Dream Nails are a punk force to be reckoned with. Founded by feminist activists in 2015, this hotly tipped band of witches mix political rage with contagious pop punk joy, winning hearts (and funds for abortion charities) wherever they go.

Their critically-acclaimed debut album is out now on Alcopop! (UK/World) and Dine Alone Records (North America). Receiving rave four-star reviews from Kerrang!, NME, Clash, DIY, Upset and Dork, the LP was one of Kerrang!’s most highly anticipated underground releases of 2020. The four-piece have built a reputation across the UK and Europe for their riotous live shows, including touring with Anti-Flag and Cherry Glazerr and headlining Glastonbury’s Sxsterhood stage three times in a row. They are championed by Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson, Amy Lamee, Jack Saunders, Huw Stephens, and John Kennedy on UK radio.

Dream Nails’ energy and youthful power promise to set your soul on fire. From 2021, the band are joined by non-binary activist and performer Leah Kirby on lead vocals. With “an effervescent sense of fun that fizzes throughout” (DIY), this band of punk witches are “ready to change, take on, and disrupt the world” (Upset).
