Premiere: The Roves – ‘Fixing To Burn”

The Roves are back! The Roves return with ‘The Big Silver’ EP following on from the success of their last single ‘Hey Little Man’ which cracked the door open at 6 Music and found fans in Gideon Coe, Iggy Pop, Bobby Gillespie, Stephen Pastel and with radio DJs from Madrid to Austin. The Roves were back at KONK studios in London to record and mix the four songs on ‘The Big Silver’ and working again with engineer Josh Green they have pushed their sound and songwriting further than on any release so far.

The EP will be released physically as a 12” vinyl & Digital. The lead track ‘Fixing To Burn’ precedes the EP release and has a new video accompaniment produced by Tom from the band which premiers exclusively here today!

The ‘The Big Silver’ EP is out on July 3rd 2020. You can pre order today from and you’ll get ‘Fixing To Burn’ to download now. All sales from the release will be donated 50/50 between the Music Venue Trust: Grassroots Music Venue Crisis Fund #saveourvenues and Black Lives Matter
