NEW ALBUM ‘IT’S JUST A STAGE WE’RE GOING THROUGH’ OUT MARCH 31, 2023
SNAP UP FINAL FEW TICKETS FOR THEIR NEARLY SOLD OUT FEB/MAR UK HEADLINE TOUR
Pop-punk powerhouses PUNK ROCK FACTORY have unleashed their latest single and video getting the infamous PRF treatment, a cover of the well known hit ‘You’ll Be Back’ from the globally acclaimed musical, Hamilton. The track is included on their highly anticipated new album, It’s Just A Stage We’re Going Through, an 11-song collection of songs from musicals, due to land on 31st March.
The band comment, “When we heard ‘You’ll Be Back’ from Hamilton, we absolutely knew it had to go on the album. It’s equal parts sinister and endearing and already a sing-along anthem, begging to be a rock hit!
We worked with Sitcom Soldiers for this music video, and shot in their studio in Bolton. It’s the first time we brought in a new team, and didn’t create the video ourselves DIY. We also had great fun dressing up in regal style outfits too. Also, you’ll notice we’re lacking a bass player in the video… Benj’s first child was actually born two days before the shoot so he had to miss out on this one!”
Since their debut self-release in 2019, PUNK ROCK FACTORY have been steadily gaining a colossal online fan base. The cultural sensations have already racked up over 26 million streams on Spotify and 5.1 million likes on TikTok, with 250,000 followers on Instagram, and over 11 million views on YouTube. No mean feat for a band you’ve never heard of (‘til now)!

PUNK ROCK FACTORY are the kings of turning any song into a pop punk masterpiece. The boisterous four piece take all your favourite tracks and make them sound like you never quite imagined they could! No-one is immune – these four lads from South Wales have adapted everything from Disney classics and assorted rock & pop hits to TV themes from across the decades.
The group rehearse, write, and record everything themselves in their own purpose-built studio in Wales, affectionately known as The Sausage Factory. They regularly include a wide range of special guests in their music, which have included the likes of actress/singer Jessica Darrow (Disney’s Encanto), Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup), and Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills) amongst others – next welcoming Simple Plan’s Jeff Stinco for a face-melting solo on ‘Waving Through A Window’ (from ‘Dear Evan Hansen’).
With festivals practically queuing up to book them and all their headline shows continuing to sell out across the board too, don’t miss an opportunity to catch them on stage if you can!
New album It’s Just A Stage We’re Going Through is set for release on 31st March.
