ADORE // REPEL have launched a new single and video, FRACTURES / IN TIME, their first new material since their debut album, EMPTY ORCHESTRA, which was released last year to a multitude of highly positive reviews. The new release follows their rammed performance at the LONG DIVISION FESTIVAL in their home town of Wakefield earlier this month and is a further demonstration of their powerful, devastating and essentially instrumental sound.

Not bad for a self-funded four-piece from Wakefield, West Yorkshire; a fiercely independent band with their own record label, their own studio – which they built themselves – their own record shop and coffee bar, who operate without a booking agent or manager, and embrace everything that has always been so healthy about the DIY ethic.


Many bands follow a similar path. The difference perhaps with ADORE // REPEL is that, without resorting to the machinations of the music industry, they have previously self-booked and played several full UK tours, along the way selling every bit of merchandise they took with them; performed three sell out tours in Iceland; played the Reading and Leeds Festivals; made the BBC Introducing Top Ten Sessions list; and self-released their debut album, EMPTY ORCHESTRA, to huge acclaim.




… A debut album of this calibre in such a volatile industry is something to be marvelled at; unique, thought-provoking and intense. They have a very bright future ahead …” THIS IS SOUNDCHECK


… Everybody has different tastes but no matter what you listen to, this really is something special; it’s so good it could transcend all music tastes …” LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE


… Music that calls to mind rusty jeeps, dusty roads and the howl of a wolf pack baying for your blood; you’ll want to stick your head out of the sunroof for a gulp of fresh air then jump back on the accelerator before this album gets the better of you …” MOTLEY MAGAZINE
