Biography

Sick City Club are a testament to a "can do" attitude. Four relative strangers who formed a band, they can now rightly claim to be one of the biggest bands on the Birmingham music scene. In their short life, they have shared the stage with bands and acts as established and diverse Little Man Tate, The Futureheads, The Twang, Taio Cruz, Chipmunk, Zane Lowe, Kano, Wiley, Underground Heroes, Robots in Disguise, The Troubadours and Young Heart Attack, gaining praise from everyone who shares in the energy of their live shows. Radio 1 have been playing the band regularly for 6 months, with Nick Grimshaw and Steve Lemacq particular champions of the band.

They recorded the four tracks on this page with renowned producer Gavin Monaghan, who has previously sprinkled his magic touch on bands such as Editors, The Twang, Kings Of Leon, and of course the legendary Robert Plant. The album is out through their own label on the 5th July, and first single, Embarrassing Monday, is out now.

A limited edition promo release of the track Sign Of The Times garnered airplay from stations such as Kerrang! BBC Nan Gaidhael, BBC Radio WM, BBC Nottingham, and local stations up and down the country, as well as many favourable reviews, as seen below. Such was the response to the track that BBC Radio WM Introducing had the band in for a session only a few weeks after recieving it.

The band were also chosen as house band on BBC Radio 1 in July, which garnered them new fans, a song play and an interview on the immensely popular Sunday evening BBC Switch programme.

Having had several songs touted as "potential hit records" by many corners of the music industry, Sick City Club aim to consolidate their current success and build on it as they try to move up the ladder that is the music industry.
