Mega pleased to confirm one the country’s most exciting young bands will be appearing at The Georgian Theatre on Friday 14th February 2020.
Working Men’s Club hail from the cultural hotbed of Calderwood in West Yorkshire. They have recently just completed a tour supporting Fat White Family are are signed to Heavenly Records, home of another fine West Yorkshire band The Orielles
Working Men’s Club make angular post-punk, influenced by bands like Suicide, Wire and Fall. They grabbed plenty of buzz in 2019 with their debut single, ‘Bad Blood’.
Forcing backs off the wall and deeper onto the dancefloor, follow-up electric stomper ‘Teeth’ possesses enough bite to set pearly whites on edge and induce a wildly ecstatic feeling that’s anything but comfortable.
“It is a metaphor,” teases the band’s singer, guitarist and beat-maker, Sydney Minsky-Sargeant. “It could be about going insane or what you see, what you think you feel inside, a lot of things… put through a drum machine… basically we just want to confuse the fuck out of people, in a good way!”
The last 12 months has seen the band buckle up for a meteoric rise that’s been a hell of a ride; “Signing to Heavenly was a big deal for us,” offers Jake. “We’ve worshipped the label and its bands for a long time so it’s nice to be part of the family. It’s a culture; we’re all running in parallel.”
I recently saw the band live in Newcastle and was blown away. A young up and coming band, full of attitude (in a good way) making fresh exciting live music. You can hear the influences but they make the noise there own.
And they won’t be playing venues this size for much longer. See them up close and intimate whilst you can.
Working Men’s Club play The Georgian Theatre on Friday 14th February 2020. Supports to be confirmed.
