Supporting Russ ahead of album release
Manchester’s Prose are set to perform at The Ruby Lounge supporting Russ ahead of the release of their debut album Home Of The Brave (due for release on 8 July through Naughty Records/Virgin EMI Records).
The album takes all the elements which formed the band and builds them into an authentic working class album – tales of life, stories of love and growing up on a Manchester council estate. Their latest single Further is a song “about a relationship that’s failing and becoming toxic,” says frontman Mike Murray. “how things get said and done out of hurt and sometimes we take it too far, or hold onto it for too long when we know we should just let go”
The band has also recently collaborated with the Big Issue North to sensitively tell individual stories of homelessness in four Northern UK towns. The first in the series featured track All Too Familiar and told the story of frontman Mike Murray and his very personal story of homelessness when he was 17.
After being signed by high profile Brit producer Naughty Boy to his own record label, the band have been on a steady upwards trajectory and proving themselves to be an incredibly promising new voice in British music.
Previous single Home of The Brave saw them receive great radio support from BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart.
Prose have also gained previous support from BBC Introducing Manchester, as well as radio plays from Huw Stephens and John Kennedy.
Prose perform at Manchester’s The Ruby Lounge on 24 May 2016, supporting Russ.
