Ferris & Sylvester have announced the release of an exclusive flame red 12” double A-side vinyl of their critically acclaimed singles ‘Sickness’ and ‘Burning River’ for Record Store Day 2019 on April 13th. Watch BELOW.

The singles kick started what has already been an incredible year for Ferris & Sylvester. Delivering their most raw and powerful music yet they have received radio support across the board of Radio 1, BBC 6Music, Radio 2, Radio X and BBC Introducing – who also invited them to record a live session at Maida Vale Studios.

‘Sickness’ and ‘Burning River’ have clocked up millions of plays on Spotify alongside receiving high profile press support from the likes of The Independent, NPR, Clash Magazine and many more.

Regarding the release Ferris & Sylvester say, “We’re so proud to be getting involved with Record Store Day this year. We’re keen record collectors and we’ve always dreamed about bringing out our own vinyl. It is a real milestone. It feels amazing to actually hold it in our hands and spin it on our turntable! These songs show where we are as songwriters at this moment in time. There's something about printing them onto vinyl that celebrates that for us and everyone who has supported the music.”

The band have just finished their first ever UK headline tour, which saw them sell out the entire nine date run across the country – a testament to their rapidly growing and expectant fanbase.

As one of the UK’s hardest working live bands Ferris & Sylvester continue to play more shows across the world over the coming months.
