The multi-talented and outspoken London-based punk-rockers Barking Poets channel their passion for old-school heroes such as The Clash, Ramones, Kinks and The Who but mix this with contemporary influences from The Gaslight Anthem, Frank Turner, Green Day and Rancid.


Their rocking debut album, 'Back To Abnormal', was released late last year on CD and digital channels to great acclaim, and now, at long last, there's a limited edition clear vinyl 12" version available!


The Barking Poets mini-album was produced by Paul Tipler (Idlewild, Elastica, Reuben, Placebo) at Stereolab's studio in South London.

'Back to Abnormal' is as bold as it is romantic with six sing-a-long street anthems all wrapped up in cover-art designed by illustrator and tattoo-artist Dan Allen, front-man of Ducking Punches.


The release's title is a nod at the young environmentalists who claim we shouldn’t return to the dysfunctional pre-covid system and this topic is central to several of the new tracks, especially the sarcastic 'Children of the World Wide Web'.


The band support and donate to the #saveourvenues campaign run by the Music Venue Trust so the ongoing venue crisis and gentrification of clubs and pubs is desperately addressed on the track 'When The Bands Are Gone, their upcoming new single.


The Poets sing about austerity, racism, climate change, self belief and populist politics, all sound-tracked by riffs galore, so you'll be jumping around, or just tapping your feet and singing along in no time.

These punkers have a lot to say and people need to listen.


Back to abnormal tracklist:

When the bands are gone

When I am king


Children of the world wide web

Make me strong

Slumming it


This is the 12" clear vinyl release.
