Bob Vylan

Having been a band for around 4 years, the BOB VYLAN sound is ever evolving and crosses genres and sonic dimensions. They incorporate these multiple  styles in their music in an attempt to bridge genres and subcultures together.  Their unique style has found them embraced by rock crowds and rap crowds alike  and their independent nature has seen them start their own record label by the  name of Ghost Theatre to release their music free from the restraints of major  label politics, a route that led them to number 18 on the UK album charts, 4 in  the physical charts and number 3 on the independent charts, with their most  recent album ‘Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life’. The first time in history that an album entirely produced, recorded and mixed by the band and released on theband’s own label has reached the top 20. This album won the Kerrang! ‘Best Album’ award for 2022, saw them nominated for their first MOBO award and helped them grace magazine covers with Kerrang!, Hardbeat and Gigwise.

Speaking on their latest album, vocalist Bob explains a bit more about the album, it’s  themes and ideas for this next phase for BOB VYLAN, „This project has allowed us  the space to showcase diferent sides of our personalities. We don’t want to give  the same thing over and over again, so we’re tackling topics in a diferent way this  time. It’s serious and funny, it’s communal and obnoxious, it’s many things at any  given time, and it’s a concept project. It explores the idea of paying your way  through life and the expense of living in a society that places money above all  else. It explores the places we’ve come from and the extremes we’ve seen people  go to in order to survive. It also looks at the nuances around money in our  society, the less obvious connections, like the world of advertising and art having  to align with advertisers values in order to be given a platform, as well as the  price of healthy eating, the cost of technology not necessarily on our pockets but  on our lives.“  This band are all about community, and for them, their live show is a place where  they can really express that. At each show, they start off with mediation, and end with a group hug, but what’s between the meditative start and embracing end is a message delivered in a way that both Bobby and Bobbie feel has been missing. 

Live show wise, last year saw their UK headline tour in the summer of  2021 sell out and they went on to play at Reading and Leeds and ALT LDN  festivals, be the main support to Bify Cylro through October/November and supported The Offspring in arenas across the UK. In 2022 the band embarked on another sold out UK headline tour through May, following on from their sold out Ireland tour earlier the year. They have also toured both the UK and the USA with Amyl & The Sniffers, played their first ever headline US dates, and festival season saw them playing Glastonbury, Full force, 2000trees, Jera on Air, Rebellion Festival, Boomtown, Pukkelpop and Riot Fest in the USA as well as many more. They end the year with a (very) sold out headline show at The Electric Ballroom in December, and a huge new single ‘The Delicate Nature’ featuring Laurie from Slaves, that has already been talked about by the likes of Rolling Stone, NME, DIY, Kerrang! And more, and seen radio support with Clara Amfo, Nels Hylton, the R1 Rock Show, Jack Saunders and Alyx Holcombe (as her BBC Introducing Track Of The Week), as well as John Kennedy at Radio X, Kerrang! Radio playlist and 6music shows Craig Charles, Steve Lamaq, The Round Table, Tom Robinson, Iggy Pop and more.
