Leicester Queer punk quartet Kermes’ debut LP exploring themes of transgender identity, depression, misogyny, anti-capitalism, queer relationships and being an increasingly visible target in an increasingly hostile world.
“Kermes know that it is the artist’s business to test and challenge assumptions. They create a literal voice for those who may not have acquired their own way to talk about their gender and sexuality.” – God Is In The TV
“Kermes’ debut album is fierce, raw and imperative in their personal cause, because it’s not just personal, it’s everyone’s business to be as inclusive and accepting as Kermes have made this whirlwind of a record. The tireless East Midlanders are unavoidably contagious onstage and off. They’re a feast of jubilance and dauntless comradery.” – Turtle Tempo
