Hell Fire Jack is an explosive brutal blues duo from Yorkshire, England.

Formed in 2012, the band originally comprised Alex Trewhitt on guitar/vocals and Josef Karl on drums. In March 2019, Josef left the band making way for Alex’s cousin, Max Trewhitt, to enter the fold.

Hell Fire Jack has so far taken their high-octane, no-holds-barred take on the blues to audiences across the UK. 2018 saw the release of their first studio album ‘Chains’, with many tracks being aired on BBC Music Introducing.

A strong reference to mental instability, insecurity and a constant struggle with modern life is evident in many of the duo’s songs. Despite this morose, almost inherently depressive lyrical content, the delivery is anything but. Live sets are fast-paced and uncompromising with fuzzed-up riffs, hard-hitting beats and a fierce vocal delivery.
