The Holy Orders were first told that their amps were too loud in 2006.
Since then, the four-piece from Hull have divided the opinions of many sound engineers. The combination of strong songs, melodies, massive amounts of energy and huge dynamics has gained them a reputation as a ferocious live act.
Their debut album ‘For the Ears of Dogs to Come’ was released in the summer of 2013 and has been gathering acclaim ever since.
After an unusually quite 2016, The Holy Orders have signed to The Adult Teeth Recording Company and released brand new single – Dedicated Follower of Fashioning Misery.
Tom Robinson has championed the band saying: "Just when you've had it with Strokes/Interpol/Editors soundalikes along come The Holy Orders and restore your faith in indie guitar music" He invited them onto The Tom Robinson Show on BBC 6music to play a session and, as well as playing them on his listener requested Now Playing show, they were his choice of new band when he selected his pick of songs on BBC 6music’s The First Time.
The Holy Orders also featured in BBC Introducing’s Ones to Watch list of 2013.
The Holy Orders continue to be loud.
