It s been a long time between drinks for West Yorkshire’s very own Marmozets signed to Roadrunner Records in 2013 and releasing their debut album THE WEIRD AND WONDERFUL MARMOZETS IN 2014. Now they are hitting the road hard in support of their 2nd album KNOWING WHAT YOU KNOW NOW.
But before we got to the main event the stage was taken over by Liverpool punk rock outfit Queen Zee and The Sasstones and they hit the stage hard, in your face punk with a message. They tore the stage apart with an amount of energy I haven’t seen in a long time and even though musically they were not my cup of tea I still couldn’t take my eyes of them, the set flew by and I enjoyed every minute off it,
Then on strode Marmozet’s all smiles and wide grins as the sold out academy 3 erupted, and then they were off, starting with the current radio favourite “Play” they brought there own brand of Nu Metal or Math rock to Manchester with a tightness and energy that was a joy to watch, playing tracks from both albums all sitting beautifully together, sophisticated guitar riffs interplay with intricate drum patterns all mashed up with Nu Metal hooks and melodies, and all served up wonderfully with a confidence that shows a band right on their game right now. I don’t like to make wild predictions but I believe the next 12 months are going to be huge, they have the songs, they have a live show which exciting and powerful, check em out, you know I’m right
