happened to the days when kids in bands were plain old slackers? Brighton-based The Wytches are proof those days are long gone. Not only do the three piece make kick arse music but their line-up includes a semi-professional poker playing drummer, a science-fiction novel writing bassist and a vocalist who also is also a whiz on the guitar and organ.

Besides all that, their brand of what they call ‘surf doom’ has been gaining plenty of fans. They were chosen as The Guardian’s ‘New Band of the Day’ earlier in the year and have been touring with Future of the Left. And after a sold out headline show at The Black Heart in Camden, the dudes are embarking on a UK tour in February.

Featuring a date at Scala in which they will be teaming up once again with super talented fellows Drenge, tickets are on sale now so get in quick sticks.
