Pioneering punk-era band Eddie & The Hot Rods are set to rock North-East venues this month.

Despite losing founder member Barrie Masters in October 2019, the band's spirit remains strong, now fronted by Ian ‘Dipster’ Dean on vocals, with Simon Bowley on drums, Richard Holgarth on guitar, and bassist Mic Stoner, formerly of Chords UK.

The band continues to breathe life into the vibrant music cultures born in the UK, offering 'raw and in-your-face rock 'n' roll' that has made them icons for more than 40 years.

'Guardians Of The Legacy', the band's latest album, was released after Barrie's passing as a tribute to the band's rich legacy.

The album introduces high-energy new tracks like Better Without You, Bad Time Again, and Why Should I Care, offering live audiences a blend of the new and old classics like Teenage Depression, Quit This Town, Life On The Line, Gloria, and their signature Do Anything You Wanna Do.

Eddie & The Hot Rods are set for The Queen’s Hall in Hexham on February 14.
