It’s that time of the week again and this week we’re commemorating the release of The Snuts‘ demo track ‘What’s Going On?’ which kicked off a whirlwind of gigs throughout the following year. Towards the end of June, they went on to release their debut demo EP, The Metador, receiving a massive response.
The next month, the scotsmen performed in their home country at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut before travelling a little south to perform on the Calling Out Stage at Kendal Calling Festival. Returning to trusty Scotland to continue their festival tour, the four-piece also headlined the Break Out Stage at Party at the Palace in August and then made an appearance at Krafty Brew’s EH6 Festival in October.
The Snuts had the honour of supporting highly popular indie pop band The View in October and November before selling out their own Scotland mini tour in December and February. But it’s not just the Scottish fans that love them, the boys also sold out their Manchester date at The Eagle Inn!
In recent months, they have played Live At Leeds, Dot To Dot Festival and are set to return to Glasgow to play King Tut’s stage at TRNSMT Festival this weekend. Don’t miss them!
Last week was a momentous moment for The Snuts as they released their debut produced track ‘Seasons’ with an overwhelming reception. Just goes to show you don’t need to be releasing fully produced music to gain momentum and build your fanbase. The Snuts did well keeping interest through releasing demos for a couple of years.
Coming up, the band will be playing FIB Benicassim Festival, Spain in July and Scotland’s Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in August.
Frontman Jack provided a more personal insight into their year: “It was always our plan as a band to release enough good songs in demo format to give people a live set they could be a part of with us. Our early demos have seen us through the last year perfectly and made way some for some really memorable gigs.”
