After recently winning the prestigious Mercury Prize, Young Fathers have announced that they’ll be heading out on an extensive UK tour in May and June, which includes a stop at Newcastle’s Riverside on 21st May 2015.

Their recent album Dead has been described as one of the most compelling British – not to mention Scottish – hip-hop records in recent memory, a melting pot of cultures that has resulted in their brand of psych-pop rap, which they describe as “tectonic plates of genres rubbing up against each other like under-sea dirty party people.” Influenced by everyone from Massive Attack to TV On The Radio, the trio have had a massive year in 2014 which has seen them break further into the mainstream and gather a legion of fans.

Young Fathers play at Newcastle’s Riverside on 21st May 2015. Tickets are available now and can be purchased via the band’s official website.
