Stateless are one of Leeds' most exciting bands, currently on course to explode all over the music world.
The band fuses a conventional band set-up of vocals (Chris James), bass (Justin Percival) and drums (David Levin) with the electronic mesh of turntables (Kidkanevil) and live programming (Rod).
Stateless recently finished recording their self-titled debut album with producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian), who passed on some tracks to the mighty DJ Shadow. Immediately a fan, Shadow enlisted Chris to co write and sing on two songs on his new album The Outsider.
Stateless are no strangers to the stage. Live highlights have included supporting Kosheen on their UK tour last year and playing the New Bands stage at V Festival, Homelands festival and a massive UK tour supporting DJ Shadow. As a live act, Stateless provide something different and special, as numerous glowing live reviews have attested to.
