JUDAS are a London-based indie rock four piece drawn together from all corners of the UK. Despite only being together two short years, they have already accomplished some very significant milestones for such a young band. After releasing their self titled EP, they set their sights on becoming one of the most exciting live bands of the moment, blazing through a string of major festivals (including Isle of Wight, Kendal Calling, Sound City, Y Not, Truck Festival, Tramlines, and a coveted slot on the Main Stage at Leeds festival 2016) and critically acclaimed gigs at renowned venues such as KOKO, Indigo at the O2, Islington Assembly Hall and Concorde 2. 

With hundreds of live performances under their belt and coveted appearances across TV and radio including including a live set on Soccer AM, numerous airplays on BBC introducing, XFM and a live BBC introducing session, the boys are certainly beginning as they mean to go on.

 

Judas’ sound is most commonly compared to a combination of U2 and Kings of Leon with huge, anthemic songs and timeless melodies making up the core of their sound. With influences including Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay and Stereophonics, Judas have created a unique yet familiar sound that is delivered live with exceptional energy and precision.
