The Babes is a 4 piece Hardcore-punk-Crust-Celtic-rock DIY line up formed in 2015 and based in London. The guys met in the IMW sound engineering school: A group of misfits that wanted to play Pogue’s type of music that bred in a garage in Twickenham, and before too long The Babes were delivered.
They play snotty, two fingers in the air Hardcore Punk Rock with bagpipes, bringing together Colombian, North American and UK backgrounds and featuring ex-touring members of punk legends Total Chaos and Blitz.
Their released single "Tomorrow Seems So Far Away" took them to their first tour "The Babes invade Mainland Europe" where they had the opportunity to visit France, Germany, Belgium & Holland.
The Babes self-released their debut album "Greetings from London" engineered, produced, mixed and mastered at IMW Studios by Mao Holiday with the support of Colin Smith, David Clark Allen, and Sean Bartle. Right after, The Babes toured Paris, Brittany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, and Spain.
