The Travelling Band

Finding themselves championed by 6 Music’s Marc Riley and the Eavis family even before self-releasing debut album ‘Under the Pavement’ in late 2008, quickly established Manchester outfit The Travelling Band as ones to watch very closely. Even through adversity, untimely reduced from a six to a five piece prior the release of sophomore album ‘Screaming is Something’ (2011) they continued to evolve and progress as a more diminutive unit. Recording in isolation on the Isle of Mull the album furthered their growing reputation for song-craft and harmony laden ethereal-pop production style.

Over five years and 400+ shows since their formation, the band have garnered an enviable reputation as one of the U.K’s tightest live acts and hardest working bands. These factors captured perfectly within their two live albums, highlighting an ability to utterly feel, not just play music, adapting the painstakingly recorded versions, adding rawer elements.
