Kill The Action pre-saved single now available

Unfortunately today's debut EP launch of this Gozitan band had to be postponed due to bad weather and whilst we wait for a new date here's some information about Krejon:

Mario and Manuel, brothers and guitarists, are the original members and founders of the band. They drew inspiration from instrumental guitar music and embarked on a journey of writing instrumental pieces and songs together. As their repertoire grew, Christopher became a valuable addition to the band, initially as a percussionist and later as the drummer. Subsequently, Alan joined the group, filling the role of the bassist. Thus, in mid-2021, the band solidified into a four-piece ensemble. Their inaugural performance took place in December of the same year. Following a series of successful gigs, the band contemplated diversifying their sound by incorporating additional instruments. Several months later, keyboardist Steve joined Krejon, completing the lineup.

News In Brief

  • Sludge/stoner band Lady Lizard have just wraped up recording their debut full length album, which follows their self-titled EP released in October 2018. Recordings were done at Cornerhouse studios with Daniel Bezzina (Slit / A Broken Design) and Luke Grech (Relikc).

More info regarding release and gigs in the days to come.

  • In the meantime Luke has also just released tunes under the moniker Greck:

'Avocado Macchiato' feat. Rob Chapman can be viewed here while Garden Groove can be seen here.

  • On Friday 19th May The Areola Treat released yet another new song titled 'Deserter', which can be listened here.

A fun-loving punk rock/garage rock anthem. Rhythmic bass, distorted guitars, female vocals that remind one of Siouxsie Sioux and inspired by The Saints. Having a penchant for destruction, our clumsy subject is both a mascot for freedom and a loser in the modern world. But the deserter is set to be ahead of the game.
