Drenge unveil ‘Face Like A Skull’ video – watch

The garage rock duo release their debut album later this month

Drenge have unveiled the video for their new single, ‘Face Like A Skull’.

Click above to watch the promo, which was directed by Big Naturals. The single is released on August 26, a week after their debut, self-titled album hits the shelves. Brothers Rory and Eoin Loveless’s debut will come out through Infectious Records and features recent single ‘Backwaters’ alongside ‘Bloodsports’, ‘Dogmeat’ and ‘People In Love Make Me Feel Yuck’.

Following the release of ‘Drenge’, the duo will embark on a UK tour in September. The run of dates starts with three London gigs, before the tour moves onto Bath on September 12. The band will also play dates in Guildford, Tunbridge Wells, Reading, Penzance and Truro before ending up in Milton Keynes on September 21.


The duo recently admitted that they were “not totally overjoyed” about being drawn into a political story after they were cited in Tom Watson MP’s resignation letter earlier this summer. “It’s got nothing to do with us really, we’ve had no involvement in it,” drummer Rory Loveless told BBC Newsbeat. “It’s just a guy signing off in a quirky manner and mentioning us… I’m not totally overjoyed that it happened but at the same time I don’t really care. I’m glad he’s a fan and that other people have discovered us through it.”

Drenge will play:

London St Moritz (September 3)
London Bar Tipsy (4)
London Black Heart (5)
Bath Moles Club (12)
Tunbridge Wells Forum (13)
Guildford Boileroom (16)
Reading South Street Arts Centre (17)
