Activity: We will be using the funding for help towards general costs associated with touring (both headline and key support slots) and festivals. The fund will also be used to develop the visual and sonic areas of the shows.  It will also go towards live promo such as key press events. The fund will also be put towards promo and marketing costs such as posters, promoted posts, radio and magazine live sessions and any other press requests which require a budget that otherwise wouldn’t be available to the band.

Our main focus has always been to be a strong live act and touring band dedicated to our following. To do so in the current environment and as a band at our level is becoming increasingly difficult in financial terms. Funding from Momentum means we can rest confidently that we’ll be able to reach our goals on the next album campaign/live cycle. It’ll allow us to ramp up the production of our live shows, including visuals and sound, enabling us to put on the best show for our paying supporters, whilst garnering new fans in the process. This, coupled with extra help towards marketing costs, will enable our music to reach a much wider audience.

Ultimately funding will allow us to maintain our ethics/outlook as a band and to simply continue to do what we love most, which is to play to an audience and to be ourselves whilst doing so.

Biog: Since releasing their self-titled debut album in March 2014, Eagulls have become synonymous with a discontented, disillusioned kind of anger, moulded into bullets of post punk that’s rife with urgency and aggression. Starting with the success of the first single “Nerve Endings” whose obscure video awarded them an NME Award for Best Video, and the excellent “Possessed” which they performed on David Letterman and Jools Holland, the Leeds quintet took the scene like a whirlwind with their self titled debut album. 2014 and 2015 saw them share the stage with the likes of Manic Street Preachers, Ride, Suede and Jesus and Mary Chain. Their own UK headline tour included sell out shows in Leeds and at London Scala, whilst their appearances at festivals such as Reading/Leeds, Latitude, End Of The Road, Bestival, Field Day and Coachella cemented their reputation as an incendiary live act not to be missed.

Throughout 2015 and in-between performing across the UK, Europe and America, Eagulls have been busy getting their heads down and writing their sophomore album. Produced by Matt Leeds and mixed by the legendary Craig Silvey, it’s eagerly anticipated release is due in Spring 2016 and promises to be more than worth the two year wait.
