The Submission

The Submission


Anthemic, buzzsaw punk rock of the purest kind, and matching the energy of the songs with furious delivery, The Submission are a catchy, energetic rock/punk band, with a radio friendly commercial appeal. Sure to get you dancing, raising your fists, stomping your feet and swinging your hair.


“... they proceeded in the next half-hour to remind me why I fell in love with punk rock in the first place. They played hard, fast (think Ramones-type tempo), anthemic, buzzsaw punk rock of the purest kind, and matched the energy of the songs with a furious delivary, led by talismanic frontman Richard Harris, who jumped, hollered, headspan, and not so much as strummed his guitar as beat it to within an inch of it's life… drummer Stu Cavell was a powerhouse at the back, guitarist Phil Morgan augmented the guitar assault nicely, and bassist Sadie Williams anchored it all with a bass performance that put me in mind of the likes of the Clash's Paul Simonon or Ali McMordie from Stiff Little Fingers… The Submission are my new favourite band. They successfully tapped into the original spirit of punk rock much better than 90% of more successful 'punk' bands around today…”
Excerpt from a review of 8th August 2009 at The Red Lion

We like to lead in with a little review of one of our performances in order to try give an honest opinion of what people have been saying about our band. We’re The Submission; we are a punk/rock band hailing from East Kent (Deal/Dover/Ashford). Started up in the summer of 2006, we’ve gone from strength to strength, consistently writing new material, and recording as much as possible out of home DIY style (this is mostly due to money constraints!). Influences by 70’s punk rock such as The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers and modern rock such as Foo Fighters, Greenday, Rancid, we’ve been able to gain a large fan base and deliver an energetic set which always gets the crowd moving and singing along. The band is made up of Richard Harris on Guitar/Lead Vocals, Phil Morgan on Guitar/Vocals, Sadie Williams on Bass/Vocals & Stuart Cavel on Drums/Vocals.
We’ve been lucky in our short time to play venues far and wide, large and small, alongside of small acts and larger groups. Our biggest achievements have been:
Supporting Stiff Little Fingers on their UK Tour
Playing Concrete Jungle Punk Festival in Camber Sands
Playing Big Bang VW Festival in Northampton
Playing Dock Rock in Dover to over 4000 people and being playing live on the BBC Radio Kent, also being introduced onstage by Nick “Topper” Headon (Drummer of the Clash)

Our future plans at the mo are looking exciting! Being offered support slots for Madness & Status Quo, hopefully taking on a few small tours across the UK and recording more in a professional recording studio.

We hope to come and play your venue and make sure every single person is entertained; we always aim to leave with new fans!
