A modernistic Punk Pop band from South London, which drive a powerful vehicle of energetic Punk Pop with great catchy melodies and hard hitting riffs with great songs.
Loved the new sound of Plague UK, took me back to those first 2 Jam albums when it was all about great tunes and speed. MG
Plague UK now a three piece, Every song a winner, they remind me somewhat of a ramped up early Jam. Simon's vocals are primitive Weller. BG
Plague UK works as a three piece, as Simon plays a sort of rhythm / bass line very similar to Bruce Foxton's role in the Jam. RB
NEW ALBUM available for pre order, official release March 2023
Been driving for just over 10 hours in the last 2 days with Vaccination on loop the whole time and it keeps sounding better and better! Looking forward to the next time I see you guys live which should be Gloucester in July - GD
New album ‘Vaccination’ has a superior modern production job, but the likes of ‘Make A Noise’, Idiot Kid, Fake News could of sprung straight from 1977. ‘Don’t worry (‘bout you and me) is a storming rocker while ‘Shit happens’ and ‘So We Stand’ have a Mod-ish 60’s edge. – SB (Vive Le Rock)
Plague UK are like a Sound Effects era Jam, Or Billy Bragg with balls fronting a Rock band. Poppy, Tuneful and catchy undercurrents amongst the waves of almighty full rock on and pogo anthems. Vaccination is a real shot in the arm, the perfect prescription. A righteous, noteous soundtrack and antidote to these trouble times. MN (nuzzprowlinwolf.blogspot.com)

A bit about us!
Plague UK are a three piece band from South London. The band took on a new look and feel in 2021, with the addition of guitarist Dave Leak. Simon Godfrey went on from being Rhythm guitar to playing the Bass ad continues to write the songs. The material now has a more modernistic Pop Punk edge to the songs with still catchy melodic tunes. Simon and Lee have been in a few bands together which give the rhythm section a very strong back bone in Plague UK. Dave has been in quite a few different bands and brings a refreshing sound to the direction that the band is now taking.
Plague UK have had 2 studio albums, Vaccination and Nothing For Nothing, but now with the new refreshing sound they have produced a new album which is to be released early 2023 called Time To Come Down, an album a relevance and observation.
