About The Dangerfields

[source:Wikipedia.org]

The Dangerfields were a punk rock/heavy metal band based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, formed in 2000. Fronted by drummer and lead vocalist Andrew Griswold, the band went through many line-up changes. They released one album and four EPs, and played more than 800 live gigs, including playing their 666th gig on 06/06/06.

They toured with many notable bands, including The Dwarves, Zeke, The Damned, Misfits, The Exploited, Flogging Molly and Stiff Little Fingers. In May 2004, Bruce Dickinson of heavy metal legends Iron Maiden, invited them to perform with him at his BBC 6 Music Road Show at Belfast's Mandela Hall alongside alternative metal band Therapy?.

Bands to have played their debut gigs opening for The Dangerfields include And So I Watch You from Afar and Black Spiders. Fellow Irishmen and former touring partners Gama Bomb recorded a cover version of the Dangerfields' song Maniac on their Zombi Brew EP.

In 2009, Bobby Steele released a line of mullet wig and drum machine combos which he hoped Andrew would sell at The Dangerfields' concerts. However, Bobby then became paranoid and thought Andrew was trying to oust him from the company, and then decided that the entire world wanted him destroyed in a left wing conspiracy; the deal was promptly called off.

The Dangerfields played their final gig in late 2010, and officially split up in early 2011. They returned to the stage in February and March 2014 for two 'one-off' gigs in Belfast and Galway, with a line-up of Griswold, Dan Bastard (lead guitar) and Adam 'The Beast' Sims (bass guitar).
