Equal Idiots are two barking dogs from Hoogstraten who do not only love, but also play garagepunk.
Driven by beer, girls and loud music, Equal Idiots are destroying every stage in the Kempen and beyond since 2012. Every lover of old and modern garage bands like Black Lips, Ty Segall, Jay Reatard and Thee Oh Sees, will understand how raw, energetic and savage their live shows are.
Meanwhile you could have seen them in Antwerp venues like Het Bos, Kavka and Muziekcentrum Trix, where they have opened for living garage legends like Together Pangea, Useless Eaters, Guantanamo Baywatch and Audacity.
They’ve also participated in a number of contests where they didn’t leave empty-handed. “De Zes” (formerly known as Frappantpop) gave them the public price. They already made it to the semi-finals of the prestigious Humo’s Rock Rally 2016 and they have won Studio Brussel’s De Nieuwe Lichting where they played in Ancienne Belgique.
Their single “Salmon Pink” even got featured in Studio Brussel’s hotlist De Afrekening.
Equal Idiots’ debut EP “Judas Reincarnation//Loveless Love” was released on cassette by Oddie Records, the label you probably know best for Double Veterans, Mountain Bike and the Glücks.
2016 will be the year in which these youngsters record new music and try to conquer the world!
The ability to put everything in perspective, together with a lot of ambition and the urge of playing live, make Equal Idiots essential for every gig, festival and six-pack of beer.
Current hitsingle “Salmon Pink” is playlisted @ Studio Brussel and rocketeers ‘De Afrekening’ @ Studio Brussel and hits the number 1 spot for 2 weeks already!
