Beat The Bandit are a 4-piece psych/indie outfit that met on the other side of the world on a year out in New Zealand, busking and gigging for a living, until moving back to England and basing themselves in half of the bands' hometown, Sheffield. Over the past year Beat The Bandit have taken the Sheffield music scene in their stride with dedicated fans, powerful live shows and regular BBC Introducing airplay contributing to their ever growing popularity. Likened to ‘The Coral’, ‘The Kinks’, ‘The Beatles’ to ‘The Beach Boys’, Beat The Bandit lash out raw rock & roll riffs and psychedelic dreaminess in equal measure.
