Fighting Caravans Short Info

‘A tacky disco meets a Last-mile wake’…Fighting Caravans is an alternative-rock sextet from Leeds. Taking influences from early American Blues and more contemporary Rock music, the group delivers bold social commentaries akin to sounds of Fat White Family, Grinderman and QOTSA, with subtle Country, Jazz and Psychedelic overtones. The vintage guitars lend to an aching exposition of lyrical variety; from the final confessional moments of a felo-de-se to narcotic anthropomorphism, Fighting Caravans have a burden only alleviated via public execution…

In 2015, Fighting Caravans released their debut EP, Beasts Of England, alongside a UK & EU tour, earning strong local and international plaudits. In 2016 the success of singles Tyrannosaur and Blue Heart Motel, provided the opportunity for the band to complete their first ever UK & EU headline tours and feature at a number of festivals, including; Reading & Leeds Festival, Live At Leeds, Liverpool Sound City and Tramlines. The band are currently recording their 2nd EP at The Nave (Kaiser Chiefs, Eagulls, etc.), from which the first single will be released by Clue Records in January.

FC is: Daniel Clark (Lead Vocals), Riff James (Guitar), Cinnamon Lees (Bass), Ali Fletcher (Guitar), Dave ‘The Sesh’ Hogan (Drums) and Danny Marlando (Keys).
