We’re thrilled to welcome Bob Vylan to Ramsgate on May 9th: one of the most vital and gripping punk acts of recent times, known for ferociously entertaining live shows!
Fans of Crass will feel right at home, with anger and defiance present, but also love and embrace…
“Without a doubt, Bob Vylan are the most important band coming out of the UK right now. They represent the real Britain, and their songs are sure to inspire a legion of young and old punks” – Gig Wise
There aren’t many bands that blur the lines between punk and grime as effectively as London duo Bob Vylan. Outspoken and engrossing in equal measures, their lyrics convey the angst and discrimination at the hand of a corrupt system while sonically it’s like “being pelted by a downpour of razor sharp arrows”.
NME 2019 saw Bobby (vocals and production) and Bobb13 (drums and spiritual guidance) generate significant hype with guest appearances on Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes Radio 1 session for Annie Mac, supporting Gallows at their triumphant comeback show at House of Vans and collaborating with Massive Attack alumni Tricky on his new album.
A North American tour with hardcore rapper Nascar Aloe and inclusion in the NME 100 Essential New Artists for 2020 list has kicked this year off in menacing style. Right now, singer Bobby is adorning billboards and posters worldwide as part of Doc Martens ‘Tough As You’ campaign cementing the North London duo as a global spectacle. It’s time to accept the fact that Bob Vylan are here, angry, loud, vital and it’s already too late to stop them.
“There’s a lot of artists working right now in the shredded space between rap and noise, but their take is a little different” – NOISEY
“Quickly leaps between hip-hop and frantic hardcore. It’s bracing, brilliant stuff” – NME
“You can hear the tension and release of early 80’s claustrophobic Crass punk to the lolloping addictive grime grooves to the revolutionary stomp of a Rage Against The Machine. Powerful and thrilling music” – Louder Than War
