As heard on BBC Introducing, Sine FM and Emmerdale, Famous Villains are a five piece rock band from Doncaster.

After touring with the Pigeon Detectives, receiving national airtime on BBC Radio 2 and signing their first record deal it seemed as if everything was about to happen for a few members of Famous Villains. Then suddenly while en route to the US to record their debut with legendary producer Bob Clearmountain, they found themselves stranded at Heathrow airport. With neither money nor jobs to return to, their manager had deserted them amassing a trail of debt in their name. With a tarnished reputation, it seems Famous Villains was an obvious choice of name.

In 2012, surviving band members Anthony Lindley (lead vocal/ rhythm guitar) and Chris Autey (drums) got together with old school friend Neil Smith (lead guitar), classically trained Tobin James (keys) and Jarrad Kirk (bass). Famous Villains have been touring ever since and 2013 has already seen them tour across Northern England and Italy, selling out venues the likes of The Leopard in Doncaster.

Catch them playing their energetic and harmony-laden soulful rock across the country during the coming months!
