Gender Roles

Brighton based 3-piece Gender Roles are the hazy head-banging singalong soundtrack to a summer pool party with your best mates
The last 18 months saw the band sell out headline shows across the UK as well as tour across the UK & Europe with bands such as Touche Amore, Pup and Boston Manor. As well as a live Radio 1 Maida Vale Session with Annie Mac, several Radio 1 & BBC6 Music plays, the band were also selected by Spotify for global New Music Friday playlist for their single ‘Plastic’.


Gender Roles released debut album, PRANG, on 30th August 2019 through Big Scary Monsters Recordings. The album was recorded and produced by Ian Sadler at Emeline Studios, Kent, over 10 days. The album builds on the hook-laden yet heavy signature sound laid out on previous releases and focuses it across 10 cohesive tracks taking issues from all areas of life and putting them in a positive frame. Just a month after the release  of PRANG, the band embarked on a sell-out UK tour, already sparking mass singalongs to album tracks such as ‘You Look Like Death’, ‘Hey With Two Whys’ and fan-favourite ‘Bubble’. 

“While it’s the immediate catchiness of their grunge-flavoured alt-punk that hits you first, closer inspection reveals jittery math-rock riffs, the occasional heroic guitar solo and hints of the quirkily expansive attitudes to songwriting  often found in the works of Biffy Clyro or Steven Battelle. PRANG is a party you won’t want to leave early and Gender Roles are only just getting started.” Kerrang! Magazine Aug 2019
