No Fit State - Bio
Hailing from Leeds, UK, 2018 is turning into a whirlwind year for rock'n'rollers No Fit State. After signing a deal off the back of one demo, their debut single ‘On Your Own’ shot to the #1 spot on the prestigious New Noise playlist on Spotify, put there personally by new fan Allison Hagendorf (Head of Rock, Spotify) herself. In just over 2 weeks the debut single it had amassed more than 50k plays worldwide! Couple this with the accompanying music video premiering on the world famous Alternative Press and high praise from press and radio around the world, things were beginning to get tasty! After a chance meeting as session players, it was obvious the boys were destined to make music together. From one angle came Danny’s signature fuzz tone crunch from his Les Paul & Orange cabs, which was in turn met by Mike’s thunderous drums. All this drenched in Danny’s yearning, gritty vocals that ooze honesty and heartache. Mixing sounds from influences such as Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, The White Stripes, Howlin' Wolf and Black Sabbath to name a few, the boys are excited to deliver their take on music that sees them borrow from the cradle of the blues and rock’n’roll to put their own twist on it to present it to the world.
The rest of 2018 will see more singles and an album coupled with some exciting live dates. 2019 will see the band releasing more singles, the second album and a string of exciting tour and festival dates. No Fit State have arrived.

Already building a buzz in the industry and amassing fans old and new, the boys have called on all their experience from their days with their previous acts and are ready to give the people what they want. Formed in late 2017 and following up from previous releases on Warner Bros and tours with the likes of Supergrass, Kasabian and Twin Atlantic to name a few, the boys now form No Fit State, a no nonsense 2-piece modern day blues rock band that sounds familiar from the first listen, due to Yates’ instantly anthemic riffs courtesy of his NASA-worthy effects pedal board coupled with instantly memorable singalong lyrics drawing on everyday experiences.
Danny says of the song, “it’s about someone living on the edge, they thrive on playing with danger. Someone who wants that lifestyle so bad but then suddenly find themselves in too deep, on their own and can’t turn back”
