The Vuromantics or ‘The Vu’ as otherwise known, from Sheffield, are not only about to embark on a tour this Autumn with Smokey Brights, but have just finished recording an EP.
The band spoke with The Fountain about when they are next performing in Scotland as well as what we can expect from the new EP.
TF: You are just about to embark on another tour, supporting Smokey Brights, you must be stoked about that?
Absolutely! They are a killer band from the states, we’re going to have to bring our A-game as they have a sensational catalog of songs. We’ve been locked away this week working on our set and cannot wait to hit the road with these guys. It’s super exciting to be opening for them, we’ve done a lot of shows over the last year and I’d say it always feels special to be invited to open for another act who are making waves on the circuit. It’s like a little stamp of approval, We’re totally stoked for it.
TF: And can we expect an EP or LP in the near future, are you working towards that at the moment?
We’ve actually just recorded a brand new EP and we’re currently figuring out the best way to put it out there, working on the aesthetic, videos etc . We had so much fun with the recording process and we’re very proud of the songs. Easily our best work to date and we managed to get alot of ideas across and really pushed ourselves musically, it’s going to be really interesting to see the reaction to the release.
TF: Can we expect to see you in Scotland anytime soon?
We absolutely love planing in Scotland, we’ve been up a few times playing places like Bannermans, 13th Note, most recently Sneaky Pete’s. This might be a good time to proclaim my undying love for Edinburgh, it’s totally stole my heart on our last two visits. We’ve just penned a return to Sneaky Pete’s for March 2019. What a great venue by the way, venues like this are so important, offering a platform for the nations up and comers. They run a mean clubnight too. Can’t wait to return.
TF: And what was it like touring with Shalamar?
We’ve actually only done the one show with Shalamar but what a show it was. Huddersfield Town Hall, it’s a absolutely colossal venue. Giant ceilings, old architecture, four stories of seated guests, it was madness. The band themselves we’re lovely and have been really supportive on social media as well. We hope to play with them again soon.
TF: What has been your favourite gig to date, do you have one?
Personally I absolutely love playing our wild headline shows, we’ve been doing really well in places like Manchester, London and Bristol. We’ve got some coming up to see the year out in style which we are very excited about. Shalamar was certainly up there. Another one that springs to mind was supporting Alabama 3 at Holmfirth Picturedrome, another stunning venue and a wicked live band. We just love playing so it’s kinda hard to say a specific show, all of them maybe? is that an answer? haha
