“Blending hints of Primal Scream with the alluring dirt of BRMC, it’s an oddly suave piece of modern rock’n’roll.” – Classic Rock Magazine

Following a stint supporting iconic British rock band The Cult through February & March, Canterbury quintet Broken Hands will headline Birmingham Hare & Hounds on Monday 25th April, following the release of their latest single ‘Four’ on 25th March.

‘Four’ – a two-and-a half-minute tour de force of dirty riffs and high octane urgency – is the latest single to be taken from the band’s acclaimed debut album Turbulence.

The album itself, produced by the award-winning Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Killing Joke and Maccabees), recalls the superfuzz melodic rush of Queens Of The Stone Age or perhaps The Verve at their early, wigged-out best. The band count 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and XFM’s John Kennedy as champions of the band, and they have also received strong support from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart.

Broken Hands have supported the likes of The Rolling Stones and Black Sabbath, as well as playing various festivals, including BST in Hyde Park, Reading & Leeds, T In The Park and Sonisphere. They finished 2015 with an acclaimed performance at CMJ Festival in NYC and a hugely successful UK headline tour.

Plus support from DOLOMITE MINOR

Southampton duo Dolomite Minor serve up sleazy, raw rock’n’roll, laced with sweaty, head banging, tobacco stained riffs.

Taking inspiration from Led Zeppelin, Queens of the Stone Age and Nirvana with their fuzzy blues sound. Joe’s killer vocals and dark, intense riffs grab you by the scruff of the neck.

After appearances at The Great EscapeDot to Dot, T in the Park and Glastonbury, as well as tours with Darlia, Lyger and Baby Strange, the pair head out on tour with Broken Hands this spring.

Opening support comes from Birmingham four-piece Cold Ocean Lies, influenced by Smashing Pumpkins, Ride and Oasis, are making a splash in their hometown, selling out all of their last headline shows, as well as supporting the likes of Jaws and Spector. Their sound harks back to 90s grunge rock combined with classic British influences, culminating in an exciting live show which should not be missed.
