'You can’t really go wrong with this record and I recommend checking it out.' - WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR BAND?
We are a punk rock band from Cardiff, South Wales who formed in 2017. Owen decided to start the band after watching an awesome After The Fall show in a tiny pub in Llantwit Major.
We are fans of NOFX, Bad Religion, No Use For A Name, Pennywise, Dropkick Murphy's, Against Me! and After The Fall, to name just a few. Our song writing is heavily influenced by these bands mixed in with some modern UK punk / hardcore influences too.
We released our first EP ‘Times Got Tough’ in 2017, which had the first five tracks we’d ever written on it, and then in 2018, we released our first single ‘From her lips to Jean-Claude’s Ears (The Disgrace).’ A reworking of an Against Me! track but directed at UK politics rather than the USA, although both continue to provide us with a bottomless well of golden inspiration for song writing.
We’ve spent the last year finishing off the writing and recording of our first album. The DIY ethos is important to us and are giving it as much of our time as we can, looking to release in 2019.
The album is a 17-track collection of songs about a bit of everything that has (or has had) an impact on our lives: family, friends, stupid stuff, fear of the future, politics, and dark times.
We can’t wait to share it with you
