With “Feeling Fades” the band fulfil their early promise – delivering a brooding, propulsive slice of post-punk recorded with Flood (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Foals). In one of their rare interviews so far, the band have stated they are driven by the genuine desire to affect cultural change, and when frontman James McGovern repeats the lyric “the now elapsed ‘round you and me, and it kept us all together” on this, their debut single, you start to believe that they’re capable of achieving just that.

31st January – Liverpool – EBGB’s
1st February – Cardiff – Club Ifor Bach
2nd February – London – The Shacklewell Arms
3rd February – Brighton – The Prince Albert
