Scottish five-pieceSchnarff Schnarff are delighted to announce the release of their debut album, The evil that we do…, out now via Black Dug Records and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.
The band have skilfully constructed a sound that draws on influences ranging from metal to pop-punk and grunge to emo, a sound that has seen them pick up a well of support from the rock press and beyond culminating in their most recent video, the wonderfully animated ‘Flip The Cross’, premiering on Upset Magazine. The video is now available to watch on the Schnarff Schnarff YouTube channel.
On The evil that we do… Schnarff Schnarff perfectly illustrate why BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway described their sound as “staccato grunge pop” with tracks such as the aforementioned ‘Flip The Cross’, former single ‘This Is How We Get Some’ and free download track ‘Mario1-2’ all delivered with the impetus and snarl of bands like Biffy Clyro, Saves The Day and Taking Back Sunday. Myles Bonnar’s (vocals) lyrics and expertly delivered vocals are flanked impressively by Jamie Douglas (drums), Paul ‘Thunder’ Tracey (bass) Richard Douglas (guitar) and Andrew ‘Turtle’ MacLean (guitar) as Schnarff Schnarff really let loose, showcasing their ability to marry hooks and choruses to complex time changes, mighty guitar riffs and metronomic drum fills.
Originally hailing from Inverness, the band formed while they were all scattered throughout the UK, bonded together by a desire to go against the grain of the current accepted norm in music with the aim of producing music similar to the bands that influenced them growing up. After relocating to Glasgow they haven’t looked back since, continually creating music and playing live shows, before recording their album with renowned Scottish producer, Paul Savage (Mogwai, The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks).
Over the last few years Schnarff Schnarff have gained support from the likes of Radio 1 (Huw Stephens), 6 Music (Steve Lamacq), BBC Scotland (Vic Galloway), Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly, Team Rock, Rock Sound, Upset Magazine and Punktastic as well performing at festivals T in The Park, Belladrum, Wickerman, and Brew at the Bog.
The band will play a launch show at King Tuts on Friday 16th September with tickets now available to purchase via the band’s merch page.
