Hands Off Gretel

Upcoming gigs

Hands Off Gretel are a sassy alt rock/grunge pop band from South Yorkshire, who have built themselves a solid live reputation, for shows that are as visually compelling as they are musically. As one reviewer wrote “If you’re a fan of Gwen Stefani style swagger or Nirvana-esque grunge, then you are going love Hands Off Gretel.” The band have completed 4 headline UK Tours and played major festivals including Download, Isle of Wight, Rebellion main stage, Camden Rocks Festival, Great British Alternative Festival and headlined Loud Women Festival in London. The band has also toured Germany and the Netherlands. With a new album on the horizon for 2019, the band have recently released 2 DIY video singles, with both of them winning ‘Track of the Week’ with Classic Rock Magazine. Both tracks also received airplay with Kerrang, Planet Rock, BBC Sheffield Introducing and Sirius FM (US) "Great Band and a great Track " Wyatt Wendells Planet Rock "S.A.S.S A brilliant track from Hands Off Gretel' Christian Carlisle BBC Sheff Introducing "So much attitude in this track from Alt Rock powerhouse Hands Off Gretel” Alan Raw BBC Introducing 'A breath of fresh air to the music industry, they’ve built their reputation on raw talent and hard work, mixing energy, passion and style' Louder Than War "If Gwen Stefani had a baby with Nirvana, it might’ve turned out like Hands Off Gretel. Which, if this is any indication, is basically a very good thing" . Classic Rock Magazine “Getting better and better,” Adam Winch-Furness, BBC Introducing Sheffield “One of the most exciting new bands”, Alternative Press “Energy, chaos, nihilism and debauchery abound, a trip with Hands Off Gretel will leave you spent. A beautifully polished ballet of chaos, costume and drama presenting lyrics that echoes the angst and vulnerability of growing up in 21st century Britain.” Northern Exposure The band are the epitomy of DIY, with all of the bands visuals, videos, merchandise designs being created by front woman Lauren Tate. Hands Off Gretel is Lauren Tate (guitar, vox), Sean Bon (guitar) Sam Hobbins (drums) and Becky Baldwin (bass)
