Scalping are a Bristol based live techno band. Blistering performances are known for astute production formed through a love their hometown’s visionary off-the- wall dance music as well as full throttle noise and punk. Each show is a unique experience incorporating striking visual projections.
In their relatively short time as a band they have supported acclaimed acts such as Marie Davidson, Ho99o9, Holy Fuck, Bliss Signal and HMLTD whilst quickly gaining a reputation for their frenzied closing slots at festivals.
Armed with a battery of squelching synths, animalistic rhythms and gritty, piercing guitars, the band have been meticulous in their selection of shows to deliver the most visceral experience show. Clouded in mystery, their devoted fans are always left baying for more.
