"This music is fresh, new and they have certainly potential to become known worldwide and play gigs with their fresh punk sound"


Second Hand Arms Dealer is a brand new Punk Rock Band from Bristol, formed 3 months ago. We have a huge sound with a political edge. Taking influence from RATM, White Stripes, Royal Blood, Sex Pistols and Chilli's

Drawing from multiple different influences means the range of music is vast. From Rage Against The Machine to Ben Howard there are no limitations to the sound this three produce. That being said all of their music has a similar feel. Schofield adds flavor to his drums with counter-rhythms which play with and taunt the listener. Shortman juxtaposes heavy and thundering chorus riffs with beautifully crafted verse melodies running through his intricate pedal board to create a sonic wonder. While Spurrell connects the two with sporadic and funky bass lines while drawing the listener close with his soft voice only to unleash the full power of his blues-rock inspired, angst is driven, an edge of your seat vocals.
