Originating as an emotional outlet for frontman Ellis Acton-Dyer, Cardiff-based punk trio SHLUG have created their own brand of brutal, honest noise-rock. The rowdy three-piece, who describe themselves as “three peas in a pod that keep exploding”, released their debut single The Scent Of Roy Keane in June of last year. Satirizing toxic masculinity, the hardcore track is indicative of the band’s approach to music – raging, raw and full of passion. SHLUG spent the best part of 2022 gigging across the country, playing their first hometown headline show in May at Tiny Rebel Cardiff followed by lively performances in Bristol, Newport and Carmarthen.
