The bisexual vegan shitpunks, Joe & The Shitboys, formed with the intention of calling out shitty behaviour in the conservative Faroe Islands, where the rock scene is filled with boneless homophobes and meat-eating misogynists - and continue to take their aim at general vibe killers everywhere.
The live shows are full of energy, with a barrage of songs often under a minute long, like “Drugs R’4 Kidz”, "Life Is Great You Suck" and “If You Believe in Eating Meat, Start With Your Dog”, being broken up by the flamboyant frontman roasting the audience relentlessly.
The band have played every local venue there is, from G! Festival and the Faroese Music Awards - where they won Artist of the Year - to DIY gigs on roof tops, public toilets, underground tunnels, museums, skateparks and more.
The response to their 2019 show at Iceland Airwaves led to a slot in the converted NME 100 tips list for 2020 as well as extensive bookings from major festivals (that never took place) and the announcement of their first UK/European tour - now happening September 2021. Having already played Eurosonic and The Great Escape (online) the band stop off at Old Blue Last in London, as well as playing Dot To Dot, Wide Eyed and Sound City Ipswich.
The blistering 10 minute debut album 'The Reson For Hardcore Vibes' received rave reviews from the likes of Iggy Pop on BBC Radio 6 Music, NME, DIY, Dork, The Line of Best Fit, Gigwise, Brooklyn Vegan and more, with album 2 expected to land this November.
