Hands Off Gretel Short Info

Hands Off Gretel are a U.K based alternative rock band, led by vocalist and rhythm guitarist Lauren Tate. There’s a strong 90’s influence throughout their music, with grunge-fuelled guitars, described by the band as ‘Puke’ Pop.

In their brief 2.5 year history the band, Hands Off Gretel have been intent on creating a name for themselves securing a great live reputation. They have toured the UK extensively, with a German tour now successfully under their belt, playing major festivals, including Whitby Goth Weekend, Download, Isle of Wight, Rebellion and a capacity crowd at Camden Rocks Festival. The band has jumped from introducing stages at Rebellion and the Great British Alternative Festival, to main stage the following year.

Louder than War describe them as “One of the most exciting bands in the UK’. Following release of their self releases debut album ‘Burn The Beauty Queen’ in Sept 2016, they secured airplay on Team Rock Radio, Kerrang radio, BBC Sheffield introducing, Rodney on the Rock and their video single premiered with The US’s Alternative Press.”

The band crowd funded the entire release, with Tate producing the band’s videos and designing the vast range of merchandise, and artwork sold via the bands website, which has kept the band touring throughout the year. The band heads into the studio in January to record their second album which is planned for release in June 2018.
