RUSSO – UK Support Tours – Open Introducing Stage Reading + Leeds

Following the release of their superb 7 track EP ‘House With A Pool’ Californian four-piece RUSSO has announced a string of UK shows including at the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading + Leeds festival

Following the release of their superb 7 track EP ‘House With A Pool’ Californian four-piece RUSSO has announced a string of UK shows including at the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading + Leeds festival and support dates for indie rock royalty Gomez and rising UK band Black Honey.

RUSSO are on the fast track to becoming one of the most exciting bands to emerge in 2018. Their sound, a refreshing blend of ska-pop and rock, coupled with their sweat-infused, high-energy live performances, is quickly compared by critics to the likes of No Doubt, Garbage and Blondie, with Clash saying their ‘songwriting bristles with energy and a palpable emotional connection’.

‘House With A Pool’ is an electrically-charged 7-track collection which reverberates with a certain energy; an underlying rebelliousness that seamlessly carries from one song to the next. Formed in Los Angeles in 2018, RUSSO consists of singer/songwriter Cailin Russo on lead vocals, Tyler McCarthy on guitar, Hayley Brownell on drums and backing vocals and Sean Ritchie on bass. Upcoming live dates below.
