With Static Dress out on the road in Europe with Bring Me The Horizon, we caught up with frontman Olli Appleyard in the new spring issue of Kerrang! to reflect on their incredible success of late – as well as what’s to come in the near future.

And excitingly, the vocalist promises that this BMTH tour won’t be the last we see of Static Dress this year – in fact, as well as a very important appearance at Slam Dunk Festival in May, there will be new music, and they’ve got more arty stuff on the way.

“We’re constantly doing stuff for this band,” Olli tells Kerrang!. “We’re going to be expanding the art world of Static Dress in 2023, there’ll be new material and there’ll also be things for fans to get involved with which will allow them to be creative, in more than one way, which is really cool.

“We still want to up the live game as much as we can,” he continues. “The Slam Dunk shows are going to be a big moment for me. We’ve got plans in store for that and I can’t wait to make memories there, because I grew up working for the Key Club and the guys at the festival are my friends – so all told there’s going to be a lot of new stuff from us this year.

“Exactly how some of it is presented is something I can’t go into yet, but there are things to be excited about, for sure.”
