The band has been formed in London in 2009 by Mark, Liam, Bart, and Mario. Booze & Glory skyrocketed into fame in a very short period of time, garnering a lot of attention and interest from fans of melodic punk-rock. 2012 was a breakthrough year in the band’s career because that’s when Booze & Glory have been invited to support Rancid and Cock Sparrer at their anniversary gigs. The band has also collaborated extensively with the hugely popular Polish band Kult, which is fronted by the charismatic singer-songwriter Kazik. During Kult’s London gig, Kazik invited Booze & Glory’s Mark onstage for an impromptu duet. One of the songs they performed together was “Leave The Kids Alone” – a song released by Booze & Glory, which has become a staple in Kult’s set list.
The band has released 4 studio albums, a collection of EPs, and has been featured on countless split albums and mixtapes. The band is also producing quality videos – their most popular clip for “London Skinhead Crew” has over 10 million views on Youtube! Booze & Glory cooperates with the best punk record labels based in Europe and the US. Their albums have also been released in Brazil and Japan.
The band has a truly international line-up: in the 8 years of its activity, the band has cooperated with musicians from Ireland, England, Sweden, Greece, Spain, Italy, and Poland. One of the founders of the band, Mark, hails from Sosnowiec in southern Poland and has been the driving force behind the punk outfit.
The punk-rockers are at their best when performing live for a crazy audience. They have performed at some of the best-known festivals in Europe and the US: Hellfest in France, Rebellion in the UK, With Full Force in Germany, and Punk Rock Bowling in the US.
The year 2017 marked two highlights in the band’s path to success: they have teamed up with the legendary Burning Heart Records (Turbonegro, The Hives, Parkway Drive ) to release a widely popular fourth album “Chapter IV” and toured the world – they have played on 4 continents, playing 100 gigs in 16 countries. They have played alongside Dropkick Murphys in Southern America, toured Japan, and joined The Broilers – German punk-rock heavyweights at their tour of Germany.
2018 is shaping up to be the continuation of the band’s successful streak. Booze & Glory are going to be touring across central and eastern Europe and are scheduled to play in the US and Canada before returning to Europe at the height of the festival season.
