Isle of Wight punk band, Grade 2, have announced a performance in Brazil later this year.

It comes in a week their van was broken into in Milan, Italy and a suitcase, laptops and hard-drives stolen, as well as a passport.

The band is currently on tour across Europe and say they are in contact with the authorities.

A GoFundMe proved such a success, that donations have now closed.

Meanwhile, the Ryde group, made up of Jack Chatfield, Jacob Hull and Sid Ryan, will support Ska legends and ‘Lip Up Fatty’ hitmakers, Bad Manners, who are the headlining at São Paulo’s Upfront Festival.

Also on the line-up for Upfront Festival are Brazilian bands, Skamoondongos, Inocentes, Sapo Banjo and Maga Rude.

Taking to Instagram to share the news, Grade 2 said: "We’re coming to Brazil for the first time ever in October!!

"Catch us in São Paulo with Bad Manners!" 

Following their European tour to the beginning of July, taking in France, Switzerland and Italy, Grade 2 will also take to the stage at Blackpool’s Rebellion Festival, in August.

Fellow Isle of Wight band, Jo Jo and the Teeth, are also performing at Rebellion Festival.

In 2023, Grade 2 supported rock legends Guns N Roses and made the UK Indie charts with their self-titled album.
