Bugzy Malone drops new track & announces headline tour


HE'S HIT the Top 10 with his past three EPs, but Bugzy Malone’s career is set to reach new heights with the August 17 release of his debut album B. Inspired.

After launching the project with Warning, Bugzy now amplifies anticipation for the album with a double-shot of activity: not only has he dropped a new track and video in the shape of Drama, but he’s also announced his biggest headline tour to date.

“‘Drama is what my life could’ve been like if I didn’t turn things around,” says Bugzy. “There are other ways out than crime. I’m now in a place where I can speak to a lot of people and my whole ethos is switching on the belief switch in people's heads. If people take inspiration from that then it's priceless.”

Backed by production by Diztortion (Stormzy, Kano), the track’s spaghetti western-style introduction and searing guitar solo from Alastair O’Donnell (Tinie Tempah, Krept & Konan) infuses Drama with a cinematic music video, put together by Bugzy and his regular collaborator Connor Hamilton.

Inspired by Bugzy’s love of the gritty Netflix crime drama Narcos, the Northerner's video was filmed at various locations in Dubai.

Having already claimed his crown as The King of the North, Bugzy’s set to take his gospel further afield with the biggest tour of his career. The ‘B. Inspired’ tour is the biggest headline tour to date by any grime artist and will see him perform to a total of 38,000+ people. It includes two x 4000-capacity homecoming shows shows at Manchester’s Mayfield Depot.
