Local upbeat punk band Toxic has recently been on the rise playing shows all over the North East. This local four piece outfit has been gigging all the way across the region and gaining quite a reputation for themselves. With old school punk being something of a rarity these days, Toxic are bringing punk back to the golden days when the Mohican haircuts and leather jackets were in and the music was just as vibrant as the people who played it.
Founded in the summer of 2011, Toxic caters for a wide audience with their unique blend of songs. They play a selection of classic covers including the likes of punk legends Rancid along with their own original tracks. The guys in Toxic clearly have a great appreciation of their musical roots; taking inspiration from both the early British scene along with their American counterparts, Toxic has a great feel that encapsulates everything people love about punk rock. The punk rock outfit have played with a number of musical legends since hitting the stage including the likes of Vice Squad and Ed Tudor Pole.
The 15th of February will see Toxic back in Consett taking to the stage at The Demi. Coincidentally it is just over one year since the band played their first show at the venue with their current vocalist Stephen McCrory. What better way to celebrate a successful year than to come back to the where it all began? Toxic always draw a great crowd of people from all walks of life and this show will be no exception. We can’t wait to see how Stephen, Davey, Leigh and Mouse have matured over the past year and no doubt it will be a night to remember.
Toxic will be playing The Demi with Silva Method on the 15th at 7:30pm. Make sure you get yourself there for a night of great local music. Go to facebook.com/toxicpunkrock to find out more about the band and hear some of their recordings.
