Prepare to be enthralled by the raw sound of Honeybadger as they unleash their latest single, 'Gone Cold'.

Describing themselves as “high energy garage punk”, this Brighton-based trio is making waves in the rock scene with their distinctive blend of punk, indie rock, and psychedelia. Composed of brothers Eddy (guitar, vocals), Joe (drums), and their old school friend Luca (bass) Honeybadger draw influence from iconic bands such as Drenge, Them Crooked Vultures, Pretty Vicious, and The White Stripes.

Their music is characterised by gritty guitars, impressive riffs, and rough-around-the-edge vocals, all driven by the immediacy of pounding drums and tantalising basslines. Honeybadger has captivated audiences with stellar live performances, including most recently headlining The Alternative Escape Festival 2024 as well as previous appearances on BBC Introducing and BBC Live Lounge. They have garnered support from Wyatt Wendel's 'The New Rock Show' on Planet Rock and achieved a top #15 spot on the Kerrang! Chart with their single ‘Spell It Out’.

Esteemed voices like Steve Lamacq of BBC Radio 6 and CLASH Magazine have praised the band highly, "Melding together punk, indie rock, and psychedelic tropes, they’ve become a go-to live outfit, playing shows across the country".

Honeybadger’s new single 'Gone Cold' encapsulates their undying passion for music, featuring every riff and beat as a testament to their raw talent and relentless drive. With their rapid rise to success and glowing endorsements from industry powerhouses, Honeybadger is poised to make a lasting impact on the music scene. ‘Gone Cold’ is out on all streaming platforms now.

"Colossal in their sounds, Honeybadger have this distinctly unique take on a classic punk flavour which has elevated them to new heights on their new track 'Back Home'"

“When we play on stage the energy of the crowd is what we focus on, it's all about letting out your frustration, getting amongst it and having a good time, you never forget a honeybadger show.”
