‘[Prides’] passion-drenched songs are ready-made for arenas’ – The Guardian
On top of the U.S. EP, Prides will be returning stateside for select dates starting in New York City including a sold out San Francisco show, a stop in San Diego, and the finale in Los Angeles. Touring seems to be Prides’ bread and butter. Past festival dates include headlining the BBC stage at Leeds / Reading, performing at the Commonwealth Games, plus supporting Blink 182, Magic Man, Foxes, and TwentyOne Pilots. That’s just last year. Prides just wrapped up sharing the stage with Kieza in 2015 plus they have been tapped this year to perform a plethora of festivals including Leeds / Reading, T in the Park, Dot to Dot, and Latitude.
The Glasgow natives are hopping the pond while being on fire in the United Kingdom. Being named “Artist to Watch” by VEVO, DIY Magazine, Digital Spy, Q Magazine and many more, the band has been championed by Zane Lowe, Fearne, Cotton, and so many other prestigious radio DJs. Watch the piano version of “Higher Love” while in the studio with Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1 HERE.
