Hadouken phenomenon on way to Wolves
12:12pm Thursday 12th April 2012 in Nightlife
LONDON electronica grime band Hadouken formed in 2006 and by the following year had become an internet phenomenon.
Their initial success was based on a double a-side release called That Boy That Girl/ Tuning In which NME called a savage, snarling work of genius.
The band reached number 36 in the UK singles chart with the track Liquid Lives while developing their live set with gigs around the UK.
In 2008 the band featured as guest DJs for Zane Lowe on BBC Radio One and continued to build on their growing reputation, reaching the top 20 in the UK album chart in early 2010 with For The Masses.
During this time, Hadouken earned a reputation as a powerful live act after an intense run of major festival appearances, including Radio One's Big Weekend, Carling Reading and Leeds, Underage and Relentless NASS.
After their own sell out headline tour, Hadouken joined forces with drum and bass giants Pendulum as the main support on their UK arena tour.
Last year Hadouken signed to the Ministry of Sound label and a new album is set for release later this year.
The first single from the album is called Parasite and is set for a world-exclusive play on Radio One tonight (Thursday April 12) at 7pm.
Hadouken will be playing live at The Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton, on Wednesday April 18.
