Hailing from the English village of Castleton, brothers Rory and Eoin Loveless formed Drenge (taken from the Danish word for "boys") whilst in their mid-teens.

Initially with Eoin on lead guitar and vocals and Rory on drums, their raw grunge-inspired blues-pop sound was cultivated from the countryside landscape and their desire to escape from it. Their self-titled debut album was released a month after they made headlines for appearing in British Labour MP Tom Watson’s resignation letter from the Shadow Cabinet. After making their American television debut on the Late Show With David Letterman they released their second LP Undertow and toured it to festivals and headline shows across the world, playing with the likes of Wolf Alice, the Maccabees and Arctic Monkeys.

Now expanded to a live 4-piece Drenge return to Cambridge on a headline tour in celebration of the release of new album Strange Creatures.

 

"Drenge are a formidable, exciting live band, whose eruption of garage, grunge and space rock combines with Eoin’s Damned/Misfits-style crooning to turn the jam-packed audience into a heaving mass in minutes"  The Guardian
