It is with shear delight that Brooklynites Bambara will descend on Leeds this October as they embark on their headline UK and European tour, fresh off the back of an insane US tour with IDLES. Dubbed "one of the best bands we’ve seen in fucking ages” by non other than the IDLES frontman Joe Talbot himself, we are undoubtedly in for an absolute treat.

Following the release of their third LP, "Shadow on Everything", the album represents a decisive step forward for the NYC-via-Georgia trio. Frontman Reid Bateh, drummer Blaze Bateh, and bassist William Brookshire have always been adept students of noise rock and post-punk, mining the work of bands like Swans and The Birthday Party to construct what NPR called their "beautifully dynamic nightmares." Now, they've transcended their early influences to produce a Western Gothic concept album that sounds as big as the desert sky looming over its characters' lives.

Bambara's pummelling and unpredictable live set has made them one of New York City's most sought after acts - having impressed noise-pop auteur Angus Andrew to the extent that he asked Reid and Blaze to join Liars as members on 2017's worldwide tour. Additionally, Bambara has toured the US and Europe extensively alongside the likes of Liars, Metz, Girl Band, APTBS, Algiers and more.
