The Underdog Gallery, 6 Crucifix Ln, SE1 3JW London


The Retribution Alive road trip continues in April as we make our way back to the Underdog Gallery in London Bridge for part one of the 'Wasteland Series', a two event celebration of everything doom, sludge, stoner, groove and everything inbetween!

We have the infectious doom/stoner rock of the very recently returned GROAN supported by The Brothers Keg and Sail. The night also sees former Zocalo members take to the stage for the first time as SEASON OF THE WITCH as well as Jukebox Monkey and Orphan Gears!

We'll also be playing the whole 'Through Smoke, Comes Fire' EP from THUUM!

The Retribution club night keeps the neighbours awake until 1am!

So far the diverse metalisation of Retribution Alive has breached the walls of such venues as the Intrepid Fox, Scala, The Lounge, Purple Turtle, Black Heart, The Dev, Electrowerktz, Unicorn, Nambucca, Underdog Gallery, Big Red, 12 Bar, New Cross Inn, Fiddlers Elbow, Amersham Arms, Wig & Gown, Amwell Arms, Upstairs @ The Garage, Kings Arms and the Plough & Harrow! Get along to April's edition at the Underdog Gallery!

Wasteland Series - Part 1

GROAN

"Doom diehards will absolutely love this album's dedication to walloping, great riffs" - Kerrang!

"Awesome, mind-expanding riffs so spaced out they're practically aliens" - Terrorizer

"Reminiscent of Cathedral at their most unabashedly rocking... Groan can't help but be a good time... infectious and fist-pumpingly dopey... [The Divine Right of Kings is] an easy record to be excited about and I can't think of a reason not to be. Recommended." - The Obelisk

"This is what all 'Stoner Rock' is meant to be... 10/10" - Doommantia
