Well done, keep it quiet, don't get too over excited... you are one of the few clever people to find the hiding place of Instant Species.

Instant Species are a band not a brand and since 1997 we’ve made music we love, played gigs to entertain people and released records with an enormous sense of pride. It's more than a hobby but it's far from a career and it's always fun.

We don't have a "plan" or "bid to be" anything other than 4 blokes playing some music we hope is half decent.

We have released 8 albums, various EPs and a few singles on our own label. You can listen to our music here and download tracks (some even for free).

We hope you like what we do!



  • Saturday 25th October - The Puzzle Hall Inn, Sowerby Bridge, FREE - A return to one of our favourite venues to play, this will also be a double set gig featuring loads of new and old material. Please note this is a change from the original date.
