Not content with putting the finishing touches to their forthcoming album and playing special gigs on their Fan’s House Party Tour, The Luka State are showing support for fellow upcoming bands in their new Youtube TV Show LISTEN TO THIS.

It’s also caught the attention of BBC Introducing’s Rob Adcock who said “It's an amazing idea. I wouldn't expect anything less from these boys. Quality to see bands helping each other. Do us proud!” The first episode for 2017 is a special BBC Introducing infused edition.

Lead singer Conrad Ellis said of the show “It's about doing the job MTV can't be bothered to do anymore, and doing everything we can to put rock & roll back on the agenda. There's amazing bands in every city in the world, but if you just listen to the charts you're only going to be spoon fed Katy Perry and Justin Bieber clones!”

Launched in November, a new episode is released every Wednesday at 7pm on The Luka State’s official Youtube channel and features 5 of the hottest new bands around. Already 10k music lovers are tuning in each week to find out who they should be listening to.

The guys will once again be self-producing the album, but with a little help from Chris Sheldon and Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Wilko Jonson, Idlewild).
