The Pitchforks are a four-piece indie rock group from the Rhondda Valleys consisting of William on vocals, Ethan on guitar, Alex on drums, and Callum on bass. Their first single, Headlock was released in 2016 and the band were subsequently chosen as one of ten bands from South Wales to be coached and developed as part of the Forté Project 2017.

Afflictions was originally released in the summer of 2017 to much regional acclaim. Seeing how well the track was received, the quartet decided to push their music farther afield and are looking for the single to be at the forefront as they steamroll into 2018.

“The lyrics were inspired by a friend’s story about a night at a pub where he decided not to pursue his affection for a girl he was speaking to because she was quite intoxicated.“

The Pitchforks have gigged extensively around South Wales and the Midlands, having played at length in Cardiff, Pontypridd and Merthyr Tydfil, as well as Bristol and Gloucester. Recently, they have played at SŴN festival, have put on numerous sell-out shows around Pontypridd and Cardiff, and have supported Pretty Vicious on their recent tour.
