Air Drawn Dagger are a female fronted Alternative Rock band from Sheffield with an eclectic mix of Electronic, Grunge, Punky – Angst- Pop sounds.
The name Air Drawn Dagger comes from Macbeth as it is a “characterisation of an emotional outburst”.
Guitarist Lewis & Vocalist Maisie began writing songs in the back of a Cake Shop in Sheffield before they cut their teeth winning over diverse crowds, from old punks at Hardcore shows to young couples in Tapas restaurants.
Their debut release received heavy support from BBC Introducing and overwhelming praise from the underground press such as Hit The Floor, Mosh & Punktastic. The band signed multiple publishing deals whilst honing their sound, supporting a plethora of artists from genres such as Alt Rock, Metal, Pop Punk, and more…
Within their first formative years, Air Drawn Dagger have embarked on extensive national tours, appearing across numerous festivals, and plunged into their first DIY North American Tour. Building a rabid fanbase along the way, self-proclaimed The Church of Dagger.
Through creating music, publishing Zines, and building a universe within their music videos, the bands’ celebration of not belonging resonates with people who are behind them, building a community. The genre-melting ensemble use gigs as a space to welcome those that don’t belong anywhere else, and to celebrate the darker side of people, in one big therapeutic party.
The future holds a string of new releases, international touring, and more adventures in sound.
