“Ragnarok is a beast of an album from these punk soul rockers from South London. This fierce untamed album jumps through all varieties of rock, from the overpowering dark heaviness of opener ‘Be Your Man’, to the catchy melodious ‘Joy’ and back to the angular punk of ‘Meccano’. The band, made up by brothers Dave (vocals, guitar) and James Lightfoot (bass, bv’s), Jonny Barnard (guitar) and Alastair ‘Flash’ Thorpe (drums) set to work on the record after a very successful/messy tour of New York. Using the excitement and energy of the tour they’ve created a monster that’s ready to be unleashed on the world. The Fades will be celebrating the launch of the album at London’s legendary venue, The Borderline on September 29th, Supporting will be Red House Glory and The Dead Wolf Club.”
We first featured `The Fades` towards the end of 2006 with the powerfully self-destructive track `Kalashnikov`- Fast forward a couple of classic Indie-Rock long players and a handful of explosive EP`s, the Richmond four-piece are set to shake the iconic London venue `The Borderline` from it`s Soho foundations. The new release dips into perpetual Punk-Rock melodies and their trademark lyrical negativity, these guys won`t go down without a musical argument. I`m quite relieved The Fades overall sound and approach to making music hasn’t altered for trends sake, the formula remains largely unchanged with maybe a darker, slightly meaner edge. If your ears indulge in a spot of Maximo Park, Hives or Kasabian and openly reject the conventional alternative radio rock, Ragnarok could certainly be the answer.
