Pedalling a very fashionable brand of melodic post-hardcore, it certainly doesn’t take long to place Manchester based quintet From Embers. Whilst the obligatory soaring choruses and crunching breakdowns abound, the band do occasionally display brief glimpses of variation on their debut self-titled EP, which may prove to see them stand out from the ever massing hopefuls.
Manchester post-hardcore outfit From Embers have announced the release of their upcoming self-titled EP, which will be made available both online and physically from May 25th 2012. You can view the EP’s artwork and full tracklisting below:
Date: February 16th, 2012
Venue: Dry Bar, Manchester
Support: I Said The Spy!, From Embers
Managing to get within the top 10 of the iTunes album chart on the release week of your first label release is an impressive feat for bands of most levels, nevermind that of pop-punk newcomers Decade. However, with their recent self-titled effort they’ve done just that, and with a headline tour to promote the release the same week, this may be the final time you’ll be in such an intimate setting with the guys again.
Date: February 21st, 2011
Venue: The Roadhouse, Manchester
Support: Leopards, From Embers, The Art Of Reason
Website: None available
Despite having released their first proper EP ‘Big Fat Smile’ a few days before the beginning of their current and first headlining tour, Don Broco have managed to reel in a considerable amount of attentione to themselves throughout most of the dates. Their show at The Roadhouse in Manchester is no exception.
