The story is simple...after a chance meeting being the
caddies at a pitch and putt golf tournament in 2015, Vigilantes met at the 19th
hole and decided to form a band. In 2020, they were chosen to be part of the
unique festival experience of BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend in isolation and on top
of that, Mike Skinner a.k.a The Streets selected them to be one of his picks
from the BBC Introducing uploader.
Championed by BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens & Phil Taggart, Vigilantes are continuing the British tradition of taking American sounds and stuffing it with classic British tone. They do it so well that they have been placed on Radio 1's Best Of BBC Introducing playlist and had repeat airtime on Amazing Radio & Radio X to boot. Noted by Fresh on the Net’s Tom Robinson as ‘On a mission’, Vigilantes are known as one of the hardest working live bands in the UK circuit by putting every fragment of energy into live performance. Due to this, Vigilantes have deservedly shared stages with the likes of Circa Waves, The Sherlocks & Fickle Friends.
