Southampton University band #Tags revealed today (May 29th) that they were to debut on national radio tomorrow night (May 30th), when one of their songs is due to be played on none other than BBC Radio 1.
Writing on their official Facebook page earlier, the group made the following announcement:
Tomorrow night on BBC Radio 1, Huw Stephens will be playing a new track from our next release on his show! You’ll be able to listen to it live on Radio 1, or listen again at the following link:
Hope y’all enjoy,
Having previously performed live on Three Counties Radio show BBC Introducing in Beds, Herts & Bucks, as well as being interviewed and played on BBC 6 Music DJ Tom Robinson’s show, #Tags are quickly developing a reputation on a national level, and the news of their imminent appearance on the Huw Stephens show on Radio 1 is the natural next step in the process of attempting to secure that most elusive status of ‘fame’.
Speaking to The Edge, #Tags frontman Pat McManus noted that the four-piece group, who formed in Ruislip, London last year, are “really excited to be played on the UK’s number one radio station”, and “hope this is the first of many such occasions”. McManus also revealed that the song to be played on the show, which airs between 12 and 2am on Wednesday night/Thursday morning, is ‘Sick of Heels‘, the lead track from their second EP No Ball Games. The song is a new version due to appear on an upcoming release entitled Budget Cuts, a collection of songs from No Ball Games and first EP Summer, re-worked and re-recorded earlier this year.
#Tags’ song ‘Sick of Heels’ will be played on Huw Stephens’s show live on BBC Radio 1 between 12 and 2am on Wednesday night.
