Cleopatrick: Bummer Tour Dates 2021 - 202 Dates, Calendar, Events & Parties
Following the release of their gargantuan debut album ‘BUMMER’, which received praise across the board from The Guardian, Independent, MTV UK, DIY, Kerrang, Rock Sound, Dork and Upset – Canadian duo cleopatrick have announced extensive European tour dates for 2022 – including their biggest headline show to date at London’s Electric Ballroom. Tickets for all shows go onsale this Friday, August 27th at 10am local time.
The shows will follow the band’s forthcoming completely sold-out November headline UK tour, that will see them play across Royal Tunbridge Wells, London, Birmingham and Nottingham. Support comes from Brighton grunge rockers Sick Joy.
In anticipation for these shows cleopatrick have run a series of uncompromising live sessions of tracks from the album on their YouTube channel, titled ‘LIVE FROM THE BASEMENT’ – watch here.
Released earlier this year via their own label Nowhere Special Recordings, ‘BUMMER’ was lauded for its transgressive take on guitar music, with DIY Magazine commenting “Blending together their love for guitars and hip hop, the pair seem to have hit on an intoxicating formula that showcases the power those genres can possess when united…no one in rock right now sounds like Luke Gruntz”. CLASH’s 8/10 review stated “‘BUMMER’ is a record made to be played hard and loud, heard blaring out of car windows and making cavalcades in faceless crowds”, with Kerrang noting “Absolutely titanic riffs…cleopatrick’s obvious love of deafening rock and roll deserves praise”. ‘BUMMER’ will be available on vinyl on 16th October.
The band garnered further high-profile fans including The Guardian, Independent, MTV UK, DIY, Rock Sound, Dork and Upset, as well as being chosen as BBC Radio 1’s first ever Future Artist, alongside regular support from indie tastemakers Annie Mac, Jack Saunders and Dan P Carter.
Since their inception, cleopatrick have proved themselves to be one of the most in-demand rising rock bands on the planet. They were the only band picked for Amazon Music UK’s Ones To Watch 2021, and have amassed over 100 million streams alongside multiple sell-out tours across Europe which included an immediately sold-out underplay at London’s Electrowerkz and several shows (including London’s Alexandra Palace) supporting Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes in 2020.
Comprised of best friends since the age of four Luke Gruntz (guitar/vocals) and Ian Fraser (drums), cleopatrick’s debut album ‘BUMMER’ saw the duo harness all the magic they’ve been brewing over their two-decade friendship and funnel it into a record that aims to reinvigorate the rock landscape from the ground up in every sense. Taking the ethos of their New Rock Mafia collective – a group of friends and fellow bands, united in making a more inclusive, equality-driven space in rock music – and imbuing it with the sonic ambition and ferocity of a record designed to be played hard and loud, ‘BUMMER’ is an album made to mean something.
