Following singles Blunder and Futile, which caused a stir in the music press with video premieres on Upset and Gigslutz plus radio support from Radio X and BBC Radio 1, Hull post-punks LUMER return now with their new standalone single Gruel

If you thought it was grim up north, then this distinctly dystopian, and highly addictive guitar driven, bass heavy gem will only help reinforce that image.


LUMER
With slots at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in 2017’s UK City of Culture Hull (the band’s home town) and also Dot to Dot festival in Manchester when it's released, Gruel takes LUMER to new heights in their very short life and meteoric rise as “a band to watch out for in 2017/18”.

On Gruel the four-piece have branched out into something borderline schizophrenic, with their twitchy guitar riffs and warped vocals giving way to something softer and more down-tempo. If you're a fan of Killing Joke you're gonna love this.

Ralph is playing this explosive new single on the Radio KC Indie Show of May 28th so tune in between 5-7pm.

To quote lead vocalist and bass player of LUMER Alex Evans: 

"Gruel is about jealousy, anger and escaping false thoughts.

We had a lot of inspitations for Gruel, but mainly it's a combination of Goth and Post Punk bands like BauHaus and Viet Kong (Preoccupations) as well as being inspired by our environment. Practicing in a datk, damp warehouse building in Hull has shaped the dark nature of the song."
