Malibu Shark Attack To Support MC Lars In The UK.
Barely a week passes without more news from MC Lars regarding his UK tour this spring. You’ll have to forgive me though as things get more and more exciting. Lars has revealed his opening support for the headlining club portion of the tour will be Malibu Shark Attack. Who are Malibu Shark Attack? “Malibu Shark Attack are Rocky O’Reilly from Belfast, N.Ireland and Tribe One, from Atlanta, GA; He’s the reflective, insightful and witty Wordsmith rapping atop “post-new wave-prog-electronic-indiecore-synthpop” tunes made by Rocky.”
