Formed in Bristol (UK) in 2016, LICE first rose to acclaim with performances alongside The Fall, Fat White Family, Giant Swan, Shame and more, debuting a wiry brand of art-punk in their 2017 single 'Human Parasite'. In 2018 the band's arch-advocates IDLES, who took LICE on the 'Brutalism' and 'Unity' tours, released LICE’s ‘early-years’ collection on their label Balley Records as the Double EP ‘It All Worked out Great, Vol. 1+2’. This led to support from radio tastemakers such as BBC 6Music Steve Lamacq and critical praise from the likes of The Guardian, The Quietus and Loud and Quiet, who declared them “the most exciting, inspiring, and genuinely deranged new guitar band in the country”.
“…if you ever get the joy of seeing them live, they are definitely not pretenders- they are a formidable, formidable band” Joe Talbot (IDLES) on BBC 6 Music
