Bottler were the ex-members of the bands you never knew, wanting nothing more than to play and record punk rock music. Assembled in 2013, the band navigated the London punk scene and played a bunch of shows with bands from all over the globe such as Red City Radio, Pears, Elway, The Human Project, Wank For Peace and The Gamits. The band were inspired by 90s melodic punk favourites such as NOFX, Face to Face, Millencolin, Lagwagon, Bad Religion and No Use For A Name, which can only be a good thing.
Bottler followed the punk rock tradition of DIY, most notably demonstrated by their well-received first release on Disconnect Disconnect Records, ‘Smithereens’ (March 2014), which was recorded and editing via home studio(s). It has been said that the EP has ‘a distinctly London feel’ (Already Heard), with ‘witty lyrics sung to catchy melodies that will stick in your head and keep you awake all night’ (ThePunkSite.com). These normcore punkers are striving, with vigour, to encourage fans to sing along, throw fists in the air and passionately tap their feet. A second, and final release came in September 2015 with ‘Rotten Routine’, a six track effort mixing their skate punk and pop punk influences to create five catchy punk rock tunes, plus a cover of The Cure’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’.
The band split in 2016 following frontman Dave’s relocation to Australia.
No shows booked at the moment.
