Well that’s it, glunk fans. The new album by The Sick Livers is written. Repeat, the new album by The Sick Livers is written! A 10 track affair that’s all killer, no filler. We’re extremely proud of these chorus laden and heavy riffed future live classics. Song title teasers shown in the pic above. Recording starts in January 2015 in the same DIY fashion as the last album. A spring release date is planned across UK and Europe, hopefully with the USA to follow suit shortly after. Proper excited, we are! In the meantime, fill your rock ‘n’ roll stockings with something from those Glunk Records reprobates. It’ll help fund the release. Browse here.
This Friday, 21st November 2014, sees us open for punk legends UK Subs and psychobilly cats The Coffin Nails at The Globe in Cardiff. It’s not often we play the Welsh capital, so get down early as we’ll be on shortly after doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets are available here.
Quick update regarding our sold out Christmas party at Newport’s Le Pub. Ginge is currently personalising your goodie bags by hand… so expect surprises! Thank you once again for snapping up the tickets in record time. Still blown away!
A flyer for a big post Christmas shindig in old London Town has surfaced (above). Honoured to be joining Norwegian punks Honningbarna on their first headline date of the UK at The Pipeline on 10/01/15. Word on the Whitechapel street is that it’s gonna be a little bit tasty, with what feels like half of Scandinavia snapping up tickets. To get in on what promises to be a hell of a fucking night, book here.
You can catch an interview with our lunatic frontman Ginge Knievil in Issue 30 of UK fanzine Lights Go Out, along with the likes of Inspiral Carpets, New Model Army and more. It’ll cost you a quid and is available here.
So, that’s it. After a turbulent couple of months in our personal lives (and you we thank you for your understanding), there’s gigs in the capitals of England, Wales and Ireland, a new record on the way, and we’re fucking wetting ourselves with excitement. Hope you are too! Tidy.
We look forward to blowing your festive socks off along with Science Bastard and Trigger McPoopshute on Saturday 27th December 2014. Best we get preparing those goodie bags for you. Tidy.
Well, what a night that was, as the cream of the UK’s underground punk, glam, rock and sleaze held hands to celebrate 5 years of the only music website that matters – Uber Rock!
A big shout out to the whole Uber team, you bonkers lot for losing your shit during our set, the hosts at The Dolls House, and to the dazzling display of talent in the shape of Dirt Box Disco, The Hip Priests, JD & The FDCs and Trigger McPoopshute.
Glunk Records head honcho Dom Daley (above) looks happy enough to get a sweaty set-list in his mitts. With four new future singalong classics previewed, we’ll definitely be stuffing well used five pound notes in his g-string to release the next album!!
Roll on October for more “Handsome” live dates in England and Wales. Tidy.
As the only rock ‘n’ roll website that matters, Uber Rock, turned 5 last week, we are just two weeks away from their free Uberpalooza party at The Dolls House in Abertillery.
We’d like to thank the team at Uber Rock for being tireless champions of what we do in The Sick Livers. Roll on 13th September for a really fucking strong bill of underground punk rock action as we delightfully share the stage with Dirt Box Disco, The Hip Priests, JD & The FDCs, and Trigger McPoopshute.
The campaign to #SaveLePub enters it’s final week and we have 10 tickets to give away for our show with Left Lane Cruiser on 18th October 2004.
