“The most thrilling live band in the UK” - Q
“Feverishly intense, raw and compelling” - The Independent
“The Strypes are too good to be ignored” - NME
“A bowel-shaking rhythm’n’blues explosion delivered with humour and
vim” - The Observer
Just under a year after they emerged with their first release - ‘Young,
Gifted & Blue’, a set of vintage R’n’B covers - The Strypes continued their phenomenal rise with the release of their debut full-length
album - ‘Snapshot’ on September 6th last year.
Few bands have rocketed in 2013 as The Strypes have. Entering the
year on the back of praise for ‘Young, Gifted & Blue’ and swelling
excitement surrounding their astonishingly explosive live shows, The
Strypes released their major label debut single - ‘Blue Collar Jane’ - in
April, shortly before playing a show at the legendary 100 Club in London,
tickets for which sold out within the space of an hour.
They’ve since continued to tour extensively, including a set on the BBC
Introducing stage at Glastonbury that saw the tent completely packed
out. The Strypes will extend their reach even further this winter when
they embark on a stadium tour of the UK and Europe with the Arctic
Monkeys, taking in some of the continent’s premiere venues.
‘Snapshot’ - an electrifying collage of The Strypes’ own material and
some of the much-loved throwback covers that pepper their live sets is out now On Virgin EMI
