Having triumphed over 4,000 other entries to win the opportunity of a lifetime to perform in the world famous Radio 1 Live Lounge (which has previously hosted the likes of Oasis, Miley Cyrus and Stormzy), Scottish alt-rockers Uninvited have announced their first-ever headline tour.
Performing in Radio 1’s Live Lounge, the band treated listeners to their latest single “Behind The Black Door”, as well as a cover of “Just For Me” by BBC Radio 1’s Sound Of 2022 winner, PinkPantheress.
Uninvited were selected after their submission to Radio 1’s Live Lounge Introducing were reviewed by BBC Music Introducing’s network of local and regional shows, with a panel of industry experts helping to narrow down the longlist. Introducing alumni artists Alfie Templeman, Mabel, Mahalia and Tom Grennan then joined Radio 1’s Rickie Haywood-Williams, Melvin Odoom, Charlie Hedges, Jack Saunders and Gemma Bradley to judge the top five best tracks and select the overall winner.
Speaking about the single, the band said:
It’s one of the first-ever songs we wrote as a band, and over the years, it has just gotten bigger and better. We immediately knew we wanted to wait before bringing this song out as it is such an important message that we are trying to get across, and the fact that the song is still relevant in today’s current political climate proves that we can’t stop speaking out about the government and its incompetence. We’re here to make noise.
Uninvited will embark on their first UK headline tour in September, with dates as follows:
09/26 – Bristol, Crofters Rights
09/27 – London, Paper Dress Vintage
09/28 – Manchester, YES Basement
09/30 – Glasgow, The Garage Attic
