Born in 2011 and nurtured on a diet of K cider, weed and skateboarding, Brighton-via-Cornwall trio Gnarwolves have been tearing through the UK underground, garnering stellar reviews since their inception. In the relatively short time they have been playing music, the three-piece have made the giant leap from a cult basement act to a genuine prospective phenomenon.

Due in no small part to their electric live shows, the band have been picking up fans left, right and centre with their deadly cocktail of snarling, in-your-face, punk urgency and bona-fide anthemic hooks. Taking in every corner of the UK, the band already possess an impressive touring CV with support slots to Funeral for a Friend, Lower Than Atlantis and The Story So Far in the past year alone. With shows notorious for mass arms-aloft sing-alongs and seas of crowd surfers, the band have proved to be a perfect festival fixture, already gracing stages at Hevy, Slam Dunk and the ‘I-was-there’ moment of the summer at this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals.

2013 saw the band release their latest EP, and the first under the dual Tangled Talk-Big Scary Monsters banner, Funemployed which sold out of its first pressing within just 24 hours. With a debut UK headline tour in December 2013 and whisperings of a hugely anticipated debut album arriving in 2014, the next year promises to see Gnarwolves’ stock continue to rise.
