Since The Lobotomies started making noise in late 2005 they have clocked up nearly 300 gigs including 3 European tours, countless tours of the UK and Ireland, as well as self-releasing a split album, 7 track EP and 17 track LP along the way. They have been lucky enough to share the stage with bands like:
Propagandhi, Strike Anywhere, Leftover Crack, MDC, Oi Polloi, Citizen Fish, Subhumans, Inner Terrestrials, SSS, Gama Bomb, Sonic Boom Six, the Restarts, Anti-Nowhere League, Arnocorps, Go It Alone, Protest the Hero …to name-drop but a few! The Lobotomies also managed to blag their way onto the main stage at ‘Rebellion Festival’ in 2008(the biggest independent punk festival in the world). The past 4 years of almost constant gigging has seen the band evolve and develop their own sound which combines all their punk, hardcore and even thrash influences to create a blistering brand of hardcore punk that appeals to anyone who lusts for furious, high-octane, adrenaline fuelled performances coupled with screaming indignance and raging energy.
The Lobotomies keep politics to the fore of their lyrical content, and try their best to operate along DIY and anarchist principles. This, combined with sterling alcohol consumption, has earned the band respect across underground scenes all over Europe.
The debut full length ‘’BIG BANG HANGOVER’’ is 17 tracks of fast and furious hardcore punk bursting with anger and discontent, a dark, heavy and anthemic assault on the senses that still maintains its melodic side. BIG BANG HANGOVER is out now, self-released with help from EHC and Pumpkin Records.
