    Leeds psych-rockers Leeds smash out of the blocks with their hotly anticipated debut album, an LP of huge tunes, cacophonous riffs and thundering vocals that finally captures their blistering live show. A testament to DIY music, WEIRDS are a fully immersive, musical experience. Hailing from Leeds, relentless touring and rehearsing in previous bands fuelled the volcanic foundation to hatch their own breed of neo-psych grunge. This soundscape, combined with their kaleidoscopic aesthetic, hand printed zines and regular DJ stints on the Leeds circuit has placed Weirds at the forefront of the West Yorkshire music scene. Kickstarting a new chapter, Weirds release Swarmculture, summoning you to a hallucinogenic dystopia. With unrelenting, full-throttle live shows at their core, Weirds boast an impressive set of notches on their collective touring post including Download, Tramlines, Handmande and Beacons festivals to name a few.
