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).
For their self-titled debut album they worked 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, playing the New Bands stage at V Festival, the Lovebox Weekender, 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. Singer Chris James also joined DJ Shadow on his monstrous worldwide 2006 tour.
