YORK punk garage rock duo ...And The Hangnails launch their third album, Rut, at The Duchess, York, tomorrow night.
Guitarist and singer Martyn Fillingham and drummer Steven Reid are promising to “stir up trouble” on a record that delivers a grown-up punk rock sound against a backdrop of searing lyrics and their distinctive use of distortion.
The soul-piercing energy associated with their gigs has been set down on 13 tracks of epic noise that include new single You & I and a guest appearance by Junk drummer and Wolf Solent guitarist Danny Barton on the duo’s first collaboration, Bleeding Nose.
...And The Hangnails have received regular radio airtime on BBC Introducing and have supported the likes of The Damned and The Jim Jones Revue. Rut arrives tomorrow in the wake of past albums No Time For Naysayers and Bare; all three are available from andthehangnails.bandcamp.com
