The band rose to prominence following the resignation of Labour MP Tom
Watson from the Shadow Cabinet in July 2013, who wrote in his
resignation letter on his blog "be that great Labour leader that you
can be, but try to have a real life too. And if you want to see an
awesome band, I recommend Drenge." However, they had a small following
and had been picked up by national media at least some seven months
Drenge have toured extensively in the UK, and have appeared at
Glastonbury Festival, Latitude Festival, and Reading and Leeds
Festival. They have also toured with Californian duo Deap Vally,
including an appearance close to their hometown at Sheffield's Queens
Social Club. They also toured with British band Peace in late 2013.
They played a headline tour in the first half of 2014, as well as
playing at many festivals over the summer of 2014, including Reading
and Leeds, Glastonbury and T in the Park.
In recent activity Drenge have toured the UK alongside American punk
rock band Radkey, appeared on Later... with Jools Holland, and their
single "Bloodsports" was used for an advert for British TV show
Misfits, fitting the crude, aggressive nature of the show.[citation
Their self-titled album was released on 19 August 2013 on Infectious
Records. The artwork for the album features a photograph of Wardsend
