LAST GANG IN TOWN present… THE BAR STOOL PREACHERS + THE FUCKIN’ GLORIOUS

THE BAR STOOL PREACHERS – The Bar Stool Preachers have taken the UK punk and ska music scenes by storm. Brighton’s ska-infused, street punk inspired six piece are that rare thing - a band whose songs stay in your head after just one listen and have you smiling throughout. Small wonder then, that since they formed in the summer of 2014 they have been attracting acclaim both for their optimistic, melodic songs as well as their incredibly energetic, powerful live shows. Their debut album - Blatant Propaganda – was received to incredible critical acclaim, and sold out 6 times globally (across 4 continents), and copies continually fly off the shelves.

“The most refreshing and honest sound we’ve heard in years” (UberRock Magazine, UK)

They are a band that demand social justice, a band that for whom things need to change. Not afraid to put their money where their mouths are, The Bar Stool Preachers are regularly involved in positive action events and charity work. So whether it’s sending their t-shirts to refugees suffering in Europe, or volunteering their time for local events (e.g. at soup kitchen’s or playing Crisis’ ‘Musicians Against Homelessness’), The Bar Stool Preachers are the real deal, and their fans know it.

“Easily one of the best new bands around right now. Ones not just to watch for the future, but to pay attention to right now.” (Mojo)

Whether Preaching to the masses on the streets, effortlessly captivating a sold out 15,000 capacity Olympiahalle in Innsbruck, headlining their own sold out shows or supporting bigger bands on their extensive tours, this a band you know you can rely on for a gig full of energy, enthusiasm and a collection of just straight up good music.

Described by British music magazine Vive Le Rock as having “all the energy of The Specials in their heyday,” this is a fair summary of a band who embrace the original 2-tone sound, whilst adding a fresh modern twist, and throwing in some reggae, dub and hardcore for good measure. With witty observational lyrics and a heavy dose of perfectly honoured punk influences such as The Clash, Rancid, and Cock Sparrer, it’s this crafted, genuine sound that makes The Bar Stool Preachers feel like such a breath of fresh air.
