Sleaford Mods (SOLD OUT)

Forum Melbourne taken by duncographic

Blasting out of a deeply divided Britain with a ferocious combination of punk energy, razor-sharp lyrics and abrasive electro beats, Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods have become one of the nation’s cult bands of the moment: unapologetic champions of working class anger in a post-Brexit, austerity-era landscape.

Drawing on the politically-charged power of bands like The Clash, The Jam and Public Enemy, singer-songwriter Jason Williamson and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Fearn broke out with their 2014 album Divide and Exit, which showcased their minimalist punk-hop, leading to collaborations with Leftfield and The Prodigy and a high-profile fan in Iggy Pop. With a dedicated fandom and a reputation for explosive live performances, the band crashed the UK top 10 with their follow-ups Eton Alive (2019), All That Glue (2020) and Spare Ribs (2021).

On the back of their blistering new record, UK Grim, Sleaford Mods return to Australia this June.
