Canadian based Aussie rockers THE LAZYS have today announced a free London show in conjunction with House of Vans on Wednesday 13th March. As part of the House of Vans ‘Sessions’ series, THE LAZYS will perform on the Tunnel 2 stage at the London House of Vans venue, supported by Leeds quintet Fizzy Blood and Canadian rock duo The Standstills. Doors open at 7pm and ticket holders must be aged 18+.
Since relocating to the opposite side of the world, things have gone from strength to strength for the THE LAZYS, who have been playing their asses off all over the globe to become one of the most talked about live acts in the rock scene. The band’s latest album ‘Tropical Hazards’, released last May, aptly captures the raw power and energy they ooze on stage and stamps it on a record.
‘Tropical Hazards’ is a high-octane, hell-raisin’, rock ‘n roll ride, produced by Ian D’Sa (Billy Talent) and Eric Ratz (Big Wreck, Danko Jones, Monster Truck). 10 belters that are unabashedly outrageous, packed with classic songs about wild nights, pretty girls, heartbreak, and resilience but are never too cliché.
On past tours with bands like Billy Talent, Monster Truck, Danko Jones, and The Headstones, The Lazys quickly gained a reputation for their rowdy performance. Touring ‘Tropical Hazards’, the band are out to do what they do best: bring the party! “I want people to leave feeling entertained,” says lead guitarist Matty Morris. “I want them to leave thinking that was the best rock show they’ve ever seen. To leave sweaty, dirty, horny!”
As part of a run of European shows, the band also perform at Glasgow’s G2 venue on March 11th and at the Star & Garter in Manchester on March 12th. The Lazys then return for festivals in the summer including Ramblin’ Man with further announcements to come.

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
