Following a recently SOLD OUT show at The Albert in Brighton, Honeybadger get ready to release 'WAKKA'

Brighton based three piece garage punk band Honeybadger, released their latest single ‘Back Home’ on 26th July 2023. Featuring heavy guitar riffs, melodic solos and Eddy’s gritty grungy vocal the track emphasises the frustration about lifes minor inconveniences. With recent features on Kerrang!, Record Of The Day, Music Week, New Noise and CLASH, things are lining up well for these angsty teens.

Honeybadger was formed in 2014 by brothers Joe and Eddy and friend Luca. The Brighton based garage punks regularly gig in and around Brighton. Previous single ‘Cold Wind’ featured on Nels Hylton’s ‘Future Alternative’ Show on Radio One. Influenced by the likes of Drenge, Them CrookedVultures, Pretty Vicious and The White Stripes, they class their music as rock with heavy punk and grunge influence.

“a punchy piece of songwriting that blends their instinctive live energy with some studio finesse. It darts and weaves, keeping you on your toes, before landing a sucker punch with that ultra-catchy chorus.”
