Multi-platinum New York trio Fun Lovin’ Criminals have announced a return to the UK and will headline at Manchester Academy.
A mainstay on the festival circuit in the UK and Europe, Fun Lovin’ Criminals have revealed a 12-date UK tour opening in January at Birmingham’s The Mill before rounding out at the end of March.
Fun Lovin’ Criminals burst onto the music scene in 1996, gate crashing the euphoric Brit-pop party with unforgettable finesse. Heralded for their generation defining blend of styles and effortless Lower East Side charm, FLC’s refreshing cocktail of rock n’ roll, funk, blues, soul, hip hop, jazz and latin, gave the Crims a unique timelessness that is still apparent three decades on.
FLC’s debut single Scooby Snacks, famed for sampling Tarantino movies such as Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction launched a career that saw the debut EMI album Come Find Yourself remain in the UK album chart for over two years.
Fun Lovin’ Criminals returned to the studio this year with Grammy award winning engineer Tim Latham to make forthcoming new album Another Mimosa, their first studio album since 2010.
