We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that our next show will be with the fantastic Brighton three-piece Fear Of Men. They’ll be playing for us on September 26th at The Castle, an incredibly intimate venue which only holds 80 people – for a one off incredibly special show to celebrate the launch of debut album Loom.
The group will be no strangers to those who enjoy Manchester’s vibrant grass roots music scene. They’ve played here many times, one even with scene stalwarts PINS as their support act, and most recently took to the Ruby Lounge stage with The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart. Their haunted take on indie pop is whimsical, melancholic, and somehow instantly nostalgic – frontwoman Jessica Weiss’ vocal tones evoke the memory of late ‘80s act The Sundays’ Harriet Wheeler.
The music press are in love with this band too. Clash Magazine have made them Track of The Day three times, Line Of Best Fit gave their album a solid 9/10, and NME made them Radar Band Of The Week, plus gave both Early Fragments (demo) plus the new record dazzling reviews.
Tickets are only £5 in advance and can be bought here. We promise you won’t be disappointed. Come support music in a tiny venue and see one of the best emerging bands out there.
