borts Announce Debut Album Preach This! Released 25th November 2022 via Lockjaw Records Reveal Lead Single ‘Snow In Hell’ Released 19th July 2022 Stream and share: https://borts.lnk.to/snowinhell
Salisbury, UK punk trio borts are pleased to announce that their long-awaited debut album Preach This! will be released on 25th November 2022 via Lockjaw Records.
To celebrate the news, the band have revealed lead single ‘Snow In Hell’ which is out now.
Commenting on the track, the trio say: “This is a straight up power pop rock ‘n’ roll song about having fun until it’s not fun anymore. It’s like Bruce Springsteen mixed with Cheap Trick played by Superchunk. It came together pretty quickly when we were writing it and was one of the last songs finished for the album. The driving tempo draws on our collective love of Americana songwriters from the late 60s and 70s and is kinda unlike anything we’d written at that time.”
A 3-piece punk band from Salisbury in the South West of England, borts formed from a longstanding friendship and a mutual love for music, films, games, and good old-fashioned hanging out.
Previously cutting their teeth in well-established UK bands Your Demise and Tireless, the friends have now returned in their latest guise with a pair of EPs which will combine to make their 2022 debut album release, including tracks taken from their previously-released and imaginatively-titled four track debut, EP1.
Their 2021 lead single ‘The Nurse’—produced by Lewis Johns (Palm Reader, Muncie Girls, Gnarwolves) at The Ranch—was an ode to self-loathing and love-liking, beer-drinking and collar-bone-breaking. “‘The Nurse’ was actually written about the nurse that looked after Tom when he broke his collarbone by backflipping (half naked, of course) on Bournemouth beach after a NOFX show,” says guitarist Dom, matter of factly.
The band followed up with the one-two punch of ‘Me & The Demons’ and ‘Get Sold’, garnering early radio support from the BBC R1 Rock Show, BBC Introducing, and Kerrang! Radio’s FRESH BLOOD, and a host of blog support online from tastemakers at Shout Louder, Alt Corner, Mercury Magazine, Bittersweet Press, The Punk Site, Dusty Organ, Original Rock, Frontview Magazine, #BrandNew, Upside Down Shark and more.
While the pandemic has kept the band’s live schedule to date lean, the trio have slowly begun ramping things up, playing shows over the last 12 months with the likes of Jamie Lenman, Buds., Carsick, James And The Cold Gun and Snake Eyes.
Further live dates TBA.
