News: Shapes to Headline PENNYFEST 4

Hatch'd are pleased to announce that this year's fundraiser will be headlined by magnificent alt-punk three-piece, Shapes.

The Birmingham-based trio spent 2011 touring with Glassjaw and Pulled Apart by Horses, and released their debut full-length album, Monotony Chic recorded by legendary producer, Eskil Lovstrom (Refused, Poison The Well, Hell Is For Heroes) to unanimously positive reviews.

Now, Shapes bring their brand of angular hardcore to Derby to headline our bi-annual fundraiser, PENNYFEST, aiding us in our quest to raise money for Penny's Fund, joining You Slut!, younogodie and Ace Bushy Striptease among others, in a line up that we're VERY excited about. If you're a fan of At the Drive-In, These Arms are Snakes et al, you're in for a treat.

Check out the video for Cacophony Of Silence from Monotony Chic
