Mez Sanders-Green is the frontman of Hull punk band, LIFE.
“Oi oi we’re LIFE, a community-driven band hailing from that 'oft forgotten northern city, Hull.
"People group us with bands like IDLES, Fontaines DC, The Fall and Parquet Courts, but we’d rather you make your own mind up and just escape into the grooves of our most recent album, A Picture of Good Health.
"The album means the world to us and the sessions were totally therapeutic, helping us deal with scars from our personal lives and put them to bed.
"We recorded with Luke Smith (Foals, Everything Everything, Depeche Mode) and it was mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Parquet Courts, Yak, Weezer). The album was BBC 6Music’s 'Album Of The Day', BBC Radio 1’s 'Album Of The Weekend', and was also one of the 6Music 'Albums of The Year'!"
“We had such an amazing year on the road playing shows across the UK, America and Europe, alongside some super fun festivals. We can’t wait to do it all again and share music experiences as a collective once more.
"We hope you are all safe and well and looking after one another at this time. Love is everything and music is our love. Please take care."
