Gravesend, England, GBR


LightsGoBlue are a two man electronic-pop-punk-rock band hailing from Gravesend, Kent in the United Kingdom.

Since forming in 2008, the band have divided their time between building their live following and perfecting their home recording techniques and remix skills.

Throughout 2009/2010 LightsGoBlue have toured the UK as main support on tours with Enter Shikari, Hadouken, Canterbury and Feeder side-project Renegades, as well as appearing at UK festivals such as The Great Escape, Sonishphere, Redfest and Hevy. Mixed in alongside all this high profile live work is the grimly inevitable trudging around the less glamorous 'toilet' venues of the UK, so important in observing the old fashioned rituals of 'paying dues' and 'honing skills'.
In 2009 the band were invited to perform at 'Stage Dive Day Out Festival' in Sweden… and were subsequently invited back this year to play a higher slot at the renamed 'Moshpit Open Festival'.
At time of typing this, the band are preparing for an appearance at the Incubate Festival in Holland and a mammoth six week tour of the USA & Canada opening for Enter Shikari.
In light of the word of stateside dates spreading, US labels, agents and lawyers have started contacting the band and management for guestlist to shows… which is hopefully a positive sign that buzz across the pond is growing!

Although never having 'official' had a release up until now, early LightsGoBlue demos have been played regularly on BBC Introducing / Kerrang Radio. etc, and the band have had a toe dipped into the world of major label releases when the LightsGoBlue's remix of Enter Shikari's 'No Sleep Tonight' was included on CD / digital release of the single and subsequently on the on 2010 'Tribalism' mini-album on Atlantic / Warners, alongside remixes by High Contrast, Qemists and Nero.
LightsGoBlue have also flexed their remix muscles reworking tracks for artists such as Canterbury (their remix of ‘Friends? More Like A Gang’ was included on CD boxset release of debut album ‘Thank You’) and The Joy Formidable (LGB have contributed a remix to forthcoming single 'I Don't Want To See You Like This').

LightsGoBlue’s release their debut proper E.P / mini-album (it contains six tracks. YOU decide what you want to call it) ‘This Is Spectrum’ in late September 2010. All tracks were written, recorded, produced, scrapped, re-written and hammered into shape by LightsGoBlue in their bedroom studio in Kent.
