A philanthropic cause close to the boys’ hearts, the band have seen the all-too-real effects of extreme poverty in the UK having grown up on estates where food banks are a vital part of the community.

Bad Boy Chiller Crew have launched the Fan For Foodbanks initiative in partnership with the The Trussell Trust approved Manchester Central Foodbank.

"Imagine if Ed Sheeran or the Rolling Stones did this across their world tours, I reckon they’d have fed a few people.

"Let’s hope other big artists catch on and start doing this too - we’ll have started something that could actually make a massive difference in the world. Imagine that!”

Fans will be rewarded for their donations with limited edition signed posters and a promise from Bad Boy Chiller Crew to match all monetary donations made at the shows.

The Bradford rappers have also announced that their tour shows at the city’s O2 Academy on 13th and 14th April are now completely sold-out.

Fans who missed out don’t need to worry though - a third night has just been added on 12th April, with pre-sale tickets available for 24 hours from 4pm on Wednesday, January 23 at Crash Records, as part of a special album and ticket bundle.

Tickets are general sale from Thursday, February 24 at 4pm.
