The past 12 months has seen the release of “Visiting Hours of a Travelling Circus”, the debut album from Northern Irish alt-rockers MOJO FURY, which was lauded by all corners of the rock music press during its release: iTunes ran the band as ’Single of the Week’, Rock Sound as ‘Band of the Week’ and features in Artrocker, Big Cheese, Total Guitar, Rhythm and Kerrang magazine followed.
Artrocker (‘Album of the Month’), Kerrang, Big Cheese and Rock Sound were all lavish in their praise, and BBC Radio 1, NME Radio, XFM, Total Rock and more played out cuts from the album. 2011 was then rounded off with Mojo Fury winning ‘Best New Band’ at the Artrocker Awards in London.
In the past 12 months the band have toured with the likes of Amplifier, Maybeshewill, Lite, and ASIWYFA, along with stand out performances at festivals like Sonisphere, 2000Trees, Live At Leeds, In The City and Brainwash, which have enhanced their rapidly growing reputation as one of the UK’s most intriguing and exciting bands. This year the band showed no signs of stopping by spending 35 dates on the road supporting InMe and LostAlone in February and March.
Now in April the band have headed into the studio to record their 2nd album set for release later this year. If that wasn’t enough Mojo Fury have also announced their next UK tour in May which sees them again hooking up with label mates LostAlone.
