Originally formed in 2004, this hard-living, hard-playing trio have since drunk their way through countless gigs and tours all over the UK and mainland Europe with over 500 live shows under their belt. Their 2009 debut album, Make Pigs Smoke, received rave reviews from Big Cheese magazine and many more, while 2012’s Shattered Dreams Parkway lead to a session for the BBC Radio 1 Punk Show with Mike Davies.
Sharing the stage with the likes of BAD RELIGION, NO MEANS NO, DISCHARGE, SUBHUMANS and many, many more over the course of their career, the band are no stranger to tearing up a room of rowdy punk rock fans. In fact, bass player and vocalist Andy Davies is one half of the team behind TNSrecords and is also part of the collective responsible for the mighty Manchester Punk Festival, where the new video was shot by Mark Richards and Julian Wallinger.
