Rambunctious pop-punk rascals PUNK ROCK FACTORY are ready to turn your world quite literally upside down with the release of their boisterous new single “Defying Gravity“ and its official video. Made world famous by the hit musical ‘Wicked’, PRF‘s reimagined track joins 10 more high-octane bangers on their highly anticipated new album, It’s Just A Stage We’re Going Through, set for release on March 31 and available to pre-order now at the link here.
The band add:
“Defying Gravity is a song our fans have been begging us to reimagine for a long time. After we did a short clip of it on TikTok and the fans went crazy it was clear to us that we had to add it to the album. We had great fun breaking the song down and adding our PRF spin to it, and are super happy with how it came out in the end.
We worked with Sitcom Soldiers on this video again, after how awesome ‘You’ll Be Back’ came out. We found an awesome upside-down house in Thurrock to film the video in so the perspective looks amazing. When we arrived there it took everyone a good while to acclimatise to the house as it wasn’t just upside down but slanted too, which made walking around extremely difficult, let alone playing!
It’s got us performing and doing all manner of silly things while hanging off the ceiling. Try not to get sea sick!“
Since their debut self-release in 2019, PUNK ROCK FACTORY have been steadily gaining a colossal online fan base. The cultural sensations have already racked up over 26 million streams on Spotify and 5.1 million likes on TikTok, with over 250,000 followers on Instagram, and over 11 million views on YouTube.
Feast your eyes and ears on the spectacular official video for “Defying Gravity” as The single is available on all streaming platforms now!

ABOUT PUNK ROCK FACTORY:
PUNK ROCK FACTORY are the kings of turning any song into a pop punk masterpiece. The boisterous four-piece take all your favourite tracks and make them sound like you never quite imagined they could! No one is immune – these four lads from South Wales have adapted everything from Disney classics and assorted rock & pop hits to TV themes from across the decades.
The group rehearse, write, and record everything themselves in their own purpose-built studio in Wales, affectionately known as The Sausage Factory. They regularly include a wide range of special guests in their music, which have included the likes of actress/singer Jessica Darrow (Disney’s Encanto), Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup), and Spencer Charnas (Ice Nine Kills) amongst others – next welcoming Simple Plan’s Jeff Stinco for a face-melting solo on “Waving Through A Window“ (from ‘Dear Evan Hansen’).
With festivals practically queuing up to book them and all their headline shows continuing to sell out across the board too, don’t miss an opportunity to catch them on stage if you can!
New album ‘It’s Just A Stage We’re Going Through‘ is set for release on March 31.
