A veritable weekend chocker block full of American bands to kick start our Autumn season. First up we have the Dave Grohol backed HiFi Handgrenades – as the Detroit punk four piece were putting the finished touches to their debut album down in the Foo Fighter owned 606 Studio in walks none other than the aforementioned skins bashing rock demi-god. Immediately blown away by the band they were whisked across the US, Canada & Japan on tour with the Foo Figthers.

Their debut album Carry On is 10 tracks of an honest, no-frills band echoing the melodic sound of the Descendents and Dagnasty, combined with the attitude of mid-western greats such as ‘Stink’ -era Replacements and Naked Raygun.

Formed from ex members of The Paybacks & Suicide Machines the band support Alkaline Trio, Millencolin & appear at Reading & Leeds festivals during August & September 08 before they head out on their own UK tour with The Forum being just one of the stops.
