DIY Presents: Estrons and The Bay Rays team up for DIY Presents autumn tour!

Estrons and The Bay Rays team up for DIY Presents autumn tour!

Two of Britain’s most fuzzy and ferocious new hopes, twelve whites-of-their-eyes intimate venues. What could go wrong?

This autumn, DIY is linking up with Estrons and The Bay Rays, two of the country’s brightest and brawniest hopes.  The DIY Presents tour kicks off at the tail end of September, taking in twelve dates and bringing the ruckus to every corner of the UK.

It comes ahead of a start to the year that’s already marked headliners Estrons out as something very special indeed. Where their debut single ‘Make A Man’ and ‘Whoever She Was…’ EP blew minds as 2015 drew to a close, it was left to their instant classic new single ‘Drop’ to crush those chunks of blown brain down into gunpowder and fire them off the roof like fireworks. Make no mistake - this is a group to get giddy over. 

Support comes from The Bay Rays, whose two singles to date - ‘Four Walls’ and ‘New Home’ - have marked them out as a force capable of fusing both candy-coated infectious pop and devastatingly direct grunge with ease.

You’re gonna want earplugs for these. Dates and tickets below - see venues for age restrictions:
