The Rills are returning to Lincoln!

Lincoln indie band The Rills have announced their UK tour dates – and, naturally, Lincoln is on the list! The accidental TikTok stars, with a sound ‘like a raging bull if it went to university and sought anger management counselling’, are returning to Lincoln in December as the last stop on their tour.

Pre-sale tickets are on sale from May 26th, with general release on Friday 28th, for their homecoming gig at The Scene in December. In the meantime, listen to their music on all the usual streaming platforms… or just take a scroll through their addictive TikTok account:

Seeing a meteoric rise through TikTok and the release of their singles ‘The Angler’ and ‘Stardog’ over lockdown, The Rills have emerged as a stand-out artist, hotly tipped for great things in 2021 and beyond.

Championed by BBC Introducing as a keen one to watch, the band earned a spot on BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in 2021, debuting their to be released single, ‘World Leader’.

Having brushed the shoulders of the UK’s underground circuit for years, including living stints in Sheffield and London, the band have returned home to Lincoln amid lockdown. Musically, The Rills play on the band’s trademarked thunderous rhythm section, led by lead singer Mitch Spencer, who is known for his quick witted and ardent kitchen sink lyricism. The band are expecting to release a debut EP by Autumn 2021.

Beyond the band’s raucous musical talent, The Rills have established a core fanbase through TikTok, signifying a resilient determination to overcome a heavily disrupted live schedule, and in turn, pioneering new ways to reach out to fan bases through their relatable comedy and dynamic use of social media.
