Lauren Tate from Hands Off Gretel said, “We are so happy to finally be announcing our UK tour dates. Before Covid-19 we were celebrating the release of our Angry EP. We only played a handful of shows before it got cancelled and then it was re-scheduled three times! Soooo … the Still Angry Tour will go ahead this year and we can’t wait to scream it out with you all. It’s been TOO LONG!”

The tour will pick up from where the band left off, promoting the release of their Angry EP. The three tracks on it, She Thinks She’s Punk Rock n Roll, Don’t Touch and Bigger Than Me are all live favourites that fans had repeatedly asked the band to release

Talking about the EP at the time, singer Lauren Tate said; “It was great to get into the studio and record some tracks that didn’t make it onto the last album. The Angry EP captures the energy and aggression of our live shows, which is something we totally wanted to do after releasing the album, which has a more polished sound. The EP is honest and raw, just how punk rock tracks should be, and we know these are favourites with our fans so it’s great to finally release them”.

For the forthcoming live shows, the band will be adding a couple of new tracks to the set that they’ve worked on post-lockdown. Being located in Bristol, Barnsley and Scunthorpe meant the band went twelve months without seeing one another due to the pandemic. As Lauren says, “It’s been great to finally get back in the rehearsal room and start playing music again together.”

The band are vocalist and guitarist Lauren Tate from Barnsley, drummer Sam Hobbins from Scunthorpe, bassist Becky Baldwin from Bristol, and guitarist Sean Bon originally from Ireland.
