Drenge is the self-titled debut album by British band Drenge. It was released on 19 August 2013 on Infectious Records. The album reached at #39 on the iTunes charts upon its release.[6]

The album received mostly positive reviews with Clash Music describing the album as using a "brand of raucous, nihilistic, grungy garage punk" as "thrilling", as well as stating that "The thrashing energy [heard in earlier tracks] does relent somewhat towards the end, yet this remains an impressive introductory manifesto."[5]

Their single 'Bloodsports' was nominated for Zane Lowe's 2013 Top 100 Hottest Records.[7]

The artwork for this album features a photograph of Wardsend Cemetery in Sheffield and a nearby scrapyard.
