Distorted, childlike, energetic, excitable, mischievous; quite simply Francobollo is everything you ever wanted for Christmas, but were too afraid to ask. The members, who met at school in Lund, Sweden, cut their teeth in North London warehouse parties, equally at home in intimate holes as they are on big festival stages; always oozing with joy; winning over audiences with ease. Most recently they’ve toured with The Big Moon, Marika Hackman and Coheed & Cambria, as well as playing major showcases and festivals across the UK and Europe.
Mercury Prize and Brit Award winning producer Charlie Andrew took great interest in the band after seeing them play live, making them the first signing to his newly established label Square Leg Records. ‘Long Live Life’ - Francobollo’s much anticipated debut album, which was released 14th July, was a testament as to how to capture the band's onstage spirit - which they're now widely renowned for.
With Long Live Life receiving widespread acclaim and support from radio and press in the UK, Europe and beyond, Francobollo are ready for more Good Times!
