Straight off the back of a string of summer gigs and festivals up and down the country, The RPMs are back and all revved up with a chunkier and funkier sound than before. They have announced a new batch of autumn and winter dates in support of their forthcoming single recorded with Gethin Pearson, a talented and creative producer, mixer and songwriter from Wales who has worked with many new artists, notably Mallory Knox whose single this year Giving It Up received its premiere as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on Radio and more recently To Kill A King.

Fuelled by the support they have received from national radio with their evolving sound on recent singles Oh My God and Things I Forgot To Do, the band is following a new direction with their music, which at its heart is still all about songs packed with infectious hooks and beats to get you moving.

The RPMs recently released their second EP Agents Of Change in June 2017 through Xtra Mile Recordings. The release revealed a band getting to grips with coming of age in an increasingly volatile world with the band offering their take on the grip of social media in modern life. They followed their release with a run of shows throughout the spring and summer months, including supporting We Are Scientists. Alongside this they also played Camden Rocks, Isle of Wight Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Butefest,110 Above, Big Feastival (run by Jamie Oliver and Alex James from Blur) and RivFest in honour of the memory of River Reeves and the members of Viola Beach.

The EP continued to win them fans on the radio, including airplay of lead single Oh My God from Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson across BBC 6 Music and Radio 1, BBC Introducing In The South and the Radio X Evening Playlist. More recently, Things I Forgot To Do was added to Huw Stephens’ Best of BBC Introducing playlist as well as the Radio X Evening Playlist and John Kennedy Recommends on Radio X.

With a fresh single in the pipeline the band are gearing up to hit the road running with new tour dates, so keep your eyes and ears peeled as the band road test new material at a venue near you.
