THE DUKES OF BORDELLO YOU'RE ALL INVITED TO A WRECKIN' BALL

WHAT'S ALL THIS ABOUT?!

These Hi-Octane Rock n Roll trashcan troubadors from the wrong side of town deliver a punishing no frills approach and delivery with bone crunching guitars and gritty no nonsense vocals, yet are never short of whole hearted melodies and hook lines to die for!!! As fresh and arousing as anything out there - don't be confused - this aint rockabilly, its pure snot nosed rebellious Rock n Roll with its middle finger pointing firmly in the air - Lemmy would approve!!

WHO SAYS?!

Greetings all!!…Welcome to the world of The Dukes!! We are now 6 years in with this 3 piece and our highly driven eclectic/electric Hi Octane Rock n Punk n Rolling cacophony of glorious sound that we bring to you. Over the last few years we have been constantly spreading the word both here in the UK and out in Europe. Currently we are working on the finishing touches to our third album which will be the follow up to the critically acclaimed Skullduggery and Lowdown n Dirty releases !!

Any Aussie Rock is alright by me...spot the influences..🤘

Ingredients for a beautiful life: Family, My Dogs, Friends, laughter, Guinness, a good Pie!! Drums andddd Rock N Roll with the odd classic german motor thrown in for good measure...

Already, spots at Heretic Fest and Boomtown Festival have been booked in for 2020, along with a solid 2 month tour of the UK to promote the new album upon release and together with many more festival applications flying out weekly this can only be another full on year for the Dukes shows wise!! As ever a full on 100 per cent display of hookline drenched raspy sing a long anthems will always be delivered with accompanying guitar and double bass antics aplenty. We pride ourselves on consistently producing what is a very rare thing nowadays, a full on honest 100 per cent Rock n Roll show for all, that has been fully proven these last few years to span all genres and also to cleanse your very soul !!! Ladies and Gentlemen we present The Dukes Of Bordello !!

The barnstorming Dukes are back with a full on ballistic bang and the release of a new 4 track EP

"Deaf or Gory" which are the first new recordings for three years!

"Think I'm Turning Psycho" leads the way with two stomping revamped covers, the ever popular

“Strychnine” by Gerry Roslie and “Won't you make up your mind” by Coloured Balls,

finishing with a live version of a fans favourite “All In The Name Of Rock´N´Roll" from the “Lowdown`N´

Dirty” album which completes the set.

This is pure snot nosed rebellious Rock 'n' Roll with its middle finger pointing firmly in the air.

"Deaf or Gory" comes your way digitally and on CD through Undead Artists Records

and we are delighted to confirm a limited edition 7" red vinyl will be released through Sick Taste Records.

In a time of uncertainty the one thing we can always depend on is Rock´N´Roll and “Deaf or Gory” is a

much welcomed distraction.

So turn up loud and join the revolution!

LET'S 'AV A LISTEN THEN!!

Recent shows have seen us playing alongside such luminaries as Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind -The Wildhearts - The Main Grains – The Creepshow – Urban Voodoo Machine – Tylas Dogs D’amour – Voodoo Six – The Brains- Penetration and King Kurt to name but a few. Scratch away at the surface containing all the shabby shoestaring pretenders and there we are kicking and screaming our way forward!!! Diverse festival slots played include Hard Rock Hell (twice) and Hard Rock Hell Punk sandwiched between Chelsea and Anti Pasti in a rammed Stage Two area, and a glorious victory ensued!! The Dukes also headlined Stage Two at the first Rockin The Bowl Festival at Don Valley in Sheffield this last year as well as slots at The Bulldog Bash / Roadrage / Bedlam Breakout / Pompey Rumble and Rock n Roll Circus Festivals where we again headlined the Punk Stage!! The opening track from the last album ‘All In The Name Of Rock n Roll’ also peaked at No3 on Hard Rock Hells rock radio chart and lurked around all year being a favourite of the 75000 listeners and DJs eventually being the 21st most popular track played that year.
