The Ramonas are the UK’s best tribute act to the iconic New York forerunners of punk; The Ramones.
The band began in 2004 and has since evolved into the ultimate re-creation of the 1976 spirit of the definite garage punk rock band. Known for high energy performances that thrill the audiences with all the classic songs, you better be going to see them play!
"Touring, Touring is never boring" and these girls are guaranteed to play high energy, full throttle one hour shows that’ll leave you buzzing for more of that 1976 spirit. Their relentless shows and non-stop touring has earnt them the label of one of the hardest working bands on the scene in recent years.
The Ramonas not only perform sets of Ramones tunes; since 2016 they have also written and released a number of self-penned albums and EP’s which include their hits First World Problems, Speak Up, The Daily Fail and more!
"Blasting the tunes relentlessly, one after the other with barely room for a single breath in between, this band are passionate and dedicated to what they do, without becoming the Ramones they really embrace their tenacity and spirit, and they rocked the bustling Maze on this night with a vigour." - Generation Hush
"The Ramonas rocked hard - if there is such a title as best tribute act - then this band deserves the aforementioned accolade like no other! Front woman Cloey Ramona’s (no, everyone’s) performance was one hundred per cent physical and simply stunning." - Louder Than War
"Their vocals and harmonies are present throughout the album and give an elegant sheen over the hard-rocking riffs" - Punctuation Mag
With over 10 years touring the punk scene as the premier all-girl tribute to The Ramones, 2016 saw The Ramonas launch their eagerly anticipated self-penned material.
Their debut EP ‘You Asked For It’ (2016) was released in response to fans requests to hear some new material. It was met with rave reviews from across the globe and was a taster of things to come from their forthcoming debut album.
Their debut album ‘First World Problems’ released in September 2017 and was met with an overwhelmingly positive response. Oozing the intensity, power and energy of a live ‘76 Ramones set, ‘First World Problems’ also encompasses many of the girls wider musical influences with hints of early B-52’s, The Cramps, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Runaways, Descendents and Mötorhead. The album also draws influences from 90’s rock, grunge, pop and the girl’s more recent contemporaries.
They also get the approval of punk royalty Charlie Harper, who appears on the album.
The bands' follow up release ‘Acoustic Problems’ was launched in 2019 to accompany a series of acoustic performances and in-stores. Their mini album ‘I Want To Live In Outer Space’ was released in 2020 and latest release ‘Haphazard’ is now available on CD at via all major download/streaming platforms and the offical store.
