The fast-rising alt-rock trio, whose current single ‘L’Etat C’Est Moi’ has been playlisted at 6Music, played sold-out shows in London and Manchester last week.

Now based in Manchester, The Blinders have been picking up specialist radio support since their first DIY releases from the likes of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Daniel P Carter, Radio X’s John Kennedy, and 6Music’s Chris Hawkins and Steve Lamacq, who recently had the band on his show for a BBC Music Introducing Session.

After a series of support tours and 2017 Festival appearances including Reading & Leeds, Isle Of Wight, and TRMSMT, The Blinders undertook their debut headline tour in February.

Earlier this month they supported Cabbage (who called them the “best band in the country right now”) at their all-day festival at Manchester’s Ritz, and drew a huge crowd at the Neighbourhood Weekender festival.

They play Kendal Calling festival on July 28th, with more UK Festival appearances to be announced shortly.
