about

Full debut album from Welsh alt rock’n’rollers, Threatmantics…

Threatmantics are an alternative rock ‘n’ roll band from Cardiff. Legend has it that they first met in a lay-by on the nearby A470. Never a band to respect convention, they have an unusual line-up with viola in place of lead guitar and a drummer who doubles up on keyboards!

November 2008 saw the release of their well-received mini-album 'Upbeat Love' on Domino's Double Six label and now their full debut album 'Kid McCoy' is due for release on cult indie label Folkwit Records.

Threatmantics attempt to crowbar as much into rock and roll as possible veering wildly from heartbroken folk, balls-out rock, spine-crushing metal through to good-time pop. Paradoxical by nature, at times their music sounds as if precariously held together by a fine thread yet cutting through is a strength and assuredness - it's a compelling sound. Described as 'lusty and shabby, elegant and chaotic', they have been regular favourites on Bethan Elfyn's BBC Introducing radio show and are set to find further favour on the airwaves in Wales and beyond. As a live act they've performed extensively in the UK and Europe and at festivals ranging from The Camden Crawl to Glastonbury.
