“Epic yet soulful performances.” Sunday Times
“The ever-amazing live act Fat Freddy’s Drop” Clash Music
“They really are a band to experience firsthand.” Resident Advisor
With a triumphant 2013 nearly under their belts Fat Freddy’s Drop have announced their biggest ever headline show at Ally Pally on Saturday 18th October, 2014. Tickets will be available from the band’s website on 11th December before going out on general sale on 13th December.
The New Zealand band hit new heights this year with the release of their third LP ‘Blackbird’. The truest reflection of the band’s musical philosophy to date, ‘Blackbird’ brought together the band’s sprawling influences, from disco to soul, house to electronic funk.
The band marked the release at a sold out Village Underground in June and celebrated their highest ever UK chart position. This was followed by another sold-out run across the UK in October finishing up at Brixton Academy.
“After being together for 14 years, it feels like we’re just getting going.” says DJ Fitchie. “The band is loving the bigger stages and the opportunity to explore more impressive production.”
