Never miss another 'The Twang' show
The Twang + Jaws
The Twang will be taking a short break in late September / early October for a final run of dates in support of their critically acclaimed album '10:20' released in November 2012.
The band plan to release lead single 'The Wobble' from their new LP in early September and will be hitting the road with rising Birmingham based band Jaws.
This event takes place at Manchester Academy, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Birmingham indie-rock five piece The Twang first found national fame when the NME wrote an article of the West Midlands music scene, and were very soon picking up awards, covered by a Radio 1 documentary and smashing the charts. Their success story includes three UK top 40 singles and two top 20 albums, with their debut 'Love It When I Feel Like This' reaching no.3. The boys celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2017.
The Twang tour dates
Jaws are an indie rock band formed in Birmingham in 2012 after singer Connor Schofield had posted a demo online that received enough positive feedback to encourage him to start a band with friends from Halesowen College. They have often been identified as part of the Digbeth-based B-Town scene. Their sound definitely draws influences from the Shoegaze scene with hints of 90's alt-rock and grunge found on labels like Sub Pop.
"Seductive with swirling guitars complemented by lead singer Conor Schofield’s beguling vocals. It’s a single of self determination, reminiscent of The Smashing Pumpkins softer work from the ‘Siamese Dream’ period" - The Sphinx.co.uk
