Guitarist Lewis and vocalist Maisie immediately began writing songs in her shop after hours after meeting in Sheffield. The duo quickly found themselves playing to everyone from old punks at Hardcore shows to young couples in Tapas restaurants. This is where they cut their teeth winning over diverse crowds.
The band were quickly signed to a publishing deal in 2016 and released an EP to a sold hometown show at Sheffield’s legendary 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.
By their 3rd year as a band, they were building a universe through their music videos, selling out UK shows, and embarking on a DIY north American Tour. Last year saw the band release new music from their own studio, appear across numerous UK festivals, and headlining shows throughout the UK for their rabid fan base.
The future holds new releases, the launch of their debut Zine, and International touring.
The name Air Drawn Dagger comes from Macbeth as it is a “characterization of an emotional outburst”.
