Making waves comes as second nature to Snapped Ankles, who since emerging in 2011 have bewitched fans with their stunning visual appearance and swirling, post-punk sound. To describe this band is to describe a sight one might previously think could only exist in a wild dream; forest creatures, doused in ghillie suits, playing hand-made instruments, strapped to logs – if there was ever a band who knows how to make a memorable show, it’s Snapped Ankles.

Having spread frenzied havoc across continents, the band is set to hit the stage at Stockton’s Georgian Theatre on Sunday 22nd May in support of their latest album, Forest Of Your Problems. Filled with ancient forest rhythms, electronica, electric guitars and maniacal beats, this music crackles with energy – it’s too hard to resist a dance along to their ecstatic post-punk colours. As a band, their immersive live performances have also become sites of promoting awareness for the destruction of our planets ecosystems and the importance of building a world that looks after and values all people and creatures. These messages are pulled together in a free and unconventional musical experience which will have audiences on their feet all night long.

Snapped Ankles play The Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Sunday 22nd May.
