When we got an invite to one of the highest-octane punk tours in the UK this year, there was no way we were passing that down. Enter the effervescent Dan Buckingham, and a night to remember in the Welsh capital…
Ho99o9 (Horror), the fast-paced thrashing mutant freax with an insatiable propensity for world order, peace, anarchy, chaos & macabre.

Having taken the European festival circuit by storm over the summer with riotous performances at the likes of Reading & Leeds, Visions, The Great Escape and Pukkelpop, LA-based duo Ho99o9 are set to bring their aural assault back to the UK for a clutch of five shows in December.
