BYENARY are a two-piece queercore punk band from Brighton bringing trans experiences to the forefront of their agenda. Born from the pain of being Assigned Flawed & Miscreants At Birth, Byenary's stripped back drum-and-guitar sound simultaneously smashes heteropatriarchal binaries while setting foundations for the future of trans liberation.
BYENARY sees the combined musical experiences of folk punk singer songwriter Chuck SJ and drummer Jaca Freer (Colour Me Wednesday) merge into a heavy yet theatrical punk outfit that moves from comedic to tragic to uplifting to pure rage and back again during their live performance.
Having completed their first UK tour in May with queer feminist label Hell Hath No Fury and playing provocative drag/punk rock shows with sibling band Pink Suits, they're ready to take the stage at Trans Pride Brighton 2019 and are preparing songs for their first record.
"Shredding manically, with an immovable angst, the warriors took us straight into the heart of injustice – it was an incredibly encouraging performance to watch; it seemed to inspire feeling of a revolution." Ray A-J, Gscene
