CO-PROMOTION WITH AUTUMN JAMS COLLECTIVE!!

KONG

Consisting of two thirds of OCEANSIZE, Manchester three-piece Kongs relentless sonic assault against all things conventional and boring gathers momentum this July with the release of their eagerly anticipated debut album, Snake Magnet on Brew Record on 13th July

Previous singles Blood of a Dove and Leather Penny blazed a trail for their unconventional sound and showcased their devastating ability to craft heavy, ferocious punk songs. These early glimpses promised much; and Snake Magnet does not disappoint. Bruising bass-lines, face-meltingly intense guitar riffs, beautifully fashioned soundscapes and hauntingly bleak and isolated vocals combine to form an album dripping with existential angst.

few press clippings..

"If you like Shellac and Fugazi, consider Kong the toxic shock syndrome version; they will more than likely please your ears but definitely give you a side of nausea. How do I know? Cos Ive got a copy of their hideously good debut album Snake Magnet playing right now. Check it out upon its release on July 13th or Ill send a scary baboon round to your gaff to set your eyelids on fire. Just messing. Ill send Kong NME

One of the best live bands in the UK right now Dan Carter BBC Radio 1

Welcome to Kong's world. It's a world of heavy punk and cellotaped faces (leading to pretty scary gigs). You'd be mad not to enter and you'll probably leave it madder still Artrocker

Manchester mob definitively kick the pop out of the punk with this raw and abrasive track with a hefty dose of Fugazi lurking beneath the surface. Kerrang

"Kong might just be the best band in Britain right now. Ferociously powerful, stunningly inventive, and equal doses of scary and humorous." Dirtyzine

CHICKENHAWK

Listening to Chickenhawk is the aural equivalent of being battered about the head and neck by a huge, feathered monolith whiles simultaneously being cosseted in gentle waves by an ocean of chicken soup. New EP released 3rd August on Brew Records.

Smairt. We're prolly the heaviest band on the bill on Thursday and by far the non-heaviest band on the bill here. Hopefully people will still like. :)

Need to get on listening to Kong, from what I hear they like to crush and they wear cool masks.
