Statement from Pretty Vicious:
“It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that due to ongoing personal health issues Brad will not be able to tour with the band for the foreseeable future. This means we sadly have to cancel shows next week including Camden Rocks Festival on June 1st.
We are currently looking for a replacement singer to carry out touring duties planned for later this year when the album is being released. It's a really tough situation for all of us but the record will be here before you know it, and thanks to everyone who has stuck by us through everything. PV x”
This four-piece rock band, hailing from Merthyr Tydfil, Wales, made raw, punk-infused, energetic rock & roll. Made up of vocalist/guitarist Brad Griffiths, guitarist Tom McCarthy, bass guitarist Jarvis Morgan, and drummer Elliot Jones, the group uploaded the track “Cave Song” to SoundCloud and BBC Introducing in 2014, generating attention from BBC Radio Wales and XFM. The band followed up with the digital single “It’s Always There,” eventually capturing the attention of Radio 1, who tagged it their Hottest Track in the World. The release was also pressed as a limited-edition 7” for Record Store Day 2015. Opting for the standard, old-school machine of two guitars, a bass, and a drum kit, the band drew comparisons to other British acts such as Kasabian, Royal Blood, Oasis, and the Arctic Monkeys.
