We’re putting the spotlight on the hottest and most exciting new bands around with our Introducing feature, ready to highlight the artists with the biggest potential to make an impact on their scene.
London-based rock/metal trio Them Bloody Kids are an reckless combination of stoner doom-edged riffs, groovy nu-metal rhythms with exhilarating chant-along choruses. The band stand out with Seb Moederle-Lumb‘s fast paced vocal lines that communicate the band’s confrontational lyrics.
We caught up with Seb, as well as Darren Maddox and Vein from the band to talk about their origins and what the future holds.

WHAT THE BAND SAY:
DP!: How would you describe yourselves to someone who has never heard Them Bloody Kids before?
All: Energetic, danceable, groovy and catchy lyrics. Old school vibes with a modern twist.
DP!: How did the band form?
Seb & Darren: Darren was actually my boss at the time at the O2 Forum Kentish Town and to cut a long story short, we basically got talking about System of a Down and found out we loved the same music and both wanted to find a band to work with and write stuff we loved so we formed Them Bloody Kids, and here we are 3 years later!
Vein: I met Seb at ICMP while we were both university students. A friend told me there was a very cool band looking for a bass player so I decided to give it a try. I have to admit I was amazed by their music and after playing together during an audition, Seb told me I was the perfect candidate to join the band. In a matter of a few days I felt immediately part of this family, and the rest is history.
DP!: What plans do you have for the future?
All: Touring extensively to get these songs out and making sure everyone gets a chance to see these songs played live. Also we are now in the process of writing the next album which is exciting for us as it’s a chance to write with Vein.
DP!: Which new bands are you listening to right now?
Darren: I’ve been listening to my brand new Sultans of Disco vinyl, its Korean disco music, it’s the dogs b****ks.
Seb: Jo Asteroid have some cracking singles out there go listen to them if you’re into the indie rock scene.
Vein: I recently discovered this crazy Japanese singer Ado which combines so many genres and amazing production. Also a shout out to Nilum and his creepy goth aesthetic.
DP!: Which bands do you aspire to and why?
All: Obviously System of a Down, the ability to play to the crowds they do and create the energy they do purely through their music is insane.
DP!: What’s the stand out moment in your career so far?
All: Something we’ve all dreamed about was doing a music video on a rooftop in central London with an awesome view and we managed to fulfil that dream with the filming of the ‘Do What You Do’ music video right outside of the Millennium Dome, go check that out on our YouTube channel.
DP!: Where do you want to be a year from now?
All: Playing gigs! Man, we miss it. We want to be playing regularly up and down the country at festivals and supporting bigger bands on tour.
Them Bloody Kids‘ debut album ‘Radical Animals’ is set for release on April 23rd and you can buy/download the album online from the band’s official band’s official store (here).
