Furies are a band of four angry men from Leicester. Now approaching their 4th year, they are a band that plays angry, emotive, and original music mixing their love of indie, rock, metal, grunge and punk.
Their debut CD was described as a ''tightly executed set of highly passionate songs that has got it all: exhilarating guitar riffs, a mountain of feverish drumming and commanding vocals. It's all about the high octane rock sounds that the Furies master so well'' (Arts In Leicestershire).
The Furies tour dates
A unique 10-piece whose eclectic style includes Rock, Ska, Reggae, Punk, Celtic, and Balkan genres - not ones to be pigeonholed!
Known for energetic and mildly chaotic live shows, they've had the thumbs-up from Michael Eavis to Bez!
Acclaimed Glastonbury (headlining Avalon Cafe stage), Isle of Wight, Guilfest main stage, Italian and Icelandic shows brought them to the fore.
"Along with UB40 best music of the day."
"Industrially tight with barrels of entertainment."
"More like a party than a gig."
