Heathens & Cream / Haunted Hokum

A 2 track art & progressive rock single (7m 22s) — released December 2nd 2016 on Milky Bomb Records

Milky Bomb Records present, an unexpected pleasure... Just when we thought things might go quiet until after the holidays, we were introduced to the complex, creative & haunting sounds of London trio Civil Villains & their new AA-side release Heathens and Cream // Haunted Hokum

Friends long before band mates, Civil Villains spent many evenings discussing the music they loved before they decided to start making their own. Their sound has been hard to pin down, walking the tightrope between mathy alt rock and desert riffage. Described by one reviewer as "being belted in the stomach with an indie/techy/early Biffy fucked up riffy punch followed with a smooth cuddle of beautiful toned guitars and complex beats". Their live show saw them described as "humble and talented".

Recorded at Brighton Electric with Josh Harrison (Royal Blood, Tigercub, British Sea Power), Civil Villains are set to release their forthcoming double A-side Heathens and Cream // Haunted Hokum on November 25th through Milky Bomb Records. Debut release Fallow was included on an anti-racism compilation put together by Might As Well Records, alongside many other acts including Apologies, i have none, Youth Man, Fizzy Blood, Departures, and lots more.

Having cut their teeth in all manner of London venues, Civil Villains have recently returned from a North American tour, where they performed headline shows in Toronto and Cambridge, Envol et Macadam Festival in Quebec City and Mondo.NYC Festival in New York. Recently they were main support for Listener at The Borderline; played with Tides from Nebula, London shows with Polymath at The Boston Music Room and Wild Throne at The Old Blue Last.
