After storming performances at Community Festival, and support slots with DMA’s Sheffield’s RedFaces announce a headline UK tour in September (dates below). They’ve also confirmed they are taking part in this year’s Soccer 6 charity football tournament – taking place at Mile End Stadium on September 17th.
It’s already been a jam-packed year for the band, from playing a sold out set at Live at Leeds, to sponsoring the kit for their local football team, RedFaces are showing no signs of slowing down. Latest single ‘Wise Up’, the follow up to last year’s incendiary debut ‘Kerosene’ is currently setting playlists alight across the board. Watch the video, shot in Brighton at this year’s Great Escape Festival here.
RedFaces are Harry Lyon, Isaac White, Charlie Yapp and Ryan Laycock. Four lads from Sheffield treading what was once a well-worn path, these days the road less travelled. The journey started at 2Fly studios in Sheffield, recording demos with Alan Smyth, the man behind the Arctic Monkey's first ventures. Out of these sessions came the band’s first release 'Katie Come Home' in early 2015 – championed by BBC Introducing it also attracted the attention of the London A&R fraternity, eventually signing with RCA last year.
