NAMT on the Road Tour will come to Record Junkee, Sheffield on March 10

Renowned for their explosive live performances, Pet Needs are attracting attention in all the right places, including from Steve Lamacq who called them “crispy melodic rock and roll…up my street”. Their Frank Turner-mastered debut album ‘Fractured Party Music’ saw them tour to increasingly larger venues across the country.

Proceeds from the show will be donated to The Nick Alexander Music Trust, a UK registered charity which provides grants for musical instruments and equipment to small charities and disadvantaged community groups across the UK . It was created in memory of Nick Alexander who was killed in the terrorist attack at the Bataclan in Paris in 2015 while touring with Eagles of Death Metal.

“The Nick Alexander Music Trust does amazing work donating music gear to amazing charities and community projects across the country. As a former youth worker, I understand the value of creativity in youth work and have also seen firsthand how many of these projects have to work with minimal resources.

“The NAMT on the Road tour works in two ways. One, it raises money for amazing causes and two, it gives musicians like me the opportunity to tour again after the pandemic. The ultimate win-win! – Johnny Marriott, Pet Needs
