Few bands have the bravery, determination and self-belief to survive times as tough as Phobophobes have endured, pretty much intact. And even fewer have the talent to rebuild themselves with such creative voracity, making some of the most alluring, unsettling, inventive and cutting-edge music of the age – the sound of The Velvets, Wire, The Cramps, The Monks, Leonard Cohen and Country Teasers fed through the foul filters of South London. No matter what fate throws at them, knocks that would destroy less hardy bands, Phobophobes are too strange and special to be beaten.

Plus support:
GURU: At times delivering a profound staccato bark, others a full-on yell over a mighty ensemble of guitars and drums; vocalist Tommy Cherrill is on fiery form. As his bandmates amalgamate influences from barbed post-punk to crushing psychedelic riffs, Cherrill’s fury and disdain is both invigorating and imposing in equal measure. 
– The Line of Best Fit

ELLiS⋆D: As a generation falls deeper and deeper into despondency over a seemingly non-existent future, ELLiS·D takes fear, hope and a touch of melancholy to create unapologetically honest, and at times frantic lyrics. Taking inspiration from wherever it may be found, the band explore an extensive list of styles whilst staying true to their raw and personal roots.
