St Paul and the Broken Bones are set to perform at Manchester Academy 2 in the run up to the release of their new album Sea of Noise, the follow up to their 2013 debut Half The City which sold over 115,000 copies.

The rock and soul octet are due to release Sea Of Noise on 9 September.  It’s an album featuring old school R&B, soul, funk and rock, documenting a band going through an artistic evolution, as their sound reaches new heights.

Refusing to settle for the status quo, dynamic lead singer/songwriter Paul Janeway and his bandmates challenged themselves throughout the creative process to create an album that is inspiring, heartfelt and fun; as well as intelligent, thoughtful and socially conscious. The rousing “All I Ever Wonder” challenges apathetic nature, the soulful “I’ll Be Your Woman” redefines gender roles, while “Waves” looks at our societal short attention span, and the firey “Burning Rome” conveys the realization that faith should reside within and not within a manmade framework.

St. Paul & The Broken Bones is: Paul Janeway (vox), Jesse Phillips (bass) Browan Lollar (guitar), Al Gamble (keys) Andrew Lee (drums) Allen Bransetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone) and Jason Mingledorff (sax).

St Paul and the Broken Bones perform at Manchester’s Academy 2 on 22 June 2016.
