It’s all gone a bit MPF mad here at Shout Louder HQ. There are so many great bands that we don’t know where to begin! To help you make the most of the festival, we have spoken to a handful of the bands we’re most excited to see. Even if you’re not coming to MPF, there’s plenty to learn and enjoy.
We will be posting every other day in the lead up to Manchester Punk Festival. Check out the full series here.
Band Spotlight: Wolfbeast Destroyer
Wolfbeast Destroyer are one of the heaviest bands on the years bill of this year’s Manchester Punk Festival. They are a supremely loud, enthralling D-beat hardcore 5-piece from Boston, near Lincoln. We’re quietly partial to a bit of crust here at Shout Louder so we strongly recommend you check them out if you want your bones rattled and your blood boiled.
We spoke to Craig and DTL (guitars) to learn more.
Why should people come check out your set at Manchester Punk Festival?
We try to keep things heavy, we try to keep things fast and we have a stupid name. Why wouldn’t anyone want to check that out?
What should people do to prepare for coming to see you?
I don’t think it will take a lot of preparation, just have a drink and come party with us.
Which bands are you most looking forward to seeing at the festival, and why?
Speedozer and Regret, both great bands.
If MPF was the olympics, which festival sport would you win gold in?
Is eating chips a sport?
Propagandhi or Iron Chic?
It’s a mixed bag some of us like both, some of us like one and some of us like none. Hope that clears things up.
If you were on a plane that was about to nosedive into the ocean, what would you put on your iPod for the crash landing?
Outlaw Cagabond by Wolfbrigade. Banger! Or anything by Disfear.
What other big things are coming up for Wolfbeast Destroyer this year?
We have gigs with Discharge, Doom and are heading back to the studio soon so who knows. Maybe we will nosedive into the Atlantic ocean listening to Wolfbrigade.
Manchester Trivia: Which do you dislike the most and why – Oasis or The Smiths?
100% The Smiths, Morrisey is a massive twat.
At Manchester Punk Festival they are playing in Rebellion at 18:05 on Friday – make sure you check them out! Consult the MPF Clashfinder for more details.
