We’re pleased to welcome Brighton post-punk band DITZ: well known for their hectic and unpredictable live shows, influenced by the hardcore punk and noise rock of the 80s & 90s…
For those who came to Protomartyr and Priests, this will be right up your alley!
“One of the most vital bands to emerge from the burgeoning UK punk scene” – Gig Wise
DITZ have been anything but predictable.
The quintet has released music irregularly, starting with a three-track EP in 2016 and then following on with a series of singles beginning in 2018. After the release of the EP, the band played constantly in their hometown and in London, honing their craft and growing together as a unit. The band waited almost two years before hitting the studio again to record their follow-up, ‘Seeking Arrangement’. The track attracted the attention of the UK’s independent press with features and praise coming from DIY, Loud and Quiet and So Young.
As well as the media fuss, the band received plaudits from some of the UK’s premier new punk bands, IDLES and Slaves. DITZ followed this track up with ‘Gayboy’, a more serious track about the self-perpetuating anger of bigotry. DITZ recently released ‘Total 90’ (Alcopop! Records) and a special reworking of Peaches ‘F*ck The Pain Away’.
The music the band produces is often obnoxious and urgent, but with an acute sense of dynamic. Vast arrays of guitar effects infuse the punk sound with a more experimental approach, which reaches its freeform apex at the end of the band’s set.
“DITZ shows are unpredictable, to say the least, and audiences are at risk of being wrapped up in gaffer tape or showered in chewed up flowers” – Loud and Quiet
“Undoubtedly, they are on the cusp of something seriously special. Watch this space” – Gig Wise
“DITZ’s ability to shine a light on vicious mindsets and behaviours in our society, plus their knack for developing tension in their music, is commendable” – The Line of Best Fit
