THOSE DAMN CROWS | Welcome You To The Official ‘Rock N Roll Cup’ Friday 2nd December 2022.

    Just days after the Wales vs England match being held in Qatar for the FIFA World Cup 2022, Earache Records will be holding its own football match between England and Wales in the Earache Rock’n’Roll Cup five-a-side, combining the true grit of rock’n’roll with the undying passion of football.


    Earache Records‘ UK Top 30 rockers THOSE DAMN CROWS, Scarlet Rebels, and The Dust Coda, as well as some of the finest of its Earache Digital Distribution roster in TOVA and Kit Trigg, will be battling it out on the pitch – either to seek revenge for or cement the victory of their home team in the World Cup match on 29th November.

    The fiery five-a-side faceoff between Wales and England will kick off at 12:30pm BST on Friday 2nd December at Powerleague Shepherd’s Bush in London. THOSE DAMN CROWS will be representing their Welsh homeland!

    Spectators will be admitted to watch the match for free on a first-come, first-serve basis. Those who can’t make it though, can tune into the free live stream at

    Devout football fans, THOSE DAMN CROWS recently created a special Those Damn Crows FC Football Shirt which promptly sold out on release. Apart from championing the Welsh national side of course (the band attended all the Wales games in Euro 2016 too), the boys don’t all support the same teams! This led to some good-natured friction between LFC-supporting members & drummer Ronnie, a Manchester Utd supporter, when the band were not only featured in the Liverpool v. West Ham matchday programme last month but their new single “Wake Up (Sleepwalker)” was blared out across Anfield stadium!

    Earache Records head coach Digby Pearson arranged motivational messages to inspire both teams ahead of the sure-to-be sporting game – for the England team from English former professional footballer and Soccer AM co-host Jimmy Bullard and for the Welsh side, from the 39-cap-winning, Welsh former professional footballer Clayton Blackmore. May the best team win!
