Stockport’s No Hot Ashes, undoubtedly one of the hottest rising bands around, perform to a sold out Manchester Club Academy on Saturday.

The Manchester gig comes just a couple of weeks after the band revealed their new single Eight Till Late, the first track from their upcoming EP Skint Kids Disco.  The EP was recorded at Magic Garden Studio in Wolverhampton with producer Gavin Monaghan (The Sherlocks, Jaws, Robert Plant).

Formed in Stockport, No Hot Ashes were drawn together by a shared love of 70s & 80s Disco Records.  Eight Till Late finds the band firmly rooted to the dance floor whilst detailing frontman Taylor’s own personal struggles with mental health.  Speaking about the track, Taylor commented, “The single is about mental health and how it’s affected me and people around me. I wanted to give a fairly honest account of how day to day struggles can weigh on the brain, everything from work to your favourite fizzy drinks being tampered with. As a band we think that modern life is all a bit much and taking time to fix your head is essential.”

With festival performances at the likes of Reading Festival, Y Not and Kendal Calling plus major support slots with Blossoms, The Amazons, Spring King and Prides around the UK, Not Hot Ashes have been picking up significant support.  They have also had the backing of the likes of Radio X who dubbed their last release Bellyaches their ‘Track of the Week’ and BBC 6 Music.  Additionally the band were recently asked to perform in the hit BBC drama series The A Word.

Where and when do No Hot Ashes perform in Manchester?

No Hot Ashes perform at Manchester’s Club Academy on 16 December.  The band have also announced another Manchester gig for 31 March 2018, when they will headline at Manchester Academy 2.

Skint Kids Disco is due for release via Modern Sky on 30 March 2018.
