Late Night Fiction – Polar
Grey Man Records
Late Night Fiction are a melodic post-hardcore quartet based in Hull, East Yorkshire, England. Formed in 2007 by lead singer Phill Morris and guitarist James Thompson as an acoustic duo, ambitions for a heavier sound have drummer Nat Lawson and bassist Reece Britton join the lineup. Drawing their influences from the sounds of early Biffy Clyro, Yourcodenameis:milo, Hell is for Heroes and Brand New, Late Night Fiction share a passion for intelligent, dynamic and engaging rock music.
Following two live BBC Introducing sessions, and support shows with Grammatics and The Xcerts, LNF were chosen for a live BBC Introducing performance, on which the launched their debut single Horsefight.
2012 has seen the band already feature on tours with the likes of Twin Atlantic, Sucioperro and Flood of Red, run, WALK! and Dinosaur Pile-up. Zane Lowe recently interviewed the band and played the single Exits, Pursued by a Bear, which is taken from the forthcoming EP Polar. Produced by Bruce Rintoul at Lofi Studios in Glasgow, the release will be supported with UK and European tour dates in summer 2012, to be followed by the album Ethics in Autumn / Winter 2012.
