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.
