New DRENGE Single ‘Backwaters’ Released 1st July – LISTEN NOW.




This year has already been an incredibly exciting one for Castleton duo Drenge. After emerging in many ones to watch lists at the start of 2013, the brothers Eoin and Rory Loveless have been busy going about fulfilling their promise – after signing to Infectious, they unleashed their debut single “Bloodsports”, a breathless and thrilling jolt of unadulterated punk rock which won them ardent supporters on radio, rabid fans at press and tours with The Cribs, Deap Vally, Fidlar and Temples, as well as slots at every festival that matters this summer.

Now comes “Backwaters”, the brilliantly swaggering follow-up – about 3 minutes of relentlessly exhilarating aural drama which few other new bands would be capable of producing at the moment. Even though comprising of just Rory and Eoin, the noise they create dwarf most of their peers on the musical landscape, creating a jagged, insouciant blast of good old fashioned rock and roll as rousing live as it is gripping. Backed with the equally heady and bracing “Necromance is Dead”, this single is as invigorating as it comes.

Make sure not to miss out on Drenge this summer, as they head out on their own headline dates across the UK and spots at festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Bestival, Glastonbury and more.
