Blackpool’s Boston Manor formed in 2013 and, in two short years, worked their way to signing with renowned US indie label Pure Noise Records, worldwide. Pure Noise owner Jake Round explains: “When I first heard Boston Manor’s ‘Saudade’ EP I immediately wanted to work with them. The band walks the line between emo, indie and punk rock and offers something for a lot of different listeners. I think they’re a great fit for Pure Noise and I’m very excited about their future here.” ‘Saudade’ is set for release on 20th November, 2015 and the band’s debut full length is expected at some point in 2016.
Building a name for themselves with their modern day emotive punk anthems, Boston Manor have toured and played shows with the likes of Moose Blood, Creeper, Citizen, Me Vs Hero and As It Is and are set to become one of the stand-out gems in the UK’s burgeoning rock scene. They previously self-released their debut EP ‘Here/Now’ in 2013 as well as a Split EP with Throwing Stuff. In 2014 they released their second EP ‘Driftwood’ via Failure By Design Records. The band write, produce and film all their own music videos, meaning that they are always meaningful visual representations of their songs. They’ve had videos played on Kerrang! TV and Scuzz TV and singles have also picked up plays on Kerrang! Radio and the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show.
Boston Manor spent 2015 touring with the likes of Moose Blood, As It Is, This Wild Life, Forever Came Calling and playing festivals like 2,000 Trees, intent on bringing their show to as many eager ears as possible. Also runs supporting Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! along with Trash Boat in December.
And continuing their diligence on the road 2016 will be no exception with a tour supporting Knuckle Puck throughout the UK and Europe now in progress and Slam Dunk Festival appearances plotted so far, as well as a forthcoming stint in the US on the Pure Noise Tour with Hit The Lights, Seaway, Can’t Swim and Casey Bolles in April / May.
