The band made their network TV debut earlier this year, performing ‘West Virginia’ on Late Night with Seth MeyersRolling Stone called them one of the best 30 Best Things they saw at Coachella this year and NPR: All Songs Considered’s Bob Boilen has hailed them as “one of the absolute ten best American bands in a live situation.”

Plus support from GNARWOLVES

Gnarwolves is a three­piece punk rock band from Brighton, UK. The group formed in November 2011 and after self­releasing their debut EP, Fun Club, began touring the UK and mainland Europe.

The band went on to gain support from national radio stations such as Xfm, Kerrang and BBC Radio 1, with DJ’s Mike Davies and Zane Lowe counting themselves as fans.

2014 saw Gnarwolves make a step up on the live circuit. Following slots with Blink­182 in Europe they made the unheard of jump from the smallest stage at Reading & Leeds Festival to the Main Stage in one short year, proving their electric performance carry just as much weight in front of tens of thousands of people as they do in clubs. In October the band set out on their first tour of the USA with The Wonder Years.

In 2015 the band racked up festival appearances at Groezrock and Download Festival, and shows with NOFX, The Movielife and Every Time I Die.

Plus support from APOLOGIES, I HAVE NONE

“Sometimes you just want to know you’re not alone,” sings Apologies, I Have None vocalist Josh McKenzie on ‘It’s Never The Words You Say’. The line, from their upcoming album Pharmacie, sums up the London, UK post-punk four-piece quite perfectly. The group has no specific message to convey, no agenda, and no story to speak of. Instead, the band explores the tolls of declining mental health on relationships and the human experience as a whole. Combining a grim outlook with layers of both rich imagery and brutally simplistic reality, Apologies, I Have None’s music paints a beautiful, harrowing picture of a misunderstood and too-often ignored struggle faced by so many in the modern world.

Toeing the line between post-punk and melodic hardcore, Apologies, I Have None will please fans of The Gaslight Anthem, Against Me, Balance & Composure, and The Menzingers. Pharmacie, the band’s second full-length, is a thematic continuation of previous works London and Black Everything. As a result, it cannnot be written off as just another record. Though certainly strong enough to stand alone, it deserves additional praise for serving as chapter three in the novel known as Apologies, I Have None.
