The Blinders are raging, angry, hell bent driven on a mission to to stamp their punkadelic politicised soul onto mainstream consciousness. The band attempts to be in your face at all times, smelting loud and visceral political punk rock with enigmatic, psychedelic poetry and tones.

Their diverse, unique combination of raw music creates the ‘Punkadelic’ sound which forces the trio to give everything they’ve got in their frenzied performances, leaving only blood-stained instruments behind. One of the most exciting new bands to emerge try and catch them live in 2017. Following up their ‘Hidden Horror Dance’ EP from earlier this year, the trio – Thomas Haywood (vocals/guitar), Charlie McGough (bass), Matt Neale (drums/ percussion) – worked with renowned’ producer Gavin Monaghan at his Magic Garden Studio in Wolverhampton on ‘Swine’. Imbued with a ferocious, visceral punk rock energy that is as in-your-face as you could get, the track is dealt a further winning hand by a liberal dose of Yorkshire swagger by Haywood

Fellow 2017 ones to watch Cabbage recently tweeted about The Blinders: “this band should be championed by all. UP THE BLINDERS. Spectacular”, which is a pretty singing and dancing endorsement.

Originally from Doncaster but now calling Manchester home, The Blinders stomp like late stage Arctic Monkeys  a sound they quite accurately call ‘punkadelic’ with oodles of Link Wray rumble thrown in. They’re as unapologetically brutal and honest as Cabbage in their charged lyrics, and as they even admit in their official biog, they’re earning something of a reputation for “frenzied performances, leaving only blood-stained instruments behind”.

If that doesn’t get you out of the house, nothing will check their tour dates here.

The Blinders are a three-piece alternative group from Doncaster who are now based in Manchester.
