With punk sounds, this band from Liverpool have been providing us with anthems and with their new addition of a killer drummer, they couldn’t be better. Their new release “Bang Bang Bang” had me so frustrated in the best way as I was humming it all after hearing it. It was stuck in my head but I wasn’t complaining one bit. The insanely catchy lyrics mixed with confident and moshable rhythms is the perfect concoction for an absolute banger – I can’t stop playing it. Another brilliant single to maintain their repeated releases of simply good music. Because who doesn’t love this generation? Just after supporting the incredible Crawlers at the sold out 02 academy Liverpool, they’re coming to Nottingham to perform for us. Why not party with them?
