Left Ahead are a 3 piece post-punk/alt-rock band from Hull who have been described as “sticking together the best parts of early Manics with the aggro snarl of classic Dead Kennedys”. That’s a pretty big rep to match but the lead track of the EP ‘Wage Slave’ (listen to/watch the video) is an impressive piece of work that certainly matches the description.
LSF has been lucky enough to catch a preview of the other two tracks on the EP and, while we can’t do a full review, for me the stand-out track is ‘HUS’ = a snarling piece of old-style punk in that Dead Kenndeys vein.
The new EP ‘Man Kills Everything’ can be found on Bandcamp, on the Warren Records website and most major online music outlets from the 5th of April.
You can listen to and buy the band’s 2016 EP ‘Dancing in Hell’ on Bandcamp.
