Formed in Bristol, 5-piece LICE have become one of UK experimental rock’s most inventive and ambitious outliers. Their second album *Third Time At The Beach* arrives 20th September on AD93 (Loraine James, Overmono, Giant Swan, Moin): a three-part epic exploring our struggle to better understand the world around us. Darting between minimalism, rock, techno and more, it hurtles through time and space: featuring a cast of astronauts, cavemen and dinosaurs.

In 2021, LICE released their debut album *WASTELAND: What Ails Our People Is Clear* to international acclaim via their own label Settled Law Records. A concept album employing minimalism, experimental rock and hand-built instruments, it received acclaim from BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 1, KEXP, *Gigwise (5/5), DIY (4/5), UNCUT (4/5) *and* The Quietus*. *Financial Times *declared it *“exciting, alive, packed with musical ideas,”* while *CRACK *called it* “a welcome lease of life for British avant-rock that plays with expectation at every turn.” *This led to a string of major festivals including Reading & Leeds, Green Man and End Of The Road, an extensive EU tour supporting Sleaford Mods, and headline tours in the UK and EU.  

LICE first emerged with 2018 Double EP *It All Worked Out Great Vol 1+2* on their champions IDLES’ own label Balley Records. Accompanied by a run of incendiary DIY shows in unusual spaces (including a 13th century crypt and an old railway station), along with early supports for Shame, IDLES and The Fall, they were tipped by tastemakers including BBC 6Music’s Steve Lamacq, *The Guardian *and *Loud And Quiet*, who declared them *“the most exciting, inspiring and genuinely deranged new guitar band in the country.”*
