The Hangmen are a three piece band from the North East of England who play their own compositions. Musically they are a punk-rockabilly hybrid often categorised as psychobilly, with dark and often dramatic lyrics.

The instrumentation is vocals, guitar, double bass and drums.

To date they have released eight albums of mostly their own material, one of these ‘Play Dead’ being a live concert recording the rest being studio recordings. They have also released two 7" Eps and a split 7" single. The band have maintained a policy of vetoing against physical re-issues of their past material making their releases scarce, though some have since been made available as downloads.

Their live activities have included many festivals and repeated tours internationally, across countries which include The UK, USA, Canada, The Netherlands, Russia, Germany, France, Finland, Spain, Hungary, Austria, Czech, Slovenia, Croatia and Belgium.
