If there’s a single word to define Saint Agnes, it’s committed. Two words? Fully committed.
Hailing from the UK, this ferocious four-strong outfit are all about honest lyrics, intense vocal performances (from Kitty A. Austen), plus rage-fuelled music intended to give a voice to those closer to the fringe than the centre.
As much gang as band, Saint Agnes seek to empower those who’ve been battered and bruised yet refuse to lie down, and it’s a thread that runs deep within ‘Bloodsuckers’ – SA’s first album for Spinefarm, the follow-up to 2019’s ‘Welcome To Silvertown’, issued on the band’s own label.
In addition to ‘... Silvertown’, Saint Agnes have released a number of singles, videos and EPs, embarked on headline tours in both the UK and Europe, and appeared at a host of festivals, including Download, 2000 Trees, Isle of Wight and Kendal Calling; but it’s now, in 2023, that they’ve fully hit their stride, confirming a spring / summer European run with Monster Magnet, and defining precisely what it means to be a fully paid-up member of the Death or Glory Gang.
One thing’s for sure, it’s got nothing to do with rule-books or playing it safe...
