The Ridiculously Infectious Bugeye Come to Bury St Edmunds

Bugeye are a sequin-drenched four-piece hailing from the concrete shores of Croydon and signed to Reckless Yes Records.

Re-imagined in 2018 with dirty guitars, disco beats, sizzling synths and exploding bass riffs that accelerate into the catchiest hooks south of the river, be prepared to hit the dancefloor and join the revolution. Sold-out shows, rave reviews and an ever growing base of fans called Bugs, Bugeye have been hotly tipped as ‘ones to watch’ by John Kennedy at Radio X.

With live shows that embrace both music and the art of performance, Bugeye are embarking on a new world – one where the arts collide.

Their debut album ‘Ready, Steady, Bang’ was released in 2020 to critical acclaim featuring in many ‘best albums for 2020 lists’ including Louder Than War and God is In The TV. Their music is regularly played on BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music, Radio X, Amazing and Sirius to name but a few.

With lyrics touching on subjects from the mundanity of modern city life, to global issues such as racism and climate change, tunes come wrapped in a riotous optimism that demands you to dance. While Bugeye have one foot in pop’s past – think 70s dance floor meets post-punk meets noughties optimism – they certainly look towards a future, one that is theirs for the taking.

Podcasters, music activists and musicians, Bugeye are your new favourite band.

The incredible supporting line-up at The Hunter Club features electronic-cowboy-shoegaze geniuses Glitter Shop, the long-awaited live return of exquisitely-coiffed garage-rock legends The Vitamins, brand new indie heroes Outbound and epic emotive essayist Vermillion.
