We’re very excited to announce the release of ‘Taxman’, the first single from Bruise Control‘s debut album ‘Useless For Something’. Their album is also now available to pre-order from the TNSrecords webstore.
Sitting somewhere between 00’s indie and 80’s hardcore, Manchester-based loudmouths Bruise Control have carved themselves an unlikely name in DIY punk. In their wake they’ve left a handful of self-produced releases and a notoriety for chaotic live shows. In true DIY fashion, the album has been mixed and produced by the band’s guitarist Niall Griffin keeping the core sound as true as possible.
‘Useless For Something’ is available on vinyl (both transparent and transparent red varients), CD and tape. The first 50 orders will also get an exclusive photo print with the album.
Few debut albums are as eagerly anticipated as this one and for good reason. With a tour, endless runs of merch, and an Albert Hall performance of a lifetime supporting Australian rockers Amyl and the Sniffers already on the band’s CV, 2023 is looking to be a big year for Bruise Control.
