HRH Punk II - Anarchy in Sheffield 2020 announce first 18 bands

HRH Punk I sold out in record time and looks to be an absolute belter, next years will go up a gear and to make it all work we have some incredible early bird deals for the next 4 days.

The first tranche of bands next year include UK Subs – one of the pioneers of UK punk – formed in London in 1976 as UK Subversives. They had hit singles such as “Stranglehold” including a classic performance on Top of the Pops featuring the ever-present frontman Charlie Harper.

Tropical Fuck Storm share music video for new single “Braindrops”

Ahead of the release of their new album “Braindrops” on Friday, Tropical Fuck Storm keep it freaky with the new video for the title track, which makes its way from the race track to skeletor and Pikachu getting beheaded by magical swords and a clay wolf demon.

In the words of the band:
“Filmed at Nagambie Speedway, Sinjoh Ruins and Victoria St., Richmond, "Braindrops" is a song that asks if you need to feel cheap buying counterfeit Ray Bans in a Universe that is actually a simulation”.

Tropical Fuck Storm, the off-kilter, avant-psych Australian outfit, release their sophomore album, “Braindrops”, on August 23rd, 2019, via Joyful Noise Recordings.

“I’ve invented fake news as a genre of music”, TFS singer/songwriter Gareth Liddiard states on the new album. “Braindrops” overflows with compelling sounds and visions that reflect the often dark and fractured reality of life on planet Earth as we hurtle toward environmental and social decay at a frighteningly rapid clip.
