Forming in early 2016, SickOnes (S1s) quickly carved out their own sound within the UK punk scene; driven by groove yet maintaining a real urgency. SickOnes have played numerous shows up and down the UK as well as two runs of Europe and a two-week tour of the East Coast of USA. They have toured with both Dead Kennedys & Cancer Bats, which saw SickOnes playing to sold out crowds.
With two stand out EPs: Find Energy & Transatlantic Split (an international release alongside US band Divebomb). Their latest 3 track (featuring new vocalist) Candid / The Step / Exit Years (2019) debuted on BBC 6 Music. It’s also been included on BBC 6 Music’s DJ picks of the year.
At the end of 2018 SickOnes parted ways with their original singer and began their second phase with new vocalist. This saw the introduction of new wave and anthemic elements, creating a much bigger sound. The introduction of their new lead has energised the band further and 2019 will see them building on their original strengths. Championed by Huey Morgan of Fun Lovin’ Criminals they have received numerous plays on BBC 6 Music – a rare occurrence for a band within their genre.
