Punk Rock Factory come to Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach

Written by on 29th February 2024

Having played their first ever live show in 2021, quickly followed up with sold-out UK tours and slots at festivals in the UK and Europe including Download, Punk Rock Factory are watching their fanbase grow across the globe.

Their autumn UK tour is already being upgraded and close to selling out and now that tours in Australia and the USA are locked in, the band felt they couldn’t keep the home fans waiting any longer and have announced a special 7 date Welsh tour for March 2024.

PUNK ROCK FACTORY “Okay. Let’s do this. It’s been a total whirlwind for our band since it took off during lockdown in 2020. We never expected to be whisked away to the far reaches of the UK and Europe on multiple occasions – but here we are.

However one thing that’s always kind of been pushed to the wayside while we’ve been busy gallivanting around is our home. Our beautiful country – Wales.
Well, that’s changing. Right now. We are going back to our roots. Before PRF was even an idea. Before we had fabulous beards and pink guitars.. we’re digressing here. What we’re trying to say is we’re coming back to Wales to hit up some legendary venues in towns and cities you may not expect to see us. This almost feels like going back in time and reliving our youth.. only playing other people’s songs.

We’re absolutely buzzing to make our way around the green green grass of home. And to make things even better, we’re bringing some amazing up and coming Welsh bands along for the ride.”

PUNK ROCK FACTORY are the kings of turning any song into a pop punk masterpiece. The boisterous four piece from South Wales take all your favourite tracks and make them sound like you never quite imagined they could! No-one is immune – these four lads have adapted everything from Disney classics and assorted rock & pop hits to TV themes from across the decades.

The Welsh pop-punk upstarts have recently released their latest EP, Poor Unfortunate Souls, along with their album It's Just A Stage We're Going Through, both out now.

When Disney’s live action version of The Little Mermaid hit cinemas in May, PUNK ROCK  FACTORY decided to focus their attention under the sea.  The EP’s lead single, & Part Of Your World,& features dazzling guest vocals from ALISSA WHITE-GLUZ, the powerhouse best  known as the lead vocalist of the Swedish melodic death metal band ARCH ENEMY.

Their new album, It’s Just A Stage We’re Going Through, is self-released and features the single ‘Mamma Mia’ (streaming here) alongside 9 other high octane tunes from the new album.  They also paid faithful homage to ABBA’s original video for the track – recreating it frame by frame, right down to the white boots and hair styles. Available to watch here.
