Crystal-Palace duo JOHN (TIMESTWO) are set to headline The Deaf Institute in Manchester next Wednesday, bringing along the energy and vigour that they are known best for with their savage punk-influenced alt-rock style.
JOHN comprises of drummer and vocalist John Newton and guitarist John Healey (hence the band name). However, even though it’s just the two of them, this uniquely thunderous band is a force to be reckoned with. Sophomore album Out Here on the Fringes offers an idiosyncratic view of the everyday mundane moments in life, including fan-favourite ‘Future Thinker’, a roaring anthem with powerful vocals and chugging riffs which almost makes you feel like you’ve been hit by a freight train at 1000 miles per hour.
The new album follows their debut God Speed In The National Limit, a 2018 European tour with the critically acclaimed BRITS nominated breakthrough band IDLES and a live session performance with one of America’s most popular radio stations, Seattle’s KEXP, which you can now see on Youtube.
After touring with IDLES back in 2018, JOHN quickly rose to popularity after winning over the hearts of punk lovers from across Europe. However, it’s now their turn to show fans their kinetic and powerful energy on their very own eleven-date headline UK tour, which kicks off in Manchester and finishes in Southampton, with alt-rock outsiders Dead Naked Hippies supporting. For fans of alt-indie band Crows and British punk duo Slaves, JOHN is not to be missed.
Tickets can be purchased here.
