Strangers is part of a transition into a new era as a band. We’ve talked a lot about how we shouldn’t let genre define us and this song is the statement of intent. We hope you’ve come by now to expect the unexpected from us.

We put our heads together with producer Alex Newport and what we got was this lil number, which we’re very excited to share. We hope that you can take this for what it is, a sign of things to come, a genre-less future where artists and their fans appreciate music for what it is, and that’s just music man

Fizzy Blood – ‘Strangers’ (Official Lyric Video)
Strangers follows previous title tracked single Pink Magic, which landed on the BBC Radio 1playlist, and CFO. Both garnered support from the likes of DIY, Kerrang! Magazine & Radio, Wonderland, Amazing Radio, Planet Rock Radio, Alternative Press and Fred Perry Subculture.

Recorded in Brighton with producer Alex Newport (Bloc Party, Tigercub, The Mars Volta), the Pink Magic EP captures Fizzy Blood‘s as a multifaceted and self-assured force, testament to their rapid growth in the UK DIY scene. It follows 2015’s Feast EP, and last year’s Summer Of Luv EP (KKKK – Kerrang!).

“It’s taken us a few years to figure out who we are as a band, as musicians and as people, and this is the happiest we’ve ever been with our music. In the UK music scene it’s easy to get boxed in, we’ve managed to tour with the likes of While She Sleeps and then go straight on to hit the road with Spring King, very different crowds and very different music, however, all this has taught us is that we’re not a metal band and we’re not an indie band, we want to be the band that excites all listeners of music and more”
– Paul Howells
To mark the EP release, Fizzy Blood will play two UK headline shows in September. Support comes from The Golden Age Of TV and Household Dogs in Leeds, and Kid Kapichi and Inklings in London.
These are going to be our last headline shows of the year before we climb back into our hole and work on something special for you lot. We’ll be playing some shiny new songs and dusting off some of the old ones so come on down and wave us off alongside some other great bands that we’re excited to have on the bill

21st Sep – Boston Music Room, London
Live is certainly home for Fizzy Blood. Drummer Jake Greenway and bassist Ciaran Scanlon are a powerhouse, even down to their facial expressions, effortlessly switching from a full throttled, ear shattering sonic backbone to an infectious, groove-ridden pulse. Vocalist Benji Inkley oozes charm with his Josh Homme-inspired croons, and his counterparts Tim Malkin (keys & guitars) and Paul Howells (guitars) showcase incredible attention to detail in their blistering musicianship. This is just a glimpse into the many reasons why Fizzy Blood have catapulted to the forefront of British DIY rock. Last year saw tours alongside While She Sleeps, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Arcane Roots, alongside Download, 2000 Trees and Reading & Leeds festivals.

2018 has been an equally busy year for Fizzy Blood so far, kickstarting with a UK tour supporting Spring King in January, followed by a debut headline tour in February – which included a sold out show in Leeds. Other recent live highlights include Live At Leeds, The Great Escape, Truck, Y Not and Bestival.

Fizzy Blood are showing no sign of slowing down, gearing up for Boardmasters and Reading & Leeds festivals ahead of September’s headline shows.

Pink Magic encompasses the blood and sweat that Fizzy Blood have put in since their inception in 2014, but most importantly it captures an overwhelming determination and ability to evolve. Their next move is anybody’s guess, but rest assured it’ll be brilliant.
