WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAMME

Witness Protection Programme are a noisy post-punk five-piece from Newcastle Upon-Tyne. Gliding observational social commentary within descriptions of more banal aspects of modern life their songs convey morbid despair coated in tongue-in-cheek cynicism. Drawing influence from 80’s Goth and post-punk, along with later post-hardcore music, the band’s energy is melancholic and abrasive in equal measure.
