Indie / Powerpop / Rock


The Butler brothers do what they do best… 60′s jangle rock, 70′s rock swagger, 80′s power pop, 90′s Brit rock all rolled into a contemporary style that’s all their own. It’s like listening to songs you know but haven’t heard before.


If this is your first Smash Palace listening experience, you’ve picked a great place to start because the band just keeps getting better with each release. It’s the sound of a band that’s the real deal; a dedicated band that’s paid its dues and continues to create some of the best melodic rock n roll you’ll ever hear.


The Butler brothers were first discovered by Hilly Kristal at CBGB’s then signed to Columbia Records. The band then moved on to Epic Records and now records for Zip Records. They were rediscovered by label president Art Herman after playing a show at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, 2005. This is the bands third CD release for Zip Records
