Headline tour for Hands Off Gretel

Combining the rage of riot grrrl and grunge mixed with bubblegum pop, Hands Off Gretel released their second album in 2019 and back it up with a lengthy tour, with dates right across Spring.

Singer Lauren Tate said about her teen years: “I felt so ostracised and alone, like I didn’t fit in anywhere. It became my mission to sing for the outcasts, the weird kids, the ones that feel misrepresented in society and left behind like I do. I made it my obligation at 15 to make as much noise as possible as a young woman, to challenge everything.”

“Our tour in 2019 was fantastic; we had so many sold out gigs and we’re hoping we can do the same in 2020. The crowds have definitely grown and it’s nice to see the hard work finally paying off; playing to a full room is what any band works towards.”
