Middleton’s finest indie band Courteeners are ready to once again blow away audiences all over the lands. Band members include drummer Michael Campbell, guitarists Daniel ‘Conan’ Moores and Liam Fray who provides vocals with Joe Cross on bass. They are poised to release their exciting new album Mapping The Rendezvous.
Having been friends since school age, the four lads have always played a major part in one another’s lives and continued to stay close whilst Fray moved to study in Manchester. There he began to perform as a band under his own name, initially recruiting Campbell and eventually roping in Moores plus former member Mark Cupello.
The change in line up prompted a change in name and in October of 2006 they performed under the new name of Courteeners. They were quick to impress and their name spread through word of mouth through relentless gigging resulting in prominent TV appearances. By the end of 2007 they already had released the singles Cavorting and Acrylic.
They were approached by famed producer Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths) with whom they recorded their Top 20 hit single Not Nineteen Forever. The sessions also produced their 2008 debut album St. Jude which smashed straight in #4. The bands further releases have cemented them as one of the most important bands this generation. Their records include Falcon (2010), Anna (2013) and Concrete Love (2014).
Their fifth studio album Mapping The Rendezvous is due to be released in October. The upcoming release has fans and critics wild with anticipation, further fuelled by the recent airing of the first single The 17th.
