WU LYF Reveal Dates For UK Tour & Tickets

World Unite! Lucifer Youth Foundation!, Or WU LYF as they prefer to be known, have announced a run of UK shows for June.

The Manchester band, who like to remain anonymous, formed in 2008 and are made up of four friends: Evans Kati, Tom McClung, Ellery Roberts and Joseph Manning. After making a series of early recordings available through their website, WU LYF began a monthly residency at Manchester's An Outlet coffeehouse at the start of 2010, catching the attention of the UK music industry.

The band's first gig outside of Manchester came in July 2010 at the MIDI Festival on the French Riviera. Subsequent shows include France’s Transmusicales Festival, Berlin's Transmediale festival and headline shows in Glasgow and London.

In July 2010 the band announced the formation of the Lucifer Youth Foundation, giving new members an illustrated bandit mask and a 12” LP featuring their tracks 'Concrete Gold' and 'Heavy Pop'. The band started recording their debut album in November 2010. Deciding against the conventional studio set up, they instead took over a disused church in Ancoats, Manchester to record their album. The album has been self-produced.

WU LYF are believed to have declined all record deal offers and instead plan to release their album independently around the world in the summer of 2011.

Catch them live on the below UK dates:

June 9th - Cardiff Clwb Ifor Bach
June 10th - Liverpool Kazimer
June 11th - Sheffield Queens Social Clubs
June 13th - Leicester Y Theatre
June 14th - Glasgow Grand Ole Opry
June 15th - Edinburgh Cabaret Voltaire
June 17th - London Village Underground

WU LYF Tickets are onsale from 9am on Friday 13th April. Click Here to Compare & Buy Wu Lyf Tickets

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Alt-J - Reduxer (Album Review)
Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
