Breakup Haircut's debut album launch party: PUNK DANCING FOR SELF DEFENCE is out on all platforms 15 July 2022 - come listen to it live!
After years of Current Affairs staving off their recording efforts, Breakup Haircut have lovingly cobbled together their debut album: fifteen rip roaring tracks of punk pop mayhem. Punk Dancing For Self Defence will drop 15th July 2022, giving you a week to familiarise yourself and sing along. It covers matters of the heart, matters of the stomach, the relationship between Bart and Millhouse, and most importantly, anti-capitalism.
Come listen to them play everything they’ve ever written (within reason), supported by a couple of their handpicked faves. There will be launch party-exclusive merch, including a super exclusive 7 inch that will only be available on the night - once it's gone, it's gone!
Breakup Haircut are a sometimes-pop-sometimes-punk band called Breakup Haircut (FFO: blink-182, Worriers, Mountain Goats). They got together for First Timers Fest 2019, a festival where every band debuts. They’ve since been playing shows, making pals and solving mysteries left and right.
BH’s music is defined by humorously relatable lyrics, boppin’ basslines, and fierce, melodic hooks - and some very nice things have been said by quite a lot of people about their first release, What Did You Expect? I Got It Off The Internet! - landing them slots with Big Joanie, Wales Goes Pop!, Bigfoot Fest, Loud Women Fest V, and more.
BREAKFAST WITH BEARS
Breakfast With Bears are an alternative rock band fusing their love of emo, math-rock, and all things punk. Through layers of driving electric guitars, groovy basslines, powerful drums, and melancholy vocals, BWB create a powerful and energetic alternative sound, aiming to make you dance while shedding a little tear.
As a band, they believe in unity and equality for all. With vocalist and lyricist Zach telling stories of growing up as a member of the alphabet mafia, issues around mental health, and fighting against the discrimination of all people - the band insist on ensuring a safe space for all of their shows.
Panic Pocket formed for First Timers Festival in 2017 and have since found themselves described as ‘lo-fi electro-pop heroes’. Expect catchy choruses and killer harmonies from songs about toxic relationships, bad bosses and unrequited online lust.
The Lexington is an 18+ venue - please bring ID!
