Loud, grinning, vegan punks from the Faroe Islands

The bisexual vegans Joe & The Shitboys punch with brief and catchy shitpunk songs (they barely reach the one minute-mark).

The band was formed with the intention of calling out shitty behavior in the conservative Faroe Islands where they are from. The rock scene is filled with boneless homophobes and misogynists, says the band.

So, the band chose to call everybody out by making fast punk songs and singing in their faces.

Their shows are full of energy with a barrage of songs such as “Drugs R’4 Kidz”, "Life Is Great You Suck" and “If You Believe in Eating Meat, Start With Your Dog”, being broken up by the flamboyant frontman, Joe, roasting the audience.

After a flurry of hometown shows, including at the Faroese Music Awards where they won Best Group in 2020, the band looks out into the world.

Now the band plots a punchy and chaotic show at Roskilde Festival. Catch Joe & The Shitboys on our Rising stage.
