The band rose to prominence following the resignation of Labour MP Tom Watson from the Shadow Cabinet in July 2013, who wrote in his resignation letter on his blog "be that great Labour leader that you can be, but try to have a real life too And if you want to see an awesome band, I recommend Drenge" However, they had a small following and had been picked up by national media at least some seven months previously

Drenge have toured extensively in the UK, and have appeared at Glastonbury Festival, Latitude Festival, and Reading and Leeds Festival They have also toured with Californian duo Deap Vally, including an appearance close to their hometown at Sheffield's Queens Social Club They also toured with British band Peace in late 2013 They played a headline tour in the first half of 2014, as well as playing at many festivals over the summer of 2014, including Reading and Leeds, Glastonbury and T in the Park

In recent activity Drenge have toured the UK alongside American punk rock band Radkey, appeared on Later with Jools Holland, and their single "Bloodsports" was used for an advert for British TV show Misfits, fitting the crude, aggressive nature of the show

Their self-titled album was released on 19 August 2013 on Infectious Records The artwork for the album features a photograph of Wardsend Cemetery in Sheffield and a nearby scrapyard

On 27 January 2015, they made their US network television début on the Late Show with David Letterman
