Celebrates 15 years as a record label
by hitting the road this March! 

Featuring Sauna Youth, Trash Kit, Vital Idles, Guttersnipe, Rattle & more

Next March, the London-based record label and promoter Upset The Rhythm will be marking their 15th anniversary with a label showcase tour around Britain. Representing many of Upset The Rhythm’s current UK roster, the tour will see the likes of DIY punk progressives Sauna Youth (London), Trash Kit (Glasgow/London) and Vital Idles(Glasgow) perform alongside hypnotic Nottingham drum and voice duo Rattle, and Guttersnipe, a group from Leeds who shredded their tonal territory into euphoria this year with their debut album.

Within the last fifteen years Upset The Rhythm has organised countless international tours, over 1500 live events in London and racked up a back catalogue you’d have to ask a friend to help carry, 115 titles at point of writing. The forward-facing, genre-less attitude with which the label is run is a reflection of the genuine admiration they hold for all the artists they choose to work with.

This has led to the label’s scope becoming truly international. Upset The Rhythm work with artists from Australia like TerryThe Green Child and School Damage, European acts like Pega Monstro, Makoto Kawabata and Pikacyu from Japan and Darlene Shrugg from Canada. They also release American acts such as Deerhoof, Xiu Xiu and The World and were responsible for discovering the talents of John Maus, Future Islands and No Age with debut releases from all.

Alongside all this, Upset The Rhythm has always been tireless in their support of the noise next door, proving to be a pivotal platform for Britain’s enthralling musical underground over the years. It’s this side of things they’re choosing to highlight with this tour, shining a spotlight on the most essential sounds on our doorstep, bearing the torch throughout the kingdom.
