Autonomy EP

Drenge are set to release new EP ‘Autonomy’ on October 5th.

The indie punk duo are back, with new song ‘This Dance’ ending a three year wait for new material back in May.

They have released two critically acclaimed albums, Drenge (2013) and Undertow (2015), headlined shows worldwide and toured with the likes of wolf alice, the maccabees and arctic monkeys. Heading into the studio with Ross Orton, ‘Autonomy’ – their first EP release – features four brand new songs.

“We are very proud to unveil our first foray into the Extended Player format,” say the band. “Recorded at McCall Sound on Sheffield’s own Sunset Strip with Ross Orton. Autonomy showcases some of our recent work, by way of verses, choruses, middle eights and all that other stuff you learn at BRIT school.”

“There’ll be a run of Robot-Coloured ® vinyl which will be about the size and shape of a supermarket pizza. On the cover you can see our temporary mascot, DR3-NG3, a scientific research robot nearing the end of his functional capabilities and pursuing a quest for validation. Made in Sheffield.”

New song ‘Before The War Begins’ is “half a love-song and half a hate-song”

‘Before The War Begins’ is taken from the upcoming ‘Autonomy EP’ released 5th October 2018.

DRENGE – ” Favourite Son “

Drenge have unveiled a new track from their anticipated second album in the form of the furious ‘Favourite Son’.  Following ‘Never Awake’ and ‘We Can Do What We want’, ‘Favourite Son’ is a pitch black punk assault which bodes well for their new album Undertow.

The LP was recoreded at McCall Sound Studio with Ross Orton and features new addition Robert Graham on bass. The band have said “it’s about love and loss but it’s also about reservoirs and moors and a really great Arabic cafe near the studio.”  order the album ‘Undertow’ to get this track as an instant download:

Drenge are an English two-piece grunge / post grunge band based in Castleton in Derbyshire. The band is made up of Eoin Loveless, on guitar and vocals, and his younger brother Rory, on drums  the band Drenge on David Letterman show earlier this week,

In many ways, it’s the same old Drenge. ‘We Can Do What We Want’ is still the sound of two cool-ass brothers making ridiculously grimy riffs that snake every-which-way like a punk viper. There’s even the obligatory war cry for a ridiculously dangerous/fun moshpit where most bands would slip in a middle-eight. But there’s something different this time round. it’s all centred around a demonically addictive stomping groove.

‘We Can Do What We Want’ all pivots on elephantine dirty hooks, and lyrics that tell the #haters to fuck right off, along with a newfound swagger that envelopes the whole track in lashings of confidence and boldness. It’s made the prospect of an upcoming new album ludicrously exciting,


Drenge announce their eagerly anticipated second album “Undertow”, due for release on Infectious Music on the 6th April.
The first single from the record, “We Can Do What We Want”, Drenge are Rory Loveless and Eoin Loveless. Undertow is the follow up to their acclaimed self-titled debut album, released in the summer 2013.

Written and recorded on tour last year, and between their hometown of Castleton and Sheffield, where the band now live, “Undertow” was produced by Ross Orton and, for the first time, features a third member, Rob Graham, playing bass on three songs; Graham joins the band for live shows. Drenge last week played their first live shows of 2015, two low key dates in Leeds and Manchester, leading The Guardian to call them ‘a formidable, exciting live band, whose eruption of garage, grunge and space rock combines with Damned/Misfits-style crooning to turn the jam-packed audience into a heaving mass in minutes.’
An NME Awards Show takes place in London in February, and the band today announce a full UK tour to begin the week of Undertow’s release. All UK shows are 14+ with tickets priced at £12 (£13.50 in London).
