Leeds quartet FUDGE to perform at Reading, Leeds and Bingley Weekender

TRACK OF THE DAY: FUDGE - 'Not A Threat Just A Warning' - Listen Now

Barely a year into their existence, with a reputation already for wild and breathless live performances, Leeds quartet FUDGE. have been invited to perform at three of the summer’s most prestigious festivals: Reading, Leeds and Bingley Weekender. 

FUDGE. possess a confidence, an attitude, a swagger. They write songs that hit you like a hammer; songs that have encouraged observers to talk about them in the same breath as Rage Against the Machine, Skepta, The Prodigy, Royal Blood, Dizzee Rascal and The Streets.

The launch night earlier this year for their second single, NOT A THREAT JUST A WARNING, at Leeds 360 Club, witnessed scenes that took the breath away. In FUDGE. parlance it “went off”; it got messy and dangerous and exhilarating. It also saw the ‘sold-out-doors-locked’ signs before the first support had finished in a futile attempt to prevent anyone else getting in, with a huge ticketless crowd left in the street outside.

FUDGE. will soon announce the release and launch night for their third single. Before then, they intend to inject festival season with their own staggering live spectacle. Their songs have an air of menace and exhilaration but there remains a blanket of compassion and unity that hovers over the audience and ensures that none of the good people of Leeds or, as their reputation swells, anywhere else will ever be harmed in the making of this band.
