Gender Roles – the Brightonian alt. rockers in all their absurd and pink-mulleted glory – are due to take their often heavy yet upbeat sound to the stage at Middlesbrough’s Base Camp on Thursday 21st October. If you’re looking for a good rowdy night out to get the party out of your system, they’re likely to be just your cup of tea.

The three-piece has been consistent in their loud, fun-loving sound, having released their debut album PRANG in 2019, alongside two EPs in the previous two years, followed this year by their new double A-side, Dead Or Alive/So Useless. In addition to this, there is no shortage of witty lyrics and wordplay to be found in their back catalogue, their somewhat poppier track Hey With Two Whys being a case in point.

This excitingly fresh group draws fans from a broad range of musical tastes, having played the Leeds/Reading festival in August, and being booked for next year’s Donington Download festival. Accompanied by their off-the-wall style, Gender Roles embody the hip and happening air of their native Brighton – the perfect band for a night out a bit different to most.
