STUPIDS-RARE LONDON SHOW!
JOHN COFFEY (NL)
w/ Yards (feat members of Ghost Of A Thousand & Astrohenge) & Blasted (feat members of Winnebago Deal) *free show*– London, Old Blue Last
Since their inception in early 2009 the five friends from Utrecht, Netherlands that make up John Coffey have been creating a storm as a force to be reckoned with, on both their 2009 debut album ‘Vanity’ and its subsequent 2012 follow up ‘Bright Companions’. Their incendiary mixture of punk rock, screamo, metal and modern hardcore all served up with a big shot of rock ‘n’roll bravery has earned them a fearsome live reputation as performances at Groezrock and Speedfest festivals are testament to. Further tours with the likes of Cancer Bats, A Day To Remember & Parkway Drive only helping to cement this reputation further. ‘Bright Companions’ was produced by Grammy award winning Pelle Gunnerfeldt (Refused, The Hives) and Jag Jago (ex – Ghost Of A Thousand) at the legendary Grondahl Studio in Sweden and has lead to the band being described as :- ‘A Storm Is Coming, and it comes directly from the Netherlands. John Coffey sounded the attack with a charming post-whatever-bastard of rock and punk, hardcore and plenty of chaos”. The quintet are currently preparing for the release of their third, as yet untitled album.
So if you’re a fan of The Bronx, Ghost Of A Thousand, Refused or Every Time I Die you’d be wise to check out John Coffey bring the live chaos!
