borts release new single and announce livestream gig!

Latest Lockjaw signing, borts, have just conjured up their latest single Me & The Demons, out now on all good DSPs.

The track is the latest to be taken from their newly-announced debut album Preach This! which is set for release in spring 2021 on Lockjaw Records, with further details TBA.

While the lockdown has been keeping them from performing live, the band have ambitious plans to live stream a full borts gig on 11th December 2020 in a bid to raise funds and awareness for much-loved Kingston venue The Fighting Cocks.

Fans can get tickets to the show by buying merchandise from the Lockjaw Records store or direct from DICE here:

Sticking to supernatural autumnal themes, “the song is about my obsession with horror movies and how the pop culture we consume can sometimes match up perfectly with what is happening in our lives,” bassist Tom explains. “Musically, I’d been listening to a lot of Every Time I Die at the time, so the main riff was probably born from that, but the rest is just a straight up rock’n’roll jam.”

borts is a 3-piece punk band from Salisbury in the South West of England, the trio formed from a longstanding friendship and a mutual love for music, films, games, and good old-fashioned hanging out. Previously involved with the likes of Your Demise and Tireless, the friends have now returned in their latest guise with a pair of EPs which will combine to make their 2021 debut album release, including tracks taken from their imaginatively-titled four track debut EP1.
