HAWXX are an alternative metal band made up of Anna (vocals/ guitar), Hannah (guitar / backing vocals), Jess (drums/ backing vocals) and Julia (bass/ backing vocals). We are London based but hailing from Greece, Wales, England and Italy. Our sound is made up of four-part harmonies, drop tuned heavy riffs and progressive drums.
We write songs about oppressive beauty standards, mental health struggles, violence against women, self empowerment, the tales of being a norty gremlin and much more. We write songs that we need to sing, as vehicles of catharsis, love and rage.
We are a feminist band and it is our aim to be part of changing the landscape of the rock and metal world and for our gigs to be a safe space for women, trans and non binary people.
Summer of 2022 saw us embark on a tour across the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands supporting Tremonti and play Download Festival, Radar Fest, Great Escape, Summer Breeze in Germany, Burn it Down Festival. We have since been endorsed by Jackson Guitars, Rotosound Strings and Victory Amplifiers. In recent times, we have also won the PRS Women Make Music Award, played a exclusive performance at the Heavy Music Awards and played a packed out tent at Bloodstock Festival, described by Metal Planet as an ‘I was there’ moment. Hannah and Anna were also listed in Metal Hammers List of “13 metal guitarists that will change the world”
In the summer of 2023 we will be releasing our first album.
