The Cookie presents x Firebug present Benefits + Support TBA DATE: Wednesday 1st February 2023 VENUE: Firebug, 1 Millstone Lane, Leicester, LE1 5JN TICKETS: https://bit.ly/3ekP1BA 16+ (accompanied by an adult) FOR FANS OF: Bob Vylan, Billy Nomates, Sleaford Mods LISTEN: https://youtu.be/aTsJjKqTR3Y The Cookie Presents and Firebug are pleased to be bringing Benefits to Leicester for Independent Venue Week 2023. Benefits are an issues-based music collective from Teesside in the North East of England. They write songs about the urgencies that concern them, and they play them loud. Forming in 2019 and consisting of Kingsley Hall on vocals, Robbie Major and Hugh Major on synths and noise with Cat Myers on drums, they quickly evolved from a fairly standard IDLES-lite shouty punk rock outfit to a highly politicised group that merges noise, hip hop, industrial rock, electronica, garage and an angry twitter feed to get it’s point across. Currently a completely DIY outfit, (no management, no label, no PR) and despite having zero radio play (due to the nature of their lyrics), through their releases they have managed to gain fans as diverse as Sleaford Mods, Black Francis, Garbage and Elijah Wood, as well as getting significant features in the NME, Rolling Stone, and the Quietus. Now a formidable live outfit with numerous sold out shows and tours under their belt they aim to keep the momentum going into 2023.
