"Fake band" Threatin played a UK tour to no one

What’s all this about then?

Looks like they paid for Facebook likes, lied about ticket sales then played a show in the Bristol Exchange (£15 adv…) to zero paid customers.

Fair play to him

Fake news

Venues must be absolutely furious? I hope he also bought 400 or so pints too

Yeah, looks like a lot of the venues that got duped are independents which is proper shit.

Also Threatin is an almost admirably shit name for a band.

Seem like they should be supporting Vex Red in about 2003.

Did anyone listen to the song? It’s brilliant tbf. Remind me of Smashing Pumpkins. Think if they tour the UK again I’ll definitely try and catch a show.

Creasing imagining him hiring those lights and smoke machines so that he could stand in from of them alone and mime fake live footage. Genuinely fair play for the massive effort, even though fuck the guy for conning independent venues out of a proper nights revenue.
