ADORE//REPEL are a self-funded four-piece from Wakefield, West Yorkshire; a fiercely independent band with their own record label, their own record shop and café bar, their own studio – which they built themselves – who operate without a booking agent or manager, and embrace everything that has always been so healthy about the DIY ethic. Without resorting to the machinations of the music industry, they have previously self-booked several full UK tours, along the way selling every bit of merchandise they took with them; performed three sell out tours in Iceland; played the Reading and Leeds Festivals; made the BBC Introducing Top Ten Sessions list; released their debut album EMPTY ORCHESTRA on their own label to huge acclaim; and have now played a headline tour of America.
