22:30 | Vigilantes

Championed by BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens & Phil Taggart, Vigilantes have had continued airplay on BBC Radio 1, Radio 6 & the R1 Specialist Show throughout 2018. Vigilantes are continuing the British tradition of taking American sounds and stuffing it with classic British tone and have been placed on Radio 1's Best Of BBC Introducing playlist and had repeat airtime on Amazing Radio & Radio X. Noted by Fresh on the Net’s Tom Robinson as ‘On a mission’, Vigilantes are known as one of the hardest working live bands in the UK circuit. By putting every fragment of energy into live performance, Vigilantes have deservedly shared stages with the likes of Circa Waves, The Sherlocks, Fickle Friends eventually being chosen by BBC Introducing to play Latitude 2018.

"American influences with British hearts" - Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1

"The power and tightness of the playing. Vigilantes will blow your socks off live" - Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6, Fresh On The Net
