Camden Rocks & Rebellion Festival
We are thrilled to be able to finally announce, we are on the bill for Camden Rocks Festival and Rebellion Festival. These are both excellent festivals with really strong line ups, and add to our excitement over the other great shows we’ve been added to this month. We hope to see you there! Check out the flyer, designed by the talented Zoltan Kiss. We know there are still a lot of locations missing, but we promise to be touring extensively in August, so please watch this space. The release date for our Bad Man single and video is about to drop any time now, and the new tracks are nearing the mix stage. It’s all go <3 xx
After the high that was Camden Barfly with Camden Rocks Festival, we are delighted to announce we are in the brand new edition of Metal Hammer, cover date 29th March. To celebrate we have a ton of new show dates to announce. The Bad Man video is finally finished, and we will be announcing its release very soon! Next week we head back into the studio to finish off some new recordings too, so it’s all go! We hope to see you out at the shows, we’ve even got a one min promo! Check it out xx
We have artwork - thank you to Jonathan Singleton. We love it! Bad Man is soon to be released as our final single from our Rock Paper Scissors EP. It’s been amazing touring it, and we can only hope you can all remember the words. If not, we asked for them to be on the cover <3 We are also really happy to be heading back to Barfly on Saturday 19th March, thanks to the Camden Rocks team. We last played Barfly on our London headline show on the Love Hate Vampire Shotgun System Circus tour. It was a kick ass night and one of our first sold out events! Camden quite literally rocks! We hope you can make it down. We hit the stage at 9pm.
Happy New Year!
2015, what a year! Now that 2016 is here, we are really happy to announce we’ve got a load of new music getting ready to make it’s way out. We are back in the studio this month with James Lerock Loughrey, and finally our ‘Bad Man’ video is close to finished! Exciting times! The video has been a while coming, but we hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it. We’ve already got some really exciting shows on and in the working too, so we hope to see you there. Anyhow, keep an eye out for when Bad Man drops. We’ll be inboxing you with the news <3
What an amazing tour! Thank you!
We kicked off the second leg of our ‘Rock Paper Scissors’ tour in August, and wow, thank you! We loved every single show, all 17 of them. We have been really overwhelmed with your support, a good number of you heading to more than one show too. This rocks <3 We’ve got a load of pictures up on Facebook, including everything from the hometown smash at the Underworld Camden with Teenage Bottlerock, to stage invasion Hull and the very last show in the NE, it was all epic, electric. Thank you! We’ve had a great time out on the road, and now we are back in the studio, getting ready for the next record. Right now, it’s all about the studio until the NY hits.. Let’s do this!
We were totally over the moon to have the opportunity to play at Download Festival for the first time ever! Not only this amazing buzz, but when we arrived home, Download had announced a poll for the best bands on the ‘Dog’s Bed Stage’. We are delighted to announce, that we won this vote, alongside one other band. This means we will be getting some sweet new gear from Yamaha! We are thrilled, and thank you to everyone who made the show and voted for us. We were super amazed to have such a big turnout for a set that was only announced with hours notice. This rocks. You rock <3

I Don’t Need Therapy – Out Now!
ALEKHINE’S GUN – Out Now
Alekhine’s Gun is basically about standing up against the odds and staying strong in the face of huge adversities. We’ve all been there. Sometimes life has far more to throw at you than you are prepared for or willing to take on, but it’s just coming back from that and realising that you don’t have to harden up to the world to survive. It’s coming from the point of near break down and saying – stay strong, don’t let them change you and be true to yourself and you can still get through it. We wanted it to be that track that would empower someone to survive as who they are.
The name is taken from a chess move named after a powerful winning manoeuvre in a 1930s championship game. It’s a famous game where the queen and the rooks form a strong assault against the king. I used to be a chess player when I was younger. Actually I came 2nd place the NW England under 16s championship at the age of 11. The title seemed to fit on a lot of fronts.
The video is pretty cool too. The back-story to the video is not seen, but there is a girl who has love history with two best friends. Having cheated in the past, she marries one of the guys, her partner. However, on their wedding day, the groom kidnaps the bride and his best friend and takes them to the forest. The two guys then hold a chess match to the death – her ex lover has no choice because if he doesn’t play the girl will die. We didn’t want to trivialise the track. Basically people go through terrible things that we don’t see in their facebook feeds and twitter posts. The track is talking about those things and fighting through impossibly difficult circumstances. You don’t have to come out of those things stronger, but if you can just come through them alive then that is already a huge achievement.
I Want You Maniac – Released October 2014
I Want You Maniac is our Halloween single.. We’ve always wanted to put one out, it’s always been our rock Christmas. It was the right track for us to celebrate it with… It was awesome working with James in the studio again, and the video was a lot of fun to make as well… We envisioned it as a zombie version of pet cemetery..
“Produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / Sonic Boom Six / My Vitriol), The Kut -‘I Want You Maniac’ is an upbeat, grunge fused horror-rock track taken from the bands forthcoming EP. As a quick follow up to their ‘Make Up’ EP, it has been good news that the band is back in the studio so soon, especially given what spanned a near 3 year hiatus.”
‘Make Up’ EP – Released August 2014
It was such a long time coming with the EP. We made some mistakes and we didn’t release any music for a while, but we are setting it right now. We dedicate the Make Up EP to everyone who stuck with us and helped us get there in the end with recording new music. We certainly had fun breaking into buildings and rampaging over London to make Mario, and it was great to work with director Mike Gripz on the video. In the studio, producer James LeRock Loughrey was a legend to work with. We already knew about him from his work with Skindred, White Zombie and My Vitriol, so it was an honour to work with him on the new EP. It’s fair to say, 2014 was our biggest year ever and thank you to everyone who supported us in the MTV Brand New Poll and got us into the winning spots. We couldn’t thank you all enough. We were totally overwhelmed with the reaction to No Trace, particularly from Scuzz, Alex Baker at Kerrang! Radio and BBC Introducing. We’ve got more tunes on the way and are planning dates to get back in the studio very soon. Thank you to everyone who has been supporting us and fighting with us. #TEAM RAZORS – we love you!
