Noise rock quartet Spectres were formed in Barnstaple, North Devon in 2011. After moving to Bristol a couple years later they self-released a few EPs and singles on their own Howling Owl label, before joining forces with Sonic Cathedral for 2015’s Dying, their incendiary debut that they promised would “snap people out of their comfort zones. We want our noise to smack the spoon out of their mouths that is feeding them the warm diarrhoea that is served by start-up PR companies”.
The resulting largely positive coverage everywhere from NME to Drowned In Sound, The Times and the Guardian to BBC Radio 1, comparisons to Sonic Youth and Loop – not to mention people fleeing their gigs, hands pressed tightly over bleeding ears – would suggest they went some way to achieving this aim.
Spectres latest album Condition was released 10th March 2017 via Sonic Cathedral.
Spectres play Hare & Hounds Birmingham on Tues 25th April 2017, with support from Mutes, Simple Eyyes & Ghosts of Dead Airplanes. Tickets available here.
