Spectres are a band confident in their abrasive nature, happy to stun you with the sheer power of their sound and embrace you in a cacophony of noise. They are not here to be ignored. Having been pacemakers in Bristol’s music scene for some time now, largely through the label Howling Owl where guitarist Adrian Dutt and vocalist Joe Hatt devote their lives to releasing prime talent within the city. It’s now their time to shine with their debut album Dying just released through the reliably top-notch Sonic Cathedral Recordings.

The band celebrate the release with a party at The Lexington on March 4th. so we got to know them a little better first.
