‘A tacky disco meets a Last-mile wake’…Fighting Caravans is an alternative-rock quintet from Leeds. Taking influences from early American Blues and more contemporary Rock music, the group delivers bold social commentaries akin to sounds of Nick Cave (Grinderman), QOTSA and Radiohead, 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, which was promoted alongside a UK & EU tour, earning strong local and international plaudits. The success, afforded by singles ‘Tyrannosaur’ and ‘Blue Heart Motel’, has provided the opportunity for the band to complete their first ever UK headline tour and will see the outfit feature at Leeds & Reading Festival this year, having already played at Live At Leeds, Liverpool Sound City and Tramlines. The band will start work on the 2nd EP in the fall alongside additional tours of the UK and Europe, in association with Sofar Sounds.
