Emerging Hull proper-punk threesome, Left Ahead have released their EP ‘Dancing In Hell’ via Warren Records in conjunction with local punk label, Hull’s New Breed. You can now watch the video for ‘Kicking The Walls In’ from that EP below, exclusively on Soundsphere magazine.
Speaking on the new EP and the band’s general inspirations, vocalist Ash comments:
“I read an article by Dorian Lynskey on the New Statesman’s website in conversation with The Manic Street Preachers that made me and Jack furious. The article states that: “The circumstances that created the Manics no longer exist. Nor, thinks Wire, does a certain kind of angry, razor-brained, working-class voice.” – I say he needs to come to Hull, there are plenty of angry, intelligent working class voices here in the music and arts scene. However, I’m glad I read the article, the initial fury turned into creative energy and it spurred on our writing. Regarding politics, Bradfield stated that: “he doesn’t know how it feels to be young and discontented.” – Well it’s like this, we’re pissed off and we’re going to make a fucking racket about it.”
