Brooders – at Long Division on 1 June

Leeds three-piece Brooders release their third single MORE on Friday 31 May, spreading their riff-based chaos further and wider.

Vocalist Adam Bairstow said:  It speaks of a time of uncertainty. It looks at life from two sides of the coin and takes the listener on a journey fuelled by distress and tension. MORE presents all of these frustrations and stresses in the format of a conversation and wraps them in a sinister veil. The song is one of our more aggressive offerings in the sonic highways of grunge, and it’s a statement of the need for more.”

To celebrate the release of MORE, Brooders will play a short run of shows before heading back to the studio to work on their next psych-grunge offering:


Sat 01 WAKEFIELD Long Division Festival | BBC Precinct Stage @ 1pm

Fri 21 LEEDS Hyde Park Book Club | Headline

Sat 22 YORK Fulford Arms | with Cowgirl


Sun 21 SHEFFIELD Tramlines Festival | Café Totem @ 6pm
