Bad Boy Chiller Crew launch "fans for food banks" drive
"The band have seen the all-too-real effects of extreme poverty in the UK"
Bad Boy Chiller Crew are asking fans to bring food to their gigs as part of their new "fans for foodbanks" initiative.
Mad up of Kan, Clive and GK, the trio from Bradford will be touring the UK this Spring encouraging fans to bring along non-perishable food items to their gigs so that they can be donated to the food banks of each city they perform.
Last week, fans came to their show at Gorilla, Manchester baring food to donate to their local food bank, kicking off the boy’s new scheme.

The donations made at their show in Manchester went to The Trussell Trust-approved Manchester Central Foodbank, with the trio personally dropping-off the items after the show.
A statement released on behalf of Bad Boy Chiller Crew said: “The band have seen the all-too-real effects of extreme poverty in the UK having grown up on estates in Bradford where food banks are a vital part of the community.
“The damaging effects of the pandemic have caused food bank usage to rise to an all-time high and the trio wish to make a difference, trialling this donation initiative at their recent Manchester show.”

The crew also released their latest album this month ‘Disrespectful’, a record already being enjoyed by heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in workout sessions.
‘Disrespectful’ has features including Local, Jordan McCann and Riton who they played alongside at The Lab LDN.
Bad Boy Chiller Crew go on tour starting April 13 in Leeds ending May 15 in Dublin with tickets still available to some shows here.
