Dublin-based Otherkin announce tour with punk rockers Dead Kennedys this June.
Fresh from supporting Guns N’ Roses at the 80,000 capacity venue Slane Castle in Ireland, along with two headline tours already this year, Otherkin will go back on the road with the incredible punk rockers Dead Kennedys. Metallica legend Lars Ulrich recently played the band on his Beats 1 radio show, saying he was “inspired” by them, and “we have a duty to show off insane riffs when they show up.”
Watch their live session of new track ‘Enabler’ here, taken from the band’s upcoming debut album, set for release later this year.

“They’re a big mass of energy – four guys who write hugely infectious tracks with rough, snarling vocals and grunge riffs.” – The Independent
“‘Bad Advice’ is a hook-filled thrasher that blends the attitude of The Clash with the peppier pop-leaning moments of earlier The Libertines.” – Consequence of Sound
“Matching feral grunge riffs to uproarious, hugely infectious songwriting… The sound of a young band truly coming into their own.” – Clash Magazine
“The driven, dance-along sound of four boys who’ve listened to a lot of Stooges records and hit the Red Bull in a fairly major way. Joyous.” – Classic Rock
