Event Summary

Drenge
Pyramids Plaza, Portsmouth
Wednesday 03 April 2019

To coincide with the release of the new album Strange Creatures, Drenge have announced a UK tour for spring 2019, taking in eight shows.

Speaking about the new album, the band say “It’s a nocturnal record. A psychological horror movie on wax. Warped hallucinations from mundane observations as you move through it. Is that a school or a skyscraper on fire in the distance? Or maybe it’s just the ski village? You drive nearer, past roadside diners jammed with dancing teenagers, through Uncanny Valley, past the most unhygienic nightclub in the world. The stereo sounds like it’s going to fall apart at any moment. The car judders to a halt and all you can hear is the sound of the sea .”

Hailing from the English village of Castleton, brothers Rory and Eoin Loveless formed Drenge (taken from the Danish word for "boys") whilst in their mid-teens. Initially with Eoin on lead guitar and vocals and Rory on drums, their raw grunge-inspired blues-pop sound was cultivated from the countryside landscape and their desire to escape from it.

Their self-titled debut album was released a month after they made headlines for appearing in British Labour MP Tom Watson’s resignation letter from the Shadow Cabinet. After making their American television debut on the Late Show With David Letterman they released their second LP Undertow and toured it to festivals & headline shows across the world, playing with the likes of Wolf Alice, The Maccabees and Arctic Monkeys.

Price: £17.50
