Mojo Fury - Debut single + UK tour with Oceansize
Having been locked away honing their musical craft in the farmhouses of Belfast, Mojo Fury are finally ready to unleash their brand of weird and wonderful alt-rock on planet earth.
Début single "The Mann" is a dynamic slab of math-tinted rock, fusing early Biffy Clyro, with all the edge and energy of Future of the Left thrown in with the DIY sensibility of Adebisi Shank.
"The Mann" (released on 4th October) is the biggest hint yet that their début album, set for release in early 2011, will turn heads and aptivate listeners. Their live shows are a mix of off intense limb flailing akin to Pulled Apart By Horses whilst hard hitting, captivating and ferocious like Queens of the Stone Age.
Live shows have, until now, been a rarity and something to be treasured - only gracing the stage in their native Northern Ireland on DIY shows and larger venues with the likes of Biffy Clyro and Forward Russia. In May this year they ventured over the Irish Sea where they became one of the highlights of the Live at Leeds festival alongside The Bronx, Wild Beasts, Twilight Sad and Rolo Tomassi. It was a clear demonstration as to why they are one of the most explosive live bands in the UK right now, and persuaded former Million Dead and current Opeth manager Andy Farrow to return to his punkier roots and take Mojo Fury on for management.
They are now readying themselves for a string of UK dates in September and October firstly supporting the mighty Oceansize and then with the hotly tipped Leeds noise trio Castrovalva in October.
