Hailing from the working-class suburbs of Newcastle, Bare Roots combine 80s soundscapes with 90s soulful rock and roll. The band was formed by school mates Anthony Francis (vocals, guitar), Joe Anderson (bass) and Martin Corkhill (drums) who later joined forces with Ollie Petrie (guitar).
As well as selling out their debut headline show at Think Tank? Underground, the band have already performed at Newcastle festivals such as Hit The North and Stockton Calling. 2020 will be their second appearance at This Is Tomorrow.
