Burden of the Noose playing live in a kitchen in Brighton

Burden of the Noose played a gig in a tiny terraced house in Brighton a couple of months back. The students living there just save up their money and put on shows every once in a while, setting up the amps and drum kit in the kitchen and having the rest of the house for everyone to party in!

It was a bizarre yet brilliant evening and we had great fun playing with the likes of Gurt and A Horse Called War.

Check out the video below… what would the neighbours think:

Burden of the Noose tour video

Finally got round to publishing the tour compilation video I made of Burden of the Noose when we played a few shows round the UK back in… damn! Late 2014!

Live footage from Bolton, Cheltenham, Birmingham and Nottingham all set to the track Art of Being Weird.


BOTN Gig Review: Anaal Nathrakh + Gore Tech + Conjurer @ Hare & Hounds, Birmingham


A review of our recent gig at the Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath, Birmingham has just been posted on TheMidlandsRocks.com.

The lineup was headlined by Anaal Nathrakh, along with GoreTech, us (Burden of the noose) and Conjurer and this is what the site had to say:

“A step or two ahead of Conjurer are local hardcore headcases Burden Of The Noose. This gig caught them on a high, still buzzing like a hornet from their recent inspiring performance at Bloodstock. Burden of the Noose may have started out a bit like Raging Speedhorn with a double vocal barrage, but for the past year or so they’ve been operating with just as much success with the singing now left entirely to Andy. And what a good job this bearded dynamo does. Jumpier than a box of crickets, the singer careers from one side of the stage to the other, barking out such Burden classics as opening number ‘Circle Of Shit’, ‘Family Affair’ and ‘Deaf And Insane’.”
