The Soundhouse Leicester presents one of the most innovative new bands in country, Fold on Saturday 17th October.

Fold are a funk & hip-hop influenced experimental four-piece based in Leeds. Inspired by Public Enemy among others they explore the natural rhythms of speech by building their tracks around samples with a strong social conscience. Unlike most forms of live music that incorporate samples Fold perform everything on stage live in order to preserve a sense of natural groove, unity & spontaneity in line with their funk forebears.Fold have been receiving considerable support from BBC 6 Music featuring regularly on Gideon Coe‘s show along with plays from Huey Morgan, Don Letts and Lauren Laverne. XFM have also shown their appreciation with frequent plays from John Kennedy and the honour of both record of the week and one of the top records of 2014 bestowed by Blur’s own Dave Rowntree. Fold’s EP collaboration with acclaimed poet Mr Gee (formerly of the Russell Brand Show) earned them an Independent Music Award. They have both remixed and supported Public Service Broadcasting and were interviewed for The Guardian website having been voted to the top of The Guardian‘s Breaking Bands series.
A debut album is set for October this year and the band are hitting the road and tour this release.
