The Surrenders, Elijah Miller & Greasy Diablos.
Sat 26th May, Bedford Esquires

We are very pleased to announce that The Scruff have managed to add a home town headline show as part of their May UK tour, and their only confirmed Bedford date for 2018.

Since they last graced the main stage, the band have had a whirlwind few months and head into 2018 as ones to watch. Their last single ‘Her’ was picked up by BBC Radio One and made Introducing Track Of The Week, as well as being picked up by Steve Lamacq and Radio X, who also made it their TOTW back in October.

Following on from a relentless tour in 2017, which saw the band play 40 shows in 3 months, including a BBC Showcase for SJM and a Fightback show for Music Venues Trust, the band headed into the studio to produce their next single ‘White Flag’.

White Flag is another testament to the strong songwriting that the band are becoming synonymous with. The single reflects the day to day struggles of life in a relationship, and the time out needed from your loved ones. The ongoing issues, the little fights and the need to sometimes press the reset button are all brought to the fore amongst a flurry of crunchy guitars, soaring vocals and even a little brass thrown in for good measure. All in all this is The Scruff’s strongest work to date and leads the band nicely into a busy summer of major festival appearances, so getting them back on home turf has been one of our main aims.

White flag is out everywhere right now, go and add it to those Spotify playlists!

Support on the night comes from The Scruff tour partners The Surrenders, rising Bedford talent Elijah Miller, who has just released details of his first ever headline London show, and one of The Scruff’s favourite brothers in arms, Greasy Diablos.

This date also coincides with FoodDrunk 002: Street Food / Specialist Gin / Live Music / DJs and the venue will be open all day – Early arrival advised!
