"Like Sonic Youth from the bowels of a haunted well"
Stool Pigeon
Spectres are a noise rock band from Bristol. Slowly gathering acclaim with their uncompromising sound, they won Artrocker Magazines 'Unsigned Act Of The Year' in 2012, the magazine describing their live show as 'a tornado tearing through a nail factory; a bracing experience indeed, and teetering on the brink of beauty'

Since escaping the confines of a small seaside town and burrowing themselves into the UK’S DIY scene, Spectres have swelled into an uncompromising beast. Harnessing the negative reactions from baffled crowds, and finding influences in the more depraved bowels of guitar music (Sister- era Sonic Youth, A Place To Bury Strangers’ total sonic annihilation and Royal Trux’s squalid, filthy noise on Twin Infinitives, to name just a few) as well as harsh electronic experimentalism, the band have managed to crossover into territories where noise music is usually never mentioned.

2015 saw the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Dying’, the reaction of which lead them to spew their noise all over Europe and back again, whilst finding the time to record an alternative James Bond theme, release one 7″ every single day as part of the Howling Owl & Sonic Cathedral ‘Record Store Day Is Dying’ campaign as well as preparing ‘DEAD’ the newly announced record which is a total reworking of their debut, with contributions from Mogwai, Factory Floor, Loop, Hookworms, Richard Fearless + many more, released in March.
