Mr Bruce Announces Leeds Date

MR BRUCE breaks into 2022 with the highly-charged new single: Volatile Times.

It arrives as the fourth and final single release to be cut from Mr Bruce’s debut EP, RACE TO NOWHERE [PART ONE] – out now on Deep Blue Records.

Sharing DNA with contemporaries the likes of Disclosure, Jamie XX or Lone, Volatile Times is a 2-Step garage track at its heart, with euphoria-inducing basslines, rapid-fire wordplay and funky rhythms that all take cues from that pivotal UK subgenre and its early pioneers.

A love song about the complexity of being a parent in a time of political, technological and environmental uncertainty, the song was written for Mr Bruce’s young daughter; his guiding light in a world which he increasingly feels is in a state of emergency.

As Mr Bruce says:
I feel so much anxiety for her future that her and her generation are going to inherit, and yet she is the one person who makes me feel less anxious because she’s so joyful. It’s a paradox.

Following this single release, Mr Bruce’s highly anticipated follow-up record, RACE TO NOWHERE [PART 2] is expected later this year. Standby for further details on that  in the months to come. With 2022 shaping-up to be a benchmark year for Mr Bruce, he is to embark on his debut UK solo tour this spring. Starting in March with a SOLD OUT show at London’s The Lexington, he will also perform at the Hyde Park Book Club in Leeds on March 30th 2022.
