the DUEL – UK ROCKERS RELEASE EAGERLY AWAITED ALBUM!

the DUEL – UK ROCKERS RELEASE EAGERLY AWAITED ALBUM!

LONDON PUNK-ROCKERS, THE DUEL, SET LOOSE THEIR HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW FULL LENGTH ALBUM ‘ALL ABOARD THE CRAZY TRAIN’, ON 28th NOVEMBER 2011 THROUGH FFR UK.

The Duel pull influence from a range of arenas, but most notably from punk-rock icons such as ‘The Ramones’, ‘The Clash’ and the ‘Pistols’. Merging the raucous energy of true seventies punk with modern guile, and inserting current socially relevant issues, The Duel’s direct and engaging sound is idyllically melded and nevermore potent, given today’s present economic and social climate.

Originally born back in 2001 as a two-piece comprised of the powerful vocals of Tara Rex and the enticing riffs and grooves of keyboardist / bassist Andy Theirum, the combo cut their teeth on the London scene before expanding their line-up. The band’s very first punk show came when the Duel supported the mighty ‘Dead Kennedys’. Further gigging followed before the punk-rockers headed to the studio in late 2006 to put down tracks for their debut record. The Duel’s debut album ‘Let’s Finish What We Started’, released in 2007 and 2009’s follow-up record ‘Childish Behavior’, both secured wide national recognition and many new fans. The band have also garnered impressive national magazine reviews from the likes of Viva Le Rock and Big Cheese magazine.

With a strong DIY and punk–rock ethos, The Duel are no strangers to transit-van touring. The irrepressible quintet have extensively toured throughout the UK, Finland, Switzerland, Holland, Spain, Czech, and Germany; they have also played the UK Rebellion Festival for the past five years, as well as the Rebellion Festival in Austria, Italy and Holland. The popular punksters took centre stage at Skunk Anansie’s and Primal Scream’s after-show parties and also played at The British Invasion Festival in LA. The band were also invited to perform at New York’s legendary CBGB’s and The Continental, just before they permanently closed their doors. Given the vast range and sheer amount of touring that the Duel have overtaken, it is no wonder that along the way the band have racked up supports with the likes of: UK Subs, Vice Squad, Angie Bowie, Peter Hook, Buzzcocks, Sham 69, The Vibrators, Dead Kennedys, and Angelic Upstarts, to name just a few. Now armed with a brand new album entitled ‘All Aboard The Crazy Train’, and UK tour dates planned for the remainder of the year, the underground punk-rockers are geared to amp up their already commendable reputation.
