Shout Louder are pleased to announce that raucous aggro-folks Bootscraper are returning to the stage for two wild and exclusive shows!
Bootscraper are a 6-piece aggro-folk whirlwind from Leeds, who stormed stages across the country between 2008 and 2014, releasing two albums on TNS Records plus a split with Revenge of the Psychotronic Man. They’re known for their skilled musicianship, talented songwriting and rollicking live performances, incorporating elements of blues, balkan, gypsy and bluegrass into a foundation of angry punk.
After vanishing in 2014, Bootscraper have been sorely missed. They’re part of the rare breed of irresistibly-danceable heavy aggro-folks like Matilda’s Scoundrels, Roughneck Riot and The Lagan,, which is the foundation for the two unmissable dates they’ve put together.
Bootscraper will be playing two exclusive club shows in early November, one in the North and one in the South. Tickets are available now and there is absolutely no question that both shows will sell out. Do not hang around.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Friday 2nd November @ The Old Town House in Warrington
- Support from Matilda’s Scoundrels
- Saturday 3rd November @ The Palace in Hastings
For both shows you have the no-brainer option to buy your ticket in a bundle with one of these delightful limited edition t-shirts for £15 all in. Let’s face it, you already know you need one of these.

We’d lost a few members and it felt like the right time to call it a day for a while, we didn’t make a big thing about us stopping, we just stopped.
