NO/HUGS: WE HAVE IN/TENSION
No/Hugs is the injection of adrenaline that you need. The band serves the alternative realm with hook heavy pop and an intense pop/punk live show that is sure to keep the crowd on their toes.
Ok! Magazine featured Narcissus A-Ngel (singer) on its June 2019 cover, claiming her to be the heir of legendary Janis Joplin. Her powerhouse, bourbon tinged vocals have been praised by national and international publications to be a must-hear.
No/Hugs was invited by Greek Rock Legend Vasilis Papakonstantinou (worked with Scorpions) to open his shows in Europe at the sold-out festival of EDON in Nicosia,Cyprus. Recently the band completed their Summer 2019 European tour with great success, a headlining sold-out show and sold-out appearances at festivals.
2019 saw No/Hugs on the rise, with an endorsement from AUDIX MICROPHONES USA and a signature microphone (AUDIX VX5) for the lead singer as well as a featured artist at their EXPO stage at NAMM2019. Their south/west coast tour run started with a slot at SXSW2019 as well as a sold-out appearance at the world renowned Whisky A-Go-Go.
In 2018 the band was discovered by Kevin Lyman (Warped Tour's CEO). No/Hugs was handpicked by him to open the last Vans Warped Tour in Mansfield, MA at the Xfinity Center amongst bands like the Maine, Tonight Alive, State Champs, Motionless in White.
The band is anticipating the release of their brand new single In/Tension on September 06th 2019.
