Band play Reading and Leeds Festival this weekend, and then Alt LDN Festival Monday 30th August in London
They have also just completed a sold out UK headline tour with support from Witch Fever and Zand
London grime punks BOB VYLAN have released brand new video and single ‘Pretty Songs.’ Speaking about the new song the band said ‘We’ve never been a band that’s shy to talk about the world as we see it. We could write songs that aren’t so direct, we could write songs that don’t make some people feel uncomfortable but that’s not what we’re here to do and that’s why we wrote Pretty Songs. The song really speaks for itself but it touches on direct action and is kind of a tongue in cheek critique on the new wave of “activists” and “allys” (including those in bands) we’ve seen grow over the past year or so, particularly those advocating for non-violence and passive resistance.’

The band produced and mixed the single on their own independent label Ghost Theatre. Speaking about the label the band said ‘Ghost Theatre is a 100% independent label. We have plans of building it into more than a label but a community focused initiative to help alternative artists take control of their music in a fair and empowering way. We are the first artists on the label and will use ourselves to prove the power of independence, which is what we’re doing with a sold out tour and Independently funded releases on par with that of machine backed releases.’
