BIT MORE INDEPTH INFO.......
Kicking up a huge storm in their hometown Leicester as well as neighbouring midlands cities, The Displacements are a young new band with big ideas and even bigger songs. If you’ve been fortunate enough to witness one of their turbulent live shows you will have seen the throng of kids going suitably mental and usually one or two naked stage divers, It Is the midlands!. The band have caused such a fuss in their home town of Leicester, the charismatic and surprisingly charming young frontman Andy has found himself to be the heart throb to many young lasses, finding it difficult to go about the town unnoticed.
After the success of their debut single Frontline Hearts this summer which sold out within 24 hours of going on sale, The Displacements are about to start their biggest UK tour yet, playing 20 dates back to back, which clocks the total up to 150 live dates this year. Receiving the nod of approval from bands such as The Enemy, Pigeon Detectives and fellow Leicester boys Kasabian, plus boasting an arsenal of huge songs nodding towards classic rock n roll references, this is a band worth getting excited about.
New single Lazy Bones is a firm live favourite and soon-to-be dancefloor anthem. With support from Zane Lowe, Colin Murray, Lamacq and XFM on the last single, great things lie ahead for Lazy Bones.
'Lazy Bones' has been produced by Legendary producer Owen Morris (Oasis, Verve, Ash, View) and Mixed by Barny Barnicott (The Enemy, Kasabian) . B-sides 'Amie' and 'Out Of Your Head' have been produced by hotly tipped up and coming producer Matt Terry
