This is a true band of the people, highlighting social injustice and oozing with raw honesty. Having a clear goal in their lyrics, MassMatiks‘ universal appeal lends itself to not just one band of fans, making them accessible to all. The heart of this quartet is undeniably the song writing, with lead singer George Peploe finding inspiration in the everyday trials of life, from false hard-nuts to ex-lovers. The brutality of life and the energetic nature of the songs equates to a band full of potential and brimming with ideas.
MassMatiks played over 60 shows in 2016, which included a 20-date sold out UK tour supporting Don Broco. In addition to this, the band sold over 800 tickets to their own headline tour, and successfully sold out a further two headline shows at The Garage and Camden Assembly (both London) – to round off what was a great year for the upcoming London predators. Their incendiary live shows have grown in numbers and drawn fans from across Europe to travel to their gigs. Following on from their latest single ‘Blank Wall,’ MassMatiks are set to break down barriers of what it takes to be a rock band in 2017.
“The energy and aggression they bring to their live show is second to none” – Rob Damiani, Don Broco
“They have a swagger and a substance that is missing from alot of new bands” – Louder Than War
MassMatiks play The Flapper Birmingham on Wed 20th September 2017, with support from Youth Killed It. Tickets available here.
