Formed in London in 2009, Booze & Glory began as a straight-ahead salute to the rowdy street punk and Oi! bands of the late ‘70s and ‘80s UK scene. Thanks to some of the most infectious songwriting to emerge from the capital’s mean streets for a long time, and with a heroic and ruthless dedication to playing live, the band were steadily embraced by a colossal international fan base, with their debut video “London Skinhead Crew” notching up in excess of 13,000,000 views on YouTube along the way. Triumphant trips to Asia, South America, the US and many other corners of the world ensured that Booze & Glory’s first three albums – “Always on The Wrong Side” (2010), “Trouble Free” (2011) and “As Bold as Brass” (2014) – became essential listening for fans of all-out rock’n’roll.
But far from resting on their laurels and sticking to a tried-and-tested formula, Booze & Glory are now poised to reveal the subtle but unmistakable evolution that their music and aesthetic have undergone in recent times. The four-piece have come of age on album number four, the appropriately-titled “Chapter IV”. Always an international band, with the current line-up all possessing migrant blood, Booze & Glory are proudly anti-racist, but they are also not a band concerned with shouting about politics. In 2019 Booze & Glory will celebrate their 10th anniversary with a new album which will be released in September.
