SKA-FOLK, Bristol band Mr Tea and the Minions will be bringing ‘musical mayhem’ to the Prince Albert pub in Stroud on Friday, November 22 at 8.45pm as part of their tour promoting their new album.

Mutiny draws on their many musical influences and is set to be unleashed on October 4, featuring a mix of high energy, melodic and exciting songs, mastered by industry legend, John Davis, who has worked with the likes of Led Zeppelin, Gorillaz and The Killers.

Tomo, who’s stage name was Mr Tea when he started making music, said: “We’re really happy with how the album sounds (and looks) and we feel it reflects our full power live show, our mission to spread fun and happiness whilst also having an eye on political themes.”

Forming in 2013, the sixpiece are united by a love of tea, energetic dancing, cheeky riffs, silly hats and cake.

Tomo, now the band’s guitarist said: “The name Mr Tea and the Minions was the classic silly ‘in joke’ that went too far.

“But it characterises the band well, as we certainly like a brew or two.”

Since then, their raucous ska-folk blended with full-fat Balkan beats and a squeeze of tangy dub has given them party-starting reputation, especially across the festival scene.

The band released their debut album in 2016 and have played hundreds of festivals and gigs across the UK, including festivals Glastonbury and WOMAD, and venues in Germany and Croatia.
