Widely tipped to make a substantial breakthrough this year, East London quartet The Bohicas can now announce a UK tour that includes a London headline show at Oslo.

The tour builds upon the interest that was provoked by last year’s tracks XXX’ and ‘Swarm’, two kraut-engined, lazer-guided garage rock missiles which introduced the band as a formidable new force of both brain and brawn. With next single ‘To Die For’ (set to impact on March 2nd), The Bohicas have really come into full bloom, following their great melodic instincts the band lock into the capital h-hooks and killer riffs that'll see them spending a lot of time on your radio this summer.

Fresh from their recent ‘Swarm In Essexxx’ tour dates (check out exclusive tour footage shot by Libby Burke Wilde HERE) and in addition to the headline dates listed below, The Bohicas will also support Royal Blood at their intimate Brits Week 2015 show at London’s Koko on February 17th, as well as Drenge at the Dome in Tufnell Park on February 12th as part of this year’s NME Awards shows:


12th – London, The Dome, Tufnell Park (supporting Drenge)

20th – London, Tooting Tram and Social



21st – Cambridge, Portland Arms

22nd – Nottingham, Bodega

26th – Sheffield, The Harley

27th – Glasgow, King Tuts

28th – Newcastle, Cluny

Frontman Dominic McGuinness isn’t big on labelling their approach within the confines of genre. You know when you go to see a great film at the cinema and come out of it feeling like you're the lead character, walking down the street like the Fonz or De Niro?” he questions. “I want people listening to our band to feel like that"


“People ask what sort of music we make, but if I say rock ‘n’ roll they instantly think of the fifties,” adds guitarist Dominic John. It’s the same starting point in terms of the energy behind it, but it’s not referential and it’s really not about looking back. It’s seeing that danger and energy, but taking it somewhere else.
