Originally the solo acoustic project of guitarist and vocalist Dan Allen, Ducking Punches are now a punk / folk / rock quintet.

Hailing from Norwich, the band has over 1,000 shows under their belt, including a European tour in 2014 with Frank Turner and Andrew Jackson Jihad, as well as festival sets at Reading and Leeds, Download, Groezrock, FEST and support slots alongside The Hold Steady, The Menzingers, Teenage Bottlerocket, Franz Nicolay and Leatherface.

With four albums, including their first latest on XMR, Alamort, they've collectively cranked the vitality and volume while building melody, texture and drama with violins, gang vocals and amplification – all the while retaining the pace and dynamics that brought Ducking Punches to such live acclaim.
