The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing play their first London headline shows of 2017, trying out new material for their upcoming fourth album.

2016 saw the band tour the UK and America, make their Download festival debut and generally thrash the hell out of their acclaimed third album, Not Your Typical Victorians, snagging gongs for Best Band, Best Album and Best Frontman at the Pure Rawk awards along the way and playing a triumphant hometown show at the O2 Academy Islington.

By contrast they've kept their heads down in 2017, working on their own projects in and out of music, surfacing only to play Glastonbury and a handful of support slots. But beneath the waves, away from prying eyes something has been coming together. Something new. The time has come to unleash it on the world.

TMTWNBBFN formed in 2008, when former Creaming Jesus frontman Andy Heintz and cult comedian Andrew O'Neill combined music hall with punk and metal as the opening act for O'Neill's Victorian-themed stand up show. The line up was expanded to a full band in time to be adopted by the burgeoning Steampunk scene, before finding fans across the musical spectrum with their unique take on twisted Victoriana, punishing riffs, big choruses and dark humour.

Since settling into their current line up in 2010, completed by bass player Marc Burrows and drummer Jez Miller, TMTWNBBFN have released three full albums, as well as assorted EPs and one-off tracks. Their most recent record, Not Your Typical Victorians, was widely acclaimed as their best and most forward-thinking yet. The foursome continue to expand their musical horizons as they gain fans the world over. 2018 will see them celebrate their tenth anniversary with a new album and tour. Both will be punk as fuck.

Fiendishly entertaining a taste worth acquiring Terrorizer
