Leatherneck are a North West grunge quartet releasing their EP 'Lighting Up The Tilt Sign' via Close To Home Records on August 5th, 2016.
Recorded in the winter of 2015, following a lineup and name change (the band were formerly Bohica), the EP represents a time of unpredictability and transformation for the band. Speaking of the release the band said “Lighting Up The Tilt Sign’ is when we were finding our feet and direction, so within these changes came the uncertainty of being in an unfamiliar place. The songs represent these themes for us pretty well”.
Stemming from the North West DIY circuit Leatherneck combine 90s emo with the sludgy tones of early grunge, creating a sound that echoes the bleak surroundings of North West England. After a stint on the road with Simmer and Water Canvas in spring, the band will be out again in support of the EP this summer.
