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.

Also confirmed for HRH Punk II are Ruts DC – perhaps best known for their 1979 hit “Babylon’s Burning”, they bring their reggae-infused punk to Sheffield’s O2 Academy next September. Since their reformation in 2007 Ruts DC have kept busy with gigs alongside Alabama 3, Rancid, Buzzcocks, Public Image Ltd and many more.

Another alumn of the original UK punk scene, The Boys bring us their power-pop-punk which has influenced the likes of Die Toten Hosen and The Exploding Hearts. The Boys also enjoyed a new-found spike in popularity in Japan thanks to Japanese garage rock band Thee Michelle Gun Elephant covering their song Soda Pressing.

Ska legends The Toasters from New York have one of the more interesting band backstories – singer-guitarist Robert ‘Bucket’ Hingley was the manager of the NYC branch of comic emporium Forbidden Planet, and formed the band with other staff members. Their first-ever live performance was with Bad Brains in 1981.

From the punk class of ‘76 are London’s 999. They were signed to the United Artists label on the back of their debut single “I’m Alive”, and have released dozens of studio and live albums since, the latest “Emergency in Darlington” as recently as 2018. Still featuring 3 of the 4 original members 999 are a fitting addition to the Anarchy in Sheffield line-up for HRH Punk II.
