Noise punks Enola Gay will play Newcastle’s Head of Steam and Sunderland’s Independent (on Sunday 6th and Monday 7th March respectively), at the beginning of their maiden UK headline tour which will see them nation-trotting across 29 venues in just over a month.

Formed in late 2019, the Belfast quartet burst onto the circuit with the blistering debut single The Birth Of A Nation in July 2020. Driven by lacerating bass and howling guitar, the rap-inspired vocals placed the Black Lives Matter movement front and centre. By the time of their second release, Sofa Surfing, it was clear Enola Gay are a band that hold no punches; meshing together elements of post-punk, noise rock, rap and industrial sounds in a melting pot of furious noise.

The arrival of their debut EP, Gransha, saw them slice through deep-rooted societal issues head-on, conjuring up murky, thunderous and dense soundscapes. So far, their discography has provided a reliable punch in the face, so this imperative slab of Irish punk shouldn’t be missed when they visit the North East.
