Biography

United Fruit is a Glaswegian rock band.

United Fruit were formed in 2008 through a mutual love of discordant yet catchy
music. The four founding members quickly gelled and United Fruit’s sound has been steadily
evolving ever since, taking the traditional format of guitars, bass and drums in powerful
new directions.

Influences and comparisons range from the edgy rawness of Shellac, Fugazi,
Mudhoney and Sonic Youth to lesser known pioneers of heavier sounds such as Oxes, 80s
Matchbox B-Line Disaster, Daughters, These Arms Are Snakes, That Fucking Tank, Deerhoof,

Caribou, Ligament and Trail Of Dead. To date, United Fruit have also supported numerous
contemporary greats on tour, including Maps & Atlases, Die Die Die!, Future Of The Left,
Monotonix and Desalvo.

Their debut LP ‘Fault Lines’ will be released 30th May 2011 by the band themselves

The band’s debut EP “Mistress, Reptile Mistress!” was met by a
plethora of great reviews from many branches of the music press including The Skinny and
The List. Critically acclaimed appearances at a variety of festivals, including GoNorth,
Wickerman and the huge Rockness, have also earned them further enthusiastic column inches.
A variety of radio stations around Europe, including BBC Radio One, have played the band’s
material and a live session is scheduled for the aforementioned major network later this
year.

“A noisy glaswegian quartet that you need in your life. If you like it discordant and a wee bit nasty United Fruit is the name of the band […] Pretty damn good!”
