Leeds-based five-piece KOYO will celebrate the anniversary of their first album.

The band blend influences as wide as My Bloody Valentine and Kurt Vile, mixing melancholy vocals with intricate riffs.

Their critically-acclaimed album was released a year ago, and they were a regular on the festival circuit, with performances at Reading and Leeds.

They are embarking on a headline tour, and previewing some of their new material to be released in 2019 alongside songs from their self-titled album.

Vocalist and guitarist Huw Edwards said: “For us, this tour marks the point at which we close the first chapter and step into the next one.”

KOYO will perform at Mr Wolfs, in St Nicholas Street, in Bristol, on September 16 at 7pm.

Entry is free, but people are recommended to download e-tickets at to ensure a place at the gig.
