Modern Rituals play a fuzzed out form of noisy post-punk. They perform as a three piece, though the project exists in differing line-ups with the core song writer Harry Fanshawe, formerly of The Long Haul.
They began life with a demo that was recorded in a day with Sam Thredder at the Cro's Nest, but a debut EP has just been completed with the collaborative help of producers Lewis Johns (Creeper, More Than Life) and Mark Jaspers (Witching Waves, Slowcoaches).
Formed in August 2015, this band is still very much starting out. However, given the experience of their current members, they have already carved themselves a unique and varied sound. Their debut carries the British post-punk sensibilities of The Nightingales or Protomarytr, the heavy fuzz of Ovlov and the pop dynamics of The Lemonheads.
