Mazes’ music is fuzzy and grungey with plenty of melodic guitar riffs. The London-based band’s songs may be short and sweet (averaging around two minutes), but they have great impact, especially when played live. Mazes’ vigorous debut album A Thousand Heys was released in April and the band is scheduled to play a number of dates in the US in October. Listen closely for the witty lyrics amid the guitar fuzz, and let the infectious rhythms of the bass and percussion get you dancing. It’s definitely worth catching them whilst they’re on this side of the pond.

Mazes’ US tour with Sebadoh! takes in the following dates:

October 25 Brillobox, Pittsburgh
October 26 Magic Stick, Detroit
October 27 Southgate House, Cincinnati
October 28 Radio Radio, Indianapolis
October 29 Mojo’s, Columbia
October 30 Schubas, Chicago
October 31 High Noon, Madison
November 1 The Mill, Iowa City
November 2 400 Bar, Minneapolis
November 4 Headliner, Louisville
November 5 Hi Tone, Memphis

November 7 40 Watt, Athens
