Release New single ‘Putin’s Day Off’

Out July 5th

Fiercely independent and courageously unique Croydon-based duo Frauds are set to release their brand new single ‘Putin’s Day Off’ on July 5th.

The live favourite is the latest in a string of single releases that follow their well received 2017 debut album ‘With Morning Toast & Jam & Juice’, an epic amalgamation of blisteringly heavy guitars and wry, satirical lyrics. 

“Putin’s Day Off is a song about perception” Mikey Alvarez explains, “Do you believe that Vladimir Putin killed a bear with his hands? Do you believe that Kim Jong-um climbed a mountain in a suit without breaking a sweat? Do you believe that the things you do and care about are important? Maybe they’re important or real if you believe them to be…and not if you don’t.”

 Formed in late 2012 in a dingy rehearsal room in West Croydon, Frauds are an energetic, over-the-top duo comprised of Chris Francombe (drum/vocals) and Mikey Alvarez (guitar/vocals). The band combines thick jagged riffs and beats with a mixture of humour and anger in equally measure.

The band have had their most active year since forming supporting Future of The Left and Jamie Lenman across the UK. Over the last few years Frauds have also shared a stage with Idles, Life, HMLTD, Raketkanon, Tigercub, The St Pierre Snake Invasion, Demob Happy, Kagoule, USA Nails, Slaves, Blacklisters, Queen Kwong and many more.
