Be the first to see Matilda’s Scoundrels new music video for ‘Jousting Crowd’, the first single from their new EP ‘The Devil’s Dues’.
Matilda’s Scoundrels are returning the scene with a rousing new single Jousting Crowd. This is the first track from their upcoming EP The Devil’s Dues, due out on TNS Records on February 26th.
Shout Louder were lucky enough to get the first glimpse of the new material, and we wanted to share it with you before its release. With the fitting chorus of ‘bring back the jousting crowd again’, it’s the soundtrack we need for when the lockdown’s lifted.
Remember gigs? The video cobbles together live material with all the memorable bits that happen between the gigs themselves. Reminisce about sleeping in vans, using ice lollies to fix hangovers, Pooh sticks and drinking at people’s houses after gigs.
Knife Club are the most mysterious punk band of 2020 – teasing live shows and recordings without ever revealing who they really are. If you’ve missed the hype, we posted an article speculating about their identity (sorry folks: we were in on the joke the whole time).

Watch this video right to the end, and read the interview below to find out exactly who Knife Club are and what they’re all about!
You can finally tell the world who you are! Introduce yourselves for us.

Be the first to see the hilarious music video for the first single from Haest’s upcoming album ‘Anomie’, due out on TNSrecords in January.
There’s nothing we love more than a proper DIY punk rock music video, and today’s exclusive is just that. Haest are gearing up to release their debut album Anomieto the world – due out on TNSrecords on 10 January 2020.
The video for the first single I Thought I’d Walked In Shit But It Was A Child’s Mitten is a low-budget classic, featuring Snuff/Southport’s Simon Wells as a lairy estate agent. Would you buy this house?
In their short existence, Haest have been running roughshod through the UK DIY punk scene, clocking up two EPs, various compilation tracks, a European tour and a ton of support slots with the likes of The Dwarves, The Adolescents, Pears, Birds In Row and Clowns. The band have developed a sound of their own; mixing influences from hardcore punk, doom and noise rock. Their debut album sees them spread their wings even further, creating a truly unique piece of work.

Be the first to watch the new lyric video from Danish melodic-punks Fabled Mind.
Shout Louder are proud to bring you the second single from new Danish punk rockers Fabled Mind.
Fabled Mind released their first single Before The Slaughter to a great reception in August. The band is the brainchild of frontman Dion Finne, who’s been crafting their exceptional full-length album for months. Although new to the music scene, they bring a modern melodic twist to RX Bandits-style fast punk, using combined experience from their other bands (including Shout Louder favourites Forever Unclean).
“Entangled is my attempt to write an uplifting song,” says Dion Finne, on the latest single. “We all face situations and times in our lives where everything seems hopeless and inconsequential. Some people are stuck in a toxic relationship, some hate their work life and 45% of the Danish population feel lonely. Loneliness is a powerful and gripping feeling that can provoke anxiety and force you to avoid social situations in the belief that people don’t need you and that you don’t need them.

Famed UK punks debut the film of their last ever live show, featuring footage of their huge line-up of TNSrecords favourites: Faintest Idea, Pizzatramp, Nosebleed, Wonk Unit, Matilda’s Scoundrels, Casual Nausea, Rising Strike, Bobby Funk, The Domestics, Sounds of Swami… and a lot of shenanigans.
Shout Louder are proud to premiere The End of Everything: a film documenting the final live show of legendary Manchester fast-punks, Revenge Of The Psychotronic Man.
The farewell show took place at Rebellion, Manchester, on 8 December 2018, and marked the end of a long career of stupidly fast DIY punk rock.
The gig sold out four months in advance, and featured 14 bands: one for each year the band had existed. The line-up was announced shortly before the show, and the running order wasn’t revealed until minutes before each set, setting the scene for a day of chaos.
This film was made by Mark Richards and it features most of the bands who played, including Nosebleed, Pizzatramp, Wonk Unit, Matilda’s Scoundrels, Casual Nausea, The Domestics, Rising Strike, Bobby Funk, Sounds of Swami and more. It also includes extensive highlights of Revenge’s final emotional set, plus the once-in-a-lifetime Revenge ‘All Stars’ band, featuring a carousel of ex-members and associated musicians.
The sound was recorded by Julian Wallinger, with additional mixing by Simon Short.
