Menace Beach Headline Tour


Monday 19th January 2015

Menace Beach are a psych-indie duo from Leeds, UK, led by Ryan Needham (vocals and guitar) and Liza Violet (vocals, keyboards, guitar), as well as assistance from Hookworm’s singer Matthew ‘MJ’ Johnson on guitar and production duties, Nestor Matthews from Sky Larkin on drums and Matt Spalding on bass.  

The band release their debut album Ratworld today (19th Jan), as they kick off their headline tour in their native Leeds. Full tour dates below.

Recorded at MJ’s Suburban Home studios during the summer of 2014, Ratworld is a thirteen song journey through a psych-tinged wonderland, with the band waving goodbye to the fractured rubble of an unhappy lifestyle, they take comfort in chaos, looking around at their perfect mess and feeling deeply content.

"We’ve created our own grubby little Ratworld to inhabit. Everything is better when it’s a bit grubby and broken.” - Ryan

The band released their Tastes Like Medicine EP last month, also featuring the track 'Tennis', a superbly fuzzed out, psyched-up melody.
