An alternative indie soul incarnation, Various Cruelties is a band leading the charge. So many indie rock fans have grown
weary of the tired singer songwriter route of gifted musicians who don't have much to say and whose instrumentals lack fortitude.
Various Cruelties is here to answer the call with bold, bracing instrumentals that hammer listeners over the head and lyrics
that speak to something real, that connect with audiences and share an experience. That's what makes Various Cruelties' shows
so in demand. They play the music everyone has been waiting to hear, and they play it like there's no tomorrow!
Formed in London by frontman Liam O'Donnell, Various Cruelties is a band that pays attention and a band with a great deal
of respect. O'Donnell and company came together because of a like-minded drive to make gutsier music, music with verve and
passion. They wanted an outlet for their inspirations, and what inspired them was many of the great early rock and blues bands,
the guys who performed like their immortal soul hung in the balance and only a great show would land them a visit to the pearly
gates. Various Cruelties channels those bands and embodies that same focused spirit, the drive to make soulful, meaningful
and striking music, and what they have achieved has quickly become the stuff of legend. Score tickets from StubHub to see
Various Cruelties live and watch them take the next step in rock music!
While some might go the uber esoteric route and classify Various Cruelties as mod goth Motown pop, a better description
would be simply a blues band. Just as the genre espouses, less is more when thinking of Various Cruelties, and they've got
that down cold. They may utilize some synthesized rhythms from time to time, but it's all done in service of their mission:
to create amazing music that speaks to people, and in that regard, they have reached spectacular heights!
Having worked with Kasabian, The Vaccines and Grouplove as well as having appeared on the BBC's Later with Jools Holland
alongside Lou Reed, Metallica and Aaron Neville, it's clear Various Cruelties is a band of serious musical chops that has
garnered the respect of the industry and the worship of fans. Their latest tour takes them across the pond and introduces
them to new audiences, and the band couldn't be more excited to share their sound. With rock
