Air Drawn Dagger are a female fronted Alternative Rock band from Sheffield with an eclectic mix of Electronic, Grunge, Punky – Angst- Pop sounds.
The name Air Drawn Dagger comes from Macbeth as it is a “characterisation of an emotional outburst”.
Guitarist Lewis met Singer Maisie in 2014 and began writing songs in her Cake Shop after hours. Early gigs as an acoustic duo in front of old punks at Hardcore shows as well as Tapas restaurants got them playing all over Yorkshire. Twice.
In 2015 Drum Assassin Ross Dore joined the band and their debut release received heavy support from BBC Introducing and the band began building up a cult fan base through constantly gigging across the UK.
2016 saw the band signed a publishing deal and released an EP to a sold out 180 capacity hometown show at Sheffield’s Corporation. This release received overwhelming praise from the underground press such as Hit The Floor, Mosh & Punktastic as well as further support from BBC Introducing Sheffield as singles “…Theirs for the Breaking” & “The Banshee” received further airplay.
