Bloc+ Music: Felix Champion
Ross Balsillie (guitar/vocals), David Rees (guitar/vocals), Andy Brown (drums/vocals), Michael Clark (bass/vocals), Felix Champion originally formed in 2011 as a three-piece outfit. However, after collectively moving to Glasgow, the band recruited their friend David Rees in 2013 completing the final Felix Champion line-up. They quickly made a name for themselves on the Glasgow music scene with their vibrant live performances which led to a support slot with PAWS at Glasgow University’s freshers’ week as well as festival appearances at GoNorth, Wickerman and Tweedfest.
Originally from Fife, Scotland, the Glasgow based four-piece are delighted to be releasing their debut full length record where their own brand of elaborate, yet melodic, alt-rock can be appreciated in its entirety. With moments of technical proficiency combined with vocal harmonies galore and heavy intricate guitar pieces, Felix Champion have created a raw, pulsating, explorative sound.
To support the release of This Lateral Life, Felix Champion will be touring Ireland in early September, followed by a UK tour at the beginning of November, to coincide with the album release, before heading off to Europe in March 2015 and culminating with an official launch of the album taking place at Bar Bloc on 22nd November.
This Lateral Life by Felix Champion is released 24th November 2014 via Bloc+Music.
