FRANKLIN MINT + SUPPORT at The Thunderbolt Fri 19 July 2019 from 7.30pm


Franklin Mint

Four times finalists in the South West Metal to the Masses competition despite not being a metal band and with their debut album Scrage voted 6th best of 2018 by the Sunday Rock Show on BCfm radio this Bristol four-piece are coming to the Thunderbolt to play their full-on mix of prog, post-punk and everything in between. Hard to pigeonhole and even harder to pin down this will be one of the rare appearances they make this year as they work on their second album tentatively titled One Day Son, All This Will Be Theirs.

"Twisting tunes, knotty off kilter riffs and sideways lyricism.”

"I've never really heard anything like them before, and I really don't think I'm going to...this might just be the greatest thing you ever listen to.” Metallum Sub Terra

“They threaten to blow the roof off the building...utterly bonkers...daft as a brush, but utterly capitivating.”
