The Illicits are the third signing to Alan McGee’s new label, Creation23. Their new single ‘In What World’ is set for release 7th May 2019.
Forming in 2017, the Blackburn quartet consists of George Richards (vocals), Brad Hayes (lead guitar), Joe Mitchell (bass) and Matt Cottam (drums). Already receiving widespread attention, their music reflects their Blackburn roots; the gritty sound of the post-industrial north, blended with melodic guitars and the stark honesty of punk rock. Recently, the band sold-out the 200 capacity Electric Church in their hometown, with a performance that has since earned them a reputation for furious live sets.
Following their March/April tour supporting The Zutons, The Illicits announce The Grand, Ciltheroe, Fri 31 May for their biggest headline show to date.
