Roadrunner Records has signed MARMOZETS. The five-piece, who hail from Yorkshire, England, have also released their brand new single, “Move, Shake, Hide” accompanied by an official music video which can be seen below. Marmozets are slated to release their debut album in the spring of 2014.
Marmozets’ “Move, Shake, Hide” follows the band’s previous single, “Born Young and Free,” which received high critical praise and support from BBC Radio 1 DJs Daniel P Carter, Huw Stephens and Zane Lowe, with regular airplay on Kerrang! Radio & XFM’s Rock Show. Celebrated by Rock Sound magazine as “one of the most exciting new sounds to come out of the UK,” Marmozets released their debut EP, Passive Aggressive, in 2011 followed by the Vexed EP in 2012, which Kerrang! touted as “a breathless, bold and brilliant effort from a band with a seemingly bottomless reserve of ideas.”
Marmozets, who are comprised of two sets of siblings—Becca Macintyre (vocals), Sam Macintyre (guitar/vocals), Josh Macintyre (drums), Jack Bottomley (guitar) and Will Bottomley (bass/vocals)—have been cutting their teeth since 2011, earning widespread applause for their chaotic live shows. Nominated for the “Best British Newcomer” Award at the 2013 Relentless Kerrang! Awards, Marmozets have destroyed stages all over the UK, including appearances at the prestigious Download and Reading & Leeds festivals. Despite an average age of 18, Marmozets are no strangers to the road and have toured alongside the likes of Gallows, Young Guns, Funeral For A Friend and more, recently completing a sold-out UK headline tour.
