The UK Punks latest release introduces listeners to a more mature Fair Do’s sound.
Manchester’s Fair Do’s are a powerhouse of technical melodic hardcore, combining hardcore punk and metal, bringing on a new skate punk era. Their latest track, 1000 Miles, released earlier this month, catapults their sound to the next level, at breakneck speed.
The track is a throwback to the OG’s Bigwig and Slick Shoes. Chopping and changing, keeping the listener engaged for what’s coming next. Unpredictable chord progressions draw you into the track in the best possible way. Fair Do’s latest output demonstrates the development of their sound into a heavier, richer mix. Previous tracks Casket, Love & Light and Consolidation, sit alongside 1000 Miles introducing listeners to a more mature Fair Do’s sound. Still, they are every bit as technical as their fans would expect.
Formed in 2008, Fair Do’s have established a following of dedicated fans around Europe, playing with legends like Lagwagon, A Wilhelm Scream, Frenzal Rhomb and H20. Having grown up in small working-class towns around Manchester, they have an underdog mentality that resonates in their lyrics, which are both politically focussed and firmly tongue-in-cheek.
They released their debut album Leopards on Lockjaw Records in 2018 – an adrenaline-soaked collision of hardcore punk and metal that captures their explosive live show’s energy and technical prowess. Their earliest release Trying Times was released on Pumpkin Records in 2014 and remained a firm favourite of skate-punk fans.
Fair Do’s latest output demonstrates the development of their sound into a heavier, richer mix. These tracks introduce a more mature Fair Do’s sound, but they are every bit as technical as their fans would expect.

Need more punk in your life?
Everyone should have a soundtrack playing loudly in the background of their life. I was born moshing to my own beat and have never swayed from my love of music. Spreading my passion through the written word is my soul’s purpose. My punk heart beats loudly with the rhythm of my rock soul. I plan to continue to mosh like no one gives a shit.
