After just over a year of cutting their fiercely sharp teeth on the Southern gig circuit (supporting the likes of Mclusky, Johnny Truant, The Futureheads and The Revs), Verbal Kink came exploding out of the tranquil shires of Oxford with this storming E.P ‘To The Rats…’

Full to the brim with ferocious riffing, intricate rhythmic interplay and hooks that will stay etched on your mind, courtesy of dual vocalists/songwriters Luke Dunstan and Andy Douglas. They have drawn comparisons such as Nirvana, At The Drive-In, Biffy Clyro and Kyuss whilst calling to mind old masters like The Police, The Doors and Thin Lizzy, in an aggressive, honest, passionate attempt to claw back rock from all things corporate!

“ We are looking at a band whose star is in its ascendancy”- BBC Oxford
“…A full-blooded barrage of noise”-Nightshift
“This isn’t just the bog standard crap you find littering London venues, but an
audio assault of the most welcome nature.”-Lyrically Speaking
