Having released debut LP 'Giftes 1&2' earlier in the year, the band describe themselves as "fucked up shape-shifting band with lots of punk-ethic goo spattered on top". This Mike Patton infused, dirty political power-house of a band have garnered a ferocious live rep, having recently toured with Belfast's And So I Watch You From Afar and packing out key shows at The Great Escape/Camden Crawl. With a busy summer of festivals across Europe including a sold out 2,000 Trees, their jaw dropping live performance is guaranteed to leave the crowd in both shock and awe.
Four young men from just outside Birmingham, Romans have managed to make a name for themselves in their short time together, due to encapsulating live shows packed with energy, and explosive songs that announce the arrival of a band as young as they are accomplished. Additionally, the group stamped their authority on 2012 early on with the release of their debut EP, 'Cravatte Nere'.
WE ARE KNUCKLE DRAGGER
Emerging from the underground scene, We Are Knuckle Dragger have just released their Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, Helmet) produced debut album, 'Tit For Tat', to follow up on their previous two EPs, which saw them receive wide spread support from BBC Radio 1, Kerrang!, XFM, 6 Music, Scuzz and other national and local press.
Having recently supported the likes of Meshuggah and Dillinger Escape Plan this Newcastle trio have learnt from the best. Holding an underground ethos We Are Knuckle Dragger are now looking to bring it to the next level.
