NEWS: Catch Grade 2 on Tour December Onwards

UK punk band, Grade 2 dropped Graveyard Island in October. The band’s third album and Hellcat debut, was recorded and produced by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong and mixed by The Interrupters’ Kevin Bivona, The album offers proof that punk rock is still as relevant in 2019 as it was in 1976.

“Although we’re more than forty years on from when punk began, I actually think the times are very similar now to how they were back then,” says Sid Ryan. “The political climate today means that people see the worst in everything, which means that for us there’s a lot to write about. Everything in the country is pretty much turning to shit! There are certain parts of our record that would make sense were it released in 1976.”

The band has will be touring throughout U.K. and mainland Europe this December. For ticket information visit,
