Oslo-based trio, Deathcrush, is an adrenaline-fuelled outfit who playfully meld hip-hop, trash metal & noise-rock with a distinctive aesthetic for a sound that is all their own.

Already renowned for their enthralling live shows, Deathcrush show no signs of slowing down, having just announced they’ll be embarking on an impressive 17 date UK tour in May.

Well-versed in the art of the support spot, having toured with the likes of Battles + Sleigh Bells in the past, the band will share a gruelling schedule of energetic shows across Britain with critically acclaimed US act White Denim, as well as playing a number of headline gigs. Having been asked to appear on the stages of both Artrocker + Drowned In Sound, the trio will also be putting on performances at this year’s Great Escape Festival in Brighton.

The 10 Best Galaxie 500 Songs

If rock-critic clichés never existed, Galaxie 500 would have had to invent them. Named after a classic model Ford that none of the band members had ever actually driven, Galaxie 500 — vocalist/guitarist Dean Wareham, bassist/vocalist Naomi Yang, and drummer Damon Krukowski — began like many eighties bands reared on rock and roll radio and [...]
