Our Story

Proudly from Reading, UK, The Final Clause of Tacitus have been mixing up their own brand of funk, rock and groove-heavy riffs for only a couple of years, but have already gained national acclaim. They have played with the likes of Hactivist, We Are Scientists, Hed PE, Electric 6, DJ Lethal, Senser, 808 State and Crazy Town and continue to get booked all around the UK, bringing their energetic performances that make 80's aerobic workout videos look like exercise day at the retirement home.   

They recently won a Battle of the Bands from a pool of 64 selected bands and played main stage at Wilkestock Festival - voted the UK's best small festival. So far they have 2 x 6 track EPs released that received great reviews from many critics and radio shows including Kerrang! They are now in the middle of releasing their first full album, Antiquity, complete with full animated story for the whole thing. 

When asked about how they write they answered, “We write songs based on what first excited us about music. Bands these days forget that they are entertainers first and musicians second. When we go to a gig we want to forget ourselves and get lost in the moment so we hold ourselves to that ideal for our fans. Nothing less than that will do.”  

Remember why music excited you all over again, and let’s get funked up! 

People often wonder where the name comes from, but to this day TFCOT has never told anyone and apparently doesn't intend to...bastards.

The Final Clause of Tacitus started gigging in February 2016 with a energetic powerful live perfomance. You can use the contact tab to get hold of us or alternatively email tfcot99@gmail.com
