Additional Information

Punk rock may not be rocket science, but it's only the smartest and

sharpest bands that make the grade and stay the course.

Formed in London in 2009, Booze & Glory started life as a straight-ahead

salute to the rowdy street punk and Oi! bands of the late '70s and '80s

UK scene. Thanks to some of the most infectious songwriting to emerge

from the capital's mean streets for a long time, and with a heroic and

ruthless dedication to playing live, the band were steadily embraced by a

colossal international fan base, with debut video London Skinhead Crew

notching up in excess of 7 000,000 views on YouTube along the way.

Triumphant trips to Asia, South America, the US and pretty much

anywhere that would have them ensured that Booze & Glory's first three

albums - Always On The Wrong Side (2010), Trouble Free (2011) and As

Bold As Brass (2014) - became essential listening for fans of balls-out

and snotty rock'n'roll.

But far from resting on their laurels and sticking to a tried-and- tested

formula, Booze & Glory are now poised to reveal the subtle but

unmistakable evolution that their music and aesthetic have undergone in

recent times, the four-piece have come of age on album number four,

the appropriately-titled Chapter IV.

Instead, the rampaging, lethally melodic anthems contained on Chapter

IV are an exhilarating exercise in positive thinking, the power of the

people and the importance of seizing the day and living life like there's

no tomorrow (which, given recent events, may well turn out to be the

case!). With shades of everything from One Way System and Stiff Little

Fingers to the Dropkick Murphys and Rancid, Booze & Glory's all-

encompassing punk rock sound is a loud, proud and big-hearted antidote

to fake plastic pop stars and off-the- shelf punk posers. With songs

touching upon everything from the joys of unity to singer/guitarist

Mark's recent battle with cancer, all human life is present and correct,

with every last track sounding like a custom-built anthem for the

masses. There is evidence of instinctive musical growth here too, as

showcased on folk-fuelled opener Days, Months, Years and the riotous,

soulful clatter of Violence & Fear: songs with plenty to say and no

shortage of fresh ways to say it.

Newly signed to legendary Swedish imprint Burning Heart, Booze & Glory

are set to claim 2017 as their own. With plans to play over 150 shows

over the next 12 months, including a full month in the US and festival

appearances across Europe, the boys' mission to spread the ageless joy

and fury of pure punk rock looks certain to continue long into the future.

With a record as strong as Chapter IV behind them, the B&G crew have

nothing but glory on the horizon. Always an international band, with past

and present members hailing from Poland, Ireland, England, Sweden and

Greece, the current line-up all possessing migrant blood. An international hard working

brigade with aim and sight on the future. Up the punx!
