Scottish punks BABY STRANGE visited Evil Art Sessions and recorded two raw songs; More! More! More! and a cover of Nicky William’s song Pathetic Fuck. Released August 24th on Icons Creating Evil Art
Fronted by the magnetic & alluring Johnny Madden and rounded out by brothers Connaire & Aidan McCann, BABY STRANGE have re-established themselves as one of the most innovative and uncompromising outfits in the UK. Since the release of their critically acclaimed 2016 debut album ‘Want It Need It’, Baby Strange have toured tirelessly, building an enthusiastic and dedicated live audience, selling out venues across the UK & sharing stages with the likes of Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, Slaves, Jamie T & Wavves.
Far from being just satisfied with focusing on their own journey, Baby Strange took a step further to solidifying themselves within the heart of the music community by launching their own club night ‘Club Sabbath’ back in 2015 at The Priory in Glasgow & The Old Blue Last in London. Since its inception, Club Sabbath has played an active role in building a thriving music community, providing a platform for the likes of Wolf Alice, Fontaines D.C, DMA’s, The Chats, Gang Of Four, The Magic Gang, Nick Allbrook (POND) and Marsicans. Bands such as The Dunts, The Spyres, Dead Pony, Rascalton & Pleasure Heads all cite Baby Strange & Club Sabbath as a direct influence on their musical journeys.
The previous singles from the new EP ‘Land of Nothing‘ has been tremendously well received over at Spotify, with New Music Friday UK, All New Rock, New Punk Tracks, Punk Unleashed, The Rock List and two cover placements; The Punk List and Scotify, and a getting listed on the hugely popular ‘Walk Like a Badass’ playlist with almost 2 million followers. They also had nice support from other DSPs like Apple Music, Deezer and Amazon. Something the band has been gladly sharing on their social media. On radio the singles have started to build nicely with the UK seeing support from the likes of BBC Radio, Beats1, Total Rock, Radio X and Amazing Radio.
Evil Art Sessions is a series of in-house live sessions recorded at the Icons Creating Evil Art headquarters. Always including a cover version from the ICEA catalogue. The Baby Strange Evil Art Sessions 010 follows the brand new EP ‘Land of Nothing’ released on Icons Creating Evil Art, and the band has a full length album planned for Q1 2022 which follows the ‘Land of Nothing Tour’ (dates below).
