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 LuvEP (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
2018 has been an 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 Reading & Leeds, Boardmasters, Bestival, Truck, Y Not, The Great Escape and Live At Leeds.
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.
