We have some cracking new music for you from York’s garage punk trio The Franceens. This time we are delivering their tunes to you through the medium of 7″ vinyl (with download code). Hopefully you picked up their debut album ‘Stepford Smiles’ which we released last year. This is a pre-order. We will be sending them out on the 15th so that the tunes will be in your ears in time from Christmas.
If you didn’t know already The Franceens are a 3 piece rock and roll band from York UK. They are known for their ferocious live shows, constant gigging, and their high-energy version of garage/rock and roll style music. They started in February 2013 and have been going strong ever since.
As you are probably aware, here at TNS we like to support bands that also put some effort in to supporting their local scene. Without people putting the effort in the scene dies. Well The Franceens fight for DIY, underground music and believe in supporting your local live music scene, whilst also trying to discover and support new bands from further afield. Check out Behind The White Door in York.
This is what Louder Than War had to say about The Franceens when they caught them live:
The Franceens are loud, this is feral beat music, but music played with discipline – despite their age The Franceens have honed their skills taking on endless tours of the UK and smash and grab raids into Europe; if you fancy some adrenaline coursing mayhem then you can do no better than catching The Franceens live – I’d waited way too long, its not a mistake I will be making again. Louder Than War
