THE ABC CLUB: new up

Things have been so quiet with the ABC Club I had almost thought they broke up. But alas, here they are with a brand EP which is available for pre-order now with an immediate download of 3 of the 4 tracks.

Whilst the band has an undeniable knock for hooks, the NME comparison to Two Door Cinema Club isn’t quite fair. The band peddles in something more angular, something a tad bit darker. Early singles showed the band following in the footsteps of other quality acts from the north, like the Wedding Present and Arctic Monkeys, and people noticed. The band nabbed support slots for Wild Beasts, Bombay Bicycle Club, and Glasvegas, and generally became the toast of Halifax. And they’re quite a bit better than the adverts of the bank that shares a name with their hometown.

Their EP new White Lies is scheduled for a 16 April release. They play Manchester’s The Road House on 30 March as part of the ace “Underachievers Please Try Harder” night.
