INTERVIEW: Ducking Punches set for Old Town House this Thursday

Ducking Punches

AN emerging songwriter has described venues like Warrington’s Old Town House as integral to UK culture.

Less than a year after it has opened it has become a hub for the town’s alternative scene with numerous bands performing every weekend, including some from overseas.

As heard on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Ducking Punches from Norwich will be playing in Warrington in support of their new album, Alamort (out now via the Xtra Mile Recordings label).

Their brand new single ’I Ruin Everything’ has recently had a music video released which you can watch below.

An earnest and insightful invitation into the world of the East Anglian quartet, this latest video also sees the band open up about the making of their triumphant new studio album and how it threw them an emotional lifeline in a time of greatest need.

Speaking about this latest single and video, Ducking Punches frontman Dan Allen says:

“This is the most honest song on the record for me and writing this song saved my life in a very dark time, I was pretty close to checking out…. Charlie (the director) asked us all individually one question “What does the record mean to you?” Making this album made me feel alive again and those release shows really cemented that for me. I think it’s why this video is so special. Charlie did an amazing job on it.”

The record saw them cast off Dan’s acoustic roots for an altogether heavier, full band sound. Read more about the bands journey in their interview with Warrington Guardian in Thursday’s copy or online here now.

Ducking Punches perform at Old Town House with Jake and the Jellyfish and Arms and Hearts on Thursday. Doors open at 7pm.
