    NEW BANDS ADDED!!!

    AVAS (ENG)
    Full-blast straight-up high-energy rambunctious rowdy positive melodic hardcore punkers from the north-west of England bring their stagedive and circle-pit inspiring pro wrestling rammy to BYAF to absolutely tear it up.
    http://avas.bandcamp.com/

    BIKE NOTES
    Youthful energy meets grizzly young manhood as we welcome these Edinburgh punks of fine pedigree to Dundee for the first time. From the ashes of our beloved young melodic punk rock hopes The Walking Targets come Bike Notes; older, wiser, still super hooky. The future could be beautiful.
    http://www.facebook.com/BikeNotesUK

    COLDONES
    First Dundee show from this brand new high-octane riot-starting melodic ska-punk three piece featuring well-heeled members of The Hijacks, Maxwell’s Dead, The Upstarts, Third Floor Incident and many more. Definitely a good idea to get those dancing shoes on.
    http://www.facebook.com/thecoldonesuk/

    CARSON WELLS
    The brightest stars in the bleak north-eastern ecossemo sky return to Book Yer Ane Fest to play only their third show of the year having recorded their third LP, it’s our distinct pleasure to welcome one of the most majestic bands in hardcore back to their spiritual home.
    http://carsonwells.bandcamp.com/

    EDGARVILLE (ENG)
    Intense immersive emotional punk rock-informed melodic indie/emo from Blackburn featuring long-serving members of the north-west punk community. Back in Dundee to tread the boards with kindred spirits Terrafraid, the type of bond that can only be forged through months in a van.
    http://edgarville.bandcamp.com/

    ELK GANG
    Edinburgh hardcore stalwarts smashing it out of the park of late return to Dundee to bring us their righteous pummelling melodic post-hardcore punk rock played with punch, pace and passion. On the most solid bands around, expect riffs and fists in the air.
    http://elkgang.bandcamp.com/

    GAY PANIC DEFENCE
    Radical queercore punks from Kirkcaldy bring their riotous cavalcade back to Dundee after tearing up their first UK Tour. One of the raddest and most pro-active bands from the fertile Fife hardcore scene, we’re delighted to welcome these battle-ready troops to BYAF.
    http://gaypanicdefence.bandcamp.com/

    GONE WISHING
    Caustic lo-fi acoustic ecossemo miserableness par excellence from the Cowpunk Family’s most stoic purveyour of beautiful guitar intricacies, splatterpainting storytelling and heartbreaking open tunings. A rare outing in 2017.
    http://gonewishing.bandcamp.com/

    HOLY SNAKES
    The Howlin’ Wolf of east coast cowpunk brings his existential howl and romantic poetry to BYAF to throw down some home truths and soul-soothing soulful acoustic blues to heal weary hearts.
    http://www.facebook.com/holysnakesrules/ 

    JOHN WHEELS
    Young emo upstarts from Perth who’ve spent the year sweating it out in basements across the country and putting out their debut cassette release through pro-active Glasgow DIY label Gold Mold Records. Stoked to have them on board the good ship.
    http://johnwheels.bandcamp.com/

    PAPER RIFLES
    Edinburgh acoustic punk project turned wholehearted hulking political protest punk rock beast bring their righteous hope and fury to Dundee with their debut full-length record in the bag and fire in their bellies. Hooks for days and harmonies to raise the dead. Essential!
    http://paper-rifles.bandcamp.com/

    TERRAFRAID
    Fresh off the MTAT Family Values Tour, Dundee’s skyscraping super-melodic ecossemo/dream-pop playing punks return to BYAF to mesmerise with their immaculate soaring sing-a-long bangers. This year’s “Contentment” album is their best yet and keeps getting better.
    http://terrafraid.bandcamp.com/

    VETO
    An effervescent positive force in Glasgow punk rock, we are stoked to welcome Veto and their uplifting bouncy angst-filled infectious melodic pop punk back to Dundee. Only light can drive out darkness and these punks have it in spades. They’ll join us at Pre-BYAF too!
