War with the Newts is an international hardcore-grunge band based in Berlin, Germany. With Juan Alberto (Spain) on the bass, Alexandre (France) on drums and Kostia (Ukraine) singing and on the guitar, they rock out to pull Satan out of hell.
In November 2016, Juan Alberto, Alexandre and Kostia were in a bar in Berlin together. Named after the same name satirical science fiction novel, the band’s name War with the Newts was agreed on. A few months later the guys gathered at the old airport Berlin-Tempelhof to record four songs. In March 2017, their first EP „Dead Eyes“ was published.
Inspired by bands like The Bronx and Gallows, and looking back at heroes of their childhood like Mudhoney and Dinosaur Jr., the guys bring some good old grunge with a pinch of hardcore-punk freshness. They deliver a loud and powerful mixture of melancholic melodies and aggressive roar.
