The Blinders from Doncaster/Manchester are ''the fastest emerging UK band at the moment” according to the BBC. Together with Shame and Idles they're seen as pioneers of a movement giving faith in rock music again.
Their live shows are stunning, spectacular and unforgettable, playing sold-out shows across the UK and big fests like Reading. Their debut album is named best album of the year 2018, together with Idles' last album. Their songs are BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music singles of the week. This is a young, promising act who seem on the edge of great things to come and on the brink of the most thrilling and intense breakthrough for years!
With a wide range of musical influences from Nick Cave, The Fall, Stooges, Dick Dale’s surf guitar, Stones, Dylan, Killing Joke and John Cooper Clarke, The Blinders have created their own sound somewhere between punk and psychedelica. The album is loaded with historical, political and literary references.
''Louder Than War'' says about them: ''The freshest, most exciting band I have heard for a very, very long time. So good, so fresh and so vibrant. Their album is so explosive, so perfect, it defies any attempt at categorisation''. This will be one of The Blinders first shows in Europe after releasing their debut album, and they're coming exclusively over for Grauzone, so catch them while you can!
