The trio have enjoyed strong support from the likes of Annie Mac, Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter, Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Radio X’s John Kennedy, Kerrang! Radio’s Alex Baker, Amazing Radio and more. The band also entered Maida Vale Studios in November 2019 to play a ‘Live Gig’ session on BBC Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Annie Mac.
PRANG has not been short of praise from the press with Kerrang! calling it “an album packed with unskipable delights” and DIY stating that GENDER ROLES are “the UK’s most vibrant young punk prospects”.
Forming after a chance initial meeting at drummer Jordan Lilford’s Brighton Pride party in 2015, GENDER ROLES, also consisting of guitarist/vocalist Tom Bennett and bassist Jared Tomkins, found that Brighton’s DIY scene was the ideal hub to cut their teeth and allow themselves to grow as a band. The inspiration and ethos they could draw on in those early days has been integral to the act they’ve become.
While the coastal city remains the band’s home, it cannot be said to have contained them. Gigging throughout Europe and the States, packing out tents at festivals such as 2000 Trees, and sharing the stage with heroes from Jamie Lenman to Touche Amore and Pup, GENDER ROLES have built on those early foundations to amass a growing fanbase, drawn to their melodic grunge/punk and dry, candid sense of humour.
Documenting that growth have been the band’s two EPs released so far, 2017’s Planet X-Ray and 2018’s Lazer Rush. While the theme for those EPs was “overcoming the past and looking forward to the future together”, the new, debut album, PRANG, focuses on much more immediate issues, even if it did come from a particularly happy place for GENDER ROLES.
