It was back in 2012 when we last had Will and the People at Staycation Live and it’s ten years too long we reckon… so, we are very happy and excited to have them back for 2022, our 10 year anniversary festival !
You can tell from the way they play, talk and live that Will And The People aren’t following a formula or trying to follow the pack. They play music because it makes them feel good, feel free and feel whole.
Their music is nostalgic, colourful, both melodically and lyrically, and it packs a punch; heavy guitars, catchy synth lines and punchy drums frame these wonderful compositions. Live and in the flesh, they are a force to be reckoned with, and it’s where they truly shine.
Following the release of their latest single ‘Money’ and album ‘Past the Point of No Return’ Brighton 4-piece Will And The People announce the release of their next single ‘Heaven’ on 24th Feb 2022. Including April and May tour dates, plus 4 shows supporting Rag’ N’ Bone Man in June, at his personal request. This follows recent sold out shows in London, Brighton and Bristol, as well as supporting The Libertines at the O2 Forum Kentish Town back in December, plus festival plays last Summer at the likes of Boardmasters, where they headlined The View stage, and Green Man, where they headlined the Chai Wallahs stage on closing day.
‘Working with alacrity, the record features their spiky yet melodic indie sound, and that is evident on ‘Money’. A discussion about looking beyond the hype, it’s a punchy, resolute statement from the band.’ CLASH
‘With an album titled Past the Point of No Return on the way, and as evidenced by their exceptional new single ‘Money’, Brighton’s Will And The People are ones to watch very closely. Punk in delivery and attitude, the four-piece are glitter-bombing their wild music so as to make an intoxicating blend of stadium rock and punk that is politically un-political.’ GIGWISE
‘Over the last decade or so the outfit have more often than not, done things their way and crafted a sound that feels both colourful and full of life and rich with melody and lasting appeal.’ CLOUT
The album is out now and available to stream via Spotify and all usual platforms here: https://lnk.to/QzaHmq“
