“The video for ‘Pawn’ shot on VHS and was made to emulate the style of those horrible 80’s PSA videos. I like the way that kind of corny, un-self-aware, salesmen like attitude parodies the attitudes within the mainstream music industry even today and hopefully that comes across when people watch it. It was shot within a day in an art studio in Leeds and a lot of our mates came down, dressed up and got involved in the making of the video so we had a lot of fun making it.” – Paul Howells, Guitars
‘Pawn’ has seen spins from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, and was recently featured as track of the week on Kerrang! Radio.
Explosive and guttural, the band are aptly named and causing a stir. Releasing their colossal debut EP ‘Feast’ in 2015, widespread praise for the record fuelled a formidable live run, highlights including shows alongside Allusondrugs, The Virginmarys, Max Raptor and The Dead Kennedys.
2017 is shaping up to be Fizzy Blood’s biggest year yet. The band made their second appearance at SXSW, which was followed by the aforementioned 19-date run with While She Sleeps. they will kick off a hefty festival schedule, which will include The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Camden Rocks, Download, 2000 Trees and Tramlines – with more to be announced soon.
The band 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.
