English duo Drenge recently confirmed their self-titled debut US album release on July 22 via Infectious Music. The band recently won NME‘s award for “Best New Band” and will be touring across North America this July. Drenge will bring their blistering rock-n-roll to several cities including New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more. See full tour date information below.

Brothers Eoin (Guitar and vocals) and Rory Loveless (Drums) have become one of the UK’s most buzzed about new acts following a year of impressive festival appearances, including Bestival, Glastonbury, and Reading & Leeds, support slots at Hyde Park with the Rolling Stones and at iTunes Festival with Arctic Monkeys, and a coveted performance on veritable BBC show Later….with Jools Holland.
Drenge (Danish for “boys”) hail from Castleton, near Sheffield in the North of England. The Loveless brothers have an uncanny ability to tap into the insouciance, confusion and chaos of today’s generation while at the same time translating it into a vicious serotonin rush. Even though the brothers are barely in their 20s, they have accumulated enough confidence, vim and vigour in their music to sweep any discerning listener off their feet.
