London duo JOHN’s simple and straightforward name belies the energetic noisy punk they create. Only a year after releasing their acclaimed debut album, God Speed in the National Limit, the two Johns have shared the stage with a long list of beloved UK bands such as Pulled Apart By Horses, USA Nails, and IDLES. The latter love JOHN so much that they invited the duo to join them on their European tour, opening up their shows for a little over a month starting the end of October.

Our Song of the Day, “Balfron,” is the opening track on God Speed in the National Limit, which will be re-released by Breakfast Records on compact disc on October 19. Watch the video for “Ghost Printer,” directed by Sergio Angot, below.
