New York’s Big Ups return with ‘Capitalized’, a thunderous new track buoyed by gnarling basslines and an intensity that’s near impossible to match.

The band are also pleased to announce an extensive run of UK and European dates across the continent through March and April 2016 – their first shows on these shores since the summer of 2014, which came off the back of the band’s widely acclaimed debut LP, Eighteen Hours of Static.

Said album, released via the esteemed Tough Love Records in the UK, was quick to draw admirers for the Brooklyn four-piece – comprised of Brendan Finn, Joe Galarraga, Amar Lal and Carlos Salguero – earning rapturous write-ups across the board, and taking the band to the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios for a session.

If the rollicking tumult of ‘Capitalized’ is anything to go by, the band now find themselves set to exceed all expectations laid down by Eighteen Hours of Static.

“A collection of anthems for a new tomorrow, made by the disaffected youth of today” – NME

“Big Ups’ debut serves as a thrilling history lesson in American punk” – Loud & Quiet

“Big Ups sound like the solution. Now we just need to work out what the problem is” – The Guardian
