Fantastic hooks and melodies, a staggering live show and a healthy dose of organised chaos gives you just a glimpse into the world of RedFaces.

A gang of lifelong friends from Sheffield who have immersed themselves in the classics, drawing influence from the 50's, right through to the present day - they are quickly winning fans, friends and plaudits across the UK and are quite rightly becoming one of the most talked about bands in the country.

Following a ground swell of support from the likes of John Kennedy and Jo Good at XFM, Steve Lamacq on BBC6 Music, BBC Introducing locally and Huw Stephens on Radio 1 – RedFaces signed with legendary label RCA in the middle of 2015.

The Blue Aeroplanes’ unique amalgam of rock, folk, poetry, punk, dance and art has been an acknowledged influence on a wide range of bands including REM and Radiohead. Combining pop smarts with serious weirdness, they have released almost thirty albums on various labels, several of which have charted in the UK Top 40 and the US Alternative Top 10. Their 1990 album ‘Swagger was Rock Album Of The Year in many publications including The Sunday Times.
