2013 Press release

The combination of blues versus their guttural emphatic harmonies kick your ears into touch in the opening collision of ‘High On...’ Influences such as MC5, The White Stripes, The Kills and a smattering of Stooges jostle for attention as the boys put pedal to metal. Punk and blues crash together with a fresh punk vibe. It’s raw, fast and dirty.

Just 1 guitar, 1 drum kit and screaming vocals – all turned up LOUD.

Their live shows are a white hot sweaty affair that has earned them an army of fans all over Europe and a reputation that’s second to none. They have toured with: Muse, The Kills, The Enemy and James Morrison
