Check out: Drenge “We Can Do What We Want” on David Letterman
This rock duo from Derbyshire, England makes their network TV debut with “We Can Do What We Want” from their album, “Undertow.”
Drenge are an English two-piece grunge / post grunge band based in Castleton in Derbyshire. The band is made up of Eoin Loveless, on guitar and vocals, and his younger brother Rory, on drums. They take their name from the Danish word for “boys”, although it is pronounced differently.
The band rose to prominence following the resignation of Labour MP Tom Watson from the Shadow Cabinet in July 2013, who wrote in his resignation letter on his blog “be that great Labour leader that you can be, but try to have a real life too. And if you want to see an awesome band, I recommend Drenge.” However, they had a small following and had been picked up by national media at least some seven months previously.
Drenge have toured extensively in the UK, also appearing at Glastonbury Festival, Latitude Festival, and will be at the upcoming Reading and Leeds Festival. They have also toured with Californian duo Deap Vally, including an appearance close to their hometown at Sheffield’s Queens Social Club. They also toured with British bandPeace in late 2013. They are going on a headline tour of the UK later in 2014.
In recent activity Drenge have toured the UK alongside American punk rock band Radkey, appeared on Later… with Jools Holland, and their single “Bloodsports” was used for an advert for British TV Show Misfits, fitting the crude, aggressive nature of the show. As of the 25/11/13 they have been nominated for Zane Lowe’s top 100 hottest records with the single “Bloodsports”.
They made their U.S. Network television debut 1/27/2015 on the Late show with David Letterman.
