The Ruling Class

 London, England, GBR


The Ruling Class have stealthily made themselves one of the most talked about bands on the underground scene in the UK. With the release of two singles, debut ‘Flowers’ and follow up ‘Marian Shrine’, their psychedelic tinged 60’s influenced pop has seen a diverse fan base from the uber cool East London scenesters to hardcore football fans flocking to their banner. Support dates with the likes of The Charlatans, Glasvegas and The Drums have emphasized the enormous potential for their music, whilst headline shows across the UK and Europe have seen the band create unique environments for their shows that encapsulate the ethic that drives these five diverse characters.

With praise from the UK media ringing in their ears, NME praising ‘something very special indeed’ whilst The Fly suggested ‘The Ruling Class dominion looks set to grow’, it is little wonder that the band’s appearances at the Reading and Leeds Festivals saw them singled out by NME as one of the best new bands at the festival.

The Ruling Class then decided to create their own club night, a place where they along with their favourite bands could play an undiluted show and give the fans a real sense of occasion. In keeping with their name they chose to call it ‘The High Society’ and its success has been instant, giving them enough money to record their debut album. Enter producer Ed Buller of Suede, Pulp and more recently White Lies fame. It was thought with his past roster and a real enthusiasm to work with the band, he would be perfect.

As we speak The Ruling Class are in Belgium at ICP studios recording the debut long player, ready for the next chapter.
