DELILAH BON – the alter-ego of LAUREN TATE from HANDS OFF GRETEL – has announced her first UK tour for the autumn of this year, following the release of her hugely acclaimed debut self-titled album.

Built on the firm foundations of no-nonsense female empowerment, DELILAH BON fuses hip-hop, punk, nu-metal and pretty much everything in between to prick up the ears and turn the heads of an army of women and girls who love what she represents.

I was touring with my punk band Hands Off Gretel and night after night I was hearing stories from young girls being harassed in the crowd,” Delilah recalls. “When I spoke out online, I was met with resistance, and it infuriated me. I had all these words flowing out of me too fast to write down, so I programmed a beat and started rapping for the first time; it was my motivation during a dark time.”

Emerging from a punk rock background, Delilah combines screaming vocals and nu-metal guitar riffs with melodic rap and trashy hip hop beats. It’s a sound that’s hard to categorise.

The music I make is like Cardi B fronting Slipknot,” she explains, “it’s a mesh of all the styles that have influenced me up to now. I flow between two personas – sometimes I’m sweet and sassy; sometimes I’m screaming at you with an axe.”
