To coincide with their recently announced headline tour for Spring 2020, Barnsley’s ferocious four piece Hands off Gretel have revealed details of The Angry EP set for release on their own Puke Pop Records on 9 March 2020.

The three tracks – SHE THINKS SHE’S PUNK ROCK N ROLL, DON’T TOUCH and BIGGER THAN ME – are all live favourites that fans have repeatedly asked the band to release, and were recorded with Jim Pinder at Tree House Studio in Chesterfield.

The EP will be available on CD and limited edition 10” white vinyl – alongside all major download and streaming platforms – and can be pre-ordered now from: www.handsoffgretel.co.uk

Talking about the EP, singer Lauren Tate, who also designed the artwork, said: “It was great to get into the studio and record some tracks that didn’t make it onto the album. The Angry EP captures the energy and aggression of our live shows, which is something we totally wanted to do after releasing our latest album, which has a more polished sound. The EP is honest and raw, just how punk rock tracks should be, and we know these are favourites with our fans so it’s great to finally release them”.
