Breakout U.K. band The Struts made a stop in the Music City recently as a part of their extensive U.S. tour in support of their new EP, Have You Heard, out now via Interscope Records. Comprised of Luke Spiller (lead vocals), Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums). The Struts formed in Derby, England in 2012; the band has been touring regularly throughout the U.K. and Europe, playing headline shows across the continent, and opening for The Rolling Stones in Paris last year.
The EP’s first single, “Could Have Been Me”, an arena-rocker of a tune that made yours truly do a double-take and crank up the radio even louder, reached #1 on Spotify’s viral chart. The band made their late night television debut performing it on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Their new single, “Kiss This,” is out now and already picking up steam–be sure to tune in TONIGHT to see them perform the song on NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers”!
In case you missed the festivities, East of 8th captured the action just for you, beloved readers. You can still catch The Struts live, so don’t miss out when they head to your neighborhood!
