Including Date At The Anvil In Bournemouth

The Hyena Kill

After the sublime reaction to The Hyena Killís critically acclaimed debut album “Atomised”, the band have packed up their bags, crammed the gear into the van and are hitting the road for 6 very special and “moshtastic” live dates around the UK.

Drawn together by a shared love of Queens of the Stone Age, Deftones, Helmet and Tool, Dobb and Blundell announced their arrival in 2012 with the release of the explosive Gush EP, four tracks of searing, coruscating distort-pop which exploded like a nailbomb into the subterranean noise scene. Since then ñ viaís 2014ís Scrape My Bones EP and two further singles, Suck It Up and last year’s thrilling double-header Still Sick / Blisters ñ the duo have refined, honed and focussed their fierce alternative rock sound into something harsher, leaner and altogether nastier. The result is Atomised, an unflinching, brutal dissection of what it means to be skint, frustrated, alienated and adrift in modern Britain. From tense, wired recent single Crosses (“Cut it up and sell us cheap, crosses for eyes and sunken cheeks!”) to the sparse, bruised, hypnotic title track (“These broken hearts are never far from where we are”) via stark, snub-nosed titles such as Your Loss, Choke and Erase You, itís a compelling snapshot of a young band over-dosing on volume, adrenaline, distortion and a shared passion for venomous, visceral, breath-stealing rock ëní roll.

The Hyena Kill

“The album isnít a concept album,” says Dobb, “but it’s got a lot of darkness and pain in there, coming from frustrations and insecurities and anger with past situations and day-to-day life. The bands who influence us most are uncompromising and honest and unafraid to let their emotions show, and hopefully that same attitude shines through in what we do.”
