“On its new EP, Abandonment continues the anarcho-punks’ mission to amplify the “marginalized majority,” but — somehow — noisier than before.”
“Bad Breeding lay waste to your ears with a hurricane of guitars and vicious vocals that carry the same in-your-face power as early Ceremony, Paint It Black or Cerebral Ballzy, but with a uniquely bleak British twist that could only come from growing up somewhere like Stevenage.”
“Bad Breeding are one of the UK’s true punk voices.”
“The grievances of the marginalised majority are articulated with an impassioned frustration.”
NPR earlier this week revealed the third Bad Breeding single Dehumanised, taken from their new EP Abandonment out now on One Little Indian Records.
The Stevenage-based anarcho punks recorded the EP on the eve of a European tour, in one room in Berlin with Ben Greenberg (Uniform) at the controls. The result captures all the urgent turbulence of their live show, bristling with an uncontained power.
Bad Breeding will also host a headline show at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington on International Workers’ Day (1st May 2018) to help raise funds for People for People – Stevenage, a locally-run group that provides relief for marginalised sections of the town’s community.On the four tracks that make up the Abandonment EP, the band engage in an honest and attentive fury that avoids ulterior motive. True to themselves and where they come from, the band fix upon an irrepressible surge of agitation that is, in every sense, important at a time when ‘profit negates life’, when the neglected are ‘left to sink’ and when there seems to be ‘no end to disillusion’.
