22:15 - Smokey Bastard *Cancelled*

*** Due to unforeseen circumstances Smokey Bastard have sadly had to cancel their performance at AYL ***

Formed in early 2007, Reading-based Folk-Punk outfit Smokey Bastard started with the intention of being the UK’s answer to the likes of Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly. After self-releasing their debut album, "Propping Up the Floor" in 2009, Smokey Bastard began incorporating influences from further afield resulting in 2011's "Tales From The Wasteland", released on Bomber Music.

After touring the UK and mainland Europe, playing a live Maida Vale session for the BBC Radio 1 Punk Show and countless festival appearances, Smokey Bastard are now ready to release their third offering, "Back to the Drawing Room". With a more progressive approach to rhythm and song writing, Smokey Bastard are pushing the limits of what you thought Folk-Punk could be.
