THE SLEEVES (Hong Kong) Biography
“Part punk, part classic rock, part throwback 80s indie … proper rock’n’roll..”
The Sleeves are an independent British-born alternative rock band formed and based in Hong Kong. They play dirty power chords backed by frenetic drums with infectious pop melodies. Mix up The Kinks, the Sex Pistols, PIL, The Stone Roses, Kasabian and The Faces and you’ll be close.
In Asia, they’ve performed at international festivals and played support slots for Gary Numan, UNKLE and Peaches. Their second album ‘Deliverance’ was recorded in Cambodia and is currently being mixed for Autumn 2017 release.
The Sleeves’ performance at the Wigan Live Festival 2017 is the second of nine stops on the band’s tour of the north of England from 18-25 August.
