One of the most exciting bands to emerge from Leeds since the Kaisers last cast all eyes on Yorkshire over a decade ago – the rising four-piece will support the indie supremos at a unique series of shows hosted by the Forestry Commission.
Looking to bring a healthy dose of their sunshine soaked soul-pop to proceedings each day, VITAMIN will be heading off the beaten track and to a neck of the woods near you with an appearances at Dalby Forest in Pickering on 26th June.
With Brit Awards, multi-platinum album sales and a stack of hits including “I Predict A Riot”, “Ruby” and many more, Ricky Wilson and co.’s nose for pop potential would be hard to dispute.
With just two EPs and a handful of singles to their name including ‘This Isn’t Love’ and irresistible current single ‘Waterfall’, VITAMIN’s effervescent indie pop took no time in catching the attention of the Kaisers, who have hand-picked the newcomers to join them especially for this special run of shows.
Speaking about the shows, VITAMIN frontman Jared Saville said:
“I’ve forever fantasised about playing shows of this size since I first picked up a mic, also the fact we’ll be playing a forest only adds to the excitement. I honestly can’t wait for these gigs and we’re so grateful to the Kaiser Chiefs for picking us to play with them.”
The Forest Live announcement follows seamlessly on from support slots on tour with Clean Cut Kid and Magic Gang, plus a host of festival appearances at Stockton Calling Festival, Live At Leeds, Handmade Festival and The Great Escape Festival.
The band have also recently unveiled their recent single ‘Waterfall’, which you can listen to here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7rGP9aoGSY
