UNITED by a love of tea, energetic dancing, cheeky riffs, silly hats, and cake, Mr Tea and the Minions have been unleashing their colourful explosion of musical mayhem since 2013.

Their raucous ska folk blended with full-fat Balkan beats and a squeeze of tangy dub has made them party-starting festival favourites – and has inspired frenzied dancing all over the UK (and on a number of forays into continental Europe).

Mr Tea and the Minions have had almost 100 festival appearances including Glastonbury, Boomtown, WOMAD, Secret Garden Party, Shambala, Belladrum, Wilderness, Nozstock, Goulash Disko and more.

Their highly anticipated new album Mutiny was released on October 4 2019.

Their debut album, Tea Your Mind, was released in 2016, along with an anarchic video to the opening song, Coffee Shop Psycho. Most recently, they released a live video of Mutiny, which will be the title track of their new album.

Mutiny was recorded in Bristol last January. It was completed in July with mastering by industry legend John Davis (Led Zeppelin, Gorillaz, The Killers), accompanied by a spectacular array of artwork by Lee Hodges.

A ridiculous genre-bending video for their song Pandemonium has just been released as the first single from the album.

Combining folk, ska, rock and gypsy jazz, it’s been a highlight of their live set since summer 2018, and has had many a festival bouncing in a frenzy.

The spectacularly silly video sees the band channelling OTT glam metal rockers, self-absorbed 90’s pop stars, rappers and uncharacteristically undemonstrative classical musicians – in other words, everything but their usual bouncy selves.

Mr Tea and the Minions will be at Bocabar in Glastonbury on November 9 at 8pm. Tickets cost £7. To find out more visit redbrickbuilding.co.uk. To find out more about Mr Tea and the Minions visit mrteaandtheminions.com
