Bugzy Malone announces UK tour dates

After a phenomenal 18 months that have seen him rise to prominence, Manchester MC Bugzy Malone has announced a string of UK dates this November as part of his ‘Facing Time‘ Tour.

Back with his second EP Facing Time, which debuted at number 1 on the official iTunes album chart, recent times have seen Bugzy gain plenty of attention and rack up over 50 million views on YouTube for his freestyles and music videos.

Last July Bugzy Malone released his debut EP Walk With Me which stormed into the official album chart at number 8 and then followed up with a sold out UK Tour, two Mobo nominations and winning ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ at the first ever Rated Awards. At the start of 2016 Bugzy performed on the NME Tour alongside Bloc Party, Drenge and Ratboy, giving him vital experience in the music industry.

Bugzy describes his latest EP as ‘the best thing he’s ever made’ and it’s released on his own label ill gotten records, which he set-up to sign local artists from Manchester and the North of England. Facing Time includes 8 tracks and you can download your copy on iTunes here.

Having played a monstrous set at Parklife festival, expect to see Bugzy at all the other major festivals this summer including Glastonbury, Wireless, Nass and Reading & Leeds. Check out the dates for his ‘Facing Time Tour’ below…

With grime and hip hop being major influences on him growing up in South East London, Matt's passion is urban music but over the years he has gathered a hugely diverse taste, ranging from Wiley to The Smiths by way of Machine Head, that has made him a very open minded individual.
