Rhythms of wrath to get the crowd cheering loud.

We are Big Angry, hailing from the mighty Tauranga. We are passionate alt-rock musicians and ardent bug collectors. Big Angry consists of drummer Ben (graveworm) Watson, lead guitarist / backing voices; Noah Davids, bass guitarist / backing voices; Ashton Deanson, and Acoustic guitarist / lead vocalist; Nixon Ririnui. 


We have been playing together since 2021, but collecting bugs together since the Dawn of time it’s self, Big Angry is an embodiment of your gods wrath. Our philosophy here at Big Angery is to connect people to people.


We like to think our music is a mix of The Smiths and The Pixies. We also draw from Magruda Grind and The Beetles. Rock and Roll!!
