Peanut Butter Lovesicle, the New York based psych-rock trio, are set to kick off a two week run in the UK this February. Before crossing the pond, they will be playing one show in NYC on February 6th at Leftfield.
The upcoming headlining tour of the UK has been preceded by a flurry of love and exciting placements for the trio. The band’s drummer, Timmy Miller, was recently featured in a Geico commercial exclusive to MTV (view here: http://vimeo.com/56577901#) while tastemakers have been continually praising the band’s music. Both Interview Magazine and Earmilk had effusive compliments for the band as well as a feature on IFC for their song “Complex” off their latest EP Dirty Pride (view it here: http://www.ifc.com/fix/2012/11/download-peanut-butter-lovesicle-complex).
The band released their debut EP Dirty Pride late in 2012 which was produced by Henry Hirsch (responsible for #1 hits for artists Lenny Kravitz and Madonna). Not only have tastemakers flocked to the band, but also an elite fan following which includes Ed Westwick (of Gossip Girl) and Julie Henderson (of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue) – both of which were featured in the band’s music video for “Black Eyed Blues”
Now the band will join the ranks of Nas, Mark Ronson and many other hugely successful acts when they headline the venerable Notting Hill Arts Club, which is known for breaking artists of all genres. Catch them live in the US or UK this winter, confirmed tour dates below.
