collective no. We're all buzzing
to now actually reply to those people with ‘yeah see you there!’. Without a doubt, it is our favourite festival in the UK, and it'll be an exciting first for many of us to check out Reading festival
too. We love mud so much!"
- Benji Inkley
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, 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.
