Terrrorvision was, and for all intents and purposes, still is, one of the most important bands from the well-loved Brit Rock era that dominated the UK rock scene during the ’90s and early ’00s.

In order to celebrate 30 years since the release of their debut album Formaldehyde, Terrorvision will embark on the TV30 By Request three-date tour in November to celebrate the milestone. Starting at the Rock City in Nottingham on 2 November, they include a hometown gig at St Georges in Bradford on 3 November before concluding at the Electric Ballroom in London on 4 November. These TV30 BY REQUEST shows will feature all 13 of the band’s Top 40 hits.

The band comment:

“It’s just like they’ve been preserved in the liquid of their 1993 debut album Formaldehyde! Bradford’s finest Terrorvision strike out 3 special gigs in November 2023 to celebrate 30 years of raucous, rowdy, rip-snorting rock n roll. As potent a live force as ever, and with a set list of 90’s bangers to die for, the band wanted to celebrate this magnificent milestone in the only way they know how! Cue 3 very loud, very bouncy parties! Whales, Dolphins, Ooh-Wops and Tequilas will be toasted! 14 chart-bothering singles and the usual live faves, along with a handful of fan-voted deep cuts will be on a very tasty menu of Rock! How to KEEP friends and influence people, indeed! See y’all down the front!”

Formed in 1988, Terrorvision’s aim to be the biggest band from Bradford (beginning with ‘T’) still holds true. Five hit albums and 13 Top 40 singles (peaking at No.2!) between 1993 and 2001 saw them catapulted from pub gigs in Yorkshire to arenas and major festival stages across Europe.

Whether they were doo-wopping their way to “Oblivion,” hailing the advice of whales and dolphins in “Perseverance,” or celebrating the mind-altering properties of a certain strain of cactus juice, Terrorvision made friends and influenced fans across the world and confirmed themselves as the ‘go to’ rock band for festival fun and games throughout the ’90s.

2001 saw an end to the ride. Frazzled and brain-fried after ten straight years on the road, the band went their separate ways to try out other things in life and in music. MarksBlunderbuss delivered the metal, Leigh’s Malibu Stacey some snotty glam-tinged punk and Tony’s Laika Dog alt-rock with a side order of indie.

A handful of gigs and festival appearances from 2005-2010, which proved, like riding a bicycle, that being back on a stage and rocking the s*** out of it came naturally, led to the band writing and releasing their first album for ten years, Super Delux. The album delighted their hardcore fan base with a barrage of hooks and everything turned up to 11!

Touring Super Delux throughout 2012 (with everything turned up to 11) left the band somewhat fried and mangled all over again, so everyone split for calmer waters and new challenges.

An out-of-the-blue invitation from Thunder to guest on their 2016 arena shows was the impetus the band needed to get back in a room together, and since then, Terrorvision have been out to play a handful of gigs each year to increasingly large crowds in increasingly bigger venues, the likes of which they haven’t played since the 1990s. It seems more and more people want a bit of Terrorvision back in their lives.
