The November 5 have been making name for themselves on that London bar circuit that developers are so keen to turn into chain coffee bard and piped music from Satan.

They are one of the reasons that the circuit is so invaluable. Their crafted yet spiky guitar pop defies gravity and is laced with neat melodic touches and flourishes that has all the classic hallmarks but also comes complete with their own magic.

They grew up in a time when music meant everything and you can hear it in their defiant songs that have a sure touch and great hooklines and are platforms for all their favourite psychosis and neurosis.

New Single A Little Knowledge Out March 9th 2015

UK Live Dates Announced

“The November Five hold the flame for all that we love about rock’n’roll” – Louder Than War

A Little Knowledge is the brand new single by rock’n’roll firebrands The November Five (b/w another new track Hot Cell) and is released on March 9th by Montauk Industries. The first new release since their explosive and critically acclaimed debut album, If You’re Satisfied You Are Dead, A Little Knowledge not only continues their sonic journey but also expands upon it. Indeed, contained within its grooves are a rare combination of intelligence, righteous anger and a fierce energy rooted in classic melodicism.

A Little Knowledge and Hot Cell were produced and mixed by The November Five and Simon Trought & Giles Barrett at Soup Studios in London.

Fri 6th London, Nambucca

Fri 13th Bournemouth, Chaplins
