Spawning from the pub in late 2015, SPLURGE are the therapy you need right now...
Originally just jamming as two best mates. For Joe & Rob, the plan was simple - play gigs and get rich. As this obviously isn't the way SPLURGE have proceeded to ooz all over the scene, a back up plan was needed.
Known for the chaos of their live shows and the complete insanity of vocalist and guitarist Joe, the performance is usually seen as a way for the band to let loose of any anxiety or pain they've been building up inside. As a result, the new plan is to stay alive and shout at everyone.
After the release of 2017's Mood Swings - based on issues most of us will encounter in our day to day lives; ex girlfriends, drugs, hating your job and wanting to run away - SPLURGE have stuck to touring and making sure everyone in the country knows who they are. This year also saw the addition of other best mate Jake on bass to complete the trifecta of madness and cause sonic abuse for hours after the set is over.
2018 will see SPLURGE tour again, play some festivals, release new music and hopefully not burn out...

SPLURGE's aim; We don't want to be on the front of HEAT magazine with a Starbucks in our hands, but we wouldn't mind touring 10 out of the 12 months of the year so we don't have to pay rent and can travel the world. Money would also be nice, but not a necessity.
SPLURGE are looking for representation so until pigs can fly, you can contact the band directly [firstname.lastname@example.org]
