Dumb to headline The Sunflower Lounge Bham

As 2013 got under way four childhood friends were given a wake-up call by the spotlight on the music scene in their native Birmingham and decided to build on their formative years of gigging and songwriting and take their music seriously to form Dumb. For their first ever gig the band went straight to the prestigious stage of London’s KOKO and the legendary Club NME night before returning home to headline Birmingham’s O2 Academy. Influenced by Pixies and cult American indie rock heroes Built To Spill, the quartet create a bold and brash combination of self-assured swagger, slick melodies and Dylan’s rasping vocals, which has frequently caught the attention of the likes of NME and BBC Radio 1.

This August the quartet return for an intimate headline show at The Sunflower Lounge on Thurs 14th August, to celebrate the release of forthcoming EP Chew Me Up, Spit Me Out. The EP scheduled for release on 12-inch vinyl and download on 18th August, and can be pre-ordered here.
