“An urgent combination of noise rock and spoken word fury.”- Rolling Stone
“…scorching, heavily politicised spoken word, roared with overwhelming intensity over
punishing electronic noise…” – The Quietus
“…cathartic, relentless, unifying, unmissable.” – Narc Magazine
“I fucking love Benefits.”- Steve Albini
Today, critically acclaimed Teesside agitators Benefits return with the announcement of their much-anticipated debut album ‘NAILS’. The return is accompanied by the news of the band’s signing to Invada Records (BEAK>, Billy Nomates, and more), as well as a stunning video for their new single ‘Warhorse’, which is also out today.
In their four years of existence, much has changed for Benefits. Over lockdown, they morphed from spirited guitar-led punks into overwhelmingly brutal harsh noise-wielders, whose furious, eviscerating music garnered them the kind of word-of-mouth following most artists can only dream of. Frontman Kingsley Hall’s spoken (and screamed) vocals acted as a righteous rebuke to the divisive, xenophobic, poisonous rhetoric coming from elsewhere, spread by those who stand to profit from the fallout, that had all but overwhelmed our public discourse.
