Forming in 2019 and consisting of Kingsley Hall on vocals, and Robbie Major on synths and noise, with Michael Kitching on drums, Benefits quickly evolved into a highly politicised group that aims to merge noise, hardcore, hip hop, industrial rock, electronica, and an angry social media feed to get it’s point across.

A resolutely DIY outfit they have managed to gain fans as diverse as Sleaford Mods, Steve Albini, Black Francis, Garbage, Billy Bragg and Elijah Wood as well as getting significant features in the NME, Rolling Stone, the Guardian, and the Quietus.

Now an inspiring and formidable live outfit, having toured Europe and played festivals such as Glastonbury and Roadburn, they aim to keep the momentum going as they work on the follow up to their highly acclaimed debut album “Nails” released by Invada Records in 2023.

“Teesside noise punks offer up horror and futility on this stark and essential debut” NME ★★★★
“A stunningly intense listen… it’s a record that introduces a stunning voice, a righteous message, and further reinforces Invada Records’ place as a pivotal stable for outsider voices” CLASH MAGAZINE
“One of the most profound records of this year, maybe even this decade. Authentic, furious, and absolutely vital… Benefits is the band Britain needs right now” FAR OUT MAGAZINE
“A work of volatile physicality, and penetrating sincerity” THE QUIETUS
“Brutal punk sincerity rages against Britain’s dying light…one to watch” THE GUARDIAN
“An urgent combination of noise, rock and spoken word fury” ROLLING STONE
“Benefits are a force of nature, an inspiration” CLASH MAGAZINE
