"Fun loving, booze guzzling, hotel trashing......The Mr Shiraz juggernaut brings the finest in rock, funk, metal and punk!" - Metal Hammer
"Let's be honest, Mr Shiraz are pretty much the UK's equivalent to Faith No More. Shiraz take no prisoners and prove themselves to be a band that should be a lot bigger than they are! HTF APPROVE!!" - Hit The Floor Magazine
‘In the current climate of identikit hair and tight black clothes, Mr Shiraz are a breath of fresh air. This could very much be their time.’ - Big Cheese Magazine
Mr.Shiraz has been hard at work since 2005, having been crowned champions at the prestigious Mean Fiddler/Futuresoundtournament and went on to play at the illustrious Carling Festival weekend to a packed, enthusiastic audience. The success of the show was evident when they were once again asked back to play the following year.
Shortly after Mr.Shiraz were in heavy demand again with European tours including festivals across Belgium, Germany, Holland,Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic and many more. Soon after the album was launched, the band received airplay across Europe(including Radio 1’s “Punk Show” & Xfm) and magazines such as Metal Hammer, Big Cheese & Kerrang! were soon giving Mr.Shiraz glowing reviews for their adrenaline fueled live shows. Which also led the band on an extensive 6 week tour of the USA.
2013 saw a very different sounding Mr.Shiraz. The band ditched their ska/punk image and recorded a very different and personal self titled album a very much more mature and driven sound that has had reviewers of their live shows comparing the new “Mr.Shiraz” to that of The Bronx, Faith No More & Rage Against the Machine.
