Drones - "Burnt Stitches"
Drones are a socially and politically aware punk band hailing from Surrey. Formed in early 2010, the band was spawned from the need of a decent music scene in their hometown, as well as need to make music that was lyrically conscious. Fed up of bands that sing about getting girls and nice haircuts, Drones' songs address social and political issues that are all too often overlooked in music today. The group’s infl uences derive from the likes of Rancid, Anti-Flag, The Clash, Rise Against, NOFX, Gallows and The Distillers. Fast-forward to summer 2011 and the band had signed with Lockjaw Records to release their debut album 'Mutiny', now available at HMV, iTunes and Amazon. With the album’s two music videos 'Shells Fall Pins Pulled' and 'Assassins Of Youth' each receiving thousands of views online, and a number of succesful tours promoting the record, Drones are set to pave the way for contemporary UK punkrock.
