Tickets are now available for The View at Rescue Rooms!
The Scottish band The View came together in Dundee, 2005, in their teens. Their sound is energetic, scruffy ska-punk and throwback rock. But they started out as a cover band before then. But in 2007, they heralded their U.S. debut at a concert in New York City.
One year before the American debut, they had signed with 1965 Records. A label distributed by Columbia and run by James Endeacott (The Strokes/The Libertines). They began growing in popularity and the international release of 2007’s Hats Off to the ‘Buskers’ topped the U.K. charts and spawned hit singles “Superstar Tradesman” and “Wasted Little DJ’s.” Their influences are The Clash, Oasis and The Libertines. But their lyrics remained more mysterious, a product of the bands affinity for Scottishisms. A couple of years later, they returned with ‘Bread and Circuses’ produced by Youth. In 2012, they delivered their fourth studio album called ‘Cheeky for a Reason’. The single ‘How Long’ featured on this album. In mid 2013 they released the collection ‘Seven Year Setlist’ – all of the fans’ live favourites.
