The eagerly awaited Travelling Band's second Album Screaming Is Something is out on 30th May. The day before, Sunday 29th May, they will be one of the biggest draws at the Audlem Festival.
"The Travelling Band take me back to my musical roots. Marvellous music to savour and enjoy" Michael Eavis, Glastonbury Festival
The Travelling Band's shimmering blend of cosmic – country – pop, understated psychedelia, vocal harmonies and nu-folk has made them one of the most talked about artists to emerge from the Manchester music scene – "If you consider the term Mancunian Americana to be an oxymoron, try listening to the Travelling Band. Brilliant." Marc Riley BBC 6 Music.
A recording project in New York City in 2006 led a collective of like minded souls to record what was to become 'Under The Pavement', their debut studio album. Released two years later, the record was very well received by the UK media, gaining BBC Radio 6 'Album of The Day', BBC Radio 2's 'Single of The Week' and a featured song in the Ian Dury biopic 'Sex Drugs & Rock n Roll'.
Although, as The Sun says, "This debut blurs the folk/rock boundaries, delicately intertwining sensitive lyrics with accomplished folk vocals and jangly instrumental accompaniments to form a tapestry of glittering whimsy", their 10-track second album demonstrates a giant leap forward for the band.
Set for a 30th May UK release, Screaming Is Something, which isn't quite soul music, isn't quite folk, isn't quite pop, country or rock, is being supported by a May / June UK Tour (May dates below, with Audlem featured on the band's website amongst a host of major venues) – click on the link below the photo for more information).
