Enola Gay (IE)

"Iggy Pop-approved ...this is no retread – their songs are powering them into vicious new places." – NME

“They have the aura of a band that should be filling stadiums.” – Fred Perry

"They are every bit as ferocious and uncompromising live as you might guess from their records!” - Steve Lamacq, BBC 6Music

Band Biography Belfast based Irish noise punk mob formed in late 2019. Venomous hip-hop-inspired vocals that are as uncompromising as the guitars are unforgiving, layered on a rhythm section that draws as much from left-field electronica and techno as it does from post-punk heroes of the late 70s. Enola wasted no time in establishing themselves as one of the next unique punk voices, having been listed in both NME and Rolling Stone's lists of acts to define 2022 along with headlining festivals and festival stages.

After releasing their acclaimed debut EP Gransha, they certified themselves as one of the hardest working bands about by selling out half of their debuting 32 date UK Tour, before supporting Therapy? on their arena tour. Over the summer NME quoted them being “one of the most-booked new acts for European festivals”, making them the most-booked New-Irish band of 2022, Enola disappointed only those turned away due to tents and stages breaching capacity. Absorbing crowds across Europe and dominating the UK before the release of a debut album, it is no wonder they have been hotly tipped by Iggy Pop, Jehnny Beth, and all who catch their now infamous high-energy sets of ferocious energy.
