This month we release a brand new video to the track 'See It Now', which is a song off the new album, this should be officially released in the next couple of weeks. Also some great news that we see that there could be some restrictions lifted in the next couple of months, so there maybe some light at the end of the tunnel for getting out and performing again, first of which for us is at the legendary 100 club in Oxford Street, London.
The CD & vinyl of the new album Nothing For Nothing is available to buy from the shop, The album has been out now since mid December 2020, and we have had a lot of great reviews,
Review: Being the bands second album following their well received debut 'Vaccination' and it carries on in similar '"take no prisoners" vien. Opener 'Runaway' cold easily be a Cock Sparrer track, but the guitar work sets it apart. 'And You Know Its Time', and the superb 'Walking Through The Dust', come down on the post-punk side of things, whereas "I'm a Mess" is the kind of song the vibrators excelled at in '78'. 'See It Now' embraces the Jam's power-pop-iams with an authentic number, to read more, this review is in the Eaten Alive Fanzine issue 60. thanks to Bison for the review

New album Nothing For Nothing - 'Great in your face album!, Just wanna keep turning it up more and more. Love the energy can't stop playing it'
New album Nothing For Nothing - 'It looks great, Im on my second listen and im well impressed. normally a track stands out straight away but not on this album., they all stand out and i'm struggling to pick a favourite. The sound is perfect and very well mixed.'
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 a 4 piece band from South London, Edgy, Full on Power motivated monster of energy with hungry chords, lead splits and dynamic structures, Plague UK bring something unique to the table. Catchy melodic Punk Rock with a twist of 60's pop sensibility.
Marc Jefferies on lead guitar and vocals, Marc the vocalist and guitarist from the original 76 outfit The Plague, Joined up with Lee Morrell, who was mates with Marc for many years. Lee has been drumming in a variety of bands over the years and teamed up with Marc to recreate the vibe and feel of power and energy that was had back in the late 70’s,
They then met Simon Godfrey rhythm guitar / vocalist from a different project and felt that Simon would be a great addition to the band as Simon and Marc vocals sit really well with each other, and have different styles of guitar flow, which compliments each other. Then all there was left to make the band complete was a Bass player, of which was found with Martin Taylor, Martin was perfect for the outfit, great style, and great sound and his techniques suited this new sound, this new energy. Plague UK is now something to see for yourselves, so you can make up your own mind.
