Hello Cosmos will headline a gig at Stockport’s St Mary’s Church next week.  They will be supported by Big Society and Fondabath.

The comeback show marks an exclusive hometown gig for the collective in the new live-music spot, which is set to feature a string of live experiences.

Hello Cosmos will be playing tracks from their upcoming first full-band album since their 2021 debut Dream Harder including the singles Turn Off The News and The Hot Seat as well as fan-favourites from their catalogue to date.  The event promises a ‘one-off immersive live show featuring music and guests from the Hello Cosmos universe.’

As frontman Ben Robinson adds, “It’s incredible that St Mary’s is hosting shows and we will be debuting our new live show with material from our next record, written in Stockport over the last few years. It tracks the trials and tribulations of the dark days we’ve all seen and the potent feelings of unity, friendship and love that were supercharged by those times. We couldn’t imagine a better place to return to the live stage and speak our truths than Stockport’s St Mary’s… it’s time to begin again.”

Hello Cosmos will be performing as a sextet, with the familiar faces of Ben Robinson (vox/guitars), Simon Robinson (drums), Adrian Ingham (guitar), Angela Chan (violin/synth), joined by new members Elara (sax/vox – who notably appeared on the ‘Golden Dirt’ mixtape), plus Isaac Dobbo (percussion – and of fellow Cosmic Glue labelmates Vacant Weekend).

Hello Cosmos will release their new album later this year.

Supporting Hello Cosmos will be fellow residents of Stockport Mill Big Society and Fondabath.

Founded by RNCM students and friends Thomas Fripp (guitars) and Harry Gumery (bass) and Will Jaquet (drums), Big Society have quickly racked up fans and support from Radio 1, Radio X, XS Manchester and more.  They have drawn comparisons with artists from MGMT to War on Drugs and been tipped by the likes of DIY and Alfitude.

Meanwhile Greater Manchester band Fondabath will perform following their 2023 self-titled EP.  Made up of lead singer Grace Parker, bassist Ellie Morgan, drummer Joel McCulloch, plus dual guitarists Sam Hampton and Nic Malabuyoc, the quintet have already performed at major Manchester venues showcasing their grunge-geared indie-rock through tracks Craving and Apart From You.
