If you’re as sick of the winter blues as me, I’ve got some pretty great news for you; a band renowned for storming live shows full of exciting, chaotic, aggressive and awesomely sweaty wonderfulness are heading to Newcastle, just in time to blow those blues – and the venue’s roof – away. Sheffield duo Drenge are just the tonic, and their new tour – which pulls into Northumbria Institute on Thursday 28th March – sees the grungy blues pop duo, made up of brothers Rory and Eoin Loveless, extend to a four-piece in order to debut new songs from recent album Strange Creatures.   

Their third offering has been produced by long-time collaborator Ross Orton of Arctic Monkeys and M.I.A fame, and has been cryptically described by the band as a “nocturnal record. A psychological horror movie on wax. Warped hallucinations from mundane observations as you move through it…” If that doesn’t sound too terrifying a prospect, it’s certain that the live arena will be the perfect place to witness the band’s most considered album to date come spectacularly to life.

Support comes from Peterborough’s finest dark psychedelic rockers The Wytches, ensuring those winter blues will be a dim and distant memory come Friday morning.
