LAZY HABITS *POSTPONED*+ FJOKRA
PLEASE NOTE: This event has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. Tickets remain valid, new date to be announced shortly
With the hype of upcoming sophomore album The Atrocity Exhibition fully lighting the way, brass infused hip-hop trailblazers Lazy Habits are set to ignite the UK music scene once again with 12 new dates announced for April and May 2015. The Kicking the Clouds tour will be the first live opportunity to hear the seven-piece’s explosive new material, which has been garnering celebrity and industry support in the lead up to it’s anticipated release later this year.
First single ‘The Breach’ unveiled on 20th February with an epic video featuring two huge actors in the making – Joshua Whitehouse from the recent UK hit Northern Soul and Taron Egerton, who stars in critically acclaimed Kingsman – Secret Service alongside A-List stars Colin Firth and Michael Caine, and who recently dubbed Lazy Habits his favourite act of the moment.
Filled with ‘aggressively pounding beats and brass’ (Altsounds) alongside slick lyrics about modern British life, Lazy Habits master infectious hooks and clever arrangements, making their stage show the benchmark others aim for and are one of the tightest and most powerful live performances in the UK. They haven’t just racked up a cult following at home though, with the band returning fresh from a string of sold out dates in Asia, where they are famed for collaborating with Asian superstar rapper Dwagie’s alongside US rap heavyweight DJ Premier.
With everything going their way, these new shows will be anything but lazy for the Habits as they put on a colossal live experience, one that stays with you long after you’ve left the venue.

Plus support from FJOKRA
Born in Dublin and now based in London, Fjokra and his eponymous band have gained a reputation for exhibiting a uniquely bizarre and energetic live show that ‘combines near-minimalistic, lo-fi electro-pop with retro swing, metal and occasional epic Muse-like explosions’ (Time Out).
Gracing stages at Isle Of Wight Festival, Beach Break Festival, Shambala, Boomtown and Liverpool Sound City, Fjokra was also hand picked by Adam Ant as support for his London show in November 2014. Collaborating as a performer, producer and instrumentalist with diverse names such as Duran Duran, The Clash, Tyondai Braxton (Battles), Reeps One, The Rotten Hill Gang and Hollie Cook, Fjokra is progressively building a name for himself as a unique and versatile artist.
With 5 track EP Thoughtsteps released June 2014, Fjokra is constantly writing and recording new material. The Mellowsound Sessions EP released online in December 2014 features a more ambient direction, and rumours of an album coming in 2015 are beginning to circulate.
