Dananananaykroyd unveiled as Sissys
Dananananaykroyd, the Glasgow-based posi-core proto-rock six-piece, return this week with three super low-key shows around the UK under the moniker Sissy Hits.
Having spent the past six months holed up in Scotland writing songs for their as yet unnamed second album, the band hit London, Cardiff and Manchester to play the material, before performing at a few select festivals and recording the long player.
Singer Calum Gunn said of the shows, "we wanted to play our new songs to people and get a great feel for them before recording them in a studio atmosphere."
"We had the benefit of a couple of years feeling our way through the songs on the first album, so we thought playing a few shows under a different name would be a great way to play a set of new ones, rather than a 'proper' Dananananaykroyd set."
Dananananaykroyd's festival appearances include the main stage at this year's Rock Ness, and a headlining slot on the Rock Sound stage at brand new Tunbridge Wells-based event, Hevy Festival. A full list of the dates Dananananaykroyd will be playing are below.
