False Advertising

False Advertising

FALSE ADVERTISING are a three-piece noise-pop trio who specialise in drenching the catchiest of hooks in the fizziest of guitar-fuzz. Fusing the best of 90’s alternative rock from both sides of the atlantic and embidying all that is still so vital about raw, energetic live music.

Impressing everyone from Steve Lamacq, Total Guitar, The Guardian, DIY and Drowned in Sound along the way. 2016 saw the band stun Liverpool Sound City, Kendal Calling, Dot to Dot Festival and Off The Record (where they were surprise headliners), as well as rack up killer support slots with Bob Mould (Husker Du), The Garden, Estrons, The Amazons and Pins.

Press:
“Brainless is a celebration of how good – and powerful – it feels to be noisy, in the spirit of a free-wheeler down a steep hill with the sun in your eyes. Breathless, grubby, reckless fun.” – The Skinny

“Many bands have embraced grunge’s more appealing side lately, but False Advertising bath in the backlash: think In Utero with the ugly bits emphasized.” – Total Guitar
