Californian surf-punk band The Frights have been announced as support to Taking Back Sunday on their UK & European tour next month, alongside Thursday’s Geoff Rickly.
The Frights signed to Epitaph in 2018 and released their album ‘Hypochondriac’, produced by Zac Carper of FIDLAR, that year. Just recently, the band released a live album ‘The Frights Live At The Observatory‘, which documents the sold-out kick-off show of their ‘Hypochondriac’ headline tour in 2018. A show that Mikey Carnevale (vocals/guitar) and Richard Dotson (bass) attended at The Observatory whilst in high school was, in fact, the driving force for them forming the band in the first place.
Every live show The Frights play is both high-energy and hyper-emotional, a free-for-all fueled by crowds of thousands screaming along to intensely honest lyrics about anxiety and angst, breakups and bad crushes, mental health and medication. Since 2015, the San Diego surf-punk band has set that surreal phenomenon in motion at over 300 shows across the U.S. and Europe, as well as at festivals like Lollapalooza, Shaky Knees, Ohana, Riot Fest, The Great Escape, and this year’s Coachella.
