The release of MARMOZETS second album ‘Knowing What You Know Now’ resulted in the young quintet heralded as one of the most important bands on the British rock scene. That reputation has been further reiterated by consistent support at Radio 1 from DJs including Daniel P Carter, Annie Mac and Scott Mills.
Now the band are set to prepare for their main stage outing at this summer’s Download Festival by playing a tour in May. The new dates add to a schedule that also includes The Community Festival (with Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines and more), TRNSMT festival, Kendal Calling, Standon Calling as well as headline shows in Dublin and Belfast.
Tickets for the May tour go on sale from 9am this Friday, March 2nd.
Recorded with the legendary producer Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies), ‘Knowing What You Now Know’ is the band’s most ambitious and accomplished offering to date. While ‘Play’, the pounding ‘New Religion’, the pulse-quickening ‘Major System Error’ and the spiky ‘Lost In Translation’ find MARMOZETS embracing a new intensity within their controlled chaos, the band have the courage to explore fresh territory too.
Consisting of two sets of siblings, the MacIntyres (Becca, Sam and drummer Josh) and the Bottomleys (lead guitarist Jack and bassist Will), MARMOZETS built a cult underground following with a series of independently released EPs. Their reputation exploded after they signed to Roadrunner Records and released their debut album ‘The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets’. Praised by Q, Noisey, NME and The Guardian, it also won Kerrang!’s coveted Album of the Year award.
