The hotly-tipped outfit get to work...

The hotly-tipped VATICAN DC release their debut EP ’WE CARNIVAL’ in April – and they’re playing CLUB NME shows to celebrate.

The band have already won both the BBC Radio 1 show by Zane Lowe’s ’Fresh Meat’ competition, as well as triumphing on XFM show John Kennedy Unsigned.
