HANK is a four-piece band based in Norwich, UK. A cathartic combination of alt-rock, grungy riffs and math-rock undertones, HANK plummet into the depths of personal chaos, love and anxiety. Having only sprung into fruition in April 2018 – HANK have released two EPs and garnered press & radio support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Zane Lowe, The Line of Best Fit, Fecking Bahamas. Bristol’s other socially-conscious alt-punk band The St. Pierre Snake Invasion bring their high energy, ferociously snarling wall-of-noise stage show to Norwich. Their second album “Caprice Enchanté” released on 21st June has been preceded by two singles – “Casanovacaine” and “Braindead”, both of which premiered on the Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P Carter to great acclaim. Formed in Bristol in 2011, TSPSI have shared the stage with the likes of Refused, The Bronx, Retox, IDLES, Trash Talk, Jamie Lenman, and Fucked Up, and played at festivals across the country like Truck, Dot To Dot, ArcTanGent, Y Not, 2000 Trees and many more. Written over the course of 2-3 years, ‘Caprice Enchanté was recorded at Rockfield studios in January 2017 by Sean Genockey (Reuben/Shame/The Who/Jamie Lenman) and with an additional 6-8 months of sessions at Black Dog Studios in London. The result is their most ambitious and accomplished work to date. Rad Pitt love salt beef bagels with mustard. They appreciate David Lynch and his exceptionally barmy approach to filmage. Mostly they like big riffs and truly despise Piers Morgan. “one of the most important and special bands to have graced our county in recent years” – Graeme Mac, BBC Introducing in Suffolk.
