ANGER ISSUES LAUNCH TIMETABLE RELEASED

At last, Anger Issues will be finally released in may 2018.

The album has taken four years of blood sweat and tears and contains some simply amazing tracks to mosh to…..

Timetable; so get very excited…..

January: Anarchy Reigns are giving away one of the best tracks on the album. Yep you have read correctly, GIVING AWAY. All you have to do for the month of January is followthe link from Facebook or the website, fill in a few basic details and you can download the track HYPOCRISY absolutely FREE!!!

 

Hypocrisy is a hard-hitting song about how many people you meet are so dishonest. In fact much worst than that, they are two faced, spread evil and create havoc. We should cut them from our lives.

February: Anarchy Reigns will launch their first single New Dawn which will be available as the normal download and CD, but will also be a 12-inch Limited Edition Picture Disc which is wicked!


New Dawn is an apocalyptic view of the earth. We have destroyed it through our own stupidity and ignorance. We need to search a new place to live. It will take many light years. But don’t worry. Everything will be all right won’t it??

April: Anarchy Reigns will release the second single from the New Album Liberation. Liberation will be available as a download from the normal sites.

We in the West know best don’t we. Of course we do. We march into counties and free them from their “Monster” of a Dictator. As soon as he falls, all the people now Liberated, life is much better..or is it???

May: The big Launch Month. Anger Issues is finally released.

14 tracks of industrial metal that will blow your mind. Emotion will run through every song and touch you. The massive guitars of Joedy, the pulsating heart of the band, Andy and Wally pumping out the rhythm, the amazing undelay of keys from Eddy C, topped up by the operatic vocals of Hitch at his awesome best.
Book it in your diary now.

Go and buy the new Album of the Year….Anger Issues.

Anger Issues will also be available as a Limited Edition Picture Disc Record.
Wicked.
Get it.
Feel it.
Read it then lovingly Play it.
Be VERY AFRAID!!!

As Right as Reigns – Anarchy Reigns, the New Salvation for British Metal

How many false dawns the British metal scene has had over recent years? Time after time, it has fallen to the old campaigners to resurrect themselves from their crypts for yet another tour; another live album; another reissue. Ruinous for the fans financially, occasionally demeaning for acts who had pleadingly declared themselves retired and leaving a genre which once proudly waved a “new wave” banner looking sullenly at its shoes.

Anarchy Reigns may be the boot in the arse that British metal needs. Seemingly completely unfussed as to what public perception of them may be, they arrive in our lives as they do on stage – clad in full-length leather jackets, bearing disgruntled expressions and via a spaceship called New Dawn. If only two of those statements seem possible, rest assured all our true, lead Anarchist, Hitch, making his way onto stage at a recent gig on a Cyprus beach (!) in a manner that perhaps only Funkadelic’s George Clinton has before him. Is it ludicrous? Of course it is. Have you paid to be entertained? You’re welcome.

The Anarchy Reigns manifesto includes not just their music but their social media empire, which has amassed an extraordinary following, all eager to please their new master. By submitting their trivial acts of anarchy, they are supporting a much larger war Hitch is waging against the multitude of injustices that face the average Joe on the street, plus a few that he’s just narked about himself. Liars, the lead track off their forthcoming EP, is typical of their output – riff-heavy rock of an early 80’s vintage with an industrial edge to add an extra layer both onstage and in the studio. It’s accomplished without any rampant mould-breaking and, despite the political rants, it’s jolly good fun. Whether other bands follow Anarchy Reigns’ example remains to be seen, but so long as they stay the distance, we’re in safe hands.

FEATURED BAND: ANARCHY REIGNS

In case you’re late to the party, Anarchy Reigns aren’t just a band, they aren’t just political agitators – they’re a way of life.

 

Headed by the gargantuan totem of rock and revolt, Hitch, they are first and foremost a thunderous rock band with an underlying industrial rumble who excel on the live scene. However, even before releasing a note, they have captured the imaginations of the world with their social media activity which has led to what can only be described as “a cult” of loyal followers. Anarchy Reigns the Band; Anarchy Reigns the Brand; Anarchy Reigns the Revolutionaries.

With over 220,000 organic likes on Facebook and with an average post garnering 1000 shares, they have instigated the formation of an army of followers who have bought into Hitch’s acts of minor anarchy – disobeying “keep off the grass signs”; carved Halloween pineapples; mislabelled signs – subtle insurrection to a soundtrack of devil horn flicking rawk!
Featuring the inimitable Hitch on vocals; Eddy C on keys; Wally on bass; Joedy on guitars; Andy on drums, they are a band you can immediately fall in love with, have fun with but also share in their rather more serious moments where they tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues, whether they be the failings of the so-called democratic system or injustice happening just around the corner from you. Their live shows are already the stuff of legend, with a recent sold out gig on a Cyprus beach seeing Hitch ‘landing’ on stage via his space ship, New Dawn, to an accompanying welcome of flames and pyrotechnics. Yes, you did read that sentence correctly.

Anarchy Reigns bring fun and brains back to rock music, with their dedicated following snapping up their prized limited-edition merchandise and eagerly awaiting the notoriously unpredictable Hitch’s next move. Anarchy Reigns arrive just when the world needs them most. Your new heroes; your new inspiration; your new favourite everything. Long live Anarchy Reigns!

June 2016

Anarchy Reigns release first free song Liars Liars.

The song is about politicians and how they may start off with the best of intentions, ultimately end up as Liars and Cheats. The samples used are about the biggest lie ever told in politics, weapons of mass destruction. The song was released soon after the production and release of the Chilcot Report.

The song is available through many platforms to gain some awareness for Anarchy Reigns. Initial response from Rock Journalists has been very positive.:

“I like this (Liars) but I'm sure there is something harder, faster and dirtier in his locker..show us what you got big boy..!!”   
Karyl Simonsen - S&M Rokk

“Anarchy Reigns can confirm they do have something faster and dirtier in their locker. They cannot wait to unleash the beast…….”
“LIARS, LIARS...Even the Queen agrees with these guys!! Give 'em a break!!”
Ed Frett - Riffola

“LIARS - damning verdict of our political system dressed up in some good ol' Rock + Roll!!”
James Tee - US Now magazine

“Lots of passion and a good sentiment dressed up in some good ol' fashion Rock. Simple vid which thankfully does not detract from the message.”
Jonny Rox - Get Ya Rox Off

“Not really my thing but like him or hate him you can't ignore him. Larger than life song, video and artist!!”
Sue Miles - ed - World Music Week

“Screams out of the speakers at you till you get the message. Video is not for the faint hearted either. Loved the solo.”
Chip Neilson - Guitar International Mag

“An honest song with an honest message, check out the video as well. Love the production on this.”
Kelly Peters - Rock Hard Magazine

Liars - Anarchy Reigns / Blistering guitars and a strong message. We like..!!”
George O - Fret Music

“Straight to the point and no mistake. Rock with bite!!”
Dan Headly - Rock-Out magazine
