Missed that gig? Fear not, as they will be back out on tour from the end of August for a select 8-date UK jaunt that includes a date in Brighton on Thursday 8th September, courtesy of local promoters Love Thy Neighbour. This time they will be at the larger Hope & Ruin pub, which is also located in Queens Road. Purchase your tickets HERE or HERE. Support on the night will come from Gobstoppers and Ideal Living.

London’s desert rockers The Howlers have quickly identified themselves as one of the UK’s must-see live acts. Gaining praise from radio royalty including KEXP’s Cheryl Waters, RadioX’s John Kennedy and Radio1’s Jack Saunders, for their ferocious debut singleLa Dolce Vita, its equally energetic follow up Matador also pricked the ears of music supervisors, who selected the track for coverage on BTSport, SkySports, SoccerAm and more.

They returned in April 2020 with their warped third single, Badlands which is a ferocious and brooding statement about standing strong for what you believe in no matter the consequences. Doffing their caps to the genius of Dick Dale and Ennio Morricone, The Howlers consume and digest influences from surf and garage rock before spitting them back out with a confident snarl. Calling out like a battle cry over growling bass and primal beats, the chorus hook, “Now I fear the end has come, stand and fight don’t try to run” is a euphoric call to arms. Set against Spaghetti Western-inspired guitar lines, ‘Badlands’ is an aptly foreboding slice of doomy indie-rock with the potential to cause a mosh pit in seconds.
