One of the most popular bands in modern British punk rock, Booze & Glory, have announced a release date for their fifth album.
The four-piece, formed in London in 2009, started life as a straight-ahead salute to the rowdy street-punk bands of the late 70s and early 80s.
Embracing skinhead fashion and working class ethics, they have built a huge fanbase, both in this country and abroad, helped by their multi-national line-up.
In the last three years the band have enhanced their already impressive CV by playing nearly 300 shows around the world, including a high-profile five-week North American tour with Dropkick Murphys.
They have also appeared at Hell Fest in France,
Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas and Rebellion Festival in Blackpool, while last
year saw them win the Vive Le Rock Award for Best New Band, as voted for by the
Singer Mark is the only original member left, and the line-up these days is completed by guitarist Kahan, bassist Chema and drummer Frank.
Their style has changed over the years from straightforward street-punk/Oi! to a more mature sound, and their latest album Hurricane will be released on 18 October via their own Scarlet Teddy Records.

Recorded in Sweden at Soundlab Studios, the new album was produced by Millencolin guitarist Mathias Farm and promises to be the biggest, boldest and most explosive Booze & Glory album to date. It will be backed by a full European tour, with support from Giuda and Analogs.
With the addition of piano and organ to the band’s trademark sound, the new songs still carry a strong message of positivity, believing in yourself, finding common ground and standing up to racism, nationalism and hate.
The band have announced a very special 10th Birthday Bash in London on 2 November at The Electric Ballroom in Camden, their first headline show in the capital in more than three years.
Besides a decade-spanning set from the headliners, the all-dayer features appearances from ‘friends and family’ including Roy Ellis, Giuda, Perkele, The Filaments, The Baboon Show, The Analogs, Liam Marr and Riskee & The Radicule. Tickets are on sale now HERE.
