Hector Gannet’s new single ‘Dead Nag’ is out now. Having supported Sam Fender in Newcastle it’s been a big week for them!

Quickly becoming one of the most exciting up and coming artists around, Hector Gannet are rapidly winning over the ears of some of the biggest names in the business. After touring with Sam Fender in 2019, he said “I just want to thank Hector Gannet (for supporting), he (Aaron) was a couple of years below me in school and he’s a great songwriter.” 

Their incredibly tranquil blend of clean guitar work, euphoric vocals and outspoken views have made for the perfect peaceful protest since starting out in 2017. Now in 2020, they’re starting the year as they mean to go on with a true statement of intent. ‘Dead Nag’ is out now and marks the origins of an album project scheduled for release in the Autumn.

‘Dead Nag’ has been released with an accompanying music video that was shot on a farm in rural Northumberland. It projects a farcical and almost panto-like image, which reflects how the class system and politics often come across. Yet among this, as with the song, there is a very serious side of how some people are downtrodden, and how inequality is as much evident now as is it was in the dim and distant past. 

Recorded at Polestar Studios near Newcastle (ran by Pauline Murray and Rob Blamire of punk band Penetration), ‘Dead Nag’ was produced by Paul Gregory of Lanterns on The Lake and the artwork designed by British Sea Power’s Matthew ‘Woody’ Wood. As well as their studio work, the band are making a mark on the live circuit too. It’s no surprise that the band are selling out venues across the North-East.
