MANCUNIAN indie merchants The Courteeners are unleashing another single on the public.
They will release their latest single, Acrylic, on October 22 on A&M/Loog Records.
The single, which showcases singer Liam Fry’s wry lyrics inspired by the world around him, will come at the end of The Courteeners’ tour of the UK.
They will perform throughout October at a mix of headline shows and support slots for The Coral.
The tour will see them headline Manchester Academy 2 on October 11, supporting The Coral there on October 12 and play further support slots at Leeds University on October 13 and Sheffield Octagon on October 18.
The Courteeners have been a name to be reckoned with in the North of England for some months, selling out Manchester Academy 3 prior to signing a record deal or even releasing a note.
The Courteeners first made their mark at In The City 2006 in Manchester, despite only having been a group for six months.
In May, they delighted Huddersfield crowds as the first band on stage at the People’s Party on St George’s Square, headlined by The Ordinary Boys.
They made their first London appearance in August and played a sold-out gig.
Radio 1 and NME are tagging the band as the next big thing and their singles have been getting steady airplay.
But things are expected to really take off once they release their debut album, which they are going into the studio to record once their tour ends.
