The band itself remains an enigma born from a disenfranchised group of kids residing in Manchester. LYF stands for Lucifer Youth Foundations and it comes from a punk rock 'fuck the establishment' vibe nestled inside us all. WU LYF are and will be one of the next big things as they keep producing songs with so much heavy angst and emotional clarity its hard not to beat your chest and jump in behind them. Their show in the pits of the Studio will see the collective in your face and all around your head in this incredible live venue made for the up close and personal.

WU LYF

WU LYF itself remains an enigma born from a disenfranchised group of kids residing in Manchester. LYF stands for Lucifer Youth Foundations and membership is available for fifteen pounds. Apart from the seductive whimsey of their blog, WU LYF have gained notoriety for their rousing live performances that feel as though they are staged in a cathedral of angst and energy. The music is unique, powerfully emotive and astoundingly well structured considering the band has only been together for around a year.Read More...
