Who we are
Founded in January 2019, Civil War is a new community, promoter and record label supporting D.I.Y. grunge, alt-rock and stoner rock in London and around the U.K.
Named in honour of an iconic fuzz pedal from the 1990s, we want to support our niche in London’s underground rock scene, and to create a platform for some of the incredible music that’s around right now. For too long grunge, stoner & alt-rock bands have slipped through the cracks between the established indie, punk and metal scenes, and we want to change that. We’re not trying to change the world, we just want to put on some killer live shows, and to help promote great music however possible.
Feel free to get in touch if you are interested in playing one of our ‘Civil War’ rock nights in 2019-20 (if you really want to play a show, come down and meet us there). Also, if you want to get on board and be part of our collective, let us know and we’ll try to get your links up on the site for people to find. We run this part time, so be patient and we’ll get back to you.
Despite the political overtones of our name, we are a non-violent and non-political musical collective. We do, however, consider live rock music to be the greatest expression of creative anger, disillusionment and counter-culture, and we want to see these creative energies unleashed on stage through music.
