Returning to Manchester on their 10th anniversary tour, Action Beat are set to headline a devastating show at Kraak this August. Easily one of the most notorious DIY bands to come out of the UK in the past ten years and boasting over 20 rotating members, The Beat are an all-consuming maelstrom of torrential d-tuned riffage, jack-hammer drumming and squalling noise that is at once nihilistic as it is euphoric. They have earned their stripes and a legion of obsessive fans due to the intensity of their live shows, which have swelled to include 6 guitarists and 4 drummers and crucially dependent on audience interaction, as well as a relentless touring schedule that would make even the most hardened DIY band wince. Recently, this destruction unit had the honour of touring and recording with the Legendary G.W. Sok, whose work with The Ex has had a lasting influence on the bands rough-hewn sonic and rhythmic dirge. Now 8 albums deep into their career, Action Beat are at the very apex of their powers, giving them the ability to deliver an undeniably un-fucking-miss-able show.
